This is the second version without the mechanical bolt. Maybe can be used for bolt action rifles.

Made this is ableton live, it is multilayered with the top end of a 9mm and the low end of an. Another carbine sound is faded in after the transients to give more sustain. Two reverbs fade in and out creating a smooth transition and blend. A little white noise is added for subtle sheen and air.

All the layers were grouped together into a single band compressor and ran through serum fx distortion and then into a krush distortion plugin for added fatness. A blending reverb was used to glue the sounds into the same space and ran into a final transient designer which is adding a little more snap and punch and clipping the excess transients off.

    A very nice sound, like a sniper rifle in a valley, or with lots of hills around.
    The crackle is fantastic, gives it that WWII kinda feel, but it also just feels all encompassing do to the wide, deep stereo field.
    I wish the wind and debris sounds hadn't been included, as it takes away from it for me, it's easy to focus on that hiss rather than the sound it's self, but I realize that it could be part of the original recording you used as a building block for the rest, and would be difficult or impossible to remove without compromising the quality.
    Thankfully, it's easy for most people to ignore, and the general punchy awesomeness of the gunshot is too much of a distraction. :-)
    Truly an impressive and high quality piece of work, thank you so much for sharing it with us!
