Accuracy International is a specialist British firearms manufacturer based in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England and best known for producing the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare series of precision sniper rifles. The company was established in 1978 by British Olympic shooting gold medallist Malcolm Cooper, MBE (1947–2001), Sarah Cooper, Martin Kay, and the designers of the weapons, Dave Walls and Dave Caig. All were highly skilled international or national target shooters. Accuracy International’s high-accuracy sniper rifles are in use with many military units and police departments around the world.
The Accuracy International rifle system has gained success, due in part to the design considerations put into the overall rifle. The rifles are hand-built. The AWSM (Arctic Warfare Super Magnum) is among the top three record holders for longest confirmed sniper kills .
The inherent accuracy of the rifle is due to the action being bolted with four screws and permanently bonded with epoxy material to an aluminium receiver, to which all major rifle components are in turn attached. As it keeps the action from moving away from zero, the accuracy of the rifle is very high.
The rifle stock design is designed for good ergonomics. The comfort in holding the rifle and the reduced recoil aids accuracy.
The barrel is interchangeable with other calibres; this can be done in the field in about 15 minutes. With the barrel clamped in a barrel vise, the barrel is removed from the action, and another one screwed into the action and tightened in place with a torque wrench.
This sniper rifle can be used for both H.A.L.O insertions and walking deployments of sniper teams .
I may only be a simple monster with a shotgun but i can tell you this , the AWSM is among the finest rifles on this planet and has earned the respect of countless snipers around the world .
Opinion’s from the desk of
Gun-Zilla ! .
OK i knew the title itself would get some attention and most likely a lot of you are at this very moment trying to remember where the gasoline and matches are kept so that you can burn me at the stake as a Heretic ! . However , before you go to all the trouble of obtaining a burning permit and haveing to find a decent stake to tie me to, let me explain myself .
First of all i have to make one thing perfectly clear ; I have nothing against GOD or his son JESUS . The thing that i do have a problem with are all you phony S.O.Bs that call yourselves Christians and yet fall short of the definition itself .
All of you who go through the week sinning and showing absolutely no compassion or consideration for your fellow man only to show up at Church on Sunday to be forgiven for all the shitty things you did during the week !!!. What a bunch of assholes you are , and the real funny thing is you ask some bald fat guy in a fancy robe to do the forgiving , the same bald fat guy who sits at home during the week watching kiddie porn , buggering little choir-boys and setting kittens on fire ! .
Can you hear all the angry buzzing ? …. that is the sound of the hornets nest that i just kicked the #$%& out of .
Hey , the buzzing is a good thing it gets peoples attention, it opens the eyes, it wakes us up !! and believe me far too many of you are asleep at the wheel so take off the damn blindfolds. Having said all that there is something else that i want to make very clear to you; I have met real Christians ,people who practice what they preach, people who are actually following the doctrines of the Bible every day of the week not just on a Sunday ! . To all the real Christians , this article is not meant for you , because GOD knows who you are and has already set aside a place for you , although perhaps you should read on and help to weed out the phonys .
I have always been under the impression that a true Christian treats others the way that they would like to be treated . The differance between a real one and a phony one is this; A phony Christian will only lend a hand if someone is there to see it happen so that they look like a do-gooder . A real Christian will lend a hand because it is the right thing to do not because someone may or may not be watching .
So to all you phony self-righteous shit-heads out there, maybe you should try reading the Bible instead of hiding behind it !!!! .
opinions from the desk of Gun-Zilla !
If ever there was a good reason for an execution, then Sub-Lt Jeffrey Delisle has certainly provided us with a good example . This naval spy from Nova Scotia is the first person ever convicted under Canada’s post 9/11 anti-terrorism legislation . His activities have compromised the safety of Canadian Intelligence assets and the relationships with our closest allies .
While assigned to a top secret naval base in Halifax Delisle had access to several secret and top secret server’s and data-base’s, he would then put the data on a thumb-drive and pass the information along to his Russian handler ” Victor ” via e-mail .
He was arrested after the R.C.M.P. intercepted two top secret C.S.I.S. report’s that he tried to send to the Russian’s .
Jeffrey Delisle is a traitor to this country, an embarrasment to all Canadians and a disgrace to the Naval community .
I may only be a simple monster with a shot-gun , but even i know that the sooner this traitor is put to death the better for all of Canada ! .

For those of you who might find this usefull
Because from time to time we all forget .
Hi-Point semi-automatic pistols are polymer-framed and generally regarded as simple, inexpensive handguns .
Based on a blowback design, Hi-Point pistols do not have a breech-locking system like most handguns. Instead they have large, heavy slides that hold the breech closed through sheer mass .
While making the pistols heavy, this design also makes them mechanically simple and easy to maintain .
Most self-loading pistols can be field-stripped without the use of any tools. However, Hi-Point pistols require a punch or a small screwdriver to remove a pin in the receiver, in order to permit slide removal (and thus enable field-stripping).
Hi-Point carbines use a polymer stock, stamped sheet metal receiver cover, and a receiver and bolt cast from zamak-3. The barrel is steel and button rifled using a 1-10″ right hand twist.
