The sniper rifle showcased in the video below stands at 6-feet 8-inches tall and is certainly one of the biggest rifles ever made. Anzio Ironworks created the gun known as the 20x102mm Ultra Long Range Sniper System. Why? Because the creators wanted to increase the precision of firing from 2,000 yards to upwards of 3,500 yards (or about 2 miles).
When you see this gun in action, you might have a few complaints. But just watch at how the sniper can take down a target more than 2-miles away. With the way America and our allies are fighting ISIS in the Middle East, this kind of weapon would prove instrumental in taking out leaders, executioners, and others in high position from a distance far enough to minimize the risk to American lives…
When you see the sniper rifle, you might think that it is too big to be practical. What if enemy forces run up on the sniper? There would be no way to quickly transport the gun and would likely have to be abandoned.
So long as the sniper is surrounded by a team of support, the gunman should have the safety required to stay focused and take down targets from miles away.
In the video clip, the shooter lies on his stomach and prepares to fire the Ultra Long Range Sniper System at a distant target.
In the clip, you’ll watch the men from Tactical Life trying out the powerful weapon. The shells are enormous and anyone hit with one of these bullets would be taken out from any distance.
Here’s what the blog post on Tactical Life wrote about the development of this particular sniper rifle.
“Building on that success, Mike Remo of Anzio Ironworks wanted to move out the limit for precision fire from 2,000 yards to a full 3,000 yards (and maybe 3,500 yards). As a result, Mike developed the Mag-Fed 20x102mm magazine fed, bolt action Ultra Long Range Sniper System to accomplish that goal. Using modern computerized optics the Mag-Fed 20mm can be effectively used for anti-materiel and counter-sniping out to well beyond .50 BMG range. Why is that significant? Enemy combatants might have access to .50 BMG or similar sniper rifles, and only a 20mm weapon can outrange and dominate that kind of threat.”
The video of this firing test has been viewed almost 22 million times by gun fans around the world. That just goes to show you how popular the second amendment is with Americans.
Here’s what a few people shared in the YouTube comments:
“A few more shots and hes going to be out of frame lol punts him back a foot after each shot, i love it.”
“I want one for home defense.”
“i’d like to see what happened to the target”
“How was the felt recoil? It looks like that monstrosity of a cannon was pushing you back 4-6 inches with every shot.”
“this weapon comes straight out of an anime by the looks of it. i mean look how long it is. how do you even carry that thing?”
What do you think of this sniper rifle? Should the American military use it?
