Our Assessment: The Accuracy International AWM sniper rifle is a variant of the British Accuracy International Arctic Warfare (AW) rifle that was the basis of a family of sniper rifles using the Arctic Warfare name. As such the design details of the AWM variant are similar to the ones found in the basic AW rifle system. Compared to the AW, the AWM has a longer bolt to accommodate dimensionally larger magnum-length cartridges such as the .300 Winchester Magnum and the .338 Lapua Magnum. The bolt head, locking ring, and extractor and magazines were also revised to work with the increased size and operating pressures of magnum rifle cartridges. It is a true sniper in every sense of the word and able to engage targets effectively out to 1,640 yards. The AWM is used to make up the British L115A3 sniper system which was used to make one of the longest confirmed kills in history at 2,707 yards. The AWM is used by militaries all around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Russia to name a few. This AWM is chambered for .300 Win. Mag. and comes all set up with a Nightfoce scope and Atlas bipod. If you’ve been wanting to ring steel at long range, this is a great choice, all you need is ammo. Please see our photos and good luck!
