Knight's Armament Company ( KAC ) History
Knight's Armament Company ( KAC ) is proud to be the privileged provider of the U.S. Military's main Semi-Automatic Sniper Platform. As early as the 1990s, the Nave SEALS adopted a modified version of the KAC SR-25 rifle, incorporating specific modifications based on military personnel feedback. This rifle, designated the SR-25, quickly became the favorite among special operation groups who required the stopping power of the larger .308 caliber, while retaining rapid-firing capability and portability of the smaller, M16 rifle variants. It's proven accuracy, combat effectiveness, and rugged durability later resulted in a much wider adaptation by the U.S. Marine Corps.
The legacy of the KAC SR-25 doesn't stop there. As a direct result of it's tremendous success within the Special Operation Groups, on September 2005, the Knight's Armament Company rifle won an Army competition and was selected to be the M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System. In April 2008, U.S. Army Soldiers from Task Force Fury in Afghanistan were the first in a combat zone to receive the M110.
The SR-25 and M110 are based loosely on the original AR-10 developed by Eugene Stoner, but feature additional refinements instituted by KAC to maximize parts compatibility with the AR-15 design, improve weapon reliability, and increased accuracy. As this high-caliber, multi-shot capable sniping system is a hallmark product from Knight's Armament Company.
