That's not even addressing things like crashing one another's power grids, financial markets, medical systems, and similar...

Small arms would be an afterthought.


If we are fighting people with real body armor in large numbers...and using small arms to do it...something is going very wrong.

Like nothing has ever gone terrible wrong in the world. I think we sometimes forget how bad it could get, like we're totally immune. It helps to have big bodies of water inbetween us and say, europe, asia and africa. But c'mon. The world, even this country, has seen some crazy stuff. During the civil war, death was ever present and awful. Yet at the same time people sometimes had picnics to watch the fights....... Or so I'm told. I'm no expert and I wasn't there. But really, sometimes it feels like we're one miracle away from SHTF. And furthermore, localized parts of our own country have seen their own SHTF situations. Even if it was relatively short lived.

I mean, the whole island of Puerto Rico is out of power due to a storm?. What do you think would happen in New York if that happened? Maybe people would love each other kumbaya. Or maybe not. Not to focus just on SHTF. But the world, can be a pretty crazy place at times.

Likely I would think, or possibly configurable for either hand. The new Colt M5 is supposed to be completely ambidextrous.

I'm calling bullshit on this. Colt had the M5 on display at two other shows, including SHOT show, and they were DI. Those were the "production" rifles, even.

Even still, the solicitation for the new SOCOM upgrades specifically word themselves as such that pistons need not apply, according to some SMEs who posted about this.

Personally, I thought the execution of the ambi mag release was the weakness for the new M5.

Why make a huge lever like this:


When it could be made like this:


Unless it's designed for lefties wearing mittens, I think a much smaller mag release button would have been preferable.

I'm with this guy. Besides there isn't room under a Geissele rail for a piston system.

Yeah, I was just quoting what the article said. I have no clue if they knew what they were talking about or not.

I thought it was interesting though since Stukas87 said he'd rather have a piston system. It was the first time I heard that said by someone that has a clue.

Per SMEs, most shooting is done in SEMI...AUTO being for SHTF... but maybe the short throw lever would be better?

A lot say the SCAR isn't that bad. Yet it broke like crazy under hard abuse. It adds extra springs and complexity to one of the most simple parts in the AR system.

The ideal solution for full auto is the system used by the AUG/P90 - the "two stage progressive trigger" - a half pull is semi auto, while hard full pull to the rear engages full auto. This allows you to switch between semi and full on a moment to moment basis without manipulating any controls beyond the pressure of your trigger finger.

But the Geissele HSS/ Gas Pedal is the 2nd best solution out there, and it's a huge improvement over the current 180 degree AR selector.

Having shot the P90 full auto, I disagree. I hated that setup for the full auto control. Better to have one consistent trigger pull in my book.

As for the Geissele gas pedal selector, having been issued an M27(16in barreled HK416 variant) a couple times, I can tell you flipping to full auto is a chore. Being able to press and hold for auto would have been amazing and much quicker and effective at engaging. If you think it's stupid, you either don't understand the concept or have zero experience with full auto.

If you don't mind sharing, at what distance is the M27 effective in full auto? And how often is it employed in FA vs as a semi auto DMR?

I know the 416 is considered very accurate in semi auto, but I am very curious as to how it performs in full auto.

I was trained for bursts of 5-6rds at 100-150m or less. Beyond that out to 300m it would be 3-4rd bursts, but mostly precision fires on semi.

Although it was much heavier than an M4, I thought it was much more accurate. The auto trigger mechanism was much lighter and far less gritty than the horrific M4 burst mechanism.

I thoroughly enjoyed the M27 and was very effective with it. It allowed me to make very precise shots but also to turn the heat up with aggression and get momentum going within the small unit.

Flipping 180 to go back on safe during movement was a chore but doable. Having the G gas pedal would have eliminated any fumbling and made movement quicker.

Yes 99% of training even in SF is based off semi-auto. I think its in part to the difficulty with the safety design and training scars.
Circa 1997 we trained full auto a lot for CQB, (at least the SF unit I was in.) Now almost non-existent in formal training.

I bet it was not dreamed up on the fly ...I bet created from direct feedback form assaulters down range.

And one comment on here of what if springs wear out? Already plenty of springs in the M4 and they do just fine.

I talked a little with the gunner in this thread on the problems with the full auto selector.

When you are in a confused environment you want full auto as your go-to but going from safe to full is awkward in a way safe-semi isn't. After first contact I was in burst and if I need control or accuracy I could back off to semi.

