From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A sear is used to time the internal mechanisms of the weapon to provide a consistent rate of fire, ensuring proper function and accuracy. In the aircraft configuration, the MD has a front and rear sight and a trigger spece which accommodates the spade grip device, while the ground configuration involves the installation of an Egress Package or “infantry modification kit”, which is designed to provide downed aircrew personnel with increased firepower.

It differs from the buttstock of the LW by being half of its size in length, and doesn’t have a polymer cheek piece. Headspace is set by counting the clicks as the barrel is locked down and should be between two and seven clicks.
