The Precision Weapon Company first started to design the rifle around the mid-2000s. After seeing that the DSR-1 is quite heavy and that the GSG-9 need a sniper modular that is lighter than the DSR-1 (considering it weights 27lbs).
The PSR rifle was first created from Precision Weapon Company in Germany. Based loosely on the DSR-1 and Barrett 98 Bravo, Precision Weapon Company have designed one of the most accuarte sniper rifle in the world. It can hit .5-1 inch groups in a 800 yard target and has some reports of hitting a 1 inch group at over 1200 yards. It has a bolt action mechanicism include a hydraulic recoil buffer in the buttstock and a intergrated suppressor. The suppressor not only acts like a suppressor, it also acts as a muzzle compenstator to reduce recoil (especially from a full-powered .308 round). The rifle is made up of plastics, aluminum alloys and and a few metal that makes this gun weight only at 10lbs unloaded, and 12lbs loaded.
