About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Jewish Marksman's Rifle

In response to several reader requests, I finally got around to taking a picture of my rifle (click the picture to enlarge).  It is a Remington 700 action inside an Eliseo RTS tube stock.  If you click on the picture and enlarge, you can see the features of the stock.  The fore-end of the stock has a rail, where currently my hand stop is mounted, and I remove that and replace it with a wood block for off-hand shooting.  The grip takes any AR-15 grip, I currently have a wood target grip I go used.  The stock takes Accuracy International .308 magazines, I use 5 round mags for competition.  You can see that the butt stock is angled and offset at the position that fits me, and weights attach to a post at the bottom of the butt stock.  The top of the stock houses the rail where my rear sight sits, and the front sight is mounted on the front of the barrel that was turned down for the mount.  Most importantly, the bolt rides under the cheek rest so I don't have to move my head in rapid firing stages.  

If you enlarge the second picture left, you might be able to make out the color scheme, which is the Miami Dolphins blue and orange on a black background.  The picture on the right is my rear sight.  

If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments.


  1. Greetings from RI!

    Is the front tube "scope" have any sort of optics in it?

    Very interesting build -


    1. Hello Andrew,

      Inside that front tube is simply an adjustable iris aperture. The tube is just to reduce glare...I've been meaning to get one for the rear sight as well. NRA Highpower rules do allow 1 lens, either in the front or rear sight, so shooters can use a lens for vision correction but not anything like a scope. I don't feel I need one just yet.
