The M40 rifle is a bolt-action sniper rifle used by the United States Marine Corps. It has had four variants—the M40, M40A1, M40A3, and M40A5. The M40 was introduced in 1966. The changeover to the A1 model was completed in the 1970s, the A3 in the 2000s, and the A5 in 2009.Each M40 is built from a Remington 700 bolt-action rifle, and is modified by USMC armorers at Marine Corps Base Quantico, using components from a number of suppliers. New M40A5s are being built, and A1s are upgraded to A3s and A5s as they rotate into the armory for service and repair. The rifles have had many sub-variations in telescopic sights, and smaller user modifications. The M40A5 incorporates a detachable magazine and a threaded barrel to allow for the use of a sound suppressor or other muzzle device.
The original M40 was a military type-classified version of the Remington 700; it was factory-made, and had a one-piece wooden stock. The M40A1 and A3 switched to fiberglass stocks made by McMillan, with new scopes. The trigger pull on both models (M40A1/A3) is 3 to 5 lb (1.4–2.3 kg).The Marine Corps plans to replace the M40 with the Mk 13 Mod 7.
I ordered the sling in the picture and am happy with it. Recommended for those who might be looking. It took them about 9 days for them to complete the Order (from when I ordered it online, to when I received it in the mail). I have no affiliation with Sandstorm.
What I ordered:
Padded two point sling in multicam - before they became American Weapons Components.
Been great on my ARs but I must change color schemes.
Some vids and reviews on it (this is NOT the MKII).
And a review on Lightfighter...
