Very longrange Semi Automatic Sniper System In 6.5 Creedmoor by Geissele Automatics

Back in September of 2017 we showed you Geissele Automatics‘ developmental Very longrange Semi Automatic Sniper System or VSASS for short in 260 Remington. At the time it looked like that caliber would become the next SOCOM intermediate cartridge. But things turned out differently and SOF selected the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge.

Geissele has continued working on the VSASS, but in 6.5 CM and exhibited it during last week’s 10th Annual USASOC Sniper Competition on Ft Bragg’s Range 37.

It’s outfitted with Geissele’s Super Night Owl Suppressor. You can also see the adjustable gas block.

Internally, multiple components are coated with Durable Solid Lubricant by Nano-Composite Coating.

The Bolt Carrier features axial stability enhancements and has a raised gas key, for improved wear. Additionally, they strengthened the upper receiver for improved stiffness near the lengthened Barrel Extension and added a hardened steel Cam race.

Additionally, the Maritime Bolt Catch for the VSASS is made from billet.

    I like how the bottom of the rail is squared off for what I assume is mounting in a hog saddle.

      That’s a 1.5″ ARCA Swiss dovetail. They have a hand guard that has the whole bottom as one as well. Personally I just prefer keeping a slim lightweight MLOK hand guard on and bolting on the Magpul Arca to MLOK adapter plates if that feature is needed.

    Still going with the forward assist? Thought this would have been deleted or was it part of the required design ?

  6. Ed says:

    Is it same weight, length, etc. as the .260 or a different beast all-together?

  7. Rob says:

    Is that maritime bolt catch SR-25 compatable?
