The Accuracy International Precision Marksman, better known under its British military designation, L96A1, is a bolt-action sniper rifle created by the British company Accuracy International. It is the origin of the better known Accuracy International Arctic Warfare rifle series.


The British Army began its search for a replacement of the L42 around the 1980s. Accuracy International beat out its competitor, Parker-Hale, with its Precision Marksman.

Later, the Swedish began their own search for a durable heavy sniper rifle. Accuracy International made some improvements on the Precision Marksman design, creating the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare.

Usage of the L96A1 was eventually replaced by the .338 Lapua Calibre L115A3.
