ARMS-TECH 300 Winchester Magnum
FOLLOWING TEXT FROM: The manufacturer's company literature. - - - - - ARMS-TECH, Ltd. Magnum Super Match Interdiction rifle (.300 - Winchester Magnum) DEVELOPMENT The "Magnum Super-Match Interdiction" rifle was developed as a private venture by ARMS-TECH, Ltd. It was to fill a need for a precision rifle as accurate as a bolt-action rifle, able to reach targets beyond the range of standard .7'62x51mm-NATO weapons, and providing a quick follow-up shot capability, for tactical situations requiring the engagement of multiple targets. DESCRIPTION The "Magnum Super-Match Interdiction" rifle is based on an extensively modified FN HERSTAL BAR sporting rifle. Stainless steel barrels are by either Douglas or Schneider, are fully free floated for accuracy and are blackened by a chrome sulphide process. Barrels are cryogenically treated to enhance accuracy and extend service life. The barrels are threaded to accept a sound suppressor. In the absence of a suppressor, a cap is screwed onto the muzzle to prevent damage. Extraction has been improved for strength and reliability. For cold weather operations, the charging handle has been extended. Locking lug recesses, integral to the barrel in standard rifles, have been replaced by a proprietary carbon steel shank to improve reliability and strength. The bolt is lapped for smooth operation. The magazine release has been changed to one similar to a Kalashnikov type. Stocks are by McMillan (Harris Gun Works) and each action is custom-bedded using a powdered metal-filled epoxy compound. The rifle incorporates an ARMS-TECH proprietary telescope mounting system that allows optics to be removed and replaced without loss of zero. The "Magnum Super-Match Interdiction" rifle is warranted by the manufacturer to shoot with sub-minute of angle accuracy over its effective range.
