Image 2 of 20

The M110C is the latest version of the Knight M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS) and is the U.S. Army’s latest medium-caliber sniper rifle. There are also reports that the U.S. Marine Corps will soon adopt the weapon. The M110C is lighter than the original version, but maintains Knight’s legendary reliability and accuracy. The 7.62mm SASS delivers a new level of long-range precision rapid fire that enables execution of operational missions not possible using manually operated weapon systems. High-capacity, quick-change magazines enable ammo selection optimization in both the suppressed and unsuppressed firing modes. The semi-automatic M110 has increased sniper rates of fire, as well as precision and lethality levels appropriate for use against personnel and light-material targets, especially in target-rich environments requiring multiple follow-up shots. The SASS is also the first U.S. Army weapon system that integrates an optimized quick attach/detach sound suppressor to aid with warfighter survivability by reducing weapon firing signature. Chambered for 7.62 NATO, the M110C weighs in at 16 pounds. It has a barrel length of 20 inches and an overall length of 47¼ inches.
