Looking for one, maybe two, m16a2 rubber duck training rifles to put in my m1009 rack. Trying not to pay $250 apiece on the auction site.

Sorry, can't help you with sourcing, but likely somebody here can (and will).

Just curious:

- Never heard that expression before ("rubber duck"), is that a service reference (you know Army, Navy, etc) or ust a generic term or something?

Thanks!

I see a date reference to 1984 (the first definition), and I entered service in 1980: never encountered any rubber ducks!

Funny though, I enlisted under Carter and as a machine gunner the weapons training was memorizing the characterisitics (still remember: "air-cooled, belt-fed, gas-operated" for the M60). Then Reagan came in and it was either live or it was nothing, mostly live: all the way!

Rubber ducks make good sense. I get it.
