In 2005/06 Steyr sold 800 Steyr AM-50 .50 BMG rifles to Iran. This is the first time I have seen footage of the Iranians actually using them.
There was controversy that these rifles had made their way into the hands of Iraqi insurgents, but these rumors were never substantiated and no evidence supporting it has surfaced in the past five years since the allegations.
