To me, it felt like the Marksman Carbine as it exists in the game is a contradiction. It's semi-auto only, presumably for accuracy, and yet the optic it comes with doesn't offer enough magnification to really reach out and touch someone. The 5.56mm cartridge it's chambered for is also inadequate for engaging targets at distance, so I decided to make a few tweaks.
I started with the base game Marksman Carbine mesh and removed the optic as well as patching the missing section of rail that was exposed when the optic was removed. I then extended the magazine well and lengthened the bolt, before replacing the magazine with a widened Assault Carbine magazine. I also fixed the plugged handguard holes that are present on the vanilla mesh. Lastly, I widened and flared out the front sight block and added the rear sight from the Laser RCW.
