MK22 Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR)
Provides snipers with precision anti-personnel and anti-materiel engagements out to 1500m.
The Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) is a COTS/NDI multi-caliber (7.62mm, .300 & .338), bolt-action sniper rifle effective against personnel and materiel at extreme (1500m) ranges to increase standoff and overmatch against a world-wide proliferation of extreme distance sniper systems. The PSR will replace the Army’s existing M2010 and M107 sniper rifles.
The system includes two (2) new rounds of ammunition: XM1162 .338 Norma Magnum (NM) Armor Piercing (AP) (DODIC: AC32) and XM1163 .300 Norma Magnum (NM) Ball (DODIC: AC33). The ammunition was developed by the Combat Capabilities Development Command - Armaments Center (CCDC-AC) at Picatinny Arsenal by optimizing use of commercial components resulting in a Government Technical Data Package (TDP). The system includes a field replaceable modular, multi-barrel design tailored to training and different Mission, Enemy, Terrain and Weather, Troops and Support Available, Time Available, Civil Considerations (METT-TC), providing greater operational availability (Ao) and overall reduced sustainment costs.
Other major components include detachable 10-round box magazines, variable-power day optic sight, a hard carrying case for storage/transportation and protection, and a soft case for tactical operations. There are also a bipod, detachable sling, extra magazines, cleaning/maintenance equipment, spare parts, and manuals. This is JOINT service effort linked to SOCOM’s MK22 Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR).
