Enhanced vs. standard M242: there is a difference.


If you force the enhanced breech into the standard receiver, it is a major chore to get it back out because the enhanced breech is 5 millimeters larger. And you've probably damaged the receiver.

How do you tell the breeches apart? The enhanced breech has a stepped ridge cut into its aft end. The standard breech has no ridge.


If you're unsure which receiver you have, check the data plate on the side of the receiver.. The enhanced receiver's part number is 12524008-1 and the standard's is 12524008. For more info on differences, see WP 0002 in TM 9-1005-200-23&P.

Make sure you know which M242 you have before you order replacement parts.
