    Haenel RS9 Sniper Rifle

    The HAENEL rifle system RS9 is the magnum variant of HAENEL RS8. The effective range is 1500 m. Due to the bigger caliber the RS9 has a longer and stronger barrel, as well as slightly larger overall dimensions. The bolt is adopted to the magnum-length .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges. The system is perfectly optimised for this calibre: superior and consistant accuracy in a perfectly balanced system, to provide maximum performance for long range shooting.

    The RS9 comes with a detachable 10 round magazine as a standard. A special muzzle brake is fitted to reduce recoil, jump and flash. The optional silencer easily mounts on the muzzle break. Due to an optimised construction the RS9 rifle weighs about 7.5 kilograms only – which offers advantages in handling the system.
