Picked this unique rifle up about 2 weeks ago from a retired Lt. Colonel. Up to that point I had only ever read about this weapon in Ian Hoggs book of Sniper Rifles. According to the distributor there are approximately 15 of these in 7.62x51 caliber here in the US. Other calibers are available but was told that France will not ship anymore 7.62x51 barrels into the US. Pretty neat system. Haven't shot it yet. Hopefully soon.

Mark,
I believe it is a Parker bipod.

Breath taking. I have only seen photos of French training ops and one deployed last year in Africa.

Thanks for posting. May I keep a copy?

Thank you.

I recall a ribbon like heat shield that diverted heat from rising into the focal view of the scope.

Per the factory specs, this rifle is suppose to shoot .5 MOA. The finned sleeve on the barrel actually rotates on a layer of oil and serves to reduce/eliminate heat distortion and dampen barrel harmonics.

It sure looks purposeful.
