Description:

This is an exceptional example of a state of the art current Precision Sniper Rifle rig as manufactured by Accuracy International in Portsmouth, UK. It is a complete turn-key sniper rifle set that includes the modular rifle receiver, bolt and chassis currently configured in the exceptional, long range 338 Lapua, that is fitted with Leupold Mark 4 4.5-10x50 Sniper scope mounted with a Barrett BORS ballistic computer. Accuracy International was originally founded by Malcolm Cooper MBE in 1978 that produced some of the best, and most advanced sniper rifles at that time. Their basic rifle system is the "AW" model termed the Artic Warfare rifle meaning they could be used anywhere throughout the world. They were so unique and innovative they were adopted by the British as the L96A1 and also by several other European countries that are still in use today. He developed a unique rifle chassis stock system that used an aluminum rail system that the rifle receiver was bolted to with two outer plastic stock halves, as well as a detachable box magazine system with a modular breech/barrel system. This newer version of Accuracy International rifles including the AX, AT (Accuracy Tactical), and AXMC (AX Multi-Calibre) and the current model the AX-PSR (Precision Sniper Rifle) which features a switch-barrel system that allow the user to change out multiple barrels with only the use of a 4mm hex wrench, allowing field barrel changes in under a minute. He continued to advance and develop his line of rifles to this current version that utilizes a complete aluminum chassis system with the KeySlot free-floating handguard with cutouts on all six sides, a plastic pistol grip area with an aluminum folding stock that is adjustable for length of pull and cheekpiece height. Many of his initial designs were so unique that to his credit they have been copied by numerous other companies. The right side of the receiver is roll marked "12 AX PSR 17392" followed by the British "Crown/GP" proof mark, with the left side marked "ACCURACY INTERNATIONAL ENGLAND U4393/AINA FREDERICKSBURG VA." This complete Precision Sniper Rifle system has the modular rifle receiver, the folding chassis stock and comes with two additional barrels with individual muzzle brakes, two complete bolt assemblies (7.62 NATO and .300WM), 9 magazines total ( 3 300 WM, 3 .338 Lapua, and 3 308). This complete system includes a Harris bipod, a FDE colored nylon rifle case and cleaning kit, instruction manual and the large storage/shipping container to house the rifle, the additional barrel, bolts and magazines.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 95% original FDE finish with a few minor handling marks and some dings on the .338 Lapua bolt handle. Mechanically excellent. All accessories are very fine to excellent condition with limited handling marks. Hard case is very fine with limited handling marks and some foam tearing behind the barrel slots. Scope is excellent with clear optics and a crisp reticle.
