The LSW is similar to the L85 and has been in service since 1986.  It has a longer barrel, a bipod and shoulder strap fitted for greater range and accuray.  Many of the weapon's parts are interchangeable with the L85, including the same 30 round magazine.  The LSW is capable of producing a high rate of accurate rapid fire at ranges upto 800m.  The RAF Regt currently employs the LSW with specially trained Gunners in the Sharpshooter role.
