Picon 911

At over 33 pounds, the Picon 911 may well be under half the weight of heavy machineguns which used to be the only infantry weapons to fire the same large-calibre round this rifle fires. Unfortunately it is still a very heavy weapon to carry and operate. It is a simple, rugged weapon that works much like a recoil-operated pistol. On firing, the barrel and bolt are both blown back until the round has cleared the weapon, whereupon the barrel stops and the bolt keeps moving to complete the cocking and loading cycle.

The rifle is fitted with a muzzle break and thick butt pad to protect the firer from the round's powerful recoil. It comes with a bipod and 10x scope, and fold-up iron sights as a backup. The normal magazine for this weapon is an 11-round box. The 911 has been designed to work in both sub-zero temperature and desert climes.
