Moro Rebel Sniper Rifle

    A reader noticed this interesting sniper rifle in a photo of Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MNLF) fighters which appeared in his local newspaper. It is a quite a nifty looking rifle, if not a little bulky. Apparently they are fielding quite a few of them. I think they would be made locally.

    The Philippines has a long history of backyard gunsmiths, rivalling that of Pakistan’s backyard/cave gun industry. Local politicians in the Philippines are working on ways to legitimise the industry.
