Sport Shot 7.62

The Sport Shot is a bolt action rifle made by Galactic Horizon in YE 40 and chambered in 7.62 x 51 mm KZ rounds, it is a sturdy and punchy rifle available on the open market for the masses.

About

Galactic Horizon decided to begin making firearms in YE 40 for them to use both around the base and on expeditions, it was designed to be a tough and durable weapon that could handle being thrown around and keep on firing afterwards – chambered in 7.62 KZ due to the sheer abundance of that particular cartridge, so they tapped into the market of an already popular round instead of opting to make some new, obscure bullet that wouldn't be as well known or have a pre-existing reputation like the 7.62.

Ex-Saint operative Terrins Dassau of Galactic Horizon’s security force had a lot of input on the weapon's design due to his somewhat “advanced” experience with firearms.

Weapon Mechanisms

Firing Mechanism: - Bolt-action.

The bolt consists of a tube of metal inside of which the firing mechanism is housed, and which has at the front or rear of the tube several metal knobs, or “lugs”, which serve to lock the bolt in place. The bolt is manually rotated and pulled back. When this happens, the round in an internal or box magazine is pushed up via tension in the spring in said magazine. When the bolt is pushed forward, it pushes the round into the chamber and locks once rotated into the proper position. All types of firearms have bolt-action varieties, but bolt actions are most common in rifles.

Loading: The mag-release near the trigger is depressed to release the previous magazine before the next one is inserted – the bolt is rotated 90degrees upwards and pulled back to pull a round before being pushed forward and being rotated 90degrees down to chamber the round.

Press the magazine release on the underside of the rifle to eject the previous mag and then slide a new one up, into the cavity, ensuring it is locked in before cycling a round and firing.

The bolt must be cycled each time before firing.

Firing Modes: Single shot bolt action and safety
Safety Mechanism: The safety is located near the trigger, it is a simple switch that shows an orange strip of colour when off and a green strip when the safety is on
Weapon Sight: A two-pronged rear sight post lines up with with a circle upon the front post, in addition the rifle has a rail that optics can be mounted to
Attachment Hard Points: The rifle has a rail along the top for alternate optics to be mounted as well as a hardpoint at each end for a weapon sling to be attached
