1-13. STORAGE OF GRENADE LAUNCHER M203.

a. M12 Rack. Built for the M16 series rifle and the M203 grenade launcher. Store the launcher in the M12 rack with the sight in the 300-400 meter position so that when you close the locking bar of the rack, the bar misses the sight. The sight has to be above the 300-meter position to avoid damage from the bar of the rack. For the correct way of storing the launcher in the M12 rack, see the illustration below.

b. Modified M11 Rack. Stores most M203 grenade launchers with the sight set in the 175-through 200-meter setting. See the illustration below. Check the rack to see which setting is

| best. The 175-meter setting is good for some launchers; others need up to 200 meters. Because of the different positions of the bars, the sight on your launcher may not clear the bar at all. In this case, remove the sight and store it separately in the arms room.

NOTE

Keep objects off stored sights and cushion sights between layers.
