    Maybe the whole thing got run over or...dropped off something rather high? Wouldn't be the first time.
    Plastic dust cap is my assumption, but I would normally expect them to fly off (never fired through one myself). It might even be melting considering he is shooting often enough to have two spent casings in mid-air at the same time (would not be fun to clean later).

    That's exactly what I was wondering...

    Yeah, the rail is screwed up, though...

    And the tape over the flash hider could be to keep out dust & dirt; just fire through it, it'll clear itself off eventually...

    My unit doesn't, the Army might. I do bring my own with me to theater though. Daddy warcrimes, that probably is a black plastic muzzle cover, not tape like I thought, they don't always fly off when you shoot through them.

    If you have to bring your personal equipment to battle then there is something seriously wrong with big "o"s budget.

    They issue me gear, I prefer to bring my own better quality equipment. I did it in 08 before the current administration was elected as well. I've spent a lot of money on my own gear that I don't necessarily need to have, but it increases my chances of survival.

    Looking at the close up picture, it looks to me as if the grenade launcher has a backing plate which has pushed up the back end of the rail. Maybe he had to do that to mount the grenade launcher.

    Oh i see..... you guys dont get issued some super duper top secret best stuff around? LOL. Im sorry you must spend your own money to keep you a little better off doing what others wont when there is supposed to be tax dollars for that. Thanks you for your continued service. :guns:

    Are you talking about the metal sloping from the slip ring area down to the 203? I've mounted 203's before on M-4s and M-16's, and never had to do mount it like that, our issued quad rail goes over the 203. I think he probably didn't get the upper all the way in the slip ring, and the recoil from firing a grenade caused it to come out.

    tjsjr, as far as spending my own cash for gear. Pretty much everything I carry as a grunt can be bought on the civilian market, with few exceptions, not too much super top secret stuff. It's my honor to serve. And no one values my life more highly than myself, so its a good investment in my eyes. Plus things like the Pmags just go home with me and I use them in my AR.
