Years ago I was an instructor in Vietnam where we used a modified National match M-14. The system was called the XM21 Sniper Weapons System. It used a 3×9 variable range finding scope for daytime and the PV2 Starlight scope for night work. Our student range had targets from 300 to 1200 meters and was quite effective. To the men and women serving our country many thanks and stay safe.
