POTD: M40A6 in MARSOF Advanced Sniper Course

Our Photo of The Day shows a Marine Raider with an M40A6 bolt-action sniper rifle and Nightforce scope. I’m not sure if the photographer played with the levels or some other filters as the images look a bit artificial, but who are we to complain? The M40A6 was used by these Marines as they attended the MARSOF Advanced […] Read More … The post POTD: M40A6 in MARSOF Advanced Sniper Course appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

POTD: Italian Sniper with Beretta ARX 200 Designated Marksman Rifle

Photo Of The Day: If the picture above was of an FN SCAR, the fan groups would be all over it.

POTD: NATO Maritime Sniper Course

Photo Of The Day: Most of the “sniping” I do is done when it’s cold, in the dusk and on land for some reason.

Below we have a Dutch Marine Sniper, as he re-chambers a round […] Read More … The post POTD: NATO Maritime Sniper Course appeared first on The Firearm Blog.
