Chris Kyle and his friend ,Chad Littlefield are dead because of a man called Eddie Ray Ruoth .

Authorities said 38-year-old Chris Kyle, a former top Navy SEAL sniper and author of the best-selling book “American Sniper,” was shot to death with his friend at a Texas shooting range on Feb. 2, 2013.

Kyle, 38, and Littlefield, 35, had taken Routh to the range to try to help him work through his PTSD. Littlefield was Kyle’s neighbor and “workout buddy,” .

It is unclear what Routh’s motive was for the murders. Police say he was unemployed and “may have been suffering from some type of mental illness from being in the military.

Kyle had 160 confirmed combat kills from a distance of up to 2,100 yards. He holds the record for a U.S. military sniper, previously set at 93 by Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock during the Vietnam war.

With sorrow and regret , Gun-Zilla! would like to extend extreme condolences to the families of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield .

Tracking Point and thier Precision Guided Firearm .

The story of TrackingPoint began in early 2009 when founder John McHale went on an African safari. He personally saw the challenge of moderate- to long-distance hunting while taking several challenging shots in Tanzania. One particularly difficult shot was a 350-yard attempt to hit a Thompson’s Gazelle, He had a chance at a shot, but it had just not been possible to factor in the range, ballistics, stability, and other factors in the time available to convert the information into a hit . With a strong background in technology McHale approached an engineering firm with the idea of making a prototype Precision Guided Firearm (PGF). The mission was to develop small arms tracking and fire control technology capable of making a 450-yard shot and hitting a target the size of a volleyball.

Engineer John Lupher led a prototype project, successfully building a tracking riflescope and demonstrating the power of the concept. In July 2010, the technology was advanced to the point of making reliable, sub-minute-of-angle shots at 1,000 yards. McHale was confident that the project would create a product that would revolutionize the shooting sports market.

In February 2011, McHale created TrackingPoint, an applied technology firm, to make the world’s first Precision Guided Firearms. John Lupher joined as the company’s chief technology officer (CTO).

The biggest cannon in the line-up is chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum and is fully capable of head-shots at 1,200 yards .

Be Afraid , Be Very Very Afraid .

This rifle was made to be idiot proof which means that any idiot or criminal organization or terrorist can instantly become a world class marksman/assassin , just think of it … a rifle that Darth Vader would have been proud of coupled with some crazy extremist behind the trigger .

Keep in mind that this is the Fred Flintstone version ! , what will this become in five years ? ten years ? . Couple this with some of the robotic breakthroughs and you have robot assassins , or worse … imagine Star Wars , Terminator and I robot all rolled into one happy little package .

This is the ultimate E.B.R. ( Evil Black Rifle ) and i am sure that the anti-gun freaks will scream at the top of thier lungs when they see it. The only safety feature is the price tag , a whopping $22,500.00 .

I may only be a simple monster with a shotgun but even i know that just because you can make it does not always mean that you should .

Opinions from the desk of Gun-Zilla!

More rape in India .

Rape anywhere should be a castrating offence period . Or considering how cheap rope is lets have some good old fashioned hangings !!! .

EXECUTION-IRAN3 or perhaps a firing squad NA 1944 French-collaborator-executed too harsh ?, too bad !! these sick individuals should be put to death without fail . No more mercy should be shown to them than they showed their victims . We have to do something so harsh so violent and graphic , that normal people would puke on their own shoes if they had to watch . Punishments made public and gruesome so the whole world

would think twice before comitting any crime .castration3

I may only be a simple monster with a shotgun but it seems to me that its high time to put away the kid gloves and start dealing with rapists harshly and with finality .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

dragunov 1

 

a semi-automatic sniper rifle/designated marksman rifle chambered in 7.62×54mmR and developed in the Soviet Union.
The Dragunov was designed as a squad support weapon, since according to Soviet and Soviet-derived military doctrines the long-range engagement ability was lost to ordinary troops when submachine guns and assault rifles (which are optimized for close-range and medium-range, rapid-fire combat) were adopted. For that reason it was originally named Dragunov’s Semi-automatic Rifle.

