POTD: M27 IAR – Recon Conducts Long Range Training

Photo Of The Day: Shooting the new M27 IAR, made by Heckler & Koch, from a tripod. Using a tripod as a shooting support isn’t as easy as most people think, but it’s a lot easier than shooting off-hand. The optic is a Trijicon VCOG 1-8×28, which was selected as the USMC Squad Common Optic.

Below: From the caption we learn that we’re looking at U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Clayton Caudill (left), Cpl. Nathan Lawrence (center) and SSgt Zachary Huge, all with Force Reconnaissance Company, 2d Reconnaissance Battalion, 2d Marine Division, as they fire at targets during a training event on Camp Lejeune, N.C., Sept. 10, 2021.

The Marines conducted this training event to develop and refine skills for long-range combat.

Sniping with a Schmidt & Bender riflescope, with a somewhat improvised sun visor. If it works it works!

Looks like these U.S. Marines had a really good day at the range.
