This M14 variant started in the year of 2000 with MK14 Mod 0 from the United States Navy Seals from which they requested to have a more compact M14 battle rifle. The US Navy Seals were first to be fitted and armed with the Sage EBR in 2004, and then the United States Coastguard followed there after. The United States Army is also armed with the Sage EBR as the TACOM M14EBR-RI as well as the United States Marine Corp which end up having there own version they call the M39 EMR (ENHANCED MARKSMEN RIFLE). The make up of the many Sage EBR models variants that has been created since 2000 are MK 14 MOD 0, MK 14 MOD 1, M14ALCS, M14ALCS/CV, U.S Marine M39 EMR, U.S. ARMY TACOM M14EBR-RI, M14 EBR-RI NM, MOD 1 CQB EBR, M21 A5 Crazy Horse EBR SASS, Chop MOD 0, MOD 0, MOD 1, and the Sage M4.
The US Naval Surface Warfare Crane Division creates the EBR and its variants and Sage International, Ltd. is contracted and supplies its stock.
