Sniper 2 (2003)

Sniper 2 is the second feature in the Sniper film series. For the 2003 DTV sequel, Tom Berenger returns as Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Beckett, who is asked to come out of retirement by the NSA in order to take on a mission to eliminate a Serbian general responsible for genocide. For the mission, Beckett is partnered with a former Delta Force sniper who was on death row. The cast includes Bokeem Woodbine and Linden Ashby.

The following weapons were used in the film Sniper 2:



Swedish 1896 Mauser

Master Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) uses a sporterized Swedish Model 1896 Mauser rifle. The unique shape of the M1896 cocking piece can be seen at the rear of the bolt, and the bolt sleeve lacks the gas-deflecting flange of the later Model 98-pattern bolt.

Mosin-Nagant 91/30

A Soviet Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifle is found by Beckett in the underground weapons cache. He wrongly identifies the rifle as a "Mauser 7.92", likely referring to a Gewehr 98 of similar size. Although some confuse the two rifle designs, they are quite different. Beckett is also seen using it during the tank ambush.
