The Marine Corps wants to turn every grunt in the squad into a de facto designated marksman, and the service is getting ready to give them new gear to make that happen. Among the items sought: a new infantry rifle optic with variable power settings, allowing grunts to engage targets at close range and at distances of up to 600 meters.

According to a request for information published in late August, the Marine Corps is seeking what it calls the Squad Common Optic, usable with the M4carbine, M4A1, and M27 infantry automatic rifle.

Among a list of detailed requirements for the optic are an illuminated central aiming point visible in daylight conditions, a minimum field of view of 18 degrees at minimum magnification, and no point of aim shift when adjusting through the magnification range.
