Developed in the late 1980s by BMS Trading Ltd. of London, the original Milcam rifle was designed as a cheap and simple 5.56mm rifle to appeal to purchasers with limited means or a preference for manually operated rifles. The Milcam rifle fed from any STANAG (M16 pattern) magazine, was compatible with M16 bayonets and had a muzzle capable of launching standard rifle grenades. The bolt action operation of this rifle was very fast, requiring a locking turn of only 22ยบ, due to the cammed locking system of the rifle from which it draws its name. Several different variants were designed and produced (see discussion page for complete list) however the most successful was the BMS Snicam, which is highly sought after by varmint hunters in the UK due to the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988 banning semi automatic rifles over .22LR calibre. The Snicam also saw some limited use with police forces, along with limited use and testing by the British Army as a patrol sharpshooter weapon.
