Soldiers, inspect your M151 spotting scope to make sure MWO 9-6650-238-50-1 (Jan 20) has been applied. The MWO application window will close on 1 January 2023.
That date seems far away, but it’ll sneak up on you and if you wait until after that to apply the MWO, it could take a bite out of your budget.
Follow these two steps to see if the MWO is applied:
1. Inspect the M151 spotting scope, NSN 6650-01-504-8456. Here’s what you should see if MWO 9-6650-238-50-1 has been applied:
Nomenclature: Spotting Instrument, Optical
[Newly added, 4/6/2022]
2. If the M151 scope has the MWO applied, check the property book for the correct serial number formatting: XXXXX-U1-U2. If the serial number isn’t in this format, adjust the property book so the scope’s serial number is in the above format. The MWO isn’t complete until the serial number is correct in the property book!
If you have a damaged scope, contact the TACOM optics team for authorization to turn in the damaged scope through your local supply chain. You can contact them at:
Units will be instructed to order a replacement scope with a laser filter unit (LFU) assembly, using NSN: 6650-01-549-5838. They should not
use the NSN in paragraph 8(d) of the MWO, which is NSN 6650-01-557-7444. This NSN is now terminal and considered obsolete.
