Russia will showcase a new 12.7mm quiet sniper rifle derived from the MTs-116M gun for the first time at the Army-2018 arms exhibition in August.
The company will showcase a whole range of MTs-116M rifle modifications at the Army-2018 arms show, including 7.62x51mm (.308 Winchester), 7.62x67mm (.300 Winchester Magnum) and 8.6x70mm (.338 Lapua Magnum) guns, a representative of the Shipunov Instrument-Making Design Bureau told TASS on Monday.
The MTs-116M baseline magazine-type sniper rifle is chambered for the standard 7.62x54mm domestic cartridge and is designed for police and anti-terror operations. It has an effective range of 700-800m.
The new rifle has more powerful cartridges (with the greater powder charge due to the cartridge’s larger size) provide for better trajectory flatness and more accurate shooting, the representative said. It has an effective range upto 300m.
"Considering the high-quality production of barrels, the bullet’s deviation is just 13mm per 100m. Besides, the design bureau will demonstrate rifle variants chambered for the 7.62mm subsonic ammunition and 12.7 noiseless cartridges," he said.
All the modifications have retained the stock of the MTs-116 rifle and use the standardized trigger and striking mechanism but have different barrels.
