The United States Marine Corps is in the process of fielding the M38, featuring a Leupold TS-30A2 Mark 4 MR/T riflescope atop an M27. The configuration is to be known as the Squad-Designated Marksman Rifle. The TS-30A2 Mark 4 MR/T has previously been fielded with the Mk 12 Special Purpose Rifle.
"We pride ourselves on building optics that deliver elite optical performance and unparalleled reliability. We're ecstatic that the Marine Corps selected the TS-30A2 Mark 4 MR/T. The men and women of the U.S. armed forces deserve the very best, and we're proud to deliver it." - Bruce Pettet, president and chief executive officer for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.
The TS-30A2 Mark 4 MR/T was designed with mid-range applications in mind. The firearm features a 2.5-8x36mm design, and has adjustable tactical turrets and range estimating reticles. A 30mm maintube provides greater strength and light transmission. The Leupold riflescope is waterproof, fog proof, and shockproof.
"The TS-30A2 Mark 4 is the perfect optic for those looking to deliver fast, precise rifle fire. Further, like all Leupold optics, it's been strenuously tested for durability, and fully meets the rugged standards set by the Marine Corps." - Sam Horstman, director of military sales for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.
