What am I looking at?

Last weekend I was participating in a training for Range Officers for ISSF type 10, 25 and 50 meter shooting. One of the participants in the 10 Meter Rifle and 50 Meter Rifle was a retired Colonel from the national armed forces. His 50 Meter rifle intrigued me, never seen one like it and it was unique on the line as everyone else was shooting pretty much straight up factory rifles from Anschutz, Feinwerkbau, etc. I took a closer look when he was doing the pre-competition equipment check and I asked him about it. He says I'm the first one over the years to realize it's a built rifle instead of factory and all he could tell me was "It's a Marlin". Later he added that originally it was a tube fed repeater but he built it into a single shot precision machine. His results were pretty impressive for an iron sighted "sporting" rifle built into an ISSF legal singleshot.



Unfortunately I didn't get any picks of the full length of the rifle. It's fitted with competition type sights fore and aft as well as a stainless barrel, carbon fiber chassis and I've no clue as to the trigger. It must be nice to have contacts and money. :-D
