Ever since the modern battlefield moved from the open fields of Europe to the rooftops of the middle east, the military has been re-examining their equipment and tuning it to operate in those very different environments. The XM2010 rifle is cool, but the massive bulk of the gun makes it very hard to move around discretely. Enter Remington’s new CSR, a concealable sniper rifle for those who need to be stealthy but still want the ability to reach out and touch targets at long range . . . Remington currently holds the contract to produce the Army and Marine Corps precision sniper rifles, and in order to meet the requirements of the 8 lb. 7.62 CSR they sliced the barrel and handguard length and tweaked a couple other specs. The XM2010 already included a quick-change capability for the barrels in one of its incarnations, so adapting the gun to this purpose was a breeze. The barrel on this version isn’t manufactured by Remington — right now they’re focusing on their 14″ version for the military and law enforcement markets. But they say a 16″ civilian version will be available to the public at some point. Then again, they also said that the XM2010 chassis would be available for the civilian market. Three years ago.
