Range Report: The Iraqi Tabuk Sniper Rifle

Anybody who served in the Iraq War during the height of the insurgency (2005-2007) or are familiar with modern military sniper history know the story of the Iraqi Sniper Juba and his Tabuk Sniper Rifle.

I have to be honest, I was jaw-dropped impressed with the performace of both the shooter and this rifle with Ball ammo and a malfunctioning scope to 500 yards!

Outstanding read for all you fellow AK Disciples.

I found it interesting that the primary rifle favored for both sniping and general use is the SVD and PSL. This reiterates the ideal that inĀ  small guerilla groups the TERRAIN/OPERATING ENVIRONMENT generally dictates the types of weapons used.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