Some people are wary of Hi-Points because of the use of zinc alloy (zamak-3) castings in much of their construction. However, parts made from zamak-3 in Hi-Point guns (receiver and bolt/slide) are low-stress components that do not require the strength of steel. Higher stress components in Hi-Points, like the barrel and other small parts, are made of steel.
Hi-Point firearms have manual thumb safeties and an integral drop safety that prevents firing in the event that the firearm is dropped. Until recently, all Hi-Point products except the 995 (9mm) carbine had a last-round lock open and magazine disconnect safety, preventing firing unless a magazine was in the gun. With the replacement of the original 9mm carbine with the new 995 TS model, all pistols and carbines now have these features.

The good old .45 Automatic is the gun of choice , again for American military personel . Apparently the 9mm was not getting the job done to the satisfaction of the soldiers who have to depend on them for survival .
After a review gave careful consideration to the fact that since the big fat .45 slug came into existance , its stopping power has been legendary so it seemed like a no – brainer to go with something that was tried and true .
I may only be a simple monster with a shot-gun , but it seems to me that if you get it right the first time you should just stick with it .
Well now what ?, we survived 2012 the world did not end and here we sit .
The big question is have we improved ? have we made any real changes that matter ? . A simple way to find out would be to look in any newspaper and start reading … i did that today and i can tell you with 100 % certainty that the answer is NO .
We still have a thirst for violence , we still take advantage of the poor and destitute , the rich still get richer and the poor still get poorer .
We continue to poison the planet with pollution , there is still war , pestilence and famine with no apparent end in sight .
All in all it seems to me that we have our work cut out for us , so instead of adding to the headlines lets see if we can change them !! .
Good luck to all of us … and God willing , when 2013 comes to an end we can look back and say we made a differance .
By now you are painfully aware of the 28 people who lost thier lives at the hands of a madman . 20 young children and 8 adults who are no longer with us because of one sick demented individual . You have by now read all the accounts in the papers or heard the differing opinions on television , the why and the how and the questions that will never be attached to a sane answer . Works of insanity coupled with the forces of evil will never make sense to those of us who are possesed of sanity and logic .
To all the friends and families of the victims , It saddens me greatly to admit that no matter how hard I try there is nothing I can say or do to assuage your grief or ease your pain .
All I can do as a rational and caring individual is to add my own tears to the river of sorrow and offer up a heart-felt prayer in hopes that the Almighty will ease your suffering .
The NTW-20 is a South African anti-materiel rifle or large-caliber sniper rifle, developed by Denel’s Mechem division in the 1990s. The weapon was designed by Tony Neophytou , and intended for deployment against a wide variety of targets, including parked aircraft, telecommunication masts, power lines, missile sites, radar installations, refineries, satellite dishes, gun emplacements, bunkers and personnel, using a range of specialized projectiles. As with other weapons of this type, it can also be used for counter sniping and ordnance disposal .
Development of the system began in August 1995 under the Aerotek name and a working prototype was ready for testing four and a half months later. This rapid progress was made possible by Neophytou’s extensive expertise in the field of recoil reduction systems, having worked on helicopter turrets in the past. In order to further reduce the amount of research and development, the project recycled the barrel, bolt and barrel extension of the existing Vektor GA1 automatic cannon The rifle was accepted into service with the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) in 1998.
Denel was also contracted to supply various weapon systems for the Indian Armed Forces, including Anti-material rifles and Self-propelled howitzers. However, following allegations that it had paid kickbacks to secure a deal for anti-material rifles, Denel was black-listed by the government. Subsequently, the Ordnance Factory Tiruchirapalli (OFT), in association with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), began developing an indigenous antimaterial rifle called Vidhwansak, which borrowed heavily from the Denel NTW-20. The development of Vidhwansak was completed in November 2005.
The NTW 20/14.5 is one of the few firearms in existence that allow the changing of the caliber without completely disassembling and reworking the weapon. Switching between the two calibers of the NTW (20mm and 14.5mm) requires changing the bolt, barrel, sighting gear and magazine. (A third variant, the NTW 20×110 has also been developed, but is not designed for barrel caliber switching.) Caliber switching the NTW 20/14.5 can be accomplished simply in the field without specialized tools. The magazine protrudes from the left side of the receiver. The NTW can be disassembled and packed into two backpacks for carriage. A muzzle brake is fitted on the end of the barrel which absorbs an estimated 50%-60% of recoil. This is further supplemented by a buffered slide in the receiver.
The Fusil Automatique Léger (“Light Automatic Rifle”) or FAL is a self-loading, selective fire battle rifle produced by the Belgian armaments manufacturer Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN). During the Cold War it was adopted by many North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries, with the notable exception of the United States. It is one of the most widely used rifles in history, having been used by over 90 countries. The FAL was predominantly chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO round, and because of its prevalence and widespread use among the armed forces of many NATO countries during the Cold War it was nicknamed “The right arm of the Free World”.
