SWORD International Introduces the MK-17 Rifle to the Civilian Market

Sparks, Nevada – November 14, 2018 – SWORD International is excited to announce that their highly popular MK-17 rifle is now available to the civilian market.

Previously, this designated marksman rifle was only available to military special forces. This rifle was designed to give the military marksman a semi-automatic weapons system that was lightweight, reliable and highly accurate.

Some of the innovative features of the MK-17 include an ambi-bolt catch/release pad located near the lower-front portion of the trigger well, as well as a fold-down side charging handle. These design features allow for a much more natural handling of the rifle by the shooter. Weighing just 9 pounds the MK-17 feels and looks like a carbine, but shoots much more like a precision bolt-action rifle.

With the inclusion of calibers such as the highly popular 6.5 Creedmoor and the .260 Remington, the MK-17 is an excellent choice for hunters. Reliable under any conditions, the durability and long-range accuracy of these rifles is second-to-none.

The SWORD MK-17 rifle is available in 7.62×51 NATO, .260 Remington, and .6.5 Creedmoor. Now available nationwide, this rifle has a MSRP of $3,995.00.

Whether you are a hunter, a competitive shooter or simply enjoy long-range shooting, the SWORD International MK-17 rifle is the perfect choice.
