Quicksilver Industries: 'Andean' Sniper Rifle by Shockwave9001 Quicksilver Industries: 'Andean' Sniper Rifle by Shockwave9001

Quicksilver Industries is proud to present her first sniper rifle. Chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum, this baby packs quite a punch, while maintining a relatively small size due to its bullpup design. It features a neat bullpup telescoping bolt action mechanism and a free floating barrel. It has a built-in monopod, and an adjustable cheek rest.

Quicksilver Ind. produces top of the notch firearms made for easy and cheap mass production, while maintaining very high quality. Our firearms will always be fully ambidextrous, two toned, operator-friendly and accessory-friendly.

Credit to Benjoo for his awesome muzzle brake.

Looking back at my photostream a while ago I noticed that I barely build any sniper rifles. I thought it was time to change that, and the Andean is the result. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Yours truly,
~ Shockwave

Is it practical? It looks very cool but for some reason it just doesn't seem too practical to me. Very cool though.

In your opinion, what especially doesn't seem practical to you?

The bolt seems too far back. Yes, it's a bullpup. I understand. It just seems it would be very awkward to jack a new round into the chamber. Uncomfortable. The .338 Lapua is a rather big round too. I feel there'd be much kick to it. I've shot .308 Winchesters (though a Lapua is bigger) before and even out of a full sized heavy rifle it is rather strong. I don't have much experience with bullpup systems so I don't know for sure but just my opinion. Plus the forestock doesn't look too stable like that. Definitely looks cool, just don't reckon it will provide much help in stability. Then again, I may be wrong.

The receiver is heavily based on the DTA SRS, which also has a .50 BMG variant. Of course I can't test my design irl, but based on the knowledge that there is a bullpup bolt action out there (which doesn't have any flaws as far as I know) I can only assume this would work too.

Regarding the handguard, of course it's fixed. A bottom rail can be added, as well as a bipod on the front end of it.

This the gun. I found it. You made a sniper that is bullpup! It also looks really functional from a gunner's point of view, which just makes my day. Thanks man.

Also one of my personal favorites! :D
Bullpup and sniper rifle is quite a rare combination, actually. Needless to say, that is exactly what I wanted to do :D
Thanks for the love!

It doesn't look like there's enough room to cycle the bolt, but I take it that is what's meant by "telescoping bolt."  I like it a lot; very practical-looking.

Exactly ;-) you can see the bolt is divided into two sections.
Thank you!

needs someplace to put a bipod,especially since it's in .338 Mag.
Otherwise, pretty awesome

I did think about that actually. You can screw in a bipod at the front of the handguard, but I thought it looked a ton better without it.
Thanks!
