The XM338 Improved Combat Sniper Platform was designed by Sweetwater Precision Weapons for the 2019 US Army trials. It follows a very basic bolt-action design but its designed with modularity in mind. The freefloating rail system and barrel can be interchanged within 30 seconds, and the stock can be fully adjusted for compact transport.
The bolt and its locking mechanism are placed below the bolt handle assembly to keep the package as low-profile as possible.
After budget limitations the US Army decided to drop their replacement program. The XM338 slightly improved and started service in the United States Marine Corps as the Mk.338/MOD1 where it remains in service to this day. It saw action in the hands of NATO soldiers throughout both the Ukranian conflict and Operation Korea Freedom. A Mk.2 version was made with an enormous supressed barrel for use behind enemy lines.
In 2022 it became available for civillian sales as the CSP338.
