The Remington Semi Automatic Sniper System, or RSASS, is a semi-automatic sniper rifle manufactured by Remington Arms.
Design and featuresEdit
The RSASS was designed by Remington with help from JP Enterprises Company. The rifle is built with JP-made components including such aside-cocking receiver and trigger group but is sold and supported by Remington. Remington offers the R11 RSASS rifle as a complete package, with a Leupold telescopic sight, a quick-detachable suppressor, a Harris bipod and a carrying case. The stated accuracy for the RSASS is Sub-MOA, with an effective range of up to 1,100 yd (1,000 m).
The rifle is based on the Stoner AR-10 system adapted to .308 caliber cartridges, with adjustable direct gas impingement operation and rotary bolt locking. The receiver is designed with a folding cocking handle located on the left side, which facilitates more comfortable operation from prone position. The barrel is made from stainless steel for maximum accuracy is fitted with a flash hider (when a suppressor is not used). Additional features include a fully adjustable Magpul stock and a flat-top style upper receiver with integral Picatinny rail. The rifle is fed using SR-25/M119 .308/7.62 magazines with 19- or 20-round capacities.
The primary market for the RSASS is law enforcement and military as a designated marksman/sniper rifle. As of January 2013, the rifle is only available for Military/LEOs and not for civilian sales.
