Buy the new US military rifle before the troops get them

Buy the new US military rifle before the troops get them
This is a first.

The US military is replacing the main battle rifle. And - you can buy them now.

https://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/...sig-sauer/

The civilian version is semi- auto and chambered in .277 Fury - rather than the military grade full auto chambered in 6.8 SPC.

Cost - $8000 - so you can shoot ammo that costs $3 a round.


I think I will pass.....

Hmph

Buy,................. nope. The last sig I owned (SSG 3000/308/bipod) I/we were trying for a 1000 yd shot. Played with it all summer, only got to 800 yds consistently, then sold it that fall to an elk hunter.

But let me know when RPG's come up for sale.

I'm holding out for a high power man- portable laser.

No more compensating for drop or coreolis effect...

The enemy no longer needs to shoot back.   They just need some corner reflectors.

RE: Buy the new US military rifle before the troops get them
$8,000 for a gun?? $3 per bullet? (Yes, reread the OP.) Unbelievable!!
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

OLB states $3.00 a round.
