i cant beleive anyone would look at my pic of a cool but failed gun. XD
Its just that although this is a very cool gun the cancled it , and i just thought people dont care about failed guns.
Bushmaster and others have some very neat *almost's* which probably could have been the real deal if the money was there to finish development.
but the XM8 failed for a reason... Its heavy, expensive and there are better options available (at the time, the SCAR and 416). My opinion is that HK should have just tried to really push the 416 and 417.
I actually thought the HK's would be on top of the pile in the end. But Colt is probably going to climb back up there with the new Modular Carbine CM901...
with the existing contracts, I think the CM901 will get the nod
Should make an interesting ripple in arena.
but who will make, Colt or FN?
It is their High Dive back into the market.
