M24 SNIPER WEAPONS SYSTEM (U.S.A.) - The M24 (SWS) is the military and police version of the Remington 700 rifle, M24 being the model name assigned by the U.S. Army after adoption as their standard sniper rifle in 1988. The M24 is referred to as a "weapons system" because it consists of not only a rifle, but also a detachable telescopic sight and other accessories.
The M24 SWS has the "long-action" bolt version of the Remington 700 receiver but is chambered for the 7.62Ã—51mm NATO "short-action" cartridge. The "long-action" allows the rifle to be re-configured for a dimensionally larger cartridge.
