Mk 14 EBR

The Mk 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle was developed for the US Navy SEALs as a designated marksman rifle. It is a semi-automatic M14 in a modernized package. The new chassis is much more ergonomic as it has a foldable stock, pistol grip, forward grip, bipod and accessory rails.

M39 EMR

The M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle is a modernized version of the M14 DMR that was developed for the USMC. The areas of upgrade are the stock, chassis, bipod and optics. The end result looks quite similar to the Mk 14 EBR. The stock is now retractable, a pistol grip is fitted, the bipod is more durable, the weight is decreased and the optics are similar to the M40A3 bolt action sniper rifle.
