The Harris Gunworks M-96 is a semi automatic sniper rifle. Manufactured by Harris Gunworks at Phoenix, Arizona, this is chambered for .50 BMG currently used heavily by the United States and Malaysian armed forces.
The weapon is made of steel and anodized aluminum, with a black teflon coating on all exposed parts. The adjustable gas system is hard chromed for increased life. The barrel is heavy, free floating, and of match grade with a standard Muzzle Brake attached. The action is roughly based upon the AK-47 action, with modifications to make it suitable for a high powered rifle. Mounted on top of the receiver is a standard Weaver-type rail, for mounting scopes. Integrated in this rail are rudimentary iron sights. The rifle was designed for military use, and has been tested under a variety of adverse weather conditions.
