There’s been a lot of interesting firearms being spotted in Syria during the recent conflict over there. From vintage WWII weapons, Bubba’d Mosin Nagants to a remote controlled Sturmgewehr 44. Here’s another interesting rifle, a homemade 23mm “sniper” rifle that they appear to be using to punch holes into enemy positions. At least they’re using hearing protection.

    This thing is more like a light artillery piece, and not a rifle.

      @AldanFerrox They certainly seem to be using it that way, cant say I blame them either, I would not want to fire that thing with my eye anywhere near the scope.
