Precision Rifles for
and Internal Security
The AW50 rifle is based on the same design and ergonomic
principles as the other rifles in the AW family and built to
function reliably with all of the various types of .50 BMG
ammunition. Its features render the cartridge more manageable
while still maintaining maximum precision and strength.
These include a built-in anti-recoil system, an adjustable
third supporting leg to help with precise aiming, a folding
stock for slightly compacted carry and an overall weight
(excluding ammunition) of 15 Kg (33 lbs). An optional
suppressor, which effectively reduces the rifle's report,
muzzle flash, smoke and ground dust disturbance, only
increases the overall length by 381 mm (15").
Typical sighting systems include a fixed 10x, a variable 3-12x or a variable 4-16x, each with .1 mil rad. or 1/2 MOA clicks, laser protection and a mil dot range finding reticle. These are secured by a one piece mount to a Picitinny-type rail. Iron sights are also fitted for emergency use.
The AW50 is supplied in a metal case that accomodates spare magazines, carrying handle, sling, cleaning and tool kits.
A padded soft case is available which will hold the rifle (folded) and all essentials. It can be carried by a sling harness on the shooter's back or attached to steel loops for parachute drops.
