Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
McMillan Group International has been awarded a contract to deliver 115 TAC-50 rifles to the U.S. Department of the Army, TACOM (Rock Island Arsenal). McMillan was also awarded multiple international contracts to deliver TAC-50 rifles to the Canadian Army, the Republic of Georgia and a Paraguay Law Enforcement Agency. Paraguay also requested TAC-308 rifles as part of its contract.
According to Ryan McMillan, vice president of McMillan, “The TAC-50's strength is a long-range anti-personnel firearm where precision accuracy and high power are required at extreme ranges, but the TAC-50 is also effective in the traditional role of anti-materiel firearm. The TAC-308 is designed for urban tactical scenarios where accuracy and reliability are critical.”
McMillan’s TAC-50 is the preferred issue 50 caliber for many government and law enforcement agencies, including international agencies, as a Long Range Sniper Rifle.
McMillan’s TAC-50 rifle is also credited with the longest confirmed successful engagement on record. A Canadian Army sniper executed a confirmed 2,430 meter (2,657 yards) shot in Afghanistan setting a world record for the longest successful tactical shot in combat.
The TAC-50 is based on the McMillan 50 caliber action—the same action that dominates 50 caliber benchrest competition. A premium match grade barrel, tuned trigger, hand bedded McMillan fiberglass stock and meticulous benchrest gunsmithing contribute to the extreme accuracy known for the TAC-50.
Despite its power, the TAC-50 is surprisingly easy to shoot owing to the proprietary design of the McMillan muzzle brake and geometry of the stock.
The McMillan TAC-308 is chambered in .308 Winchester with a heavy, match-grade barrel. The McMillan tactical rifle stock features a spacer system, flush mount swivel cups, and adjustable integral cheekpiece. The TAC-308 is produced in two variants. The TAC-308A includes an A3-5 stock with detachable box magazine and 20" barrel with thread cap. The TAC-308B includes an A3-5 stock with detachable box magazine and 24" barrel with thread cap.
