Filipino soldiers provide cover as their comrades storm a house during close quarters battle training in Maloong town, Basilan Island, in the southern Philippines June 5, 2002. Around 1,000 U.S. troops are training Filipino soldiers to fight the Muslim Abu Sayyaf guerillas, who have held two Americans and a Filipino nurse hostage for more than a year. REUTERS/Str

I saw this while looking around on Yahoo. None of them seem to have rear iron sights! Is this some sort of 'point shooting' with rifles? What could be the possible logic? Are sights just not necessary at Simmunition range?

Maybe they are buying them piece at a time and haven't been able to afford the rear sights yet... Definitely a posed shot.. Probably practice rifles with no guts...

Ha! That's a funny pic.

Those are simunitions uppers with the blue bbls and the transparent mags.

Maybe they have the new ultra secret stealth carry handle mounted on it...

The Filipino military implants the rear sight into the soldiers eyes.
