THOR XM .408 and .50 BMG Nemesis

    THOR Global Defense Group have teamed up with EDM Arms to develop the THOR XM-Series, a take-down rifle chambered in the .408 Chey-Tac cartridge and based on the EDM Windrunner action. The .408 Cheyenne Tactical is a long range sniping cartridge that in terms of performance cuts the difference between the .338 Lapua Magnum and .50 BMG.

    The Nemesis features a very long top rail and is designed to be able to handle any combination of optics that an operator may wish to use. Two smaller rails are up front in the 3 and 9 o clock positions (handguard are installed on them in the above photo) and long rail is at the 6 o clock position.

    Presumably to aid in transportation, it will be available in a 15″ barrel! Ever heard of a .50 BMG Short Barreled Rifle? Me neither!

    Weight: 22 – 33 lbs
    Barrel: 15″ (!!!) – 33″
    Magazine: 5 round capacity

    Currently THOR predict that the MSRP will be around $11,000-$12,000.
