Named after Sgt. 1st Class Kristoffer B. Domeij, 29, who was killed on his 14th deployment in Afghanistan on October 22, 2011. He was the Army’s first qualified Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) evaluator and his call sign was Tyrant 22. Kristoffer holds the ‘distinction’ of being the most deployed soldier in American history to be killed in action. Fearless in life and in combat, Domeij is remembered by friends and comrades as a consummate warrior and true professional. Col. Mark W. Odom, commander of the 75th Ranger Regiment, said Domeij was a veteran of hundreds of combat missions “whose ability to employ fire support platforms made him a game changer on the battlefield — an operator who in real terms had the value of an entire strike force on the battlefield.” Lt. Col. David Hodne, his battalion commander, said “this was a Ranger you wanted at your side when the chips were down.”

SWORD International Accuracy Commitment:
SWORD International ensures each Mk-17 weapon system is tested at 100 yards using match-grade ammunition. Each weapon system is certified to shoot 1 MOA at 100 yards.
Though we are confident that each weapon system is capable of shooting sub MOA accuracy, we cannot guarantee every end-user proficiency level, optic quality, mounting solution, platform familiarity and ammunition is capable of taking advantage of that accuracy. The end-user should be aware that the above listed factors; as well as environmental variables can greatly affect accuracy
