BSA Service Rifles c. 321-354 by Pyrosity BSA Service Rifles c. 321-354 by Pyrosity
I haven't announced anything about it yet, but I'm going to be making some huge sweeping changes to the Epiverse fictional canon. I want to experiment with setting it in it's own history completely separate from the alternate history time line it has been in up to now.

The four most well known rifles that BSA produced in recent history. They continue to serve the Old World North in the present day, though the military is rumored to be looking for possible replacements for these rifles.

The top two pictured, the Spike and the Lee, both use the dated 8.61mm cartridge, while the bottom two use the modern 6.91mm cartridge. The Ross uses a helical magazine, while the Sess is a bullpup.

The family overall is known for sturdy construction and reliability, though the older weapons suffer in their heavy weight. The Sess on the other hand is extremely lightweight, but early versions have some jamming issues and it is known to be more picky about maintenance. By the present day, the Sess has been re-engineered to acceptable battlefield standards of wear and reliability. While lacking the punch of its older cousins, the long-barreled marksman variant of the Sess still shines as a designated marksman rifle.

Quite the large rounds for these weapons to be firing.

Balor military doctrine favors heavier ammunition, so their "light" round is more of an intermediate sized bullet.

I prefer badass rounds. And here you succeeded :)
