Truvelo Armoury, manufacturers of the CMS sniper and ant-materiel rifle family, launched the Anti-Materiel Rifle with Integrated Suppression (AMRIS) – perhaps the first ever fully integrated suppressor on a rifle of this type – at AAD 2018.
Chambered for the 20x42mm round, weighing approx. 10kg and with a range quoted at 1,000m, the sub-sonic secondary anti-materiel/sniper rifle has a folding stock and can easily be carried in a backpack. When Gen. Steve Maloma, Head of South Africa’s Special Forces, heard about AMRIS during the launch event, his first question was: “How much does it cost – and how fast can I get them?”
MONCh will report further on AMRIS in the near future after an imminent factory visit.
