Our achievements

From the start of production in 2005, our rifles have won many prizes at international and national shooting championship, including the most technology demanding – benchrest shooting.

Australian 1000 Yard National Record

Well before «Tsar-pushka» we had tried out some new principles of highly accurate long range shooting. As a result of this we got Australian 1000 yard National Heavy Gun record (10 shots) – 13.5 cm  (5.3 inches).

These small inventions have also resulted in the 1 Mile Championship win in 2004 in the US, which is still the longest shooting competition worldwide.

In this very contest we used .408 Cheytac – the cartridge, which would later on both «Tsar-pushka» and LOBAEV Arms rely on.

World Benchrest Championship 2005 (USA)

Our rifles have won the silver medal (HV class) at the World Benchrest Championship 2005 (USA).
