M40 is a sniper rifle used by the United States Marine
Corps. It has had three variants - the M40, the M40A1
and the M40A3. The M40 was introduced in 1966. The
changeover to the A1 model was completed in the 1970s,
and the A3 in the 2000s. Each
weapon is hand-built by USMC armorers at Marine Corps
Base Quantico, using components from a number of suppliers.
New A3s are being built, and A1s are upgraded to A3s
as they rotate into the armory for service and repair.
The rifles have had many sub-variations in scopes,
and smaller user modifications. The original M40 was
a military type classified version of the Remington
700; it was factory-made, had a one-piece wood stock,
and some other differences to later models. The M40A1
and A3 switched to fiberglass, and there were new
scopes used as well. Utilizing
