I´m searching for info on a Yugoslav sniper rifle named Elmech M994, has any one ever heard of it before?

Made during the 90s, made in caliber 300win mag and 308.

Any info would be appriciated :D
Im starting up a collection of European sniper rifles and have been offerd this rifle but seller cant tell me much about it.

Thank you.

I've never seen one just like that before...
What is the action derived from? Mauser? It's hard to tell from the pic, sorry.
It looks pretty cool though, buy it anyway and do the research later is what I say. The stock on that thing looks like it has the same little... "lump" that the m93 has, but I don't think that's an M93 predacessor. I'd need to know more, like the action type.
Good luck with that, and no worries, it took 18 months for me to know what I wanted in a Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle.

:eek: It dont think it looks like a M93..Here is a better pic of the bolt.


Very confusing, are there two Yugo rifles named M93? I I have found on Zastava that looks like a beefed up Mauser rifle and another M93 named "black eagle" in 50cal?

I have found nothing on this rifle...... :(

Well the standard 93 is a beefed up 98 mauser, while the .50 is... actually im not sure what the black eagle is.

Hm... I've googled every combo of "elmech" and "m994" there is, but I can't find anything on it.
If I were you I would ask all the other sniper forums (the Hide, etc). There's a lot of people that may know on places like that.

Sorry. Buy it anyway that's pretty sweet.

It's an Elmech EMM 992
The action inspired by Tikka M65 sporster, the cannon is a Sako.

Originally caliber is 7,62 x 51mm (308 NATO).

The French laws being very restrictive, this one is in 30-284 W.

Very nice Strummer. Interesting rifle. It's good to see that there is still at least one French man armed with a rifle.

really, we are much less numerous than you, but we fight for our rights
If the rights outlined in the American Consitution are "God given inalienable" rights then they extend to all men everywhere and it's good to hear we have French brothers willing to stand up for what is theirs.

Oh yeah, I want one of these rifles.

Regrettably, our constitution is very different! Most laws which govern weapons date 1939 just before the beginning of the WW2 and they are very restricting and obsolete.

The anit-federalists were heavily influenced by Baron de Montesquieu, the French writer and philospher. He had a huge influence on the form of the US Constitution and is thought to be the individual who was the second heaviest influence on the consitution behind Thomas Jefferson.

On the thought of the second amendment the patriot "Patrick Henry argued against ratification of the Constitution by Virginia, in part because the Constitution permitted a standing army and gave the federal government some control over the militia. Henry objected to the lack of any clause forbidding disarmament of individual citizens; "the great object is that every man be armed . . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun.""

If somebody looks for Elmech, I know a gunsmith in Switzerland who sells it (300Win.Mag)...

I can give a link towards his site.
