United States Navy Mark 11 Mod 0 Sniper Weapon System
The United States Navy Mk11 Mod0 Sniper Weapon System (National Stock Number 1005-01-475-7980) is a complete rifle system based around the highly accurate Knight's Armament Company SR-25 semiautomatic rifle . It was originally conceived and constructed to meet a requirement placed by the United States Navy SEALs.
The Mk11 Mod0 (pronounced "mark eleven, mod zero") has received worldwide recognition as one of the most accurate and durable semiautomatic rifle systems in existence. It is currently in service with most operational components of U.S. Special Operations Command and also with the Israeli Special Forces. The system has also recently become available to civilian consumers at a unit price of around $7,500 USD not including extra firearm licensing fees.
The Mk11 Mod0 is not capable of fully automatic fire; it is a semiautomatic rifle.
