MACS M2: Croatian Anti-Materiel .50 Cal

All the best firearms history channels streaming to all major devices:

Among the many firearms designed and built in Croatia under the duress of the Homeland War was the MACS M2, a single-shot anti-materiel rifle chambered for .50 BMG. Designed by an engineer named Jankovic, these were in the field with Croatian units starting in 1994, and were used effectively in Operation Storm in 1995. Mechanically, they are very simple, just turnbolt actions in cast aluminum chassis. The bolts are the most interesting element, with 9 locking lugs in three rows. They were fitted with 10x Kahles scopes, although the one we are looking at today no longer has its optic.

A big thanks to the Croatian Police Museum (Muzej Policije) in Zagreb for giving me access to film this cool piece for you! Check them out at:
