Large-caliber sniper rifle "Exhaust" was established in 2002. The development was carried out under the state order of the security service of the Russian Federation.
Three years later, the sniper rifle "Exhaust" was first demonstrated to all arms lovers at one of the Moscow exhibitions. It is known that a complex of this type of combat ammunition was created only for the arming of special troops of the Russian FSB. The number of copies of the rifle is quite small. All the performance characteristics were provided by the manufacturer and were detailed at the Interpolitex exhibition.
Rifle "Exhaust" is capable of hitting the enemy within a radius of 600 meters. Silent and flameless fire management allows you to fight in any conditions. The deadly power of the bullet released can destroy defensive targets and penetrate non-armored vehicles. The use of cartridges with a high initial speed in combination with a specially designed muffler well "extinguishes" the sound of the shot produced. The shooting from the weapon is made by bullets of the twelfth caliber. Weighted weight cartridges weighing up to 76 g significantly increases the lethal force of the rifle.
Three types of cartridges are used to use the weapon: two of them give the bullet increased accuracy and one increases the penetration ability. The variety and quality of ammunition characterizes it as a model capable of standing at the same level as Western counterparts.
The "Exhaust" rifle is equipped with a manual override mechanism. The shutter easily charges weapons and locks up from the turn of the larva. A single-row box-shaped shop is capable of holding five cartridges. Sights are attached to the top of the receiver, the optical sight allows you to fire with great accuracy at a great distance. In addition, the weapon is equipped with a front sight and the whole.
The integrated silencer, perhaps, is one of the main advantages of the weapons developers. The part can be removed easily, this makes it possible to disassemble and clean the rifle in a short time. Transportation is only disassembled.
The shooting in the supine position is performed using a biped bipod. Rifle "Exhaust" though refers to large-caliber weapons, but the return in the process of the shot is not very noticeable. A convenient recharge lever minimizes the time spent preparing the next shot.
Designers developed weapons capable of using large-caliber ammunition as ammunition, but the main goal was different: to significantly reduce the weight of the rifle compared to existing ones. The total weight of the weapon was only 7 kg, taking into account the fact that the muffler itself weighs about two. With this weight, the "Exhaust" rifle has a length of 795 millimeters.
The issue of mass production of weapons remained open. The sniper rifle, created by special order of the security service of Russia, fully met the expected expectations, proving its effectiveness in combat use.
