    Just watched "behind enemy lines" last night. Fairly good flick.
    What was that big ugly black rifle that the Bosnian/Serb/Muslam sniper was carring around? The shape of the magazine reminded me of a Mauser action, but the rest was unfamiliar. Any opinions?

    Not for sure, but I thought it looked very much like the Mauser that Springfield was offering some time back, Israel sniper/countersniper....the stock/muzzle break and magazine area looked identical....JMHO

    The rifle is a L96 ( PM ) made by Accuraccy International
    which later made the now " famous " AW ( Artic warfare )
    series which is based on the L96

    the L96 is the one on the top and the newer AW rifle
    is the one in the middle
