The Sniper Rifle is a weapon in the Sniper Rifles class featured in Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes.

The design of the Sniper Rifle in GTA IV is based on a real life M40A1.

This weapon also appears in Grand Theft Auto VI, Grand Theft Auto V, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City and Grand Theft Auto III.

How to get the Sniper Rifle in GTA IV:

In GTA IV, the Sniper Rifle can be purchased from Underground Gun Shops for a price of $6,000.

It becomes available after completing the mission Luck of the Irish in Story Mode.

The Sniper Rifle can also be found and picked up around the map (see the spawn locations in the "Appearances" section below).

Sniper Rifle Description:

The M40A1 started its life as a Remington 700, and was then customized by the US Marine Corps to fit their sniping needs. Strangely enough, the one in the game appears to have been further customized to use an external 10 round magazine, yet it only holds 5.
