MARINES TRAIN AFGHAN SNIPERS
Marine scout-snipers with 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, trained Afghan snipers with the 1st Kandak, 1st Brigade, of the 215th Corps. The Afghan snipers use the M24 sniper rifle, which comes in either 7.62mm NATO (with a 10-shot detachable magazine or five-round internal magazine) or .338 Lapua Magnum (with a five-shot detachable magazine). The rifle uses a Leupold 10-power scope, and some versions feature an H-S Precision stock.
