The New Unique Alpine TPG-3 was built from its predecessors TPG-1 and TPG-2, together with FNH USA LLC known as FN Ballista used by US Special Forces Commands (SOCOM). The SOCOM “PSR1” tender has demanded a multicaliber sniper rifle. Based on the high modular design of each part of the rifle, we continued to develop the multicaliber ability of the TPG-1 and TPG-2 and modified it for missions under extreme conditions. Key aspects like reduced weight, consistent accuracy after barrel changes, were strictly realized. We focused the development of our barrels profiles. The .338LM`s progressive spin guarantees smallest strike pattern. FEATURES
a) Firing Pin Safety b) Safety catch in case of a internal safety failure c) Grip safety (optional)
The barrels can be changed in less than one minute without any special tools or other devices and fixed repeatability in the system by means of four loss-protected integrated clamping screws.
The magazines are made out of fiberglass-reinforced, high-performance plastic. They are available in all three calibers and come in a short and long versions. The high-strength plastic is far more superior to metal as a material for magazines since the material does not bend or deform under stress like a traditional steel magazine; therefore, feeder faults belong to the past.
The buttstock is collapsible to the right without changing the overall width of the gun. Simultaneously, the bolt handle is secured. Overall length, cheek piece, and butt plate height angle and height are fully adjustable. A picatinny-interface allows for the use of a monopod or spacer plate from our range of accessories.
Freely positionable Picatinny mounting rails (MilSpec 1913 Rail) are available in five different lengths and can be mounted and form-fitted to eight different angles around the hand guard.
