RGSL-13 Sniper Rifle

by Rupert Boleyn


Here's my first attempt at a Solomani small arm. This weapon is the reason I'm going for a 5mm standard. 5mm is the smallest dart dia that will give a SR of 300m, or to look at it another way at 6000 m/s anything bigger than 5mm would've been a waste. The weight of 18.025 kg is heavy, but compared to the 13mm sniper rifle in the RCEG at 28.9 kg, or the Crunch Gun at 53.787 kg it's a lightweight. Penetration is the same as the 13mm and better than a Crunch Gun without specialty ammo. Comments would be appreciated.
