Remmington M24 SWS Sales

A few years ago Remington offered a limited number of rebuilt M24''s for sale to Active Duty Personnel and Veterans. Anyone know what the status of this program is? Are rifles still available? Thanks.

That was a screaming deal, everything but the receiver was issued equipment. Head over to Sniper's hide for some eye candy.

As for if they are still available I don't believe so. The program began in 2012 with availability limited to school house trained snipers, the following years active duty got a shot, after that reserves and LEO, and then anyone with a pulse.

I'm pretty sure they are all gone now.

They were advertised on Remington's web page.
Gap makes a perfect clone with the correct sites and trigger.

Good luck.

From what I understand, they sold out. But not as Remmy intended via the order in which they would sell.. Sales were not up to expectations, so they allowed some dealers to buy out a bunch. Go to GB and type in Remington M24. There was one seller in particular who had many ,many listed (very complete) sets with a buy now of $3800 over the past few years.. Can't think of the dealers name off hand.

Thanks from case42so

I picked one up from Gb after having waited for one from Remington. The good thing about going outside Remington is you can scope out the condition. Going through Remington you could get rifles with stocks that don't match scopes etc... mine is beautiful and couldn't be more happy with her. She's painted tan by the actual sniper and the palm swell and cheek weld area are warm down from the thousands of rounds fired in the stock/scope combo. The scope is the original and has a dent in the sun shade from an obvious drop. It's beautiful in my opinion. Anywho, the ones on GB dried up for a bit. They are sold as M24Rs and specifically state collector on the Remington sticker that includes the SN. Mine came in a deployment case with all the goodies. Even has a shipping sticker from 2013 where it came in country in Kuwait.

I think they are sold out, and if so, at this point one would have to watch gunbroker.com for one of those rifles. (I found mine on GB in mid-2015 from a dealer that had 2 of them)

Yes, it was a good deal. One clarification: 3 parts were not military issue on the M24R (or M24 Rebuild):

1. New M24 marked receiver (all serviceable military M24 receivers were retained to build the rifles into the US Army XM2010 rifle configuration. Any un-serviceable M24 receivers are presumably destroyed. Remington was/is not allowed to re-sell receivers with serial numbers that corresponded to US military inventory/deliveries...it has been that way for a long time...)
2. New barrel - after all, who wants a used military barrel with unknown round-count and wear condition? The M24R barrels are correctly marked "7.62 NATO" (not 308W as on their commercial offerings)
3. New M24 trigger/safety assembly (too much liability for used military M24 triggers on civilian rifles - given they might have been inappropriately modified by a military sniper for a super light trigger pull, or a problematic mechanical issue such as a non-operational safety lever/mechanism, etc).

Apparently all other parts used on the M24Rs were serviceable used military parts to the extent possible, hence the "rebuild" designation.

I had found the correct US Army/USGI Leupold M3A Ultra scope with issued rings & scope covers in the summer of 2015, so I bought the rifle instead of the whole kit (circa late summer 2015): Here's some pics:

Right side (note: incorrect rings at the time of this pic):

Bottom with some "customization" from its prior life:

Right side (with correct USGI rings):

Left side:

Box:

...definitely a neat rifle and something that should hold its value over time. I was glad to have found one with a stock that has some "character" from its previous service life....

Thanks from m1sniper

The rifles are all over gunbroker it is a new barrel and other parts with a used action and stock, the packaged deal with the case and scope was a limited time thing and I haven't seen many of them.

looks like it wasn't a used receiver either as per above post...

Interesting, didn't know that. Should have guessed as the receiver usually has a "Destroy" property code and cannot leave the gubmint inventory without proper authority. I get replacing the barrel and assume the mk24 trigger is proprietary to the government.

Not sure how to word this without sounding ugly buuuuuut....for, what was it, three grand, don't see the point in spending that much for a used stock, hard case, 10x scope, and all the little accouterments for a clone (since all the parts that could classify it as in "the inventory" were replaced) when you could build the rifle for less. Again, no negativity towards anyone as I spent a crapload for my M40a5, just a thought.

Building an M24 correctly (a true clone) costs considerably more than the $3800 asking price of the whole kit...and even then the receiver will not say "Model 700 M24" like on the M24Rs. Indeed, I know one guy who was kind-of upset as he built an M24 clone 4 or 5 years ago, just before the Remington M24R program existed, and spent over $5k (or $2k more than the complete kit) to build his replica.

Here's what I have seen on eBay:
Correct USGI M24 deployment case w/ foam: approx $500-600 (if you can find them)
Correct M24 iron sights (ft & rear): approx $350-400 (if you can find them)
Issued M3A 10x scope with USGI rings: approx $1000 (if you can find them)

That is an easy $2k without a rifle...and its clear that GAP wants $3670 for a replica M24: http://www.gaprecision.net/mil-spec-...army-m-24.html
...so add a few other things like bipod, sling, tools, spare parts, etc, that's about a $6k project if I did my math right

Remember back in 2007 or so McMillian sold the M40A1 "USMC return stocks" for $250 or $300, if I recall correctly. Those same stocks now sell for $800 to $1000 depending on condition, and up to $1200-1500 if they are the early 'smear' color pattern. If history is any guide, my guess the nice M24Rs will sell for $6k+ in a few years given their rarity...based on supply (near zero) and demand (not near zero).

Thanks from m1sniper and Chingon

If you go back to that link. look on the right where it says "details", the date shown is 3/7/12, the original offering.

Agreed, it's gonna take you a long time to piece together everything for a clone. I'm just saying you can do it for less if you have the time for the search. Again, not arguing, just my personal viewpoint. I will admit, I didn't know the receivers were M24 marked so that's definitely a plus.

When I got mine, you could buy the rifle with sling, swivels and manuel for between $1800.00 and $2400.00.

Yes, the correctly marked receiver is nice. You may already know this about the M24, but a lot of folks don't realize that the M24 rifles were all Remington long-actions. (not the more common short-actions as used by the USMC M40 platform). To illustrate:

M24R bolt on the top (long action)
M40 replica bolt on bottom (short action)



...this feature is of course the reason how the US Army was able to change the M24 rife's caliber from 7.62x51 NATO to the longer 300 Winchester Magnum caliber with the XM2010 configuration - while still using the same receivers. It is more common for people to build an "M24ish" replicas with the readily available short action, than the proper long action, but you might already know that. It doesn't seem to be common knowledge though. (Finding the correct M24 adjustable trigger for an M24/M40A3/M40A5 replica is also a bit of challenge...but I digress).

Yep, and since I already had the right Leupold scope and rings, I bought the "rifle-only" version you noted, and it was a little under $1900 at that time (summer 2015). (A buddy who went thru US Army sniper school in 2009 provided me his M24 spare parts kit, etc, and I knew where to find an original set of M24 iron sights, so that helped).

Thanks from Chingon
