POTD: Latvian Snipers with the Heckler & Koch HK417

    POTD: Latvian Snipers with the Heckler & Koch HK417

    I showed the pictures in today’s Photo Of The Day to a friend and he called them “adult entertainment“, except in other words that we must not publish here. He wasn’t wrong, the album “Taktiskais snaiperis” (Tactical Snipers) contains a lot of hot material to get excited about. We have bolt-action and semi-automatic sniper rifles in a wonderful combination. There are firearms from a lot of countries here. You can see the Heckler & Koch HK417 used by the Latvian snipers, which is similar to the German G28. Can you spot the Italian ARX200 Assault Rifle? Take a look and do your best to identify what they’re using.

    From August 13 to 15, the annual competition “Tactical Sniper” of the Latvian Armed Forces took place at Ādaži training ground, the aim of which is to improve shooting skills, share experience and strengthen cooperation between Latvian and Allied soldiers.

    Did you ever experience a riflescope made by Schmidt & Bender?

    These electronic target systems are great as they give instant feedback.
