Just a little something to give the Antis the vapors...

Real nice, but they'd be even nicer if they were 6.5mm and had a gas piston.

BTW, nice HK91 at the armory... I so want one, only I am leaning toward one of the JLD PTRs in the paratrooper configuration.

I wouldn't neccesarily think that an experimental match caliber in production by one company, combined with any piston system that never yet passed military testing would make for the best AR15 variant - aty least not for serious use. I prefer to have ammo and repair parts resupply handier than mail-order.

" Real nice, but they'd be even nicer if they were 6.5mm and had a gas piston."

Those three carbines are the current houseguns of a career USAF senior NCO, the retail sales manager of a Type 7/SOT FFL, and an ex-Army NCO/lifelong shooter/Class 3 owner. If any one of us had wanted a gas piston upper or an oddball chambering, we could have had it. Why would three people with over a century of riflery experience between them opt for such an inferior system for guns to which they trust their lives?

I'm not complaining about the display of such fine weaponry; I punch above my weight in competition with a Bushie Shorty, but I, like many of our guys at the "sharp end" have more faith in the .308 NATO for putting a bad guy down. I've been working my SOCOM-16 into 3-Gun competition, but I haven't wrung it out at long range yet. Perhaps your next boomstick display could include some beefier boomsticks?
