If the rifle is in the shoulder properly, the aiming eye will be able to look through the rear sight as soon as the stock makes contact with the cheek.
• As the sights become level with the aiming eye, visually locate the target through the rear sight aperture. As the rifle sights settle, shift the focus back to the front sight post to obtain sight alignment, and place the tip of the post center mass on the target to obtain sight picture.
e. Presenting the Rifle From the Weak Side Sling Arms Transport. The hasty sling should be maintained while presenting the rifle from this transport. To present the rifle from Weak Side Sling Arms, a Marine performs the following steps once a target appears:
• While looking at the target, lean forward slightly to facilitate removal of the rifle from the shoulder.
• Grasp the sling with the right hand to prevent the rifle from falling off the shoulder.
• Grasp the handguards with the left hand (the index finger points toward the muzzle). See figure 7-9.
