SWORD International brings its MK-17 rifle from the battlefield to consumers, announcing the rifle platform will join its commercial lineup.

Originally designated as a special forces rifle, the marksman MK-17 features a lightweight design SWORD says is reliable and “highly accurate.” Weighing 9-pounds, the MK-17 delivers a 16-inch barrel in a compact system that offers long-range capabilities. The MK-17 features an ambidextrous bolt catch/release pad which is placed near the front of the trigger well. Additionally, the platform boasts a fold-down side charging handle.

“Whether you are a hunter, a competitive shooter or simply enjoy long-range shooting, the SWORD International MK-17 rifle is the perfect choice,” the company said in a news release.

The MK-17 comes chambered in the shooter’s choice of 7.62×51 NATO, .260 Remington or 6.5 Creedmoor. Available nationwide, the MK-17 is priced at $3,995.
