Introduction

The SPR-2 is a modern anti-materiel rifle of Indonesian origin. It was developed as a low cost alternative to the various Western anti-materiel rifles. The SPR-2 has been heavily inspired by the Serbian M93 Black Eagle and the overall looks are similar.

Design

The SPR-2 is based around the receiver which houses the bolt action mechanism and detachable magazine. An adjustable skeleton buttstock with monopod, a carrying handle and bipod are fitted. The free float barrel is fluted and features a large muzzle brake. An optical sight is fitted and back up iron sights are not present.

Firepower

The SPR-2 fires the 12.7x99mm NATO round out to ranges of about 1.5 km. The detachable magazine holds five rounds. Accuracy is believed to be good but not on par with Western rifles.

Users

The SPR-2 is used by various Indonesian special forces and law enforcement units. It might be available for export.
