I'm sorry, but I can't consider the M-1107 a sniper rifle at the exclusion of others.
The rifle was designed for the anti-material role. It had and continues to serve in the long range sniping role, but all the guys in our Sniper Section preferred the M-110 or M-24, with the .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua replacing the .50 BMG in the long range role.
I've said it before, and it bears repeating, if the gun grabbers are targeting semi-automatic rifles today, so-called assualt weapons, then tomorrow they will be after bolt action rifles, the so-called sniper rifles.
A sniper doesn't have to have a super special scoped rifle to be a sniper, just like the guy with a scope on the top of his AR-15 isn't automatically a sniper.

Trooper pal: "Says the guy who thinks .38 Super and 10mm are viable pistol calibers and gets mad when Wal-Mart doesn't have them."
