The M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS) is the Army’s medium caliber sniper rifle that supplements the sniper’s role to support combat operations with greater firepower and versatility. The 7.62mm SASS brings a semi-automatic capability to sniper teams and is particularly effective in urban areas where there are multiple targets and frequent close-combat situations. The M110 comes with a suppressor and incorporates a 3.5-10x scope with illuminated mil-reticle. It also comes with a M151 Enhanced Spotting Scope.
The M151 Enhanced Spotting Scope allows recognition and identification of targets at long distances. With powerful and bright optics, the spotting scope has 12-40x magnification with a 60mm objective lens diameter. The scope has a Leupold mil dot (round dot) reticle for both range estimation and tactical collaboration with the shooter. The scope is weatherproof and fog-proof.
