Madison, NC -(Ammoland.com)- The Department of Defense issued an order to Remington Defense for 443 Precision Sniper Rifles (“PSR”) chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum and 446 PSR caliber conversion kits in both .300 Win Mag and .308 Win.
The order was placed under the competitively awarded PSR Systems contract. Remington Defense serves as the system integrator for the PSR, which is a durable sniper system capable of providing accurate target engagement and modular capabilities in barrel length and caliber conversion.
Production phase of the PSR has begun after demonstrating that the prototype and low rate initial production (LRIP) units met rigorous performance specifications to support military operations.
“We are proud to deliver the ultimate precision sniper systems on the planet,” said Greg Baradat, Director of U.S. Military Sales for Remington Defense. “The move to full rate production successfully demonstrates the quality, accuracy, and reliability of the system to our valuable Department of Defense customers.”
Over the past five years, Remington Defense invested in its ability to compete in the government small arms space by modernizing production facilities, focusing research and development on end-user requirements, and ensuring consistent and repeatable quality in a high-volume, high-mix manufacturing environment.
