The GOL-Sniper Magnum is a bolt-action sniper rifle designed by the German company Gol-Matic GmbH of Birkenau, Hessen. The rifle is available in tactical as well as sporting and match configurations. It is developed from Austrian Steyr SSG 69.
The rifle was designed by professional German gunsmith Gottfried Prechtl, who specializes in custom Mauser rifles. The bolt-action is based on Mauser M 98 Magnum system, which was introduced in the late 19th century on the Mauser Gewehr 98. Each rifle is custom made per requisitions of every customer, whether they be for tactical or sporting purposes therefore there are many options and configurations. A Sto-Con walnut stock forms the body of the rifle which is mounted with a Lothar Walther precision barrel and Mauser bolt. The walnut stock increases the flexibility of the rifle butt and therefore reduces recoil allowing for more precision when shooting.
