I don't recall the name or spec's, but I do recall that isan anti-tank rifle, second world war era.
Thanks. I don't recall seeing one with such a long barrel though.
If I were to venture a guess, I would say some sort of crude Eastern Block 50BMG -55six
Thanks and I'll keep looking.
I think I found it. If it is this: 14.5mm PTRS-41 anti-tank rifle.The claim is that Vasily Zaytsev had the idea tomount a scope and use it as a sniper platform.By the way, long overdue on my part, due to beingforgetful and busy with schooling(science & healthcare).The other game fell through, as the other team decidedto ignore the invite.http://www.guns.com/2012/08/09/top-10-improvised-weapons/ (ranked at #5 on this page). There is also a short-video of it being fired in the prone.
That's neat. Thanks.
Brock That is an Simonov PTRS-41 AT rifle. It is the ancestor of the SKS 1945--Ray
Thanks and I'll check out the SKS 1945.
I believe it is going to be a PRRS-41. Russian WWII antitank rifle.
I guess y'all are referring to the same piece. Thanks.
I believe the Russian navy used those. Could double as an oar.C.J.
:) Evidently it was successful.
Seems like it is shown in the previous post" improvised weapons." the one Im referring to has an east bloc type flash suppressor on it.
