purpose

No recruit earns the Marine title without first gaining proficiency as a marksman with the M16 service rifle. Designed for three-round burst or single-shot semi-automatic firing, the M16 is lightweight, yet still pinpoint accurate, capable of hitting targets with precision at a maximum effective range of 550 meters.

 

features

The 4th and newest generation of the M16, the M16A4 model debuted during Operation Iraqi Freedom and continues to serve as the primary battle rifle of the United States Marine Corps. To provide greater adaptability, the M16A4 was upgraded to include a flat-top receiver unit for mounting optical sights and night vision devices, and a rail adapter system for attaching flashlights and laser targeting systems. During recruit training, recruits learn to fire using only the service rifle's iron sights to ensure they develop proper skills as riflemen.
