Norwegian VAPENSMIA NM149S

Norwegian VAPENSMIA NM149S

The NM149S bolt-action sniper rifle was developed in the year 1988 by the Norwegian arms firm of \"VÃ¥pensmia A/S\", in close cooperation with the Norwegian Army, based upon the Mauser 98G bolt-action. The stock is made out of laminated beech veneer, pillar bedded and are adjustable for length of pull via a spacer system, the barrel is German made cold-hammered barrel with 4 grooves right hand twist, of heavy contour and the system shoots very well. There was a problem with the early versions of the stock cracking, but that problem has since been solved. The system is very capable and effective and has been serving in the Norwegian army since its very introduction. The rifles were given the serial numbers of the standardly-issued Schmidt&Bender scopes, to make a matching pair. Very limited civiliansales were made, mostly in the homeland. An improved model, the NM149-F1, has recently been developed and is currently under production. It has a better and stronger laminated stock, an American-made 21mm barrel with a permanent front sight, and a flash suppressor from the AG-3 service rifle (Norwegian version of the German HECKLER&KOCH G-3 battle rifle). The stock is not pillar bedded, though, and thus is more susceptible to changes in weather. Match grade trigger, bipod and silencer can be fitted as needed. --TECHNICAL SPECS-- CALIBER: .7\'62x51mm-NATO (.308-Winchester) CAPACITY: 5-rounds, detachable box magazine OPERATION: Bolt-action, rotating bolt RATE OF FIRE: N/A OVERALL WEIGHT: 5,6 Kilograms, approx.
