You are correct, he sold that a few years ago. I talked him in to taking it out for a roadtest at the gunrange, he said fine. A $140 worth (300 rounds) of 8MM Mauser lasts just over 11 seconds with that thing. It was quite exhilirating to say the least!
This was the weapon on the hill with the radar site in Saving private Ryan.
