Actually it is.
The USMC bought these sights.
The USMC is saying they are still short of these, and have not DMRO'd any. Keep in mind the USMC is putting these on their M4A1's, their M16A4's and their M27 IAR's, for both the Regular and Reserve components.
So any USMC marked sight is in fact government property.
If the armory is turning them away from being turned in what are the Marines suppose to do? Shove them down Uncle Sams throat?
Which makes me question your shortage comment.
If there was a shortage they wouldn't be quick to hand them out like candy, and they would require you to sign and turn them in.
Logically doesn't make sense.
My point being is that not EVERY
sight in-possession is stolen, which you're claiming.
Think of it this way, I lend you my magpul sight -
You try to give it back, but I say keep it - I don't want it back.
Is it stolen?
As I stated prior there are just slightly north of 200,000 active Marines.
Only a fraction are active duty, roughly 40,000.
You stated USMC ordered 250k units from you.
And now you claim there are Marines without BUIS sights.
Your numbers don't add up.
Just seems like bitterness on your part due to the fact that they're being resold for a fraction of what you charge civilians.
Here's the quote from a Marine posted on a previous thread regarding the armory turning them away.
All I'm trying to say is, it's not as cut and dry as you're claiming that Marines straight out stole them and selling them for a profit.
That might not always be the case.
