Remington awarded 79,7 million dollars contract

67
Remington has contracted 79,7 in millions of dollars with the USSOCOM Special Operations Command to supply 5150 Modular Sniper Rifles (MSR) for 10 years. The agreement also implies the delivery of millions of ammunition 4,6.




MSR is a new modern modular sniper rifle with a freely swinging barrel capable of adapting to various combat missions.

Replaceable stainless steel barrels and box magazines allow the rifle to use .338 Lapua Magnum, .338 Norma, 300 Winchester Magnum and proven .308 Winchester cartridges with equal efficiency.

“We are proud to provide our military with high-tech products,” said George Collitides, chief executive officer of Freedom Group & Remington Arms, in a press release. “This is a recognition of Remington's quality and centuries of experience. This contract represents not only a new era of high precision sniper rifles, but also demonstrates that the American company is capable of producing and supplying the best weapon in its class for our troops defending freedom around the world. "

"Our military and special forces are the first line of defense of the country," added John Day, general manager and president of Remington. “They deserve the highest quality and the latest technology. Every element of the MSR was designed with that in mind. ”

MSR was specifically created to compete in the US Special Operations Command for a sniper rifle and is reportedly capable of providing accuracy in 0.7 MOA at a distance of 1000 yards (914 meters) using .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges.

Remington offers MSR rifle in several versions. Special Forces will receive a rifle with sets for conversion to various calibers with quick-release mufflers and muzzle compensators. The rifle will be equipped with a forearm with integrated fastening straps and an adjustable butt foldable in the side. In the basic version, an unloaded rifle weighs 5,89 kg and 7,71 kg in curb with various accessories.

Comply with the terms of the contract Remington will be in cooperation with two other enterprises of the Freedom Group. Barnes Bullets will produce ammunition, and AAC will produce silencers and muzzle compensators.

      The most important thing is to shoot the same way. And knowing Amerov, their appearance is always deceiving))). They have a beautiful M4 and Aircraft and Hamera. Only now all this shoots, flies and rides badly ...

          Regarding the patriotism ury, that would not be blamed for this anymore, I will say this ..... We are before Amer even before China. And soon we will lag behind China at such a pace.

            What are you serving in Afghanistan? Do you personally inspect Americans about how they shoot and ride? Have you heard tales about how amers throw M16 (M4) and take Kalash? Especially about Vietnam there are a lot of such tales, and it was just in Vietnam that only a complete stupid person could do this, since in the jungle the shooting was often conducted to the sound, that is, it was easy to get a bullet from your own people starting to shoot from a Kalash. Ammunition for captured weapons by the way where to get it? M16 in various versions is operated by more than 80 countries of the world, do you think it would be as bad as they say, would it become so popular?

          It’s necessary to think. In the USA there are a lot of private companies and shops where you can sell almost any small arms. And they will upgrade according to your wishes. And no matter how marvelous the order is made. Any whim for your money. It turns out in the United States the goddess is the cult of the golden calf and the weapon cult .

      Yeah, they defend freedom, they defend freedom in Syria, they defend it in Iraq, Afghanistan is in doubt, the defenders are bad.
      And the rifle is certainly decent, a lot of plastic and super-realism, but I think this does not affect the quality of fire! Therefore, the norms of a rifle are what you need to protect "freedom".

      If you distract from politics:
      I wouldn’t drag such a thing. Big one. Gentle optics - you are probably aware that this is not very healthy. To clean it after any marches - mother, give me birth back! Again, adjusting the sights is not for the faint of heart, even many specialists do not get tortured with this, but they fuse all techies: you’re smart, you and ... fuck. Well, and electronics, which, if present, is good in certain conditions, I personally prefer something simpler.

        Well, in my amateurish view, the helicopter (tiltrotor) quickly flew in, dropped the snipers. We shot the snipers, set targets for aviation, artillery. We saw how the targets were hit. We went to the point, quickly flew away. At the base they removed the "wear-related" rifle parts gunsmiths for maintenance, they received new ones in return. Or they simply handed over rifles for maintenance, in exchange they received new ones (past maintenance). Who knows how the special forces are served in the US Army, tell us. It will be interesting to listen to.

          The trusses of ORSIS are made by American technology from their steels on their machines let it be known to you !!!!!

          Let it be known to YOU ​​that the technologies for the production of trunks are the same everywhere, differ only slightly, and there is no American way and does not exist, there is a generally accepted process. Are the cuts everywhere the same, or are the Americans twisting them in the opposite direction? All the salt in the equipment, the better it is, the closer the work to GOST, that's all the differences. Equipment for the word from ORSYS is not the newest. The task of the manufacturer is to make the parts for the weapon as accurate as possible, the mechanics of rifles with the longitudinal slide are the same everywhere, everything differs slightly. This is about technology.
          As for steel, Orsis buys American blanks for the simple reason that they are CHEAPER than ours when purchased in small batches, and not because they are somehow better.
          Machines really foreign.
          The result is no need to overestimate the ability of the American arms manufacturer. Their advantage is only in machine tools. If we consider Remington specifically, then there is no advantage over our rifles that are in service with ergonomics, quality, optics, cartridge, in mechanics. They have excellent rifles, but they don’t have to sing their praises, which is not something extraordinary and breakthrough.

    For those who do not know about modularity.
    After each change of the barrel will have to shoot a new rifle. No one will do this. Everything is much simpler - they will order vintars with different trunks, but each with one trunk.
    In my opinion, this whole gimp with different trunks is designed to further promote this model on the civilian market outside the United States. Because Replicas of army snipers are prohibited for U.S. citizens.

    Sorry for being rude, but listening to moans and simple sobs is tired - our Kalashnikov has always been the best in the world and remains the same, and as for all this "f * ck", it is not a weapon from a "fantasy film" that will help a fighter survive on the battlefield, and the art of using it. We can fight and win even without these "guns"! Once again I will note that there is no need to praise other people's "guns" - there is little sense from this, but it is necessary to create our own - accessible to everyone: from private to general. Stop looking and selling prototypes abroad! We need to supply and provide the army with everything it needs! We must prepare fighters, not cannon fodder!

      It was an attempt to get in touch with reality as it is. Not to pay for ignorance and patriotic dogmas with your own blood is the level of a real pro. He has little hope when he comes into contact with a real enemy. and the answer.

      do you call with hats? or drekoley? a sniper is needed and the corresponding weapon is the same
      and modularity, that modularity, we also have such rifles, everything is not indisputable, helps to choose the option for each type of "work" but also complicates the weapon, although blazers have been used for 20 years as hunters all over the world

      Exactly ... I would like to note that in the Second World War, what we have, that the Germans, the main sniper rifles were bolts that had been in service for 40-50 years - Mosin 1891 and Mauser k98 ... "Obsolescence" in combat qualities is not it really affected ...

    Everything is beautiful. But take any Russian weapons, so there are no keys, no screws or bolts. And in battle, losing them is very easy. Time will tell.

      In battle, you can lose the ax and break the sledgehammer on the opponent’s head ...

    Nah, you won’t go to battle with such a toy. More like an advertisement. Maybe the truth behind life, but crawled with her through the mud and shoot exactly at 910 meters. You will scrub the sight for half an hour. Not impressed. She lacks beauty, which is inherent in any reliable weapon.

    Great rifle for shooting at a shooting range. Well, or Papuan from the Hamera to shoot. Not suitable for war.
