Rifle SNIPEX 14.5 is a semi-automatic large-caliber weapon, the main function of which is long-range target shooting.

Developed by XADO Chemical Group, Ukraine

The bullpup design, where the action is located behind the trigger group, was developed with ultimately easy operation and maximally available maintenance system in mind.

Tight barrel locking is achieved through a rotating bolt. During loading the cartridge is placed into the magazine opening by open breech. Schneller-type trigger system makes sight shooting easier.

The rifle is designed exclusively for shooting resting and, to that end, is fitted with folding bipods and an additional support under the buttstock.

Recoil reduction (free-floating barrel, gun carriage system) is achieved due to an original design, and the rifle does not create any unpleasant load for the shooter.

The rifle was introduced at the XIV International specialized exhibition ‘Arms and Security – 2017’ in Kyiv.
