    Sniper Rifles of the World from Origin to Present Day

    Sniper Rifles are the lethal tools of a lethal trade, having evolved considerably from their rather modest beginnings.





    The sniper has been a common component to the battlefield since the rifle made its first appearance. The designs and capabilities of these weapon systems are similar and their abilities are further enhanced by the addition of specialized scopes, buttstock and bipod arrangements. However, the amount of training and experience separates the average sniper from the true marksman.


    The sniper rifle has been a mainstay of the army for over a hundred years now. The sniper itself has become the ultimate assassin capable of avoiding detection, making his way to within a few hundred yards of his target, dispatching said target and returning to his extraction point - all the while going days without contact, communications or a healthy dose of sleep and eats. Ultimately, it is the designated sniper's responsibility to remove a targeted threat in the form of a high ranking official, military officer or rogue enemy element from being an effective part of the modern battlefield. It gives precedence to the old adage of removing the "head" of the snake to cut off support to the rest of the enemy army.
