New small arms for everybody
I have read that the Army, Marines and SOCOM all really want the new rifle.
Big Army has spent millions on trying to get out a grunt level super weapon since the 1960s. This seems to be yet another round of Gee=Wiz with tax dollars.
My understanding was that the new rifle is still in development and so is the expected silver-bullet wolnder round. And tyhere are three rounds to choose from.
Without the cartridge/rifle combination in hand, how can they know? Are the current AR based rifles known to be THAT BAD that an in-development wonder-gun MUST be better?
Will a civilian legal version become available? Will Ruger be able to offer a version of their "Aerican" bolt gun chambered for the new magic bullet?
