Picking through the trash in the garbage bin of life.
Can understand your questioning the story. There is some vision of her on one of the telly stations, but this time she has a bolt actioned rifle.Noel / Canberra
An SLR sniper rifle. LOL. Safest place to be at a 1,000m is the person being aimed at. Pity the poor bastards either side...
SLR's or its close cousin, the FN-FAL are notoriously hard to mount optical sights, especially telescopic sights. The rifle hinges in the middle just forward of the magazine, creating a 'flex" situation between the two sections. Side mounts are near impossible as the cocking is on the left of the acton and the ejection port is on the right does not leave any metal space to securely fix mounts. The best option was a small AimPoint type sight (similar the the British SUIT sight) to be mounted in place of the standard rear aperture sight. I think this whole set of photos is more bulldust posed and jury rigged for international consumption. The ME has form in this area.
The photo I saw had the scope mounted on a flimsy rail. Looked like a PR fabrication.
