This medium sniper rifle, used by the USMC, including MARSOC, is an accurized and modified variant of the United States Marine Corps Designated Marksman Rifle, itself a medium sniper variant of the M14 rifle, which the EMR is set to replace throughout the Corps.
The M39 EMR has had a number of modifications made to the basic DMR design:
- a variable-length stock
- the addition of an ergonomic pistol grip
- a more durable Harris folding bi-pod
- MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail for the mounting of scopes, aiming devices etc
The M39 EMR bears a resemblence to the MK 14 Mod 0 EBR.
