    so im late to the game as usual and just found a post or two on the XM3 sniper rifle
    this got me thinking can anyone give a comprehensive list of US Military sniper systems? i can think of a handfull but cant make a full list

    the ones i know of are the
    USMC M40
    Army M24
    The M21 (unsure of branches using these)
    US Navy MK11
    Army M110
    and i know Mr Hathcock used a Winchester Model 70 in 30-06 unsure of designation
    the Cheytac M200 Intervention (unsure if ever used)
    and the mother of all thats holy the Barrett M82A1/M107 .50BMG

    anyone know a more complete list?

    how about around the world?

    and no im not trolling im honestly curious lol

    Well I have plenty of guns, ammo, and experience throughout my family. Any type of threat wouldn't choose my place to start with if they new what was good for them, but zombies? hahaha Thats funny. As for the freeway display, that person got fired, or somebody really messed up.

    You also got to include "sniper rifles" from the American Revolutionary War.

    right now, no US units are officially issued any .338 rifle or any Chey-Tac.

    On the Navy side, you've missed

    MK12
    MK13
    MK15

    The Barret really isn't accurate enough to be used as a sniper rifle as far as I'm concerned. How much it is crippled by being relegated to machine gun ammo, I don't know, but the MK15 (a bolt gun) is markedly more accurate.

    thanks owen

    that brings up a good point i guess we can include trial guns and experimental models like the M24A3 (.338 Lapua Magnum) and the CheyTac .408
