WARNING: This weapon is too powerful to be used by persons not in power armor.
The ASGR was developed in conjunction with the SSGR and ASGR, taking the strengths of the older HGR and eliminating its weaknesses, allowing for heavier, military use. Unlike the other rifles in the GR series, however, the GSR is a dedicated sniper rifle, using different rounds and magazines.
The GSR is a standard layout Gauss rifle, with a box magazine placed before the grip, which is placed on a very long, boxy body casing. The top and bottom of the case have universal rails, which allow for the addition of accessories. The sides of this box have large heat vents to cool the Gauss coils. On the protruding end of the barrel is a large flash hider/muzzle break.
The first round is loaded into the action by pulling back on the cocking handle. Further rounds are loaded by the cycling action during firing. Once rounds are loaded into the action, they are pushed forward by the bolt and into the barrel, where the charged coils propel the round down the four twisted rails, accelerating the round to high rates of speed while giving it a twist to allow for better ballistics.
Construction: The GSR is created mainly out of composite materials such as carbon fiber and Carbon nanotubes, in an attempt to lower the weight while keeping the rifle fairly strong. The materials are reinforced to allow them greater strength and durability, meaning the gun is unlikely to break during battle without a considerable effort.
Field Maintenance Procedure: Wipe and clean after every mission, taking care to scrub the rails and all moving parts. Lubrication is optional. The outer casing must be removed to service the coils, and is removed by undoing four bolts in the gap between the stock and main body, allowing the casing to be slid off.
