Chinese snipers placed first in four of the five events at the 10th Military and Police Sniper World Cup in Budapest. Chinese sniper Xu Bo placed first overall, Qing Feng, also Chinese, came in second with Martin Kunz, of Austria, coming in at third. Nineteen countries had team participating, including Austria, Belarus, Britain, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, USA, Ukraine and Vietnam.
Last year China used Remington rifles for the competition and placed third. It is not clear if this year they were using domestic rifles or imported target rifles. None of the rifles above resemble the JS 7.62, China’s medium range sniper rifle chambered in 7.62x54R.
