High quality semi automatic sniper rifle. Made by Harris Gunworks, this is another of the huge .50 caliber sniper/Anti Material rifles currently on the market.
The weapon is made of high quality steel and anodized aluminum, with a tough black teflon coating on all exposed parts. The adjustable gas system is hard chromed for increased life.
The barrel is heavy, free floating, and of match grade with a standard Muzzle Brake attached. The action is roughly based upon the AK-47 action, with modifications to make it suitable for a high powered rifle. Mounted on top of the reciever is a standard Weaver-type rail, for mounting scopes. Integrated in this rail are rudimentary iron sights.
The rifle was designed for military use, and has been tested under a variety of adverse weather conditions.
