Finisher certificates for the 2017 MCM and MCM10K are now available.Runners may download and print the certificate in celebration of this monumental accomplishment, either by clicking the “other results” tab above or the appropriate button.While the Crane engineers felt the XM25 met some of the Navy’s requirements, it was determined that further development of the system would be required.In addition there was some concern regarding the build procedures or “producibility” of this rifle, and the utilization of proprietary parts.(Source: Mitch Matieko/online picture) Brookfield Precision Tool fabricated approximately 250 of the unique XM25 stock liners for the U. According to researchers such as Peter Senich, who interviewed U. Army Special Forces personnel in the early 1990s for his book, The Long-Range War, the Army’s XM25/M25 sniper rifles were considered to be a ‘transitional’ or ‘interim’ platform. M25 designations, there is unfortunately very little information other than a brief reference in Lee Emerson’s excellent book, M14 Rifle History and Development, Vol 1.
Other BPT parts included a titanium coated (Ti) gas piston, and a BPT one piece NM spring guide. Depending on specific mission requirements, a special BPT adapter was also used to accommodate the AN/PVS-4 night scope, and some missions may have utilized the REM-7 laser pointer.Anyhow, I hope others find this informative and perhaps interesting too...enjoy. Original XM21 rifle with AR TEL scope, circa 1972 (Source: The Long-Range War, Peter Senich, 1994) After extensive testing of competing platforms, in 1988 the Army formally adopted the bolt-action Remington M24 Sniper Weapon System (SWS) to replace the M21 as its official sniper rifle. Indeed, during the same time period in the mid-to-late 1980s when the M24 SWS was being evaluated and ultimately adopted, the U. The rationale for the Army Special Forces and Naval Special Warfare units was presumably similar, as noted in a Naval Operational Requirement document from the late 1980s: “The weapon must be capable of quickly and accurately engaging multiple targets at extended ranges during day and night operations.” While the Army, Navy and Marines continued to use two-man sniper teams with one operator carrying a traditional bolt-action sniper rifle, it was felt that arming the second team member or ‘spotter’ with a semi-automatic M14 rifle would be advantageous in meeting certain mission and operational conditions.Original M24 SWS with deployment kit as adopted circa 1988 (online picture) Despite the formal adoption of bolt-action sniper rifles by the USMC (M40 variants) and the U. Army (M24), there continued to be a small scale, evolutionary development of various M14 sniper rifles by special operations units, most notably the U. In addition the Navy also noted “long term cost savings to the government” as part of the rationale for developing a sniper rifle based on the M14 platform. Army, an innovative bedding system was also developed for the XM25 rifle that effectively eliminated the issue of ‘bedding break down’ and its adverse impact on rifle accuracy over time. Army deployed the M21A5, also known as the M14SE ‘Crazy Horse’ rifle, which ironically reverted back to an original USGI fiberglass stock that did not employ any glass or epoxy-bedding. Devens, MA developed a ‘Product Improved’ sniper rifle that was designated as an XM25 (1988) or M25 (1991) for SF-specific M14 sniper rifles.If for any reason you’re not satisfied with your Mc Millan fiberglass stock, return it within 30 days in good condition for a full refund of the stock’s purchase price or exchange. within the The M14 forums, part of the M14 M1A Forum category; For anyone interested, this summer I did some research/outreach re some of the "post M21" type sniper and DMR rifles used by the U. (I am in the process of building a couple of replicas of the Navy M14 snipers and an XM25 too, so I gathered some info along the way that I thought I would share with other enthusiasts). Army’s M21 sniper rifles with Vietnam War era AR TEL scopes or the later ART II scopes were beginning to show their age, and given that the M14 platform had been out of production for over 20 years at this point, U. Army leadership began searching for a new sniper rifle system. Navy Special Warfare units, followed by the Marine Corps RTE/PWS precision weapon armors. Devens, MA, in conjunction with interest by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) at Crane, IN, both sought to develop a ‘Product Improved’ version of the semi-automatic M21 sniper rifle.
