Tactical Imports GM6 LYNX

So you’ve bought the new FK 7.5 Field Pistol. Your 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS has been serviced. You still have $11,999 burning a hole in your pocket and don’t know how to spend it. The new-to-the-U.S. Tactical Imports GM6 Lynx is for you! The Hungarian-made, 25-pound, semi-automatic bullpup rifle is chambered in .50 BMG. How short is it? . . .

The GM6 Lynx is only 44.3” long even with its 28.7” barrel. “Due to the bullpup configuration, most of the weight is re-distributed to the rear of the rifle allowing for the possibility of off hand firing,” the company’s website kinda promises. “This is near impossible with most other .50 BMG rifles.”


Don’t forget to pick up a spare five-round magazine — for just $375 USD. The gun ships inside a proper Pelican case with cut inserts. So there is that.

The GM6 can be transported with the barrel and bolt locked to the rear which makes it even more compact. The barrel is released by pressing a button at the front of the barrel jacket. Careful! It will also load the rifle if a loaded magazine is inserted.

The company claims the long recoil system can achieve sub-MOA groups with its match grade Lothar Walther barrel. With .50 BMG, but likely not off hand.

Tactical Imports of Canada will now ship one to your FFL. Well, after a six-month special order wait. Check out their website here. Don’t have the full $11,999 on you? Don’t worry, they offer layaway. Seriously.

  1. It’s neat, but I take issue with this line:

    “Due to the bullpup configuration, most of the weight is re-distributed to the rear of the rifle allowing for the possibility of off hand firing,” the company’s website kinda promises. “This is near impossible with most other .50 BMG rifles.”

    Jerry Miculek did it at over 60.

  2. My only experience with .50 is Saint John The Brownings neat little belt fed device, the m2.

    Wouldn’t the bullpup, another design type I have no real experience with, put the muzzle and muzzle brake closer to your face? With a .50 bmg round?

    And, oh, yes. Eek! 12 grand! Are you fucking kidding me?

  3. Very ….. Brickish…

    Looks like they ran with a design from the 80’s

    $12k, not today, maybe with a little more design.

  4. “… sub-MOA groups with its match grade Lothar Walther barrel. With .50 BMG, but likely not off hand.”

    Sub-MOA groups not likely off hand, unless you’re Jerry Miculek. He would put all the bullets in the same hole.

    Yeah, that’s 230+ grains of powder cooking a few inches from your face. I think I’ll just sit back and watch someone else shoot it.

    • It should be alright- I haven’t heard of any concerns by the owners up here. Also, it must be a safe design for ordinary people, because it is non-restricted and therefore can be carried out in the wilderness. This is unlike the dangerous and deadly .22 short revolver, which is so dangerous and deadly that it can only be shot at a range in Canada, or with a coveted ATC.

    • You and I both.

      I’ve been on firing lines where multiple .50’s were being fired – eg, at the Fifty Cal group’s matches at the Washoe County range, north of Reno.

      The shock wave going through my guts standing well behind the firing line was enough to convince me that I’d like those muzzle brakes to be somewhere far ahead of me…

    • The comments about proximity to the chamber in bullpups is always amusing.

      What do you do with your current guns, fire them from the hip? Is the bolt not generally in line to (at least) take a good chunk of your face/skull? Do you really believe that if your chamber does frag, that somehow 2-4 extra inches is gonna really save you?

  5. I just checked out the Tactical Imports website, and I see good news- the Type 81s are back in stock. Unfortunately I don’t think they fall under sporting purposes, so they may be a bit harder to import for an American gun owner. On the other hand, you can just buy an AK, unlike us folks up north.

    • You do realize what a fully transferable auto-gun goes for these days, no?

      $12K isn’t currently available in my just-for-shits-and-giggles budget right now, but it really isn’t much in the realm of interesting rifles.

      Just sayin’…

  6. Why would anyone buy this over an M82 Barrett?

    I’m not much interested in a .50 BMG rifle, if I was, it would be one of those $1500 uppers that turn an AR in a single shot bolt action.

  7. Awesome! Just what someone needs to become a Crypto- Zoological Hunter! For the great unknown legends! Especially if your hunting Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monsters of the USA, The Rake, The NJ Devil —“which I believe is just an all encompassing term for Law Enforcement and Politicians within that area…” Swamp monsters, Dogman and Aliens! Perfect! Now what rounds would someone recommend for the safari ! lol !

  8. There were recent news stories about the manufacturer going under. Not Tactical Imports but I believe Sero. Last 2 weeks or so. I’ve been saving for this gun for some time and was disappointed to read that.

  9. Wow, price was 25000$ for these last I knew. Considering a Barret semi is about 10k$ the GM6 isn’t that bad (newer design, imported, possibly nicer)

  10. You laugh about this now. These things will be really popular when some idiot manages to clone dinosaurs and then lets them out.

  11. just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. just when you think nothing can be uglier than TTAG’s last new gun article, there’s another.
