I just got my marauder a couple days ago, and all I can say is wow!!! The quality is impecable. This thing is sturdy. I had my doubts about the universal gunbearer being sturdy, but its great especially since its a 12 lbs rifle. You can't even feel the ar-15. anyway here is some eyecandy, feel free to post some of your own.
Maybe this thread will help you guys waiting for your stuff to arive.

Thanks for the compliment Dave. I think this bag will probably last a lifetime. I don't see me needing another for a while. um, well unless I need another kifaru.

kgb1024,

Great photos..especially helpful being able to see the gunbearer setup..thanks! Although I have a somewhat similar setup with my Marauder and have been using it daily for a little while now, it still is a real thrill to see someone else's, inside and out, rigged up for different uses and in a different color. Based on Dave's comment, maybe we can compare pictures in another 9 years?

Is that an LTR? How does the pack ride with that strapped on, does it pull to that side?

Aimless, Yes, its an LTR and it rides pretty solid on the marauder. Once you get it all strapped in you feel it a little on that side when the pack is empty, not at all with my AR-15. If you counter weigh it with stuff in the pack, you can balance it pretty well. I am actually very happy with it.

Thanks for all the compliments on my dog, he's a six year old, red nose pitt bull.

Medic, We're probably neighbors.

nice! i wouldn't mind carrying the ar like that, but a precision rifle like that needs some sort of protection! /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Protection from what?

The only way something is going to happen to that rifle is if he falls or drops his pack. I doubt he's going to drop his pack with the rifle in it, so that pretty much leaves falling. So, if he's falling, would it be better to have the rifle in his hands where it's DEFINATELY going to hit the deck?

If you're referring to the rifle cases you can strap to your pack...those are nice for carrying and concealing (sorta) what you have, but if you think that the little bit of quilting they have in them will do anything for the rifle if you drop it, you're wasting your money.

I assumed he meant one of those doo hickeys that cover the scope and the end of the barrel. I used them sometimes carrying my 700 VSF, but I don't know that I would bother with it in that rig, unless he starts doing somersaults I'm not sure how he could hit the crown on anything.

Anyway, thanks for the response kgb1024 and for posting those pictures. I had been wondering whether I would be "listing to the right" with my Remington in one of those rigs.

This is what I have

Nut sak, you mean something like this?

I had a post a little while back about the T.A.B rifle cover. Well this is why I bought it. It has padding for the scope and the crown. Plus, its in multi-cam. The main reason I didn't have the cover on is so people could see the two different rifles. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

exactly. my primary concern would be with anything working its way into the barrel or screwing with those super expensive optics or fuging the zero.

a precision sniper rifle can easily run upwards of $2000. i would want every ounce of protection to secure that investment. not to mention any debrits(sp?) in the barrel could cause some serious damage to it if fired.

haha yeah that's right i remember that post. that really looks amazing, i must say! i'm waiting on an od tg1 with tan hardware and the marauder will be my next purchase. did you get a belt with that? so, what work do you do with that beautiful stick of yours?

oh yeah... nice mutt!

Yea, I got a belt (unpadded with pals and powerpull), but in the picture I wanted to see how stable the pack is without the belt. I am impressed with the stability without the belt. with the belt its no problem even with the heavy rifle.
As for the work I do with my stick, its purely for fun and enjoyment. I am getting ready to go to McMillian Sniper school the begining of April.

Hey kgb1024,

Cool pics. Awesome Wally World '1.77 pouches'!

You know, your dog has that same expression on his face that Mel gets when someone takes his picture...
