Truvelo does it again
The revamped 20mm x 110mm Hispano Sniper Rifle features three separate recoil reducing systems.
The Truvelo 20mm x 110mm Hispano anti-materiel rifle has been totally redesigned. The new version of the rifle now features the Truvelo signature four locking lug system found on the entire range of CMS rifles.
The 20mm x 110mm HSR (Hispano Sniper Rifle) features three separate recoil reducing systems, the first being the newly designed and purpose built, heavy duty muzzle brake. The second is the spring-loaded recoil dampers in the cradle mount, which attaches to a standard M3 tripod commonly used for the M2 .50 BMG heavy machine gun. The third and final system is the piston-based recoil reducer that is located in the stock of the rifle.
All of these recoil reducing systems combined has made it possible to reduce the overall weight of the rifle significantly, yet maintaining acceptable levels of recoil, thus not fatiguing the shooter during long shooting sessions. It is even possible to shoot this weapon system from the prone position by means of only a standard bipod, like a normal sniper rifle platform would be employed, thus negating the need to also carry the 20kg tripod.
In recent tests, first round cold bore hits were made on structures from a distance of beyond 1.1km. The AP-T (armour piercing tracer) ammunition proved lethal at penetrating armoured steel and also penetrated a building with ease.
Truvelo is currently in the process of producing 25 of these revolutionary rifles for a military customer abroad and it is confident several more will follow after demonstrating the abilities of the 20mm x 110mm round combined with the cutting-edge design of the Truvelo HSR.
