Just thought I would share a picture of the troops out in the field in Korea that was recently sent. This a squad of the Scout platoon.

Most of these guys will be rotated out in the next couple of months. Most of them are going to Ft Bliss for the formation of a new combat brigade.

My son is on the far left standing with the M-4.

I think everybody should have an M-4. They look like they could be fun.

Thanks to your son for his service.

This is a sniper squad of the Scout platoon. Notice the AR-10.

Edited: It is probably a SR-25 instead of an AR-10.

Here is another picture of my son's buddies taken at the same time.

That looks like the same weapon. I think it is a .308 SR-25.

The 20 in barrel length and the full stock gives it away !

The SR-25 is expected to bridge the gap between the long-range bolt-action M24 Sniper Weapon System, and the shorter-range M16A2E3 designated marksman rifle and M4A1 carbine.
The M4 carbine differs from the M16A2 rifle only by having a shorter barrel and a telescoped, 4-position buttstock.

Comparison of the SR25, AR10, and Variants
The SR-25, the current production ArmaLite AR-10, and the DPMS LR308(A3) are all similarly based .308 semi-automatic weapons systems. However, there are differences.

The SR-25 does not use a forward assist like the LR308,

but the SR-25, LR308, and original production AR-10 can use the same size magazines. (The current AR-10 uses a modified M14 magazine).

The SR-25 does not use a spring secured firing pin (to prevent accidental firing upon dropping of the weapon) as used in the AR-10. Moreover, the SR-25 uses its own design of recoil spring and synthetic buffer, which is not shared by either the LR308 or the AR10.
