Makeshift .50 BMG ISIS Sniper Rifle

    East Asia and the Middle East are full of garage gunsmiths and homemade firearms. With the current conflict in Syria and Iraq it seems like lots of homemade guns are being found on the battlefield. Some of them seem decently well made, and some just seem odd. The one below seems outright dangerous, to the shooter. Gun Youtubber MrGunsnGear recently posted on his Facebook page this gem that was found by Peshmerga forces fighting ISIS near Mosul.

    I know some of you who follow me on Instagram know but for those that don’t —- my friend, and US Army veteran, Jake ( @roguecomcam on Instagram) is over with the Peshmarga currently taking the fight to ISIS near Mosul. They captured this makeshift .50 BMG “sniper” rifle from ISIS a few days ago. I figured you guys would appreciate the photos!



    Do they make a blast diverter for that muzzle brake? You know, to help protect shooters to the side and stuff.




    Cool carry handle.


    Dang, what scope rings are those?! I should get some for my rifle, I wonder how well they hold zero.


    “Damn bro, these adjustment knobs click real nice!”


    The new ISIS50 flat trigger from ALG Defense coming soon, look out for more info at the 2017 SHOT Show!
