Surprise competition with the USW at the Dutch Marines

08.01.2018

Every year, the Dutch Korps Mariniers, the Royal Dutch Marines invites friendly and NATO forces for a shooting competition in Den Helder. In 2017 it was in December with a total of 24 teams, coming from 19 nations. The competition is designed that each team shoots a pistol and assault rifle course. This year there was an aditional surprise stage, that has to be shot with an unfamiliar weapon, a gun that is not issued with any of the participating forces. This year the organizers chose the B&T USW.

Each participant  had to shoot a course of fire with the USW while the clock was ticking.  To make it more challenging, downsized targets were used to simulate an enemy at 50 m on the 25 m range.

This would normally be a tough challenge on first sight, but then again, due to the features of the USW, it became a rather easy task.  It was to the almost 100 participants a nice surprise that there were excellent results. This  showed on the good scores and happy faces afterwards. Due to the integrated folding stock and the Aimpoint Nano red dot sight first round hits at the “50 m“ targets came easy, even for shooters unfamiliar with the USW.

All participants scored better hits with the USW than with their issued service pistol.
