The brand “SNIPEX” belonging to the Kharkov chemical concern “XADO”, presented a new long-range large-caliber rifle for high-precision firing with a caliber of 14.5×114 mm.

It is noted that during the creation of the Snipex T-Rex rifle the designers relied on the wishes of the military: it should be a classic “bolt”, the minimum possible weight, without automatics, simple and trouble-free, designed for rigorous operation.
Due to the impressive power of the embankment and thanks to the characteristic drawing of the back support (monopod), this model received the working title “Tyrannosaurus” or “T-Reh”.
