The M89-SR is designed as a dual purpose weapon. Designed for both urban anti-terrorist
operations as well as a battlefield sniper rifle. The rifle is based on the M-14 rifle
in a Bullpup configuration. The factory guarantees 1 MOA and offers a full range of
accessories and sales service.
I have no direct experience with this rifle, but hopefully that will change if T.C.I. can
get one of their rifles over to the states to be field tested. It is an interesting
design, and appears very compact, and is a full 2 lbs lighter then the U.S. Army M24.
with a Guarantee of 1 MOA it should be a darn good shooter. (I have a copy of a 100m
target with 5 rounds in .5" using Military M852 (Sierra 168gr Match King in the standard
M118 brass) that is pretty impressive, especially for a semi-auto.) It appears as if this
would make a great anti-terrorist, police sharpshooter rifle. Though I am not a big fan of
semi's in a Sniper's role in combat. That flying brass can easily give your position
away and its tough to police up while trying to stay concealed, cant leave any target
identifiers behind. But the rifle would lend itself well as a support weapon.
Email T.C.I. for more information.
