Howdy y'all. Any of you folks know what they are currently qualifying with in Marine Corps bootcamp?
A4, for shorter recruits they put the telescopic stock on for rifle qual.
I feel like if you typed this into the google box it would return the results you are looking for.
However, they are qualifying with either the M16A4 or the M4 depending on height of individual and availability.
Guy I work with told me his son used an Remington AR, not sure of the configuration though
"During phase two of training, recruits spend two weeks training with the M16-A4. The recruits fire from different shooting positions at the 200-, 300-, and 500-yard lines. Later, the recruits are also tested on combat marksmanship techniques. They must quickly identify their targets and hit moving targets from 100 yards away. The scores from these two tests are added together for the recruits' final rifle qualification scores."
