The M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System is to replace the M24 Sniper rifle used by snipers in the United States Army.
M110 is based off the original AR-10 developed by Eugene Stoner and redesigned by the rifles manufacturer Knight’s Armament Company.
From what i have read and the comparison of M110 SASS vs. the Panther LRT-SASS is that the M110 has a higher accuracy level to the Panther.
I had the opportunity last year to fire a Rem 700 in a .243 Win caliber round.
I like I feel of the gun and properly oiled and maintained it is a very accurate rifle and with wide variety of calibers this gun is made for, you can find the right gun for you.
left to right .22-.223-.243-.308
This Rifle comes in 28 different calibers and is made for public, police and miliary (m24) use.
Here is a chart on all the rounds this gun can fire.
The US Miliary just awarded a contract with Remington to build a new M24E1 A.K.A. XM2010 more info will come later.
But for now here is a taste of the new system!
XM2010 - M24E1
I have been looking at this rifle for some time now because I favor the larger 7.62 round over the standard AR platform 5.56 round.
