    The US military have the most amazing marksmen in the world. Bar none

  2. I love some of these keyboard commando comments!

    I know this is an old video but can they please teach them to stop pounding their palm on the forward assist every time (at 27 seconds). I was 15 year infantryman with multiple deployments. Not once did I ever need it. Such a bad habit to get in.

    Look at all of those compensators, preventing tinnitus. Get off the Hollywood BS and make them legal, already.

  5. There’s some crazy sloppy shit going on with a lot of those trigger fingers 😂

    They really needed to change the handguard. The SEALs with their 416s already did and it's way better and change the stock

  7. HAKKAR NOIR says:

    Is there any level of qualification that entails hitting a moving target?

  8. So how is this different from the M27 IAR?

  9. John reas says:

    The weapon is effective far past 700M. It can effectively hit a point target at at least 900 with match grade ammo.

    Why didn't the Corps just use a 417 instead of the 416 variant like the M27? The only difference I see is a higher powered scope and a longer barrel

  11. Brian Rayment says:

    any 5.56 mm really is rubbish

  12. Sp0ckr0ck says:

    I guess that shows how good the M27 is as an IAR…

  13. Well, very few of those shown will qualify. Most of them showed horrible positioning of their trigger finger on the trigger.
