    Look at this clip. Around the 5:20 mark. Looks like an M1 Carbine with an extended barrel.

    Are my eyes playing a trick on me?

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Well, by golly......my eyes were not deceiving me.

    But, if you look closely, the one in the video is slightly different. The last 6 inches or so of the barrel look thicker or at least somewhere around the 6 inch mark, there is some type of sleeve/coupling. It also has not welded on scope mount or scope.

    The video is not all that clear, could look the way it does for any number of reasons.

    yeah, video is not the best but it looks like an extension rather than a single barrel. Still, if it is the T3, what a rare piece it would be. And real combat video to boot!

    I think it has a grenade launcher attached? The last 1/3th section of the barrel seems a bit thicker than the rest.

    You are correct it seems. Here is a photo in post 7 of this link.

    Very interesting and a first for me.

    Thanks for the detective work.

    ??? The sniper version or the grenade launcher? I assume you mean the sniper version as I have a photo of the grenade launcher in the first post
