Section I Stoppages Immediate Actions And Remedial Actions

A stoppage is cleared through immediate or remedial action. Immediate action is the action taken to reduce the stoppage without investigating the cause. The gunner takes remedial action if immediate action does not end the stoppage.

If the MK 19 still does not fire, or cannot be repaired at the user level, contact the unit armorer.
