Default M-16A2 with M-203 and ACOG

My favorite is the M-16A2 with M-203 and advanced combat optical gunsight.

The rifle is light, accurate and lethal enough. The M-203 gives you a huge advantage in many situations.

The advanced combat optical gunsight gives you improved opportunity for target acquistion/identification and improves chances of hitting targets with rapid engagement. The ACOG is 'mostly grunt proof.'

During the 199Os each USMC squad had 3 M-203s, most had an ACOG, though who 'got it' depended a lot on the leaderships decisions. It might be used by the squad leader or the best shot in the squad might be used as the designated marksman.
