Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Good bit of kit by most accounts. Why not have a go given the opportunity?

    Anyway, we don't have a 7.62 semi-auto Marksman's rifle.
  2. Yes, although it fires a much heavier round. It's in 7.62x54R which is very much like 303 in most respects. It is a much heavier bullet than 7.62 NATO L2A2, 180 grains compared with 144.

    It's certainly not just a long barrelled AK as it is often dismissed for being.
  3. For sure that is what it most likely is , I just thought it was an interesting Pic , perhaps my title and post content (in jest) have not come across quite as I mean`t.
