Remington makes M24 available to soldiers – Army News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq – Army Times

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.

  1. One of my students (the infantryman), is working very hard to convince his wife to release the necessary funds to aquire one of these.

    1. I hope he succeeds.

      Personally, I’d spend that kind of money on a Springfield Armory M1A. I’m just not a good enough shot to justify owning an M24.
