What is the standard scope on the marine M40A1. What is the standard scope on the M24SWS.

I think the standard scope for a M40A3 is a Unertl

Some Marines use ACOGs.

There is no such thing as a West Coast SAM-R, those are just M16A4 MWSs with ACOGs. The SAM-R and the DMR uses Leupolds. And the M40s and SASRs are transitioing to the M8541 made by SB.

The SASR is the special application scoped rifle, AKA the Barrett M82A1-3 50 cal.

The M8541 (8541 is the MOS for a Scout Sniper) is a 3-12x50 scope with a Gen II illuminated mil-dot reticle. The plan is eventually replace all precision scopes in the Marine Corps with them, however the A3 and SASRs will be first. The DMR may or may not happen.

We have the same thermal sights as the army but normally those are used on machine guns. The PVS-10 is a standard Image intensifier, most of the SS community didn't like them in OIF 1, because of being too bulky and I believe most lack confidence in the sight . The S&B is pretty much the top of the line daylight optic out there, I believe the night solution is to place a PVS-14 behind the sight via a mounting bracket.

Clarify for me I know in the beginning the marines had two SAM-Rs One was what is today a regulation Marine M16A4MWS the other SAM-R was a M16A4 with FF DD rail I believe. I also thought that SAM-R had a SS 1/8 match barrel a special foldin FSB made by Knights armory and a two stage match trigger. I thought the tricked out M16 was the west coast SAM-R is it actually east coast. I am not talking about now I am talking about the era before the marines were issued on mass TA31F.
