Sniper Rifle

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. Anybody know anything about the New Sniper Rifle
  2. Several options here, do you mean the new .60 anti-material rifle?
  3. The L96 has a new Gucci ( OK, Schmidt und Bender ) variable sight with stadiametric rangefinder. It looks ( and is ) substantially different from the old 7x42 sight, more akin to the sight that the USMC use - and they are expert snipers.

    The AW ( Artic Warfare ) variant is a development of the otiginal L96: one key improvment is that it can fire rounds more rapidly ( Not RAPID FIRE ) without the bolt becoming stiff.

    The L115 is a heavier version firing 8.59mm, accurate to longer ranges and issued to selected units. I wonder who that could mean. :roll: I think that RE EOD teams use it to dispose of unexploded ordnance

    Cooool stuff.
