Back in the 1990’s the tactical rifle market was just really beginning to come into its own and of course one of the major players was McMillan, not only because of their stock making factory, but also because they built high end custom rifles. Harris Gun Works was a brake off company from McMillan that started to build their own line of rifles.

Harris has since gone out of business but when they were building custom rifles they had a reputation of being high quality tactical rifles. In fact, perhaps their crowning achievement was when their M-86 tactical rifle as adopted and employed by the US Navy SEALs as well as some of the US Army Special Forces Groups. The M-86 used the McMillan McHale stock and they had several other standard rifle models that could be ordered with different options than the M-86. The M-86 rifles was what was originally used by the US Navy to develop the original A191 300 Win Mag 190gr ammo that lead off that revolution as well.
