    I learned quite a lot while watching this livestream. The phased array gas port topic comes up at around 1:01:35

    Some of the key points for those who won't watch.

    - .MIL (SOF I assume) is using 6ARC
    - G recently won a contract for a precision rifle
    - 3 phase gas port for short barrel reliability
    - He is a talker and very proud of his products
    - Sulfer can be added to barrel steel to increase machineability
    - The El Jefe rifle was produced for an LE contract and looks kind of cool at that price point



    This video is a lot more than a new product introduction and is worth the time investment to watch.
    The GA barrels are also using extended gas system lengths. Not unlike KAC and Noveske.

    What difference do you notice between that a carbine and Middie?

    It shoots smoother than the old school Colt 6920's, or a BCM 16" middy. Which isn't really a huge deal.

    What *is* a big deal, is that it works 100% with steel case ammo and PMC Bronze. And it does that with a smaller delta between the recoil impulse of the weak stuff compared to Frontier 62gr or Federal M855. Not unlike my KAC mod2 16" upper. Very similar to that.
