A question for any gun enthusiasts with specific reference to sniper rifles…
A few years back I picked up a mixed assortment of ‘stowage boxes’ from a wargames manufacturer. Included was both an open and closed version of the transport case below. It’s a single moulded piece but I’m trying to identify whether rifle in the case is ‘real’ or more of a generic modern rifle? I’ve flooded the case with an oil wash to try and pick out the detail a bit better.
The scale is 28mm (nominally 1/50 in the case of this wargames producer - Spectre Miniatures).
I’ve done some research and I keep coming back to a Mk13 or a Mk21, but I’m not convinced - any better guesses out there?
I reckon its an M110 of some description.
looks like the M110 family … ??
The step down in the upper behind where the scope is mounted suggests that it’s a bolt action, even though the bolt handle doesn’t seem to be molded. Not a semi-auto M110. Agree it’s most likely a MK13.
Thanks everyone - you assistance is much appreciated!
Close, but there are still a lot of differences between the two. Stock is wrong shape, pistol grip and trigger guard are different, magazine receiver doesn’t have a step, etc.
I’d venture to guess it’s possibly an “artist’s rendition” based on a mental composite of features the sculptor had seen on a variety of weapons.
