I need some help putting together a deployment kit for me M24A2. I am not really looking for every exact item but more so to just fill in the empty spaces in my Pelican rifle case. The case i have is (472-PWC-M24A2 Rifle Case) that came pre-cut from the factory. Here is what I have so far:
mr_fullmetal The round cutout above the stock is for an OTIS Technology, Inc. cleaning kit NSN:1005-01-453-3783 Sniper 7.62/5.56

The rectangle slot directly in front of the scope objective is for ammo. I think you'll find that M118, M852 or Mk316 boxes will fit that perfectly. Commercial ammo cartons are a bit larger and won't fit. The rectangle slot under the butt stock is for the sling.

Probably for the PVS-22 UNS, and PEQ-2A laser?

L-shaped cutout is for the bolt with extended tactical knob

Vertical slots for detachable magazines

What suppressor is that?

thanks for the reply guys. Any guess what goes in the bottom right corner?
That large pocket is undoubtedly for a Deployment Kit though I don' t know what container goes in it. It's not a Pelican 1100 or 1120 for sure. Check this link out http://www.rifleshootermag.com/rifles/featured_rifles_essentials_030306/ Scroll down there is a H-S Precision rifle with a case that might fit that slot but I have no idea who makes that or what's in it. Your suppressor slot is cut for the Ops Inc. 3rd Model (now the AE M24 Suppressor) which is 12.5" long.

Are any Hide members in contact with Remington Illion, NY?

Any chance of a group purchase of remaining parts/accessories in inventory? After the rebuild program, they may own a large amount.

Lockedandloaded, I think that's an excellent idea, but I'm pretty sure the rifles came out of the Custom Shop in South Dakota, that might be the best place to start emailing.

Hello guys,
I'm also trying to complete my m24. It came from Remington just as a rifle with sling and scope bases. And of course with the iron sight bases. I have the rifle topped with a leupold mark 4 with m3 knobs. I would like to find a m118lr bdc turret for the m4. Right now it just has the civilian 168g 308 turret, and it turns counter clockwise to move the elevation. The older m3 ultras I believe turn clockwise. I'm also looking for a complete deployment kit, and in the kit should be a spare elevation knob. I have contacted leupold directly for the bdc cam and they don't have any spares. And the custom shop said that they can't reproduce the original markings. But they can't get the right dope. I will contact Remington and see what they say. Maybe they have deployment kits available? ?

If anyone else has input to get me on the right path I would be grateful.
Thanks
P

Pierce, the deployment kits seem to be as rare as hens teeth and if they are for sale, the price is ridiculous. As for the m118lr bdc turret, I can ask around, keep checking on GB and ebay. My first M24r's was the rifle only as well, in actuality these were pretty rare I'm told as a lot either came with scope and deployment kit or the full meal deal. Also I believe a lot of the M24r's came out of the custom shop in S. Dakota might be the best place to start calling.

Both my Ultras have the old M118 turret, I did check my deployment kit and the spare elevation turret is just a generic 168 grain turret. I don't think the the 118lr came out until 1995 at which time they were ending the production of the original ultras.
Thanks mjh30! Thanks for the insight on the spare elevation dial in the deployment kit. I have the newer mark 4 m3 10x40 LR/T. I'm curious if the m118lr m3 dial will work on the newer scope. As my elevation know turns counterclockwise. And I think the old M118 m3 dial turns clockwise.

Went out shooting this past weekend and finally got some time behind my 10x mark 4. I’ve shot my m24 before with irons and a target scope but never really shot the gun as it would have been used/issued. All in all I was very please and quite impressed what these guns are capable of. My brother has one as well and his shoots like a laser beam too. The majority of the shots were with handloads, 175 smk w/ 43grs of varget, and the two groups at the 8 & 9 o’clock position were with 168 FGMM. All shots at 100yds. The group in the black was supposed to be on the black sticky at 3 o’clock but I incorrectly adjusted the scope after getting it on paper. Obviously you can tell which ones were sighters and 3/5 shot groups.
