Harris gun works was a break off from McMillan back in the 1990’s and they have since gone out of business. When they were build custom rifles they had a reputation of high quality tactical rifles. The M-86 had been employed by the Navy SEALS and other special forces units. The M-86 used the McMillan McHale stock and they had several other standard rifle models that could be ordered different from the M-86.

In adittion to SEALs, mention of SF units using the M86…., does this mean Army SF(Green Barrets) used the M86 as well? Or just Delta?

Many of the Special Operations units have their own discretionary budgets for weapons systems, so it becomes difficult to determine exactly which units used various systems, especially back in the 80’s and 90’s. To my knowledge, none of the SF (Green Beret) units ever used the M86.
