A sniper rifle is a portable, long-range, high precision shoulder ammunition equipped with night-vision and telescopic sight devices, which help in visual aiming by magnifying targets. It also comprises a lightweight bolt carrier, spiked feet, back view extended monopod, rear grip, detachable muzzle brake, adjustable scope rings, bipod, socket, and spiked feet as standard components. Unlike conventional guns or pistols, sniper rifles can possess bullets for a longer duration in barrels and shoot with much higher velocity and accuracy while absorbing the recoil produced through firing. Apart from this, it is stable, quick, flexible, and capable of destroying light armored vehicles and aircraft. Consequently, the sniper rifle is used to provide detailed surveillance from concealed positions and neutralize high-value targets to mitigate combat. Currently, it is mainly available in long-range precision and bolt-action rifle types with different ranges.
