Exhibition “Arms and Security – 2017”
The 14th exhibition “Arms and Security”, which took place in Kyiv on October 10–13, 2017, brought together under one roof leading Ukrainian and foreign arms manufacturers who showcased latest military developments.
XADO company presented to the public its own products: Snipex .50 BMG large-caliber rifle for long-range shooting, which many might be familiar with after the last exhibition; its variation with the 12.7×108 caliber; and the new development — the heavy-weight Snipex 14.5.
The main function of the semi-automatic large-caliber rifle is long-range target shooting: Snipex 12.7 and Snipex .50 BMG are capable of reaching the target at the distance of up to 2,200–2,500 m, and Snipex 14.5 — of up to 5,000 m!
Specialists unanimously noted a number of advantages of Snipex .50 BMG / Snipex 12.7, such as the overall reliability, compact size (total length — 1,220 mm; barrel length — 750 mm), low-level recoil on firing achieved due to original design solutions; ability to quickly change the aiming point, etc. Due to automatic case ejection, this single-shot rifle ensures quick reloading.
Snipex 14.5 is a long-range anti-materiel rifle. It aroused great interest among the guests, especially professional snipers. The rifle is designed to hit the target at long distances and can not only destroy a fortified firing point, but also stop an armored vehicle. The design is simple and very user-friendly. Rigid barrel locking is achieved through rotating bolt action. Schneller-type trigger system makes sight shooting easier.
XADO company also presented at the exhibition the proven line of products for gun care: gun oils; cleaning greases; foam and gel for removing copper and lead fouling, powder residue; and, of course, the special gel-REVITALIZANT® for restoring the barrel and improving its precision.
