Three Round Burst Technique

When set on burst, the design of the rifle permits three shots to be fired from a single trigger pull. The rounds fire as fast as the weapon will function and cause the muzzle to climb during recoil. The ability to manage recoil is extremely important when firing the rifle on burst. To achieve the desired effect (i.e., 3 rounds on target), the Marine must control the jump angle of the weapon to maintain the sights on target. At short ranges (i.e., 25 meters or less), firing on three-round burst can be an effective technique to place rounds on a man-sized target quickly to increase trauma on the target. To execute the three-round burst technique, the Marine places the selector lever on burst, aims center mass, and acquires sight picture once for the single trigger pull.
