M24 Sniper Weapon System

The M24 Sniper Weapon System (SWS) is a bolt-action rifle in use by the US Army, including the Special Forces, Rangers and Delta Force. US Air Force advanced designated marksmen also employ the M24.

Like the M40A3 used by the USMC, the M24 is based around the design of the Remington model 700 (700 long action). Unlike the M40A3, which is only chambered in 7.62mmx51mm NATO, variants of the M24 are also chambered in 338 Lapua Magnum.
