    I know this thread is really old but I saw something on some pictures of recruits at the firing range with scopes and I didn't know if this was a mistake or did they stopped using iron sights?


  9. #84
    I think at bootcamp they use iron sights and at MCT/ITB they use ACOG.

    My recruiter told me last week they all switched to the ACOG rifle scope even in Recruit Training. You are issued the normal handle-grip with iron sights + ACOG scope.

    Any Marines fresh from boot can correct me, but within the last two years they have completely gotten rid of the use of iron sights at Recruit Training. The Marines Corps has deemed them obsolete and one of my station's returning Marines has said that once you hit grass week and go to the firing range, you equip your RCO and proceed as normal with snapping in and stuff like that.

    You are correect my son graduated 31MAY13 and he received his RCO when they moved to the range and kept it until family day.The acog is also equiped with iron sights on top of the optical.Very cool peice of equipment.
