Seeing how his hand is cupped around the end of the barrel, my guess is that the bolt is open, and he's checking the barrel for cleanliness.

I did the same thing when I worked in the Armory. I just usually didn't have someone on the other end, or a magazine in the gun.

Almost pointless to even try and use Irons on an M4 Simunitions upper. The protective mask makes it impossible to get any kind of cheek wld and only with the most screwed up cant can you even access the irons. That is why I put all of the ragged-out Aimpoints on our Sims uppers, and why I get pissed off every month when I draw a sims upper for training and some assclown has taken the Aimpoint off because they were to stupid to figure out how to change the batteries. The sims suppers have a practial accuracy of about 6 MOA at 25 yards, anyhow, but they still hurt like a mother if you get hit at that range.
