How can 3 companies offer what looks like the same rifle? I know patents expire after 15 years but I don't think that rifle design has been around that long.

Look closer. There are plenty of differences.

I would think that as long as the inner workings are different then it wouldn't matter. However, there are plenty of differences despite an outward similarity - at least between the ACR and the SCAR. The XCR looks more like an H&K to me.

carp-bine fishguns, and include the HK G36/XM8 and the FX-05 "Xiuhcoatl" to that list.

Okay, never handled any of the rifles, only seen a few pics of them, they looked an awful lot alike to me.

What? They're all completely different rifles. The SCAR is as similar to an ACR as the AK is to the AR-15.


The SCAR and ACR might look similar, but they're completely different.

There are plenty enough similarities between the three that they can reasonably be compared.
