As I stated before, designating a rifle as a sniper rifle is actually measurable nomenclature. It has nothing to do with whose hands it is in.

Transversely, if a card-carrying sniper in the Marine Corps is armed with a standard issue M16A4 with an ACOG mounted on it, it does not make that rifle a sniper rifle. The weapon is not capable of achieving the standards required to designate it as such.

You are correct. I'm not sure what this comment has to do with the original question, but you are correct. There is a whole lot more to being a sniper than just running around with a sniper rifle.
