Heckler & Koch to Produce U.S. Army's New Sniper Rifle

Heckler & Koch will produce a modified version of its G28 rifle as the U.S. Army's new compact sniper rifle. HK recently announced it was awarded the contract worth up to $44.5 million for the rifles, which will be a lightweight variant of the proven 7.62 mm G28 rifle currently in use by the German Army. The Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) will provide the service with a small, lightweight, highly accurate firearm, addressing a critical need to replace older and heavier rifles currently in use.

“This award represents another significant achievement for Heckler& Koch,” said president of Heckler & Koch USA Wayne Weber. “The HK CSASS rifle is a substantial upgrade over the Army's current sniper rifles, enhancing accuracy and reliability while providing for a handier, more compact arm.”

Heckler & Koch will also provide spare parts, support and training to the Army.
