I wondered this, Why spend the money to develop a new 50 Cal. Why not just buy a modern 50 Cal, like the CIS 50 for example ?
Seems the way to do it to me, A manufacturer designs and builds the gun, government buys it.
If the gun is a failure, no cost to government. if it is a success, then government pays the development cost through buying the guns themselves.
