POTD: Victrix Armaments Pugio V

You’re watching and reading TFB’s Photo Of The Day. It’s very unusual to see such a short sniper rifle as this Victrix Armaments Pugio V. The caliber is .308 Win and the barrel length is only 16″. Pugio seems to mean a dagger, especially the kind used by the Ancient Romans, which makes sense with regard to the compact size.

Here’s the caption:

Here are two alternative colors, from Victrix’s website, and some additional information:
