    I was looking at HPG website and found a pictures of a guy wearing one of there items. He is using a scout rifle but i am unsure of what model of rifle it is or if it is homemade.

    I am still trying to find what it could be. It looks awesome and looks like it would be a great Survival/Truck/Hunting gun.

    M48 mouser sporterized sbr. If you are looking for a compact truck/scout gun check out the savage hog hunter

    It is a sporterized Mauser in a synthetic stock. It's chambered in .308 win. A piece of picatinny rail was bedded into the fore end of the stock for the light. The rear sight is an XS. A piece of the bridge on the rear ring of the receiver was milled away to let it fit. If I remember correctly, the scope bases are aluminum weaver style blocks fit to the barrel. Its been a few years since I handled that rifle. Unless something has changed since the last time I handled it, it is not an SBR...

    Not last time I saw it. I'm pretty sure it's just a 16"...
