    What's the heck is that ? : that's one of the first sniper rifle to be designed expressely for that job.
    Completely adjustable to your mophology : length of the stock, height of the butt's end ...
    Barrel change in 2 minutes with an hexwrench, without loosing the zero.
    And, of course, top accuracy ! something like .25 MOA...
    To be brief, a top performer!

    Weapon is the Accuracy International AWP in .338 Lapua Magnum and 7.62x51mm (designated L96). Closeup of the action and optics system. Of note is the use of cloth tape to camoflauge the rifles. The barrel is wrapped, but independently of the stock. The tape is then painted to match the environment. The light teal green color looks bright in the photographs, but in real life it matched the sagebrush in the desert very well.
