    Congratulations to KAC. That is one heck of a feather in their cap.

    Supporting countries who don’t support the rights to bear arms, that’s great.

    As opposed to supporting…what countries? There’s only so much gubmint contracts to go around, and Americans are extremely cheap when it comes to paying taxes for anything. I guess they could sell to Myanmar, but a country with generally common history and values seems like a better option.

    The official British announcement:

    "An initial £15 million order of 1,620 AIW systems has been placed, with options to procure up to 10,000 systems – totalling £90 million - under the contract over the next decade. The systems will initially be fielded to the Army Special Operations Brigade (ASOB) who operate in complex, high threat environments."

    Did they select the gun in the video thumbnail? Smart for KAC... they'll get the contract to replace the Mlok with PIC rail in a few years too when the Brits figure out what we're starting to figure out.

    Knight is going to need another warehouse for his car collection!

    I have been out of the loop for a while...what is being 'figured out' regarding MLOK leading to a return of the PIC rail?

    Interesting that they went with the 13.7" barrel.

    It’s the shortest barrel supported by that particular model of rail, which is kinda the optimal length of URX4s. I’ve got a 13.9” in mine, so not too surprising.

    So their guys get a better AR than our guys do?! I'm half serious but that's quite the premium AR they're getting, made in the US too.
