The Republic of Austria is a small country, with only about 8.7 million inhabitants, situated in the middle of Europe. The flag of Austria has three equal horizontal bands of red, white and red. The Flag of Georgia (USA) is very similar.
The receiver set is made by Cross Machine Tools (CMT), and the rifle was presented at the IWA exhibition in Germany.
The handguard is a Switch Rail made by Fortis MFG.
There are no details of the barrel other than it’s from Rainier Arms. Some carbon fiber seems to be involved, judging from the pictures.
Note the barrel below. Surely looks like carbon fiber.
Below: Push safety by Elftmann Tactical. The trigger is made by them too, and you should try one if you get the chance.
The sight is a Trijicon SRS (Sealed Reflex Sight) with an illuminated 1.75 MOA red dot. It’s powered by a solar cell and assisted by a single AA battery. I don’t see this sight on rifles too often, so I wonder how successful it’s been?
Solar panels and carbon fiber on a rifle? Who could have imagined 10-20 years ago?
The body is made out of 7075 Aluminum with hardcoat black anodizing.
Front and back straps are made out of polymer composite, and available in various sizes and designs.
Below: This is where it all ends, the recoil too hopefully.
A pretty strange looking compensator made by VG6 Precision. Look for the Epsilon with Cage if you’re interested.
