Condition Unknown Transfer

There are times when time or the tactical situation does not permit a show clear transfer of the rifle. The procedures for the condition unknown transfer are conducted by a Marine when he takes charge of a rifle in any situation when the condition of the rifle is unknown (e.g., an unmanned rifle from a casualty, a rifle stored in a rifle rack). To properly take charge of a rifle when its condition is unknown, the Marine must perform the following procedures:

Ensure the rifle is on safe.

Conduct a chamber check to determine the condition of the weapon (see para. 3003). Remove the magazine and observe if ammunition is present. If time permits, count the rounds. Insert the magazine into the magazine well. Close the ejection port cover.
