Guns Hk Reportedly Wins CSASS Contract Recoil Staff March 31, 2016 Join the Conversation Soldier Systems Daily is reporting that the Hk G28E was selected earlier this week for the the CSASS Program. CSASS stands for Compact Semi-Auto Sniper System. We've seen several different companies produce contenders since the Army's 2014 RFP (Request For Proposal) bearing the same name was released a couple years ago. Here's an excerpt of the requirements, reportedly intended to source over 3,000 of the weapons. This is a pre-solicitation notice of a proposed requirement regarding the Compact Semi Automatic Sniper System (CSASS). The Army Contracting Command – New Jersey (ACC-NJ), on behalf of Project Manager Soldier Weapons (PM SW), intends to award a single Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with Firm Fixed Price (FFP) Delivery Orders. This requirement will be solicited as Full and Open Competition. … The CSASS will more effectively execute a broad spectrum of missions than the M110 Semi Automatic Sniper System (SASS). The CSASS will provide the following upgrades: improved reliability, improved accuracy, and improved ergonomics; reduced weight and length; advanced coatings; improved optics; reduced felt recoil; enhanced suppressor performance; enhanced modular rail capabilities; an improved bipod, trigger, pistol grip, and buttstock. Per Soldier Systems: It’s beyond rumor at this point. According to multiple sources familiar with various aspects of the program, H&K’s entry for the Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) program was selected earlier this week for procurement by the United States Army. Other finalists were LMT and FNH USA. The entry, named the G28E1, was displayed at SHOT Show in H&K’s booth. Interestingly, it incorporates an OSS Suppressor. According to documents obtained by SSD, the Army has been planning events around an ‘M-110E1’, referred to as an improved version of the M-110 which is more compact and lighter weight, leading us to believe that the CSASS will adopt this nomenclature.
