The AWC G2 is a rare American bullpup sniper rifle.

HistoryEdit

The brainchild of Lynn McWilliams, owner of AWC Systems Technology, the G2 was meant as a weapon to help breathe new life into an old and venerable weapons system, the M14, and was later tested by various countries and governmental agencies for that very purpose. Some variants of the G2 were made, but all in all, very few G2s were produced for both individual sales and governmental use, amounting to about 100 rifles over all variants.

Design DetailsEdit

Heavily based on the M14, the G2 is a bullpup sniper rifle platform firing a high-power rifle cartridge. It is capable of 1 MOA accuracy, and had a number of variations, which primarily focused on barrel weights and suppressor attachments.

VariantsEdit

G2

Prototype variant.

G2A

Full-production variant. It came in four finishes; black, white, green and panzer gray.

G2A+

Updated version of the G2A used for testing at the Fort Bragg sniper school. It was equipped with a heavy stainless steel Krieger match barrel and McWilliams' final scope design fitted.

G2FA

Fully-automatic variant of the G2 which is still capable of 1 MOA accuracy. Only one was produced, finished in black.
