The Philippine Navy has taken delivery of the
first 10 units of the Philippine designed and manufactured Night Fighting
Weapon. Its a sign of the increasing sophistication of Philippine Marine
armorers. The weapon is basically a modified Elisco Tool M-16A1 fitted
with a rail mount and a new floating barrel with an integrated sound suppressor.
The barrel itself is a bull barrel (1 inch in diameter) with a 1-9" twist.
The current delivery will be split between the marines and the SWAG.
The scope is a US built Generation 3 D740 scope.
It also comes with a daylight filter and is powered by two AA batteries.
The pictures below show the weapons being zeroed
prior to delivery.
