    Doubly true because it's just their submission, not the final next generation SAW.

    The thread title should really reflect it's just sig's submission

    That said, I don't think a 6.8-08 hotrod is it.

    "I wanna hump more weight and less ammo!", said no infantryman ever.

    Exactly, wasn’t that the lesson from the SCAR-H lesson in Afghanistan?

    I’m all for the DOD switching to the 6.8-08, but only if they put all the 762N on the city market at low-low prices.

    $20 mill ante? Hell, the gov was going to give $1,000 million ($1B) to the illegals that dumped their kids here.

    Same with all the 5.56 left in inventory. If they would flood the civilian market with millions of rounds, prices would be the lowest we've seen in a decade AND the Army would help fund this new thing.

    Sorry Bill Clinton passed a law that prevented US military surplus from being sold on the commercial market. That is why when Pmags started becoming standard inventory the military didn't dump all those USGI mags for $2 like the Germans did when they switched from the G3.

    It is also why you will never see US military surplus ammo of any caliber. They will dump it in the ocean before they ever let it onto the secondary market.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.
