Army Approves The M107 Long-Range Sniper Rifle

Recommended Posts

This happened back in march and I just came across it now. I don't think it's been posted before since I did do a search and nothing came up.

Army News: Army approves full fielding of M-107 sniper rifle

Tech Specs.

Another good link: Military.com: THE GRIM REAPERÔÇÖS ARM JUST GOT LONGER: The M107 Long-Range Sniper Rifle

The author mentions a clip but in the tech specs it states that it's a magazine.

Edit: I fixed the first link

I see some minor differences now. I saw a show on the history channel that spotlighted the M82A1 and I thought, Wow! What a weapon!

Tactically, the importance of anti-sniper weapons like this (weapons that allow you to kill enemy snipers without being in range of THEIR rifles) cannot be overstated.

Yup, slight differences. The big difference is the range.

The M82A1 has an 1800 meter maximum range whereas the M-107 has 2,000 yd (1,829 m) Maximum Effective Range and 7,450 yd (6,812 m) Maximum Range.
