The FR F2 Sniper Rifle

The FR F2 (French: Fusil à Répétition modèle F2; English: Bolt-action Rifle, F2 model) is the standard light sniper rifle of the French military. It is an upgrade from the FR F1. It was manufactured by MAS (an abbreviation of Manufacture d'Armes St. Etienne - one of several government-owned arms factories in France). MAS now belongs to GIAT Industries, now NEXTER. It uses 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition, and is equipped with a scope, French army standard issue being either an APX L806 or SCROME J8. The FR F2 utilizes the same bolt design as the older MAS-36 infantry rifle.

The FR F2 is designed for shooting at point targets at distances up to 800 meters. (Source: Wikipedia)

weenies, but the truth is they have very modern state of the art weaponry in all ranges of sizes from small arms to nuclear powered aircraft carriers. they have advanced technology fighter jets, and their special forces groups are among the best in the world. they have developed a very fine integrated future warrior system called Felin and a family system of state of the art bullpup rifles to arm them. they are a tough bunch of customers in fact, no matter what the uninformed may think or believe.

Your friends,

PS yes we agree, we would feel very well armed in the field with this weapon too.

Now if only they had the balls to use them once in a while.

The french have a wonderful history of having others fight
for them. Nice weapons, but they tend to have scratches on
them from being dropped.

I have no idea

I've never fired it, never handled it. I'm a better shot than most, but still not much on the long distance stuff, so I'd probably rather have the FAMAS or whatever their primary battle rifle is called. Bolt rifle really aren't my cup 'o tea.

And no offense, but he probably doesn't have enough experience with the FAMAS to have an informed opinion. That said, i don't have any experience at all with one, so it could be the biggest piece of shit in the world. But I would feel more comfortable with a basic infantry weapon than a sniper weapon system.
