Factual errors 

Mallard identifies the weapon that killed the NCIS agent as a KA-BAR model 1277, relying on the serrations on the blade. The Model 1277, however, has a straight, non-serrated blade.

Abby matches the bullet fragment to Gibb's rifle. Unless his rifle has been in storage all that time, not possible. In twenty years, it would have been re-issued to a stream of marine snipers, who would train with it or use it on deployment. The wear would change the rifling marks. In twenty years, it would probably have had a worn barrel replaced at least once, completely changing the rifling marks.

Previous poster is out of date. Uniform regulations changed 2-3 years ago and E-6 and below now wear a Khaki shirt with Navy Blue Trousers. Khaki is no longer just for CPO's and "O's"

At one point Gibbs refers to what he calls the "infirmary" aboard a Naval vessel; however, in the real world of the US Navy, that place is known, both officially and traditionally, as the sickbay.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Petty Officer Burrows appears several times in a dress uniform. The blouse is khaki colored. Prior to 2009, the only enlisted people to wear khakis were Chief Petty Officers E-7 to E-9. Petty Officer Burrows would have been wearing a dress white blouse if summertime or black blouse if winter. However, the Navy enacted a uniform change that took effect in 2009; sailors E-6 and below now wear a khaki top with navy blue (almost black) pants. Petty Officer Burrows' uniform is therefore correct. Further, this is not a dress uniform, it is an everyday working uniform entirely appropriate for the setting.
