2017 US Army International Sniper Competition Winners Used Lanxang Tactical Rifles

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

SSG Jonathan Roque and SGT Brandon Kelley from 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, were the overall winners of the 2017 US Army International Sniper Competition at Ft Benning, GA. The team used Lanxang Tactical 20″ VL34 .308 rifles to negotiate the challenging four-day competition which consisted of fitness testing, ability to acquire targets, long-range and short-range shooting skills, ability to disappear from the enemy, and attention to detail. An additional aerial event assessed the snipers’ ability to fire from a UH-60 Black Hawk.

Lanxang is an up and coming small rifle manufacturer in Georgia. While this is the first time a Lanxang Tactical rifle has taken the top prize at the Army’s International Sniper Competition, their use in competitions is nothing new.
