[Longarms] Hybrid Gun: Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
This is a scoped Militarized version of a bolt-action rifle. These are usually precision weapons requiring rare skill and patience to use, but is powerful at extremely long ranges.
In military and law enforcement terminology, a sniper rifle is a precision-rifle used to ensure more accurate placement of bullets at longer ranges than other small arms. A typical sniper rifle is built for optimal levels of accuracy, fitted with a telescopic sight and chambered for a military centerfire cartridge. The term is often used in the media to describe any type of accurized firearm fitted with a telescopic sight that is employed against human targets, although “sniping rifle” or “sniper’s rifle” is the technically correct term for such a rifle. For a given cartridge, a bolt-action rifle is cheaper to build and maintain, more reliable, and lighter, due to fewer moving parts in the mechanism. In addition, the lack of an external magazine allows for more versatile fire-positioning, and the absence of uncontrolled automatic cartridge case ejection helped to avoid revealing the firer’s position.
