The tri-pod in the front doesn't make much sense. Unless that is another gun in the background. Can't really tell. Also, I've seen potato cannons that big. It's might be a home made devise for tossing small IEDs or grenades.

I agree with Raptorboy. That's a single post mount, and I really doubt whatever it is makes ISIL more dangerous than they were before they got it.

I dunno, but it looks like he buys his terrorist wardrobe at walmart.

"Oh yes, the camo pants and this winter hat and the 2 tone GV sweater... i gotta have that for my look..."

Looks like he already sent one through the wall to the far right...

Looks like they hired MacGuyver or the ATeam as their weapons designer... Take some stuff in the garage... slap it together... :D :D :D

It is more like a single barreled 23mm Soviet designed antiaircraft gun.

There are 2 different 23mm calibers, the older WW2 vintage 23x152 used by the Soviet "Flying tanks" tank busters, and the later 23x115 antiaircraft round, also used to great effect in air to air combat. This is likely the 23x115 round.

The article calls it a "sniper rifle". Strange choice of sights for a "sniper rifle".

That front tripod didn't look like it was attached to the gun and appeared to have a LMG mount on top of it.:bs:

I'm with the others, this appears to be some kind of single shot antitank gun shooting a light cannon round. If it was being used in a sniping mode, you'd need optics to actually take advantage of its' range advantage.

I think it's a modulated-pulse, immolator-driven coil activated javelin gun.

The history of this weapon goes back to a garage in Detroit around 1902. Cyrus Evelnutter was experimenting with a winch-jack when the coil let go and fired a tire iron through the brick wall and into a fruit stand out in the street. It was quite a mess -- but anyway ... uh - where was I?

I didn't know that Minolta made accessories for rifles...

If it was Canon, then that would be different.
