Saddam’s Mid-Range “Sniper” Rifle: The Tabuk Sniper

VIDEO

Created during the Iran-Iraq War, the Tabuk Sniper is one of those oddballs of historical firearms. Although referred to as a “Sniper” rifle, it really never was one to begin with. Chambered in 7.62x39mm, the rifle was intended as a squad or platoon support weapon to compliment the RPK within Saddam’s army. It is essentially based on the Yugo M76 but not chambered in 8mm Mauser, built of course by Yugoslavian engineers cooperating with Iraq.
