THE M40A1 COMMEMORATES THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN
TACTICAL RIFLE.

As the military sniper grew in importance in the Vietnam War, the USMC came to McMillan to upgrade its issue sniper rifle.  Accuracy and point of impact were unsatisfactory because the wood stock they were using performed poorly in wet jungle conditions.  Gale McMillan, founder of the McMillan companies, worked with the USMC in 1975 to develop the HTG fiberglass stock and refine the bedding techniques which were emerging on the competitive benchrest circuit.  The rifle was designated the M40A1 and the new rifle went on to revolutionize the modern tactical rifle.
