GF's top 10 sniper rifles

So, the gun fairy is done with her summer vacation. She's back all sunburned and bug-bitten, but thinking about all those little creatures biting her made her want something to kill them with.

So, here's the gun fairy's top 10 choices for sniper rifles

What do you think?

BTW - GF had help with this poll. If you don't know what these rifles are, here's the source of the poll along with descriptions of the rifles.

I chose the M24 because it's the closest to a rifle I own and one I can operate. While it would be fun to shoot these other rifles, I'm not a good enough shooter to make these things work their magic.

I went with the Enfield, but there's hardly a wrong answer here, that's for sure.....

a howa 1500 and savage model 10 also make good choices for those that do not want to spend a mint and the savage would be the pick of those two.......

M21. 50 cals are an 'in place' weapon, not meant to be carried like an infantry weapon, and the M21 can fill other rolls that a bolt can't.

M24, or the closest thing I've got, a 700P.

Never even heard of most of these, but then I'm stuck in the WWII era or earlier when it comes to rifles. I'm partial to my 91/30 PU, the only sniper rifle I own.

I chose the SVD, I've had the pleasure of firing one several times. Nothing short of remarkable for what it is. I was not impressed with the Barrett...ok, I lie, it was so freaking awesome I almost Peed myself! Although, I would not want to hump it very far.

I do not see the need for a 50 sniper rifle except in a military setting so the sr25.

Since I already have an SR-25 (equivalent), I picked the AWM.. I figure if Chris Kyle can hit 2100 yds with 338 LM, it's good enough for me.

Shot the M107 a bunch. Too heavy for my preferences, and 338 is plenty effective.

This is the closest I'll get to my M24. For my fellow M24 lovers, the 700P is a fantastic poor man's version.
