Equipment Piece of the Week: M107 Semi-Automatic Long Range Sniper Rifle (LRSR)

M107 Semi-Automatic Long Range Sniper Rifle (LRSR)The M107 Semi-Automatic Long Range Sniper Rifle (LRSR) fires .50 caliber ammunition. It is capable of delivering precise, rapid fire on targets out to 2,000 meters. This greatly exceeds the terminal effect capability of the XM2010, M110 or M24 sniper rifles. 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 rifle is a commercial off-the-shelf weapon that incorporates a dual-chamber detachable muzzle brake, dual barrel springs, and long mainspring design to reduce weapon recoil. It leverages a variable power day optic sight and a 10-round detachable box magazine. It weighs 35 pounds (combat ready) and includes folding front and rear sights, fluted match-grade barrel, detachable carrying handle, rubber recoil pad, rear grips, and a MIL-STD 1913 rail. The Mk211-Mod0 (A606), Caliber .50, Multipurpose Cartridge is the preferred tactical ammunition against anti-materiel targets. It is employed by all U.S. military services as well as 60 additional armies around the world.

Accessories include a Leupold variable power 4.5-14x50mm day optic site, hard and soft cases, detachable folding bipod, detachable sling, extra 10-round magazines, cleaning/maintenance equipment, and manuals.
