POTD: M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle with Trijicon VCOG 1-8×28

One of the purposes of TFB’s Photo Of The Day is to broaden the audience for the excellent work done by professionals from combat photography to still and action photography of firearms. A perfect picture may take everything from a split second to months of planning, and it would be sad to see that kind of work go unnoticed. Considering that these images were taken onboard the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3) in the Atlantic Ocean it makes the challenge to produce high-quality images even harder. Above you can see a really good image of the M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle with the Trijicon VCOG 1-8×28 rifle scope. The U.S. Marine is Lance Cpl. Camron Edwards, a rifleman with Golf Company, Battalion Landing Team 2/6, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit.
