Something to ponder...

How different would the world be?? The hypothetical situation being that an American Gun Designer came up with exactly the design for the RL AK-47 and Mikhail Kalashnikov never had the thought.

Think of how different Africa and the middle east might be...

They still be killing each other with what ever piece of crap the Commies decided to flood the third world with. And the AK still too. Even if we didn't flood the world with it, its too easy to make to prevent local copies.

Uh, we'd fare better in urban combat situations and the NATO round would be more powerful? Seriously, what's keeping NATO from upping their common calibur, modifying weapons to fire said new round?

NATO's a bunch of homos who jumped on the "It's faster, so it should do more damage!" band wagon after we threw the M16 into Vietnam. Pretty much everyone using it agrees 5.56 ain't got the balls nessicary.

Agreed with Cadyshack and JW, we really need to go back to a good powerful caliber.... Lots of marines serving are actually using M14s now instead of M16 in Iraq if they can get their hands on them cuz it'll drop the guy in one shot instead of 3-5. We also BADLY need a better SAW, something with powerful instead of the weak ass FN we have right now.... I'd personally love to see the MG3 serving, but that's just a pipedream....

Considering prices in Africa, more like a few years.... That's a 30-50,000 gun.... And the MP28 and Gew41 behind it are around 10,000 each.
