Tactical73 introduces its new “T73 family” of rifles and pistol caliber carbines. Headquartered in the small Italian town of Venaria Reale, at the outskirts of Turin, the Tactical73 S.r.l. Company is known to shooters as an importer and distributor of firearms and accessories manufactured by several highly regarded American brands, including PWS, Strike Industries, Masterpiece Arms, Lucid, Arredondo, and many more. But it has also established itself as a reference point for professionals and civilian modern sporting rifle shooters − particularly AR-15 owners − both in Italy and in the rest of Europe.
In 2015 the Company launched its first own, custom rifle, a bolt-action tactical model dubbed the TUS Mod.1 ("Tactical Urban Sniper") and conceived both for long-range target sports shooters and to suit the needs of military and Police operators that may be called in to respond to critical situations in urban environments.
The newly introduced T73 family is composed by the T73-MOD 1 EVO and the T73 - MOD. COMPETITION rifles, and by the 9 mm T73 - MOD. TAC 9 (available in the standard upper or side charging handle versions).
