POTD: Heckler & Koch G28 DMR with Terrapin X LRF

    Heckler & Koch G28 DMR with Terrapin X LRF

    Photo Of The Day: Above you see a Heckler & Koch G28 DMR used by the sniper team from the German Bundeswehr. Note the Terrapin X Laser Range Finder, made by Safran, mounted on top of the Schmidt & Bender rifle scope. What do you think about placing an LRF in this position?

    These images are from the European Best Sniper Team Competition, hosted by the Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) at the 7th Army Training Command’s Hohenfels Training Area, Germany.  The area is 163 km² and has 1,345 buildings for training, 319 kilometers of road, numerous cross-country trails, and one short take-off/landing airfield. JMRC is the only Army Combat Training Center outside the continental U.S.

    All we’re missing are the suppressor I think. G22A2 Sniper Rifle to the left.

    An overview of the H&K G28 can be found on H&K’s website here.

    For more information about the LRF, check out TFB’s review of Safran Vectronix Terrapin X Laser Rangefinder or the Terrapin X – Laser Range Finder Performance test.
