b. Weak Side Sling Arms (Muzzle Down) Transport. The weak side sling arms (muzzle down) transport can be used in inclement weather to keep moisture out of the rifle's bore. To assume this transport from the Tactical Carry, a Marine performs the following steps (see figure 3-25):
• Release the hold on the pistol grip.
• With the left hand, rotate the muzzle down and bring the rifle to a vertical position on the left side of the body. The pistol grip is pointed outboard.
• With the right hand, place the sling on the left shoulder.
