Stiller’s Precision Gets $2 Million to Build Navy’s MK 13 Actions
 
Story by: chrisjcallahan

The U.S. Navy has chosen Stiller’s Precision Firearms to supply the Crane Naval Weapons Center with updated MK 13, .300 Magnum sniper rifles.  The contract is valued at $2,000,000.

PRESS RELEASE - Stiller’s Precision Firearms has been chosen to supply the action (receiver) for the new, updated MK 13, .300 Win Magnum sniper rifle for Crane Naval Weapons Center. The contract, valued at $2,000,000, calls for Stiller’s Precision to produce long actions for the latest version of the MK 13. The Navy could not simply upgrade its M40 sniper rifles from 7.62×51 to the larger, harder-hitting .300 Win Mag cartridge, because the M40 has a short action. The new MK 13 will employ a Rem-style long action in a modified Accuracy International Chassis. Current MK 13s feature an AICS stock, and a Knights forward rail mount or a MARS rail, with a Nightforce scope. Suppressors from various manufacturers are being tested for the latest MK 13.

MK 13 action will eventually be offered on the civilian market.  Jerry Stiller tells us: “[For the MK 13 contract], we submitted samples and won out over the competition in a field type of test using all the submitted actions for consideration. The Navy is putting our action on new AI Chassis systems with new high-quality barrels. Hopefully, when we complete the first phase of the contract for them this year, we will make the same action available to the general public. We will keep everyone informed of what is available as it happens.”

Good for Stiller!  Always great to hear when local companies making excellent products are successful -- especially one in the firearms business!  Jerry's shop is literally in his backyard, behind his house.

THAT is perfect example of what is wrong in our society today.  People have been convinced that the government has money.
 
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GOVERNMENT MONEY... whatever the "government" spends has been CONFISCATED from the people...  The Congress, and the president through Congress' complicity, is spending YOUR money and mine on things THEY want, in general to increase THEIR power. 
 
OK, off the soapbox, but the government doesn't own any money, it takes it from US...

That point is lost on many... I'm saying you should never say "government money"...  money the goverment has confiscated from the people is what it should always be referred to so there is never any doubt and the "useful idiots" don't get away with trying to convince people the government actually produces something.

Dan, I agree with you that the Government has no money, BUT at least in this case, I'm not really upset as how the Government is spending OUR money!  I would rather see them spend it to equip our armed forces with world class equipment than see them give it to countries that wait to see how we vote in the UN to vote against us or the many other ways our Gooberment pisses away OUR money.    Rant on Brother, Rant on!
