Many soldiers have drooled at the idea of spending a day behind the M24 sniper rifle. Now you have a chance to own one.
Manufacturer Remington made a unique deal with the Army that will make nearly 2,000 M24s available for purchase.
As the Army upgrades 2,500 M24 sniper rifle chassis to XM2010s, replaced parts are normally destroyed. In return for a reduced price on its XM2010, the Army is letting Remington use those operational parts to build a complete M24 system, said Trevor Shaw, Remington spokesman.
