This recently taken photo shows a blank firing line throwing AR-15 (or the original C7, the C7A1 has an A3 style upper receiver) in use by the Canadian Navy.

I like the color scheme 🙂

    I dont know what your saying most US ships still have M-14s on board and they are used not just for tow line throwing but also for guards on the ship. M-14 is not going away from the Navy dispite the Canandians useing C-7 for there ship security and line throws.
