What's this gray thing inside and on top of the carrying handle? Is it a rifle grenade sight? How is it called so I can find more images of it? Anyone has a pic of the sight picture?

      It's an optic mounting point.

      >literally le current year argument
      It lobs HE and HEAT.
      It lobs heavier rounds than a 40mm and farther.
      It doesn't require any modification or addition to the gun.
      Any rifleman can use it.

        Where can I read more about it? Does it have a name?

          Dunno about the specific name of the mounting assembly.
          It's standard on the "infanterie" variant of the Famas F1 and is intended as the support for mounting the J4 scope, though with the HK416 and the Felin and surbaissé variants it largely went the way of the dodo by now.

          Nevermind, the whole assembly with the carry handle and the mating points to the barrel is called the PGMP which stands for "Poignée garde-main - Précision" AFAIK.

          That's the range notches for direct fire. Indirect fire goes well beyond 300 meters.
          I've done it in both direct and indirect fire.

    The grenade sight I'm familiar with besides the old school one that replaces the front sight is that ruler-like one in picrel.
    I wonder if that's an anchor point for the bulky optics of FELIN or something

    What does the front one do unironically? Looks like a G36 style charging lever.

    Wtf, why do so many American military/police types have this “pug” look? You never see this here in Europe outside of Irish and Russians.

      Part of it is the chin strap. Its similar to an american football helmet. Other countries have helmets that go under the chin. American helmets (and i think British helmets) strap onto the chin so they dont bounce around while running and it scrunches the face. Since most other countries dont actually fight wars they dont care about the helmet bouncing around. The other part might be that he simply has irish heritage.

    It's the base mount of the PGMP. Poignée Garde Main Polyvalente. Versatile handguard grip. Basically a rail interface that can accept different sorts of rail, for either APX scopes, formerly, or Picatiny baseplates.
    >Is it a rifle grenade sight?
    No. But the frontal part can be removed to accomodate the Alidade de visée which is one of the two rifle grenade sights that can be found on the Famas.
    >How is it called so I can find more images of it?
    See above.
    But I'm aslo a nice guy. See picrel.
    You will find more pics on Buddy Hinton's website.

      To add a few details, the PGMP needs a cut in the fiberglass of the original handguard to pass through. It is also tied to the barrel. It's a solid mount but has always been relatively rare and reserved for the guys who needed optics in the 90s. So, during the WOT, circa 2010-12, several small manufacturers built full length rail mounts that could be fitted atop a classical F1 carry handle to serve the same purpose.
      Pic related, the Rail Picatinny ARES F1 from the MPES international company.

      You may find other examples of such aftermarket mounts, since at that point due to the lack of options to accessorize the Famas, especially the older F1s, there were a few small machining companies or civilian armorers offering solutions like this. The issue was grunts sometimes used shit gear like airsoft rails, or drilled holes everywhere to affix shitty scopes, stuff they were most of the time not authorized to do, because there was a need for optics that simply wasn't fulfilled. It was a complete mess. That's when the Famas Revalorisé came by, with a new Beretta made barrel finally having a 1:7" twist rate to stabilize M855/SS109 and two short and moronic picatinny rails protected with a flimsy plastic cover. This carry handle was the same that's used on the Famas Felin, which for its part comes with a lower grip assembly equipped with a joystick featuring several buttons allowing the soldier to manage his radio and digital Felin scope functions.