It was selected as the winner of a contest that included three competing designs – by Sergei Simonov, by Aleksandr Konstantinov and by Yevgeny Dragunov. Extensive field testing of the rifles conducted in a wide range of environmental conditions resulted in Dragunov’s proposal being accepted into service in 1963. An initial pre-production batch consisting of 200 rifles was assembled for evaluation purposes, and from 1964 serial production was carried out by Izhmash.

Since then, the Dragunov has become the standard squad support weapon of several countries, including those of the former Warsaw Pact. Licensed production of the rifle was established in China (Type 79 and Type 85) and Iran (as a direct copy of the Chinese Type 79).

The Dragunov is an original rifle design for several reasons. First, it was not meant for highly trained and specialized sniper teams, but rather for designated marksmen, spread in every basic infantry unit. In every platoon of Warsaw Pact troops, there was at least one Dragunov rifle marksman. In the German Democratic Republic arsenals alone, there were almost 2,000 Dragunov rifles, while in many Western armies there was not even a single sniper rifle except in special forces units (as example, in the Italian Army until the 1990s), but in Warsaw Pact troop formations, the Dragunov marksmen were widespread among the regular units. To fulfill this role the rifle is relatively light for a sniper rifle but well balanced, making it easier to use in a dynamic battle. It also is a semi-automatic rifle, a rare feature for accuracy oriented rifles in the 1960s (except for customized ordnance, like M1 Garands), to allow rapid fire and quicker engagement of multiple targets. In order to fire effective API ammunition, its accuracy potential was slightly downgraded by shortening the twist rate, another uncommon priority for a pure sniper rifle. Its precision is good but not exceptional, also because it has a relatively light barrel profile. Like an assault rifle, the rifle has mounts on the barrel to fix a bayonet. The standard AKM bayonet can even be used to cut barbed wire. Lastly, the rifle was meant to be a relatively cheap mass produced firearm.

These features and unusual characteristics were driven by the tactical use doctrine of Dragunov armed marksman which was; from (just behind) the first line targeting high value targets of opportunity and providing special long-distance disrupting and suppressive fire on the battlefield, even with sudden close encounters with enemy troops in mind. A relatively small number of marksmen could assist conventional troops by combating or harassing valuable targets and assets such as: enemy key personnel like officers, non-commissioned officers and radio operators, exposed tank commanders, designated marksmen and snipers, machinegun teams, anti-tank warfare teams, etc.

SAVAGE 110 BA

savage 110 ba

The Savage 110 BA is a bolt-action sniper/tactical rifle manufactured by the Savage Arms Company. The rifle is designated with an “LE” code; “Law Enforcement”. All 110 BA series rifles are configured with AccuTrigger, matte-blued barreled action, fluted heavy free-floating, muzzle brake, oversized bolt handle, external box magazine (holding 5 – 6 rounds), magpul adjustable stock, adjustable pistol grip, and three swivel studs for sling and bipod mounting.

GRIPS / STOCK

The 110 BA comes with a Magpul Industries PRS-G3 stock. The stock is considered a precision Rifle/Sniper stock. The stock includes an adjustable length of pull and an adjustable cheek rest for customization to the operator’s requirements. The adjustments are achieved via rotating dials that incrementally move the butt plate and cheek rest respectively back and forth or up and down. The stock features a rubber recoil pad with an aluminum core for reduced fatigue and stainless steel adjustment shafts for corrosion resistance. Molded from nylon reinforced polymer. The stock includes an adapter for sling mounting.
The 110 BA also comes stock with a Heckler & Koch PSG1 style pistol grip. The grip is a target-type grip which contains an adjustable palm shelf. A hex bolt rather than a rotating dial tightens or loosens the palm shelf. Loosening the bolt allows for the palm rest to move up and down to accommodate the shooters hand size. Tightening the bolt locks the rest into a set position that is now customized to the shooters hand size.

