 Sniper Rifle MACS M3 cal. 12,7x99mm (.50)

The MACS Sniper Rifle Model M3 fires cal. 12.7×99 mm (0.50 Browning) cartridge. MACS Sniper Rifle is a single-shot, bolt-action rifle with an optical sight and a multi baffle muzzle brake to reduce recoil forces. Rounds are fed into the weapon by manually operated bolt one at the time (no magazine). The rifle operates in “bull pup” firearm configuration in which the action is located behind the trigger group and alongside the shooter's face, so there is no wasted space for the butt stock as in conventional designs. This permits a shorter firearm length for the same barrel length for improved maneuverability, and reduces weight.

The issued optical sight is alternated among: model Kahles ZF10×42 or Kahles model K- 312 3-12x50. Barrel is fitted with a trial-chamber muzzle brake whose outlets direct the muzzle blast sideways.

Nine locking lugs, rather than conventional two, provide 50% more bearing area for increased strength and structural integrity. Longitudinal flutes on the bolt reduce its weight and surface, and minimize binding to maintain smooth bolt operation. Three gas ports on the bolt allow high pressure gases to escape laterally for greater safety.
