Unique Alpine TPG-1 Modular Multi-Caliber Sniper/Long-Range Interdiction Rifle
http://www.unique-alpine.com/seiten/tedaten.html Unique Alpine, of Austria, is making a rather interesting modular multi-caliber bolt-action sniper/long-range-interdiction rifle called the TPG-1. DefRev doesn't know much about it yet. Here's what we do know: the TPG-1 high-precision rifle utilizes a 3-lug bolt, which locks directly into the barrel extension. The TPG-1's receiver is manufactured from special high-grade aluminum alloy, and features a low-bore axis M1913 Picatinny rail. The full-length aluminum chassis incorporates molded forend panels for a more secure and comfortable hold. The TPG-1 tactical sniper/long-range interdiction rifle also incorporates a molded ergonomic pistol grip with finger grooves and hand rest, as well as a removable/adjustable length buttstock (adjustable butt plate) with adjustable cheek-piece. Available in calibers: 5.56x45mm (.223Rem), .243 Win, 7.62x51mm (.308Win), .300 Win Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum. Rounds are fed from a detachable box magazine. TPG-1's magazine capacity is 3-5 rounds, depending on caliber. Weight: 5,5 to 7 kg This rifle is developed by the old German distributor of Unique France. The TPG-1 uses the Payen system like on other PGM and Unique rifles.
