Origins and Early History of the USMC M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle

    The USMC M27 IAR first came on the scene in late 2010 when it was issued to five deploying units that would see if the new automatic rifle was to be as viable as claimed. This video will cover some of the issues with the weapon system and some of the debate surrounding it, getting into as much detail as possible on camera through the experiences of Marine Infantrymen who actually carried it overseas and in combat. Today the M27 has reached full issue with the Fleet Marine Force and Reserves, and might even be reaching a full force adoption if Marine Corps Systems Command can get the contracts and solicitations sorted.
