During the United States War on Terror after the September 11th attacks, the U.S. Army realized they needed a weapon system that could be accurate at longer engagement distances, maneuverable for close urban combat, and carried a round more powerful than that of the traditional 5.56mm that was being used. Coupled with the increased need for snipers, the American military opened up a bidding contract for their SASS or Semi Auto Sniper System program. Among the many companies that entered in 2004, it was KAC (Knights Armament Company) in Titusville, Flordia that won the bid in 2005.
The winning weapon system, as we see here, is a modified version of the SR25 or MK11 MOD0 that was currently being used by the Navy SEAL teams. Being chambered in 7.62x51 NATO or .308 the gun packed a punch and being based off of the same AR10 platform as the SR25, it was familiar to soldiers within all branches of the military who were trained on its cousin, the AR15 (M4/M16).
The airsoft version is a faithful replica manufactured by VFC and is fully licensed which means it sports all the correct dimensions and markings. For being such a hefty looking gun, its surprisingly light for its size. The finish is a rich FDE color which feels smooth to the touch. Each control surface is much larger than traditional AR15 based guns making it easy to reach and blends in well with the overall larger size of this rifle.
Anyone shooting this gun will immediately be drawn to how satisfying the recoil is. The gas system pushes the heavy bolt back incredibly strong, making the recoil impulse easily one of the strongest you will fell on an airsft gun. Each successive trigger pull sends the bolt back, chambering another round and the feeling of the force slamming into your shoulder makes it feel like you are not shooting an airsoft gun but rather a low recoil firearm!
Internally the gun employs the same system as the VFC SR25 ECC though it kicks harder. Most importantly, the M110 features the same mock gas block hop up adjuster as well, making the adjustment of the hop up much easier to do on the fly simply with an allen key, no longer needing to break apart the rifle. Adding to the shootability, the rifle has an adjustable butt pad for better length of pull.
