The SWORD International MK-17 — a rifle based on the military designated marksman platform — is now available to the civilian market.
Previously, military Special Forces units held the exclusive ability to purchase the SWORD MK-17, but now the lightweight system will be more readily available.
The MK-17 weighs nine pounds, while featuring an ambi-bolt catch/release pad and a fold-down side charging handle.
The rifle carries the looks of a carbine, however, it is billed as delivering the long-accuracy of more precision platforms.
SWORD International MK-17 chamberings include 7.62×51, .260 Rem., and 6.5 Creedmoor. The price tag is hefty; the MK-17 retails at $3,995.