I started doing this after I had two pop up moving targets at about 30Ms with nothing but my terp and it took me way too long to get on target. Had I had burst or full auto it would have been a much easier shot. we all trained safe, semi, engage, back to safe. But that just doesn't work with the traditional selector for burst/auto

I am not sure how good the maintaining pressure for full auto is, however. I assume you can "set it and forget it"

as a leg infantry, we get very little training on either burst or moving targets. Much less both.

Depends on how you look at it.

Throw a PEC on the top rail and it is the right height.

Had this debate a few months back. I, personally, like a higher scope mount for CQB (in the general sense, not the technical sense). The more heads up I am, while still maintaining my head on the gun, the more I can see around me and the faster I can react to targets. I give up some accuracy by not having a solid cheekweld, but I would rather miss a 600M shot than not see a 10M target.

Fastest shooting in the world is Trap (reacting to unknown targets at unknown angles)

This is a pretty standard rig at the high level.



When we game, we tend to forget about the target acquisition piece because we know where the targets are.

Think back to the old pop up range. What did you do? You lifted your head above the sights to acquire the target, dropped down and sighted in and took the shot. This, in theory, eliminates one step in that engagement chain.

I have a G high mount. Really want to try the Razor 1-6 on it and see how it goes. blew all my money on other shit this Black Friday, though.

Even though the range facilities have existed for decades. From my time we had an M60 known distance range, I believe, that had the OD silhouettes or the 3D Ivan targets in groups of three on a track system that popped them up, moved them about 30ft or may have been more, then the group would go down. Then it would go back the other way. Were like two or three of these lateral movers among a bunch of others that simulated an oncoming attack, they would start at the back popping up, then successive rows, closer and closer would pop up. That was one of the best and funnest ranges I did instead of the 25m range BS or repeating the BRM ranges.

Edit: This would have been Army, late 90s obviously, and I want to say Wildflecken is the one I remember. We tended to do more in the FWD Bdes, stateside duty was always twice a year, (once a year under Clinton) confirm Zero, go hit the BRM range for annual qualitification and that was it. We freq didn't even have unit funds for fucking blanks for FTX or parts for Tracks unless it was a safety Deadline gig that couldn't be Circle Xed by the BMO.

Also, did they decide to go with a lighter weight barrel profile?

You want to know what happened? I'll tell you what happened.

First, it was sealed until someone leaked an old presentation on the CRA service rifles Facebook group, but you knew that.

Basically, the GS mafia and no Colonel left behind program killed it through a steady barrage of personal and professional attacks, blatant power plays, successfully preventing exposure to end users, delaying/holding actions, misinforming GOs, deliberately taking information and data out of context, not writing requirements, selecting a system solution through a preference based process in a closed loop, running a complete IO campaign completely contradictory to social media guidelines, failing to write requirements (of any kind) correctly IAW the DOD 5000, attempting actions not in line with the FAR and DFAR, concealing Picatinny durability assessments, failing to integrate efforts laterally to other services as part of the JCIDS process, ignoring the process of proponency to advocacy, and basically being completely derelict in their duties.

So, status quo it is, decided by non shooting retired Colonels that still wear their rank, and self proclaimed SMEs. You should FOIA the latest requirements memorandum for an SDMR capability and inquire why its so lax, and why the D, T, M, L, and F parts of the DOTMLPF has essentially been ignored. Its taking constant (and rare) prayer and restraint not to name names, tell all, and metaphorically burn it all down.

In the meantime, yes, the URG-I is as stated. It is a logical approach to evolutionary capabilities growth. I predict, and hope, others will take the same logical approach.

Had this debate a few months back. I, personally, like a higher scope mount for CQB (in the general sense, not the technical sense). The more heads up I am, while still maintaining my head on the gun, the more I can see around me and the faster I can react to targets. I give up some accuracy by not having a solid cheekweld, but I would rather miss a 600M shot than not see a 10M target.

Fastest shooting in the world is Trap (reacting to unknown targets at unknown angles)

This is a pretty standard rig at the high level.

When we game, we tend to forget about the target acquisition piece because we know where the targets are.

Think back to the old pop up range. What did you do? You lifted your head above the sights to acquire the target, dropped down and sighted in and took the shot. This, in theory, eliminates one step in that engagement chain.

I have a G high mount. Really want to try the Razor 1-6 on it and see how it goes. blew all my money on other shit this Black Friday, though.

If you watch the hostage rescue vid from Iraq back in what...2007ish...the guys who do HR were running EO Techs on top of AR carrying handles.
