The M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle (EMR, NSN 1005-01-553-5196; more formally the Rifle, 7.62 MM, M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle (EMR)) is a semi-automatic, gas-operated rifle chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge. It is a modified and accurized version of the M14 rifle built and utilized solely by the United States Marine Corps (USMC). It is based on the current U.S. Marine Corps Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), which it will replace.

As of October 2008 the weapon has seen limited use in Afghanistan by US Army cavalry scouts operating in the Hindu Kush Mtns.[citation needed]

The rifle is currently issued with match-grade M118LR 175-grain Long Range ammunition. The "basic" EMR (i.e., without telescopic sight, magazine, sling, basic issue items, cleaning gear, suppressor and bipod) weighs 13 pounds (5.9 kg) or less.

It has a resemblance to the United States Navy Mark 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle.

[edit] Specifications

There are several notable differences between the DMR and EMR.

* Stock: the metal stock is adjustable in length and in height to provide a more precise cheek weld. The pistol grip is modified for a better grip.
* Optics: The MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail allows for the use of any optic compatible with the rail; this includes a rather large variety of military scopes and imaging devices. The M8541 Scout Sniper Day Scope (SSDS), originally designed for the M40A3, is issued with the rifle as a set.
* Bipod: A Harris S-L bipod is used on the USMC DMR, but a modified version is used on the EMR to be more durable.

[edit] Applications

The EMR is primarily used by a designated marksman, to provide precision fire for units that do not rate a Scout Sniper. As a replacement for the DMR, the EMR fills the need for a lightweight, accurate weapon system utilizing a cartridge more powerful than the M16A4's standard 5.56x45mm NATO—the 7.62x51mm NATO. The EMR also sees use from Marine Scout Sniper when the mission requires rapid accurate fire. The EMR is also used by the Marine Corps Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams.

Very nice ! I've completed my own M39 clone which I just got back from Smith Enterprise. Here's a revised pic with the Simrad cap and tan handguard in place.

Get the nomenclature right if your going to talk about a Military weapon.
Reading the original post I believe this was mentioned somewhere in there.
"It has a resemblance to the United States Navy Mark 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle."
Might want to read the entire post before jumping in with an opinion.
I didn't know what either of them were but do now.

Are you in the service by chance? I am in the Army and have been for 14 1/2 years. This weapon system came out from TACOM RI as an interim solution for mid range engagements. This weapon system is the (EBR)! Enhanced Battle Rifle. This SOB is seriously front heavy and awkward to carry and not very user friendly. Not trying to pic and argument just state the facts. Take care man
