The new Mk13 Mod 7 long range sniper rifle has reached full operational capability with the US Marine Corps.

The bolt-action, precision-firing rifle will bring increased lethality at longer ranges compared to the legacy M40A6 it is partially replacing. Other advantages include the ability to deliver larger bullets and additional velocity to keep the bullet stable over longer distances.

The rifle includes the M571, an enhanced day optic that provides greater magnification range and an improved reticle, giving users the ability to identify targets at greater distances.

The marines will primarily use the Mk13 during deployments, while the M40A6 will serve as a training rifle for snipers.
