The Polish Border Guard receives the first Grot-7.62

During the POLSECURE fair, the Border Guard presented the first Grot-7.62N semi-automatic sniper rifle, which has been added to the equipment of Polish border guards.

In Kielce, the Polish Border Guard presented the first received Grot-7.62N semi-automatic sniper rifle. The weapon, supplied by Fabryka Broni Łucznik-Radom, will be used by officers stationed on the eastern border of Poland as well as those serving in the Security Operations Departments, which specialize in combating organized crime and apprehending particularly dangerous individuals.

As MILMAG Editorial Team learned, the Border Guard ordered a total of 65 rifles, of which 20 have been delivered so far. The weapons were equipped with ASE UTRA sound suppressors, which Grot rifles are certified for, Magpul bipods, Leupold Mark HD 3.6-18×44 optical sights, SPUHR mounts, and carrying straps. Interestingly, the buyer did not specify a factory fully adjustable stock, opting for a simpler Magpul MOE instead (New deliveries of firearms for the Polish Border Guard).

The semi-automatic sniper rifle Grot-7.62N, caliber 7.62 mm, is a modern, original, Polish design, chambered for 7.62 mm x 51 NATO (.308 Win.) rifle ammunition. It was developed in two versions with barrels of lengths 406 mm (16”) and 508 mm (20”). It is the result of cooperation between the Fabryka Broni Łucznik-Radom and the Military University of Technology (WAT). The rifle is based on the general design scheme of the standard (basic) Grot C16 FB-A2 assault rifle, caliber 5.56 mm, characterized by similar arrangement and ergonomics.
