Back in 2016, the Army announced the adoption of the M11A1 CSASS. That’s military acronym-speak for the compact semi-automatic sniper system. The CSASS rifles are made by Heckler & Koch. Riflemen who are issued the M11A1 have to carry it around in something and that something is a case made by Georgia-based Armageddon Gear, who’s also making suppressor covers for the rifles.
Here’s Armageddon Gear’s press release . . .
The Army began receiving deliveries of the M110A1 Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System in 2020. This updated platform is lighter in weight, more compact, and more versatile than the previous-generation M110 rifles. Manufactured in Germany, the rifles will then be kitted with optics and accessories by HK-USA at their Columbus, Georgia facility.
Armageddon Gear will deliver approximately 6,300 units of their SASS rifle case (available for purchase at www.armageddongear.com), the CSASS suppressor mirage cover, based on the highly successful Armageddon Gear Hi-Temp Suppressor Cover, and an accessory pouch that can hold cleaning supplies, batteries, laser rangefinders, anemometers, or other accessories.
“These deliveries reflect Armageddon Gear’s commitment to military readiness and continue our tradition of supporting every recent fielding of precision rifle systems by the US Military. We’ve been selected to supply the soft goods for programs such as the M2010, SASS, PSR, ASR, CSASS and others. This support of military programs is a core part of Armageddon Gear and we’re proud to partner with Hecker & Koch on the CSASS program.” said Tom Fuller, Armageddon Gear CEO.
