If that guy gets the kinks worked out of it, he needs to market that to the military as an active protection system for armored vehicles. It would be more effective than the two drum-fed AA-12 combo we've been seeing being marketed for that role, not to mention lighter weight, more ammunition, and smaller sized.

Well he didn't even get tracers so I don't know what the gently caress. Also, sights are useful for having a point of reference before you open up, re-acquiring your target, or acquiring a new target.

After further review of this "Shrike", I believe we should get the inventors a couple government grants so they can hammer out the niggly bits, and then get around to issuing them enmasse to infantry and other front line units.

Well, I think the main inventor is dead, as I believe the Shrike was one of Eugene Stoner's brainchildren. Even if he didn't have a hand in it's creation, I know that the upper receiver is heavily influenced from the Stoner 63.

I'm frankly surprised the Marines didn't even consider it during the recent IAR bullshit, considering they wanted something that had the same footprint and format of an AR but would replace the SAW. The belt-fed operation and the ability to upgrade from existing AR stores puts it ahead of the IAR contestants in my book. Reliability, however, does still need to be determined.

I'm not talking about replacing the M249 with the Shrike. I'm talking about replacing the M4/M16A4. The M249 should be replaced by the M240 because that'd be pretty :krad:

Here's what I don't get...

There have been belt-fed M-16/ Armalite variants for decades - If such a thing is really viable in the battlefield, why isn't it being used there now?

FN/Bushmaster SCAR, XM8 - have gas systems/actions engineered for multiple roles and can swap barrels easily. Even if the piston-AR is constructed so the barrel can be swapped easily, is the receiver and carrier group strong enough to handle the sustained fire that a SAW sometimes needs to produce?

I remember seeing something about an HK 416 belt-fed variant that have been undergoing testing with Marines as a light SAW - that was several years ago, and to my awareness, hasn't been adopted.

Not to derail this into a JA2 discussion, a lot of the various efforts at this sort of idea do wind up in JA2 1.13. The MG36 is probably the best of them, although JA2 doesn't include the whole "beta-c mags actually being sorta problematic to actually use" detail.

Ares' unproven claims of foreign military contracts notwithstanding, the only reason for a Shrike is so people who own transferable M16s can have a belt-fed. There's no reason to shoehorn a beltfed mechanism into an M16 if you're not limited to using an M16 receiver as a starting point.

With the subdued 9/11 Tribute limited edition nomenclature on itís blade, the operator carries with him a visible reminder of the Americans lost and the heroic efforts of those who take arms in defense of liberty. Blade design offers a combination spear/tanto point with the best attributes of both. CTV2ô steel, an intimidating blade length in excess of eight inches, hollow grind and v-chisel sharpened edge make the Interceptor 911 an incredibly effective fighting tool. The Interceptor 911 E&E offers further enhancements for real-time escape and evasion activities. It includes a patent pending Splitter Hiltô which provides for cutting away harnesses and overhead cables. Backsaw is optimized for cutting through plexiglass aircraft canopies or helo windows. The choil-notch doubles as both a bottle opener and peacemaker-itsí deployment and use is a great bar fight deterrent in exotic third world locales. Extended serrations aid underwater cutting efforts. Hilt ports provide additional attachment points for paracord in survival situations. Window-breaker in pommel. Notch design allows prybar style mechanical advantage for entry through aluminum vehicle rooftops. Expander tip provides expanded entry-wound channel. Like all Dark Ops blades, the CTV2ô steel will last for decades! The most advanced fixed blade fighter in service today. 100% made in America! Black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) vacuum deposited finish.

This sounds like the official knife of Glenn Beck fans. :v:

Coming this summer all right. I'm hoping to get some camping in and want one of these things. What's a reliable site for ordering one of these? Like, an exactish copy of the above knife. Cabela's (second on a google search) gave me this but it doesn't have the TACTICAL OPERATOR HIGH SPEED LODRAG cache that the corkscrew gives the first example.

To keep on topic here is a tactical battle insertion operator rifle of some kind:

Alternately please recommend a hobo rifle. Remember that alcoholism tends to result in a protective layer of fat.

Forget trying to ply the hobo with food stuffs. Unlike the common homeless on the streets who almost always have no choice in their position in life and therefore deserve all the help they can get, the hobo chooses his lot in this world, and is both quite resourceful and vicious at the same time. They view acts of charity as an affront to their Hobo Pride, or HoPri as it's known in the community, and will, without hesitation, immediately set upon you with their Hobo Knife. You intuition toward finding a rifle for taking these wildmen of the rails is a good one. And as far as that goes, I must suggest a large caliber double gun. I recommend a Holland & Holland .465 'Royal' Double Rifle. Yes, they are incredibly expensive, but I would not gamble my safety on anything less. One round of .465 should be more than enough to take down your average hobo, and you'll have a second one to back up the first in the rare instance one isn't good enough. I would also recommend carrying a revolver in at least .454 Casull, in case the miscreant has any friends along that try to get you while trying to reload your H&H. I know this sounds like a bit much, and I can hear you saying "But wouldn't it be cheaper to just go to Target and buy the Hobo Tool?". Well, shut up. There is no dignity in going to Target, no thrill of the hunt, no retrieving your status as a man if you go about it any other way. Besides, any commoner will see your store-bought Hobo Tool and scoff. Do you want to be scoffed at by a commoner? Do you?!
