The M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System is intended to replace the M24 Sniper Weapon System. The M110 is a precision 7.62x51mm NATO caliber, gas-operated rifle that is highly acclaimed for its battlefield performance in the hands of U.S. special forces since the early stage of the Iraqi war. The rifle accuracy, quick-change 20-round magazine, ambidextrous controls, abundant MIL-STD-1913 rail mounting capabilities, and a two-stage match trigger make it highly appreciated by its users.
