The Zastava M12 Black Spear is a 12.7mm or .50 caliber anti-materiel rifle developed by Zastava Arms of Serbia

Description[edit]

The M12 is based on the Mauser action. The barrel interior is chrome plated, and on the exterior has flutes to improve cooling. It has a muzzle brake to help reduce recoil.[1]

The trigger pull and position can be adjusted; a safety mechanism is also incorporated on the trigger. The stock is made of aluminium and has a built-in buffer, to further reduce the effect of recoil, and a third folding leg, which can be adjusted in height, to complement the bipod assembled under the barrel.[1]

It can be chambered for either 12.7×108mm (maximum range 1,800 m) or .50 BMG (maximum range 1,600 m) ammunition. On top of the chamber has a Picatinny rail to fix different types of optical devices.[1]
