The Navy Expert Rifle Medal is the highest award that a Sailor can receive for a rifle qualification. The current qualifying rifles are the M16 or M4. The medal is only worn if the recipient has achieved "expert" status with a qualified weapon. If they have achieved the expert status, the service ribbon is worn with a silver E device. A blank ribbon is worn if they have received the Marksman qualification and a bronze S device if they have the Sharpshooter qualification. First issued in 1969, normal qualification tests include shooting while kneeling, standing and prone.
Price includes mounting.
Navy Expert Rifleman Medal
Although originally intended as a single, one class award, the concept was extended during the Vietnam War to provide for two additional levels of achievement with the creation of the Coast Guard Rifle Marksmanship Ribbon.
