    Default Commandos set their sights on close-combat training

    Royal Marines of 40 Commando honed their day and night-fighting skills with a week of intense training in mock towns in Kent. The Norton Manor-based commandos practised close quarters battle on special ranges at Lydd and Hythe, trying out an enhanced rifle sight to improve their already-impressive marksmanship.

    VOR's Photo in post 4614, 7th image.

    What sight unit is that on the marksman's rifle ? Has it been borowed off an L96 or is it something new ? It isn't an ACOG x6 magnification type, that's for sure.

    Also... Is that sufficient eye relief ? Haven't fired a 7.62mm rifle since the late 80's but I'd guess the recoil would be about the same. A long sniper sight looks like a good method of receiving a black eye

    Scope is the Schmidt & Bender 3-12 x 50 PMII that was previously used on the L96A1 (after the original 6x scope that L96 had) and the L115A1. Since it's got the Accuracy International logo on the dials, I'd assume they are the ones that were supplied with those older sniper rifles yes.

    Suppressor looks like a surefire one?
