U.S. Marines with Alpha Company, Infantry Training Battalion, School of Infantry West, conduct an M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle familiarization range at Range 215A on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, June 5, 2020.

The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle is a lightweight, magazine-fed 5.56mm, select-fire weapon based on the HK416 rifle designed and manufactured by the German company Heckler & Koch. It is used by the United States Marine Corps and is intended to enhance an automatic rifleman's maneuverability.

ITB trains, develops and certifies Marines as riflemen, as well as their primary military occupational specialty within the infantry field, before sending them to join the Fleet Marine Force. (U.S. Marine Corps video by Cpl. Dylan Chagnon)
