I found this on FOX News this afternoon.

Does anyone know what type of rifle this is (picture in the center)?

Thanks

Looks like a M-21 or M-24 SWS to me. Sorry - not up on the the differences between the two.

the stock doesn't look correct for the USMC M40A3...

maybe the A1:

Looks like an M40a1 with a Sub Minute Solutions stock. Scope appears to a Unertl but could be a MK4 with M3 turrets

M21 is a modified M14; it's not one of those. As others have stated, it's either an M40 variant (if they're US Marines) or an M24 variant (if they're US Army).