Sights

The Savage 110 BA rifle is provided with pre-drilled holes for attachment of a Picatinny rail system; which the rifle comes with. The picatinny rail allows for a variety of add-ons. The rail is long enough to mount a scope towards the receiver end and can accommodate such devices as night vision in “front” of the scope. The rail system also has two side mounts for additional devices such as flashlights or laser sighting.

Free-floating

A free-floating barrel means that the barrel does not touch the stock that is connected to it except at the very end near the receiver and bolt end; where it is attached. The advantage to this design is that there is less vibration resonance. This means that as bullets are fired down the barrel their energy is usually channeled down the edges of the barrel. If the barrel were touching the stock throughout its entire length the energy traveling down the barrel would be transferred to the stock. This transference of energy to the stock would thus cause resonance which results in prolongation of vibrations by reflection. The effect of this is that the entire rifle tends to vibrate which causes inaccuracy as accuracy is a product of stability and not movement. A barrel that is free-floating thus eliminates these problems.

Muzzle Brake

The 110 BA comes with a 3.5″ inch Muzzle brake that is threaded to an industry standard 5/8×24 (5/8-24 UNEF-3A) thread pitch. Savage felt that a muzzle brake was essential in the rifle design as the .338 Lapua Magnum round generates recoil that most shooters find unpleasant. The muzzle brakes bottom gills were filled forcing the expanding gases to channel up and out. This feature would eliminate any “dust cloud” when firing from a prone position which would normally give away a shooters position in a tactical situation. By channeling the expanding gases upward and backward muzzle flip and recoil is reduced by what Savage claims is 35 percent. Project designer Steve Danneker claims the 110 BA has recoil comparable and similar to that of the .308 Winchester round.

The rifling rate of twist is:
1 in 9″ for all 110 BA .338 models
1 in 10″ for all 110 BA .300 models

Magazine

Savage utilized the Accuracy International detachable five-round, single stack box magazine for the 110 BA.
An important note on the 110 BA magazine is that it adheres to the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges loaded to the C.I.P. (Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’Epreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives) maximum allowed overall length of 93.50 mm (3.681 in). It actually accepts up to a 3.760-inch overall length round, though most factory ammunition doesn’t exceed 3.600 inches. This is an important distinction because some rifles chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum such as the Accuracy International AWM does not adhere to CIP standard and thus does not function properly due to a lack of internal magazine length. The reason for this problem is that the AWSM bolt-action is not specifically designed for the fat and long .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge. Because of this, ammunition manufacturers produce .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges that are loaded short enough (˜ 91.44 mm / 3.600 in) to fit in the AWSM magazines. As long as .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges that will fit in the magazines are used, the AWSM rifles can be used as repeating rifles instead of single shot rifles.

FEATURES :

Adjustable Trigger
Adjustable butt plate
Adjustable cheek pad
Target-type pistol grip with adjustable palm shelf
Adjustable rail for bipod
Muzzle Brake for less recoil
Heavy fluted barrel for accuracy and increased heat dissipation
Free-floating barrel for accuracy

This rifle is considered a long range sniper rifle. This rifle shoots a sub-MOA out of the box using heavy match ammunition. The tolerances of this rifle are such that the receiver and bolt are specifically manufactured for each other. Both have the same serial numbers etched on them in order to match each other correctly . The bolt is NOT interchangeable with other rifles even within the same model. This information is printed on a plastic warning label that protects the disassembled bolt which is part of the shipping box from Savage.

Trigger

The 110 BA comes with the Savage Arms developed “AccuTrigger”. This trigger is intended to give a shooter the flexibility to set trigger pull to individual preference without having to pay a gunsmith to adjust it. The trigger can be adjusted from 6.5 to 26 N (1.5 to 6 lbf). The AccuTrigger is completely safe and cannot accidentally discharge during normal use from being jarred or dropped when maintained and adjusted as intended.

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.

FEATURES :
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.
