Couldn't think of a good place to put this
The Barrett XM-109 Sniper Rifle
I WANT 2!
I want one too. There's a tank in front of my house I need to get rid of.
I'm a collector
The XM-109 will make a great deer rifle! I wonder if it fits the description of an assault weapon?
33 lbs and low velocity?
lightweight and high velocity please.
Not at 33 pounds.
Glad you asked.....
semiautomatic rifles which accept a detachable magazine are classified as "assault weapons" if they have two of the five following features: folding stock, pistol grip, bayonet mount, grenade launcher, threaded barrel for flash suppressor.
But you can have the very same weapon without any of the above and it's okay...Boy the Ban that expired was a bunch of feel good..
It's a matter of physics. How much kinetic energy is delivered by the round at the point of impact. The heavy weight of the piece lends stability to the firing platform, something of great importance in a sniper weapon.
Lightwieght and high velocity has its place though,
This was in jest, folks. I doubt seriously that any critter shot with this thing would have much left to it, As for the assault weapon part, as I said before, any weapon used to assault another person is an assault weapon....
How about verbal assault???
