    Sample of 1996

    rifle developed in 1996 on the basis of the Philippine Marine Corps at the initiative of Colonel Jonathan C. Martir, and its production has been established under the Ministry of Government Arsenal defense of the Philippines.

    Semi-automatic sniper rifle

    MSSR completely built on the American Colt M16A1 rifle and is one of its clones.


    MSSR was mainly due to the lack of necessary funds to build its own sniper rifle and long-term use of the Philippines Armed Forces M16 as their primary weapons, as well as active military operations against insurgents and terrorist organizations. Also, a sniper rifle caliber 5.56x45 mm NATO is perfect for firing short-range in terms of major combat operations in the jungle.

On the butt cheek was removed. Also in this embodiment, the rifle was set pistol grip of the rifle M16A2.
