Good read.
 
Most everybody I have talked to that has served in Iraq/Astan, seems to like the M-4, for the most part.    
The M-9 though, is another story.....Roll%20Eyes

There are so many better options than the Colt.
 
 
 
The gas pistol design that the POF, HK and LWRC use, is the way to go.

As soon as the conversion kits come down in price to between $100 and $150 I think they will sell like crazy.  Right now they are just to much.

The SCAR is interesting and already in use by USSOCOM

The last I read is the the HK416 had been withdrawn. The SCAR may be the reason. The FN is also available in 7.62 with some 80% parts compatibility with the 5.56 version.

The SCAR is an impressive weapon.  They have some cool videos on that website as well.  Thunbs%20Up
