The M93 Black Arrow (Serbian: М93 „црна стрела“) is a 12.7mm or .50 caliber anti-materiel rifle developed and manufactured by Zastava Arms.

Overview[edit]

The primary purpose of this rifle is long range engagement of hardly visible targets and due to that, it is provided only with an optical sight, which is included in the rifle set (8x magnification with the division up to 1,800 m). Its mount can accept the sights of other manufacturers as well.

Members of the family were tested in operations fought in Kosovo and the Republic of Macedonia in extreme conditions.

Design and Features[edit]

The Zastava M93 Black Arrow rifle is available in both 12.7×108mm and .50 BMG. It is a bolt action, air-cooled, magazine-fed firearm with a fixed stock.
