Advanced Sniper rifle HM2010 (formerly popular as M24E1) is a deep modernization of the military M24 sniper rifle, made by order of the U.S. military by Remington Arms.

From the initial M24 rifles remained virtually only receiver from the rifle Remington model 700, historically designed for ammunition "Magnum" class. Everything else — the bed, trunk, slide group, the trigger made anew. The manufacturer claims that the use of the armament in the United States ammunition Mk.248 Mod.1 caliber .300 Winchester Magnum sniper rifle XM2010 provide an effective range of about 1200-1300 meters and accuracy at the level of 1 MOA or less. At the time (late 2010), the U.S. Army plans to contain the mess at least 2,500 M24 rifles in the next version of the HM2010 to be sent to the operating forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
