MASTER THE M16 RIFLE, M4 CARBINE, AND OTHER BLACK RIFLE VARIANTS

Current, 2017 edition

The art of the long gun is at the heart of every Marine, for every Marine is first and foremost a rifleman. There are no rear-echelon Marines, as no one is far from the front line during expeditionary operations. Therefore, this comprehensive guide contains the distilled wisdom of Marine Corps instructors and sharpshooters over decades, designed and proven to hone a student of any ability into a competition-ready, combat-grade marksman on whose skills his comrades may justifiably rely.

Current edition note: this publication supersedes the old (pre-2016) MCRP 3-01A.

Introduction

Marines are employed across the entire range of military operations, including war and other military operations that focus on deterring aggression, resolving conflict, promoting peace, and supporting civil authorities.

Whenever the situation warrants the application of deadly force, the Marine rifleman must be able to deliver well-aimed shots to eliminate the adversary. Combat-ready Marines must be skilled in tactics and proficient in the use of firearms. Well-trained Marines will have the confidence required to deliver accurate fire under the most adverse battle conditions.

The Service rifle is the primary tool that an individual Marine uses to obtain dominance over the enemy and neutralize the effects of enemy weapons. The Marine Corps Combat Rifle Program progresses the individual Marine from the fundamentals of marksmanship to advanced combat shooting, ensuring the ability to masterfully employ the Service rifle under all conditions.
