SO now…The M4 needs fixin’

Seems that the ARMY wants to fix the M4. Seems that the fixes are what everyone already says they need….A piston, and a barrel that is thicker, and a better trigger.

So maybe they are gonna buy the new Ruger??? Or maybe an SU-16?

Srsly. Why now? Not that these fixes haven’t been needed. And no I am not bashing the M4. It is a good system, albeit with some issues. But what firearms platform doesn’t have issues? (with the possible exception of the designs of JMB……)

One wonders though…Why now?

Who benefits from this? (other than the military men and women who may (and I say may) get a better, more reliable rifle.
