Product Description

Since its beginnings, AI has gone through many transitions. These include; ownership by a private equity company, administration in 2005 and a subsequent buy-out led by its current management team. Against this background of business progress and regress, we have become one of the foremost suppliers of high accuracy, robust and reliable sniper rifles in the world, with customers in more than 60 countries that include many of the most prestigious and influential military and law enforcement agencies on the globe. The company has achieved this by a significant investment in facilities, machinery and people and by employing Six Sigma techniques to improve manufacturing processes.
