15 State-of-the-Art Sniper Rifles

Venom Tactical Taipan

Picture 1 of 15

The Venom Tactical Taipan is designed for extreme long-range operations; with the .338 Lapua round delivering deadly performance out past 1800 yards.

The Taipan utilizes a Remington long-action receiver blueprinted to Venom Tactical’s exacting tolerances. Lock-up is tight and secure for premium performance. Like all Venom Tactical rifles the Taipan’s bolt is Venom’s elliptical design; machined and ground from 4340. The Taipan is equipped with a Brux barrel made to Venom Tactical specifications.

The barreled action is firmly mounted to a Manners composite T-4A stock with a textured forend and palm swell area. This stock allows for an adjustable cheek weld and is designed for shooting from the prone position. The Stock includes a 1-inch Decelerator butt pad. This rifle gives you everything you need in a long-range sniper platform and nothing you don’t. You can’t exactly call it bare bones, because the workmanship is top-notch. But it certainly is not cluttered.

The Taipan has a five-round detachable box magazine and is shipped with a Venom Antidote muzzle brake installed. You can find out even more information at www.venomtactical.com.
