Marines will replace another sniper rifle in their arsenal with a more compact version now being used by the Army. And the first deliveries are coming next month.

In its recent budget documents, the Marine Corps has asked to purchase 116 Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper Systems or CSASS.

The CSASS “will replace the M110 with enhanced shooter ergonomics and increased operational availability time,” according to the documents. “The lighter, more capable rifle will improve the sniper’s ability to rapidly engage multiple, moving targets.”

This comes at about the same time the Corps decided to replace its venerable and long-serving main sniper rifle the M40. The new main sniper rifle will be the Mk 13 Mod 7 sniper rifle, Capt. Christopher Harrison previously told Marine Corps Times.
