CQB DSR-1

Notes: The DSR-1 (Defensive Sniper Rifle-1) design evolved from the Erma SR-100, and is used by GSG-9, police SRT, and KSK, as well as some elite units of other Western European countries. It is a bullpup design, with a wider choice of calibers and a Picatinny rail optics mount to allow it to use many different sights. The barrel is free-floating for better accuracy. The bipod is attached to the barrel shroud by the top, and there is another Picatinny rail under the barrel for mounting a foregrip or additional optics. The barrel is match-grade and quick-change capable, and has a very efficient muzzle brake. The selector lever for the weapon has three positions: safe, heavy trigger pull, and light trigger pull, and the trigger is further adjustable for fine-tuning. Though the DSR-1 looks like it uses two magazines, the front magazine well is to place a magazine for quick reloading or to allow a quick change between ammunition types, and does not actually feed the weapon. The accuracy advertised by the manufacturer is almost unbelievable, but it is a very accurate weapon.

The DSR-1 Subsonic is an integrally-silenced sniper rifle, using a reduced-charge 7.62mm NATO round that CQB calls ".308 Subsonic." Most of the DSR-1 Subsonic is identical to the standard DSR-1, but the DSR-1 Subsonic uses a silenced barrel assembly that is fixed directly to the receiver (most silenced barrels are separate from the receiver). Therefore, while the barrel has an integral silencer, it is still a free-floating barrel, producing high accuracy for a silenced rifle.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This weapon was virtually unknown in the Twilight 2000 timeline; the .50 BMG version does not exist in that timeline.

Merc 2000 Notes: This is has been a big seller, both from AMP Technical Services in Germany and its British licensee, CQB Rifles.

PGM/FN Mini-Hecate

Notes: PGM Precision was originally a purely French company, but in the early 2000s, a part interest and the marketing rights were sold to FN Herstal of Belgium. Though PGM rifles are still built almost entirely by PGM in France, some final finishing work is done on the rifles by FN, and some improvements suggested by FN were also incorporated into PGM rifles.

As the name suggests, the Mini-Hecate is related to the Hecate II antimateriel rifle. The action of the Mini-Hecate of the Mini-Hecate is virtually identical to that of the Hecate II, as are many other components. The Mini-Hecateís receiver is made from aircraft-quality aluminum, though as the receiver is not a heavily-stressed component, there is no special reinforcement or thickness to the receiver. The barrel itself is cold hammer-forged and made by Lothar Walther, and is fluted and free-floating. The barrel has as standard a 27.2-inch length, though PGM/FN will sell the Mini-Hecate with other barrel lengths if requested by the customer; the barrel is tipped by fairly large muzzle brake. The stock folds to the side, and as with most other PGM/FN sniper rifles, has been made as light as possible by basically eliminating most of what would be considered a conventional stock. Nonetheless, the stock is still adjustable for length and is equipped with a thick recoil pad, as well as buttplate adjustable for height and angle and a cheekpiece adjustable for height. The pistol grip, fore-end, and a few other components are of polymer. A MIL-STD-1913 rail is mounted atop the receiver; the Mini-Hecate is normally sold with a special bipod designed specifically for this rifle, though the slot in the fore-end mounting the bipod allows for the use of virtually any bipod.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The Mini-Hecate is not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

PGM/FN Ultima Ratio

Notes: The PGM UR (Ultima Ratio) rifles are a series of specialized sniper rifles using the same base receiver, but different stocks, barrels, and/or sights. The receivers are of aircraft-aluminum alloy, and are almost frame-like in appearance. There are no iron sights, but Ultima Ratio rifles may be equipped with a Universal, Weaver, or MIL-STD-1913 rail atop the receiver. Most of the rest of the metalwork is of high-grade steel, with ambidextrous controls. The trigger group is described by PGM and FN as being of military design, but match-quality, and includes a two-stage trigger. Pistol grips, fore-ends, and a few other parts are of polymer. Barrels are match-grade, cold hammer-forged, and built of some of the finest steel available, and they are generally equipped with somewhat large but very effective muzzle brakes. These barrels are also quick release types, and can be replaced with barrels of different lengths or even barrels equipped with integral silencers. The stocks almost look rudimentary, but are in fact quite ergonomic and save weight as well. They have buttplates adjustable for length, height, and angle, and the buttplates are also equipped with a thick recoil pad.

The Intervention is the base model, using either 7.62mm NATO or .300 Winchester Magnum, or in recent years, the new .300 Winchester Short Magnum caliber. The 7.62mm version can fire either normal or subsonic ammunition, and can be fitted with a silencer. The barrel is finned to reduce weight and to promote cooling, and comes in 18.5-inch and 23.6-inch barrel lengths.

The Ultima Ratio Commando is variant of the Intervention designed for special operations units. The Commando is for the most part of the same design as the Intervention, but the entire Commando version is designed to be shorter and lighter than its Intervention counterpart. Though the receiver is only slightly shorter, the stock is quite a bit shorter (but still adjustable in the same manner as the Interventionís stock). The barrels available are 18.5 inches or 21.7 inches, but the barrels are fluted for about a third of the length of the barrel instead of the long, deeply finned barrels of the Intervention. The barrels are also fitted with a smaller, lighter muzzle brake than the Intervention rifles. Like the Intervention, Commando can be fitted with a special silenced barrel if chambered for 7.62mm NATO; however, this option is available only with an 18.5-inch barrel. The .300 Winchester Magnum chambering is not available in the Commando version of the Ultima Ratio, but the additional chambering of .300 Remington Short Action UltraMag is. The Commando comes in two base models: The Commando I with a fixed stock, and the Commando II with a stock which folds to the left.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This was very much a French-only weapon during the Twilight War (and of course, FN did not have an interest in the Twilight 2000 timeline). The Intervention and Commando in magnum chamberings, in particular, were the mark of special operations teams. However, the .300 Winchester Short Magnum chambering is not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline, nor is .300 Remington Short Action UltraMag.

Merc 2000 Notes: This weapon was not sold outside of France, except to certain select customers.
