Order for 300 rifles during second half of 2016


Truvelo Manufacturers, the Midrand-based producer of some of the finest high-precision long-range sniper rifles in the world, has announced it has successfully completed an order for 300 rifles during the second half of 2016.

The order, which was shipped in two consignments of 150 rifles each, was the single largest order in the company’s history.

“The Truvelo CMS series of sniper rifles have been increasing in popularity within various military and law enforcement circles worldwide since its inception. This is mainly due to the very unique design of the rifle, as well as the wide range of calibres available,” said Elardus de Lang, Truvelo Technical Support and International Sales Manager.

He added: “The 300 rifles chambered in 338 Lapua Magnum confirms the popularity of this calibre in the anti-personnel application. With regard to anti-materiel rifles, our rifles chambered in 20mm x 42mm are really turning heads due to its compact size, precision, as well as payload ability. For longer range engagements, the 14.5mm x 114mm as well as the 20mm x 110mm are also rapidly gaining the interest of specialised units.”

The 338 Lapua Magnum Truvelo CMS is famous for its flawless functioning as well exceptional accuracy. Customers have reported accuracy with match factory ammunition below half minute of angle, and this has also been confirmed numerous times by in-house testing at the factory’s test range using various rifles fresh off the production line.

As innovation is a key part of the Truvelo principles, constant improvements are implemented as well as further development, including new calibres that will be launched in the very near future.
