H&K confirms: This is the Army’s new and improved sniper rifle

Heckler & Koch has confirmed that a modified version of its G28 rifle has won the Army’s Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System contract.

The gun will replace the M110 made by Knight’s Armament as a culmination of the Army’s desire for a shorter, lighter rifle that didn’t sacrifice accuracy or performance. A press release from Heckler & Koch said the G28 is a light-weight variant of the 7.62 mm gas-powered G28 in use by the German Army, adjusted to fit the U.S. Army’s requirements.
