During the Iraq War the Marines urgently ordered 180 of the Mk11 Mod 0 Sniper Weapon System’s, but with the Army M110 Rifle Upper Receiver. This Mk11 / M110 hybrid was known as the Mk11 Mod 1. Later, the Marines began ordering the Mk11 Mod 2, a SOCOM / Navy developed variant of the SR-25 that is very similar to the M110.
Knight’s Armament are now selling the last 50 of the Mk11 Mod 1 rifles that will ever be produced to civilians.
The suggested retail price … $8508! Most of these 50 rifles are already spoken for with only a few left for sale. It is more than I would spend on a rifle of this class, but I suppose it is also a piece of military history.
Big thanks to Jesse for sending me the info.Related
