  • Next Generation Squad Weapon.

    It appears the military is settling in on a new squad weapon in 6.8 mm caliber.

    hmm...
    If they're that close, I have to believe they're planning to go with the Sig hybrid round. Seems like it would be easier to manufacture a gun designed for high pressures, than all of the other stuff that goes into CT ammo. But, you never know. If Airborne rangers like it, it means it has to be uber-reliable and lightweight, so maybe they did go with Textron.

      Out of my league.
      It would be fun to shoot though.

          yeah, crazy right. lightweight and accurate enough to make it the general issue infantry rifle. However, I think all 3 companies still in the running were presenting as a weapons platform i.e. (2) firearms, one that's like a SAW and one that's more like a standard rifle

            I am grateful for all of our SF groups, but the two that interest me the most are the PJ's and Delta.
