    The bolt action is not the Tikka T3, I don't know what it actually is, it's just not a T3

    I agree that it looks more like an Accuracy International product, but I am more inclined to think it is the AXAICS chassis. Additional information and/or pictures would help as well.

    The stock does look like the AT, but the rest looks (to me at least, again more pictures would help) like an AX. The rail system and muzzle brake on the AX308, as well as what can be see in the photo forward of the trigger guard look essentially the same. Unfort when I went to look at AI accessories, the pages were being 'updated' so I cannot tell if the options to customize an AT or AX with features of the other are available.

    Did some digging around. Yes it is a AX 308 which Accuracy International introduced to replace the Arctic Warfare L-96.

    Unrelated to anything, but part of me hates how Picatinny rails have made every rifle look...the same-ish.

    Edited: I get the utility and functionality, but I don't like the aesthetics.

    Can anyone ID this rifle? Sorry, I know the water mark and quality of the photo doesn't help.

    I believe it is an Accuracy International Arctic Warfare PM/L96A1, basically what the AX308 is to be replacing.

    What's the rifle in the middle? On the left is a L96A1 and the 2 on the right are Barretts, one with a suppressor.

    This rifle at the bottom [on the pic to the left] appears to be a L-96 with a fixed suppressor - I had no idea L-96s came with fixed suppressors. Not sure what the rifle in the other 2 pics is however. The same rifle also appears on the pic with the L-96. Initially I thought it was a TPG-1 but it isn't although it does share a lot of similarities.

    Sig Sauer Blaser mate looks like a "tactical 2 version" or higher
    Its a "straight pull action" Very posh rifle
    By the look of the projectiles id say its a 300WM or 308W ...its made in 338 Lapua as well

    The Aussie Army in Astan used this rifle but with a folding stock.. The stock is made by an Australian company named Xtek
