Tec Target Schneider and their sales partner IEA Mil-Optics GmbH have presented a new modular sniper rifle system in a bullpup design. By the looks of it, there are a lot of interesting details, and we look forward to your input and comments as you have read this article.
The scope mount is for sure quite different, and the overall design gives me space-gun vibes.
There are multiple barrel lengths, handguards and calibers available, for instance, 6 x 47 Lapua, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, .300 Win Mag, and .338 Lapua Magnum.
Below is the Press Release, auto-translated from German:
TTS: New modular sniper rifle system in bullpup design
Dietingen / Nagold (ww): Tec Target Schneider – TTS for short – and its sales partner I-E-A Mil-Optics GmbH recently presented a new modular sniper rifle system in bullpup design at the GPEC.
There are several barrel lengths and calibers (currently 6 x 47 Lapua, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua Magnum) and forearms of different lengths available for the rifle. The weapon, which can be operated from both sides, can be individually adapted to the shooter.
This has a three-position lock (single shot, secure / lock chamber movable, secure / lock chamber locked), a match trigger, an earth spur and is suspended from the adjustable bipod under the center of gravity. Stainless steel barrels and surfaces are mostly DLC coated. The magazine capacity is five cartridges.
The modular design of the weapon enables the user to change the barrel in various calibres and barrel lengths in just a few minutes.
The advantage of the Bullpup system is obvious, especially in the area of precision shooters. Despite its barrel length, which is suitable for precision, the weapon retains compact dimensions. As a result, the precision shooter can transport them more inconspicuously and reach his position hidden. Furthermore, shooting from confined positions or vehicles is easier.
TTS managing director Hubert Schneider learned his tools in the former Mauser plants in Oberndorf. Until his (un) retirement in the Swabian cradle of German handgun technology, he worked in the development department of Rheinmetall Waffen und Munition GmbH.
The distribution partner of the innovative TTS weapon systems is IEA Mil-Optics GmbH from Nagold. Orders are now possible.
