I employed the assistance of my SHTF homeboy “Hokie” who posts over at AR15.com. He’s the go-to-guy for specifics on the AR-15 family. He dug into movie photos for a complete analysis. This is his take:

16″ M4 with carbine gas system
Trijicon TA31 ACOG with a Soviet IOR reticule found on Dragonov Sniper Rifles (um . . . ooo-kay!)
Standard 6-position USGI telestock with the end squared off
YHM Railed Handguard with CAA Rail Covers
Pentagon Light / Laser Combo
Everything else is standard.

*if he was in true survival mode he would’ve shot the deer in the ass*
Note the muzzle flash in this pic, an example of Hollywood flare. This rifle would not produce this flash.
