The GM6 ‘Lynx’ is a Hungarian-made, 25-pound, semi-automatic bullpup rifle. The rifle was designed to be compact, lightweight, accurate, low-recoil, portable and easily deployable for immediate use. The Gepard GM6 Lynx is a semi-automatic anti-material rifle using Russian 12.7×108 mm ammo. Its purpose is to stop or disable targets such as light armored vehicles, light shelters and helicopters from 600 – 800 m range. Most rifles chambered in .50 BMG are heavy, long, bulky, heavily recoiling and are of a slowly operated bolt action. Many not even magazine fed.
Due to the bullpup configuration, most of the weight is re-distributed to the rear of the rifle allowing for the possibility of off hand firing. This is near impossible with most other .50 BMG rifles. Thanks to the unique barrel recoil technology, the rifle’s recoil is less than the other rifles in the same category. This design also allows the rifle to be transported at a length of only 915mm/36.5″. It weighs just 25lbs, with a slight rear bias weight distribution. Assembled with match grade Lothar Walther barrels, capable of sub-MOA accuracy with match grade ammunition.
