TASKO Corporation 127mm Sniper Rifle

TASKO Corporation 127mm Sniper Rifle Description The TASKO 127x107mm sniper rifle is more accurately termed an anti-matériel rifle as it fires the 127x107mm round and is claimed to be effective against vehicle-sized targets at up to 2000 Metres; the maximum anti-personnel range is given as 1200 Metres. The rifle is gas-operated and fires on single shot, semiautomatic only with a maximum firing rate of 10 to 15 Roungs per Minute. Ammunition is fed from a 5 or 10 round box magazine. An adjustable bipod is attached directly onto a lug at the forward end of the receiver. The heavy barrel is provided with a large multibaffle muzzle brake to reduce recoil. The top of the receiver has provision for an optical sight which can be varied to suit the user. It is also possible to mount a special night sight with an effective operational range of 600 Metres under night conditions. A carrying handle is provided. The original telescopic single-strut butt-stock has been replaced by a more conventional wooden item with a butt-plate and cheek rest that can be adjusted in length to suit the individual firer. It is probable that the single-strut butt-stock, that can also be folded to the side for transport, remains an option.
