Unboxing the M27 IAR

    Nexus-7 at ARFCOM said

    This M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle, along with 83 others, was delivered last Friday to Marine Corps Base Hawaii, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment armorers. Since then, M27 IAR gunners and armorers have received training on operating and maintaining the weapon system from Marine Corps Systems Command and gun makers Heckler and Koch.

    Marine Corps Base Hawaii, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment armorers perform a function check on new M27 Infantry Automatic Rifles under the supervision of a Marine Corps Systems Command New Equipment Trainer last Friday. The 1/3 Marines will train and deploy with the weapons to provide feedback that will help decide the weapon systems future in the Marine Corps.

    Excuse me while I pay a visit to the nearest Marine Corps recruiter.
