    M24 Sniper Rifle

    Evening All, I wanted to know if the M24 was ever made using the Remington short action?

    No, all M24's were built on the model 700 long action only.
    The M40 series used the model 700/40x short action.

    The Army specified long actions so that they could readily be converted to .300 Winchester magnum. At first, some Ranger and SF units had them and also the US Army Marksmanship Unit for long range competition. They had a rebuild program at Remington several years ago converting the majority of the well used 7.62 M24 rifles to .300 Win. Mag. The 7.62 rifles have been replaced by designated marksman rifles, (M110), built on AR10 actions similar to your L129.
