There is a problem that the proportion of qualitative selection is larger than that of quantitative selection in the selection process of our army’s snipers. In this study, the methods of testing and mathematical statistics were used to analyze the sniper material selection index quantitatively, and the weight of each index was determined through calculation, so as to further build a complete sniper material selection index system. Finally, four main factors were determined, which were stability factor, shooting ability factor, respiration factor and mental factor, which break the traditional mode of selecting sniper based on the form, function, quality and psychology.
