    I noticed from pics, videos, etc that some soldiers have barebones A2s with just irons while others have A4s or M4s with optics, lights and such. Is it a "you get what you are given" kind of thing or can you choose what you want? Or is it mission specific? There are so many different kind of accessories (Eotechs, Aimpoints, foregrips, surefires, even sidearms etc) what is standard issue?

    You mean rank?

    It really depends on two variables, what your unit has, and your rank. Right now we have M4s with CCO optics and some of the NCO have ACOG optics. Our admin staff have A2s with CCO optics. Other units have just the A2s with no optics and some have a mixture of M4s and A2s. Just depends on rank and your unit.
