The McBros .950 rifle is a very powerful American bolt-action rifle.

HistoryEdit

The rifle was first produced in 2006. SSK Industries, the makers of the rifle, received a "Sporting Use Exception" to deregulate the rifles. This means that they can be bought and used by any American citizen that is at least 18 years of age, just like any Title I rifle. In spite of its weight (50 kilograms or 110 pounds), recoil is substantial, and as such is not supposed to be fired from the hip or from the shoulder due to its severe recoil and the possibility of injury just because of firing this weapon. Because of all these features, the rifle has little practical use, other than being a "range queen", which is a weapon brought to a firing range primarily for a fun time, and just for the sheer spectacle of it being fired.

Design DetailsEdit

The rifles use McMillan stocks and have extraordinarily thick Krieger barrels, with a 18 pound (8.2 kilograms) muzzle brake attached at the very end. If no muzzle brake was attached, the weapon would produce 200 ft·lbf (270 J) of free recoil, which is far beyond the shoulder-firing capacity of all humans. As such, the rifle is not meant to be shouldered and is usually fired from a bench rest or a heavy bipod. The rifle scope has significant eye relief to prevent any injury to the eye socket.

AmmunitionEdit

The rifle uses the .950 JDJ custom ammunition.
