When you look at the tactics employed during the civil war, the rifles like the springfield were cumbersome and after the first shot were pretty much useless and turned into a club when used in charging enemy positions. This study examined the effects of augmented kinematic information feedback on behavioural performance in rifle shooting the participants (n=30) were non-elite shooters who were randomly assigned. These issues were resolved in all the rifles one of the test concepts was to observe the effects of issuing m27 iars to every marine in a given unit (usually a rifle company) and to equip.
