Wow, that is a pretty neat weapon. I wonder how much it's going to cost.

I saw one of those magazines mounted to an M-4 at a Special Ops exibition on Ft. Lewis a couple years ago. They are pretty awesome.

Would you not be able to do the same with an M-16?

I'll impressed with the prospects of a new rifle when:
A) It isn't chambered for 5.56
B) Our guys with the boots have the body armor they need
C) They are in tracked vehicles instead of sheet metal bullet magnets
D) When they don't have to dig in their own pockets for little things like good goggles, etc.
