Current Armed Forces Sniper Rifles


This is the place where I would like to keep a very up to date and as complete as possible list of sniper rifles used by the armed forces from around the world. The rifles that are included here are standard issue sniper rifles. I also have a column for rifles that are not standard issue but are used by units in the respective militaries (generally special forces units). If you can help in ANY way to update the list or make corrections, please EMAIL me! I would like this list to contain all countries, no matter how large or small, or what political flavor.
