This message board is here so you can view the latest additions to our NSN library. In addition, you can request new NSN's that you don't currently see listed. To do this, click on the "New Topic" button and make your request. So if you're looking for the NSN for a certain model of 5-ton truck, or a certain kind of power supply, or antenna kit, etc, just put as much information as you know: LIN, Nomenclature, or anything else that would be helpful. If desired, add an email / AKO address if you want a direct reply (this is not required). Then we'll do some looking on our end and see what we can find out. But...... we can't guarantee that we'l be able to find every NSN that people request, because of the difficulty in conducting detailed research on each one. (Assistance from the community would be highly appreciated, in cases where we're stumped!)

FYI for all the Marines out there -- and we know we have a lot of inquiries from the USMC -- this is the annual notice that goes out from the Marine Corps Combat Development & Integration office. It's due to get renewed shortly, but in the meantime, here's the guidance that's currently in effect.

There are quite a few interesting pieces of information throughout. For instance, the new 5.56mm EPM ("Enhanced Performance Magazine") is authorized for training ONLY -- and not deployment.

There's a lot more info where that came from. Read on........

Note: The adjustable buttstock (M16A4) is used to gain optimal length of pull and eye relief when utilizing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as body armor. Units are encouraged to purchase and install kits as needed but must retain fixed buttstocks.

12. In keeping with the “train as you fight” ethos, it is imperative that Marines know how to properly and effectively arrange and mount modular attachments. Improper mounting can lead to equipment loss. Improper arrangement can lead to a device interfering with another. Proper Pre Combat Checks/Pre Combat Inspections during training will ensure this does not become a combat liability.

13. The recently procured Glock 19 listed in paragraph 4 is authorized for units with this pistol on their Table of Equipment, and assigned for distribution under the Marine Corps fielding plan. Command approved concealed holsters are authorized for this item.

15. Both 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, and 3d Battalion, 5th Marines, are authorized to conduct ART and APT with experimental weapons and attachments, as directed, in support of the Marine Corps Warfighting Labs Sea Dragon study for Marine Corps Force 2025 table of organization, T/E, concepts and design.

16. Weapons Training Battalion Quantico, marksmanship program management section will release this message annually in order to update the authorized weapons, optics and modular attachments required for annual rifle and pistol training.

17. The point of contact is Mr. G. J. Bensinger at (703) 784-1178, or email gerry.bensinger(at)usmc.mil.

18. Release authorized by Lieutenant General Robert S. Walsh, Deputy Commandant, Combat Development and Integration.//
