The Keefe Report: #Marines Send in the @LeupoldOptics

“The M27 is an Automatic Rifle and it sets the conditions for small unit movement in a completely different manner than its predecessor, the M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon. … The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle (IAR) is a lightweight, air- cooled, pusher rod gas operated, magazine fed, shoulder fired weapon. It operates in semi-automatic and automatic modes of fire. This allows the user to engage with precision, and switch to suppressive fire, or vice versa, as needed. Compared to the M249, the reduction in weight allows the user to be more agile in today’s aggressive fight. The IAR’s pusher rod gas system directs 95% of propellant gases and fouling out of the muzzle, allowing the weapon to remain virtually carbon free for hundreds of rounds. Built with a Free Floating Rail System there is no contact between the barrel and Rail system except for at the base of the receiver.”
