[SR-ARES-DSR1]
$950.00

The DSR-1 sniper rifle is built and engineered in Germany by DSR Precison and is part of the newest trend in bullpup bolt action rifles. The bullpup design allows the weapon to use a longer barrel (meaning more accuracy to longer distances as well as increased effective range of the rifle), but is shorter than traditional bolt actions rifles of the same barrel length becasue the action is in the back, towards the shooter's shoulder. This shorter length allows a unit sniper to blend in with the rest of his teammates without broadcasting to the enemy that he is a sniper and also allows for easier concealment and carry. The DSR-1's stock features an adjustable monopod for use in steadying long range shots as well as two built in bipod legs that fold upwards into the top portion of the foregrip. A magazine holder towards the front of the weapon also houses a spare magazine for quick reloads. (Only the rear magazine actually feeds the rifle.) The DSR-1 comes in the prominent sniper calibers 7.62X51 NATO, .300 WinMag, and .338 Lapua, which is being examined by many police and military units today. The DSR-1 is a rifle specifically built for sniper operations and is not a military conversion of a civilian rifle like the M40 used by the Marine Corps. The DSR-1 is currently being fielded by units like Germany's GSG-9.
