Umbra Applied Technologies Group Reveals First Look at New Sniper Rifle

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - May 26, 2016) - Umbra Applied Technologies (UAT), an Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc. subsidiary (OTC: UATG) announced today that it has made the first images available of its highly anticipated combat sniper rifle, the PRP-30 (Precision Rifle Platform-30 caliber), on it UAT-ARMS web page.

There is little doubt that the 2017 PRP-30, like its cousin the UBR-16, is an epoch-making combat weapon manufactured to an extraordinary standard of excellence. Manufactured from superior purpose driven materials and components, the PRP-30 design demonstrates not only its intended purpose as an elite combat tool but serves as a trophy, representative of American precision and accuracy. The PRP-30 boasts impressive chart topping specifications:

2.5 lb trigger pull 1 MOA accuracy   Vertical fore end grip
Enhanced trigger guard Melonite barrel   16, 18, & 22 inch barrels
7075 T6 forged Aluminum receiver's 1000 yd range   Extended takedown pins
Adjustable stock w/ consistent cheek weld Full-length rail   Bipod allows addition of M203

The PRP-30 can be configured as a high powered battle rifle or long range sniper rifle. The unique bipod system functions silently and allows for an unobstructed lower rail so mission specific accessories can be added beneath hand guard. The extended takedown pins allow for faster access to both upper and lower receivers and the 2.5 trigger has the shortest reset in the industry. The PRP-30 is slated to be released in the second quarter of 2017.

Chairman and CEO Alexander L. Umbra was quoted as saying, "The PRP-30 is without question the most versatile precision and combat squad platform available. Over the coming months UAT's precision conventional weapons platform will be rigorously field tested to ensure that the warfighter receives only the finest and most reliable tool available. I, as is the rest of the UATG family, am proud to be part of a program that assists the warfighter in his mission to defend freedom and democracy around the globe, while keeping us safe."
