Soldiers, if your unit has the M287/AT4 tracer trainer and is having trouble getting repair parts, here’s the why and the how to get what you need.
Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) doesn’t have the demand to stock some of the parts for this equipment, so you’ll have to order them directly from Saab, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
In order to get some of the repair parts, you’ll need to order the next higher assembly.
For example, if you have a bad firing rod assembly, NSN 1055-01-326-5405, you’ll need to order the firing mechanism tube assembly, NSN 4210-01-274-6382, which is the next higher assembly. DLA is working with the OEM to order stock for this part.
So, the long and short of getting repair parts for your M287 trainer is that if the Army supply chain doesn’t have a repair part for it, your unit may order the repair part directly from the OEM.
Just email the Close Combat Support Team mailbox with any questions you have about ordering parts:
They’ll help you get your M287 trainer back up and running.
