Finnish army to receive new sniper rifle

SAKO, a Beretta subsidiary, has announced that the Finnish Defence Forces will purchase TRG M10 precision rifle systems, their spare parts and sniper equipment.

As noted by the company, the TRG M10 is a bolt-action, magazine-fed precision rifle equipped with a magnifying optical sight. Combined with the high-performance 8.6 x 70 mm precision cartridge, it allows snipers to hit a variety of targets at ranges exceeding 1,400 metres.

The rifle systems also include an interchangeable set of calibers, which allows training with the same cartridges as the M23 rifle system, which has been developed in collaboration with Sako.
