Also known as the L96A1. The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare rifle is a family of bolt-action sniper rifle designed and manufactured by the British company Accuracy International. It has proved popular as a civilian, police and military rifle since its introduction in the 1980s.

The AW is almost unique in being a purpose-designed sniper rifle, rather than an accurized version of an existing, general-purpose rifle. Rather than a traditional wooden or polymer rifle stock, the AW has an aluminium bedding block bolted directly to the action, and which extends the entire length of the stock. Two hollow polymer "half stocks", usually green, are in turn bolted to the bedding block, creating a remarkably rugged, yet light, weapon.

The AW's distinctive green thumbhole/pistol-grip stock, unique design and reliability in adverse weather conditions have made it a popular, if expensive, weapon. The rifle is extremely accurate (about 0.5 MOA), and its maximum effective range with a Schmidt & Bender 6 x 42 scope is around 600m. The AW is usually equipped with an integrated bipod and it also has a monopod in the butt.

Most Arctic Warfare rifles are chambered for 7.62 mm NATO rounds, but can also be fitted for the 5.56 mm rounds. It is mounted with a standard scope and a muzzle brake to cut down on recoil. Currently it is in service with many countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, The Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, and Sweden.

Each country's rifles differ slightly. The Swedish PSG-90 for example, uses a different scope to that of the L96A1, and also uses sabot rounds. The German Bundeswehr adopted a folding-stock Magnum version of the AW chambered in .300 Winchester magnum (7.62x67 mm) as the Scharfsch├╝tzengewehr 22 (G22).

In early 1980's British Army started the search for the replacement of the aging L42 Enfield sniper rifles. Main compettitors were british companies Parker-Hale with their model 82 bolt action rifle, and Accuracy International, with their PM rifle. Eventually, PM rifle won the competition and was accepted by British Army under the designation of L96.

One of the most notorious features of the PM rifle was design of the stock. Instead of the solid polymer or wooden stock, PM/L96 used hollow polymer stock, made from two halves and assembled around aluminium bedding block, that extends to whole stock lenght. L96 also was equipped with backup iron sights.

In mid-1980s Sweden forces began their own quest for the new sniper rifle, that could survive heavy nordic environments. The AI again become the winner in this race with improved L96 design, named "Arctic warfare". In 1988 Swedish forces adopt AW rifle in 7.62mm NATO chambering under the designation of PSG.90. British Army, in its turn, also adopted this improved design under the designation of L96A1, as well as many other militaries and Law Enforcement agencies around the world. In 1998, the Bundeswehr (Germany Army) also adopted the AW Super Magnum rifle chambered in .300 Winchester magnum (germany designation 7.62x67mm) as charfschutzengewehre (sniper rifle - german) G22.

Built by Accuracy International of Portsmuth, England, this line of rifles is among the best in the World of sniper rifles today. This rifle can shot less than 2" (51mm) groups at the distances of 600 yards (550m), using boat-tail match ammunition. Arctic Warfare is a line of 5 rifles. Original Arctc Warfare was designed for the British military. It gained its designation by special anti-icing features, allowing sniping operations to be carried out under Arctic conditions as low as -40C (-104F)! Other models are Police (AWP), Suppressed (AWS), Folding (AWF) and Super Magnum (AW SM). Three first rifles designed for 7.62mm NATO ammunition, while Super Magnum can be chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum and 7mm Remington Magnum. AW has a 26" (660mm) barrel, AWP has 24" (609mm). AW SM barrels available in lentths from 24" (609mm) to 27" (686mm). The standart scopes supplied by Accuracy International are Smidt&Bender 3-12X variable or the Leupold Mark 4 fixed 10X scope.

This airsoft gun is not to be misrepresented as a real firearm or gun that is manufactured by Accuracy International and is merely an airsoft gun that fires 6mm pellets. The manufacturer of this airsoft gun is Well.
