DESCRIPTION:

The M107 Semi-Automatic Long-Range Sniper Rifle fires .50 Caliber ammunition and is capable of delivering precise, rapid fire on targets out to 2,000 meters, greatly exceeding the terminal effect capability of other sniper rifles in use by U.S. forces. Its primary mission is to engage and defeat materiel targets at extended ranges.

The M2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle is a bolt-action, magazine-fed weapon system that utilizes .300 WinMag ammunition. The rifle is built around a rechambered M24 Sniper Weapon System receiver. The M2010 is equipped with a fully adjustable, right-folding chassis system featuring accessory cable routing channels and Military-Standard 1913 Picatinny rails that mount a Leupold 6-20 x 50 mm variable power Day Optic Scope with advanced scalable H-58 ranging and targeting reticle. The M2010 is also equipped with a sound suppressor and adjustable bipod. The shooter interface can be tailored to accommodate a wide range of shooter preferences and its folding stock provides Soldiers flexibility in transporting the weapon during operations.

The M110 7.62 mm Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS) is an anti-personnel and light materiel weapon that fires 7.62 mm ammunition out to a maximum effective range of 800 meters. The M110’s Leupold Mark IV 3.5–10x scope provides both a wide field of view at low magnification for close-in engagements and a narrow field of view for precision long shots at high magnification. The SASS leverages a rapid fire and rapid reload design, variable-power day optic sight, and 10- or 20-round detachable magazines.

BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER

The M107 completes missions that cannot be accomplished with current sniper rifles. The ability to engage both personnel and light skinned vehicles at range provides Soldiers a tremendous tactical advantage. It is especially valuable during military operations in urban terrain where greater firepower and standoff ranges provide counter-sniper capability while enhancing sniper survivability. The M2010 exceeds the rate of fire and lethality of the M24, the previous medium-caliber sniper rifle with a 50 percent increase in range. It bridges the capability gap between the M110 and the M107, allowing precision engagements in daylight and limited visibility, using a clip-on sniper night sight, out to 1,200 meters. The M110 SASS provides the capability for rapid and focused engagements on several targets with multiple follow-on shots. It is the first Army weapon system that integrates a quick attach and detach suppressor to reduce the weapon’s firing signature. The M110 provides the warfighter with increased lethality, situational awareness from an enhanced scope, and survivability from the flash and sound suppressor.
