I have fired a LOT of different sniper rifles, and I would have to agree with the above statement. Several rifles I've fired will get down to .25 on occasion, but I was consistently doing it all day with the Tango-51.
The rifle is based on a Remington 700 action that is blue printed to Tac-Ops specs. They use their own Tac-Ops stainless steel or chrome-molly match grade barrel. The head-space is adjusted to .001" or less. Tac-Ops also uses their own custom precision ground recoil lug. The standard remington trigger is jeweled and adjusted to a crisp 2.5 lbs. All metal parts on the rifle are finished with Bridsongs proprietary Green-T® and Black-T® finish which can be seen in the closeup shot below.
These rifles are EXTREMELY accurate, and user friendly. Several large agencies both Federal and local have adopted the Tango-51 as their standard sniper rifle. One of these is the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB). They average about 200 call outs per year, and are one of the premier "Tactical" teams in the world. The SEB chose the Tango-51 because of its accuracy and ergonomics.
I was able to shoot a tango-51 . The tango-51 perform flawlessly, and was deadly accurate. If I did my part, it did also. The action is very smooth, and there was not the very stiff closing of the bolt normally found with rifles with tight action tolerences. The large bolt handle is very comfortable, and I wish they were on more rifles. (Tac-Ops will do it to a standard remington bolt if requested). Overall, the finish was stellar, the attention to detail on these rifles is amazing. Nothing is overlooked with these rifles.
Am I impressed with these weapons? Yah, thats probably.....100%. In fact, I am impressed enough with the Tango-51 that I have decided to buy one.
