Spats, so probably training.
Anyone besides me think he's holding it funny.
I think he is rather small to be handling the weapon and is stretching to get his hand on the foregrip?
Maybe posing for a a photo before he was trained on its use?
Well, in my first two years at that obscure military college outside Lexington VA, we were issued and trained with M-1s (then switched to M-14's). Never, ever put the forehand that far out, forward of the slide but behind the barrel band was the approved method.
Just a WAG but wonder if it's a training photo ? Rifle is parallel with the stick behind his left leg. As for the grip? Photographer's take creative license
