There is lots of actual data to point to. And it’s not my job to sift through the vastness of AR fail data and give you the highlights.

If the DI system didn't work there wouldn't be piles of ARs for sale all over the place. Is the HK better? I think so, at least as a service rifle. I swear some of you fuckers completely fail at any sort of logical thinking.

Lets not forget that in a rather useless "shoot to destruction". Even a low end DI M4 will outlast an AKM by far. Slim barrel profile, moving piston and heat are not friends.

Is that why Colt kept "reimagining" the trials when their M4 kept throwing in the towel at less than 1000 rounds fired during one phase of testing?

Hard to "test to destruction" when the gun won't even reach a "passing grade" in a non-destructive test.

Looks like a comparison to me.


Anyhoo, you apparently missed hanselhd's and my position: The U.S. military has been hampered with a shitty rifle for over 50 years. That the US. Marines have "seen the light" and are transitioning to something else seems lost on some of you.

That many of the world's forces are either transitioning away, or just not using them in the first place seems also lost on you.



We've said nothing about "YOU" owning whatever rifle you want, just that the US Government has been keeping our boys ( and girls ) equipped with a substandard rifle for decades.
BS.

You need to check the tread title which is "DI vs piston AR" not "Marines replacement program".

"Hey NMGuy what data supports your position?"

"Oh lots of stuff can't seem to find any of it right now though".

. . . . but yet the Marines are choosing piston over DI.


At this point, I'm not sure if you're just fucking with us.

Nope. Non supportive data...

Again. Not one of the 3 puzzle pieces they left on the table. That belongs to the other 497 they threw into the trash can because they didn’t fit their desired outcome.



Again. Sorry I don’t have some idiots on YouTube to prove me right at my discretion. Although I’m sure there are some I have better things to do than watch other dudes on the Internet.


I could take a survey on how many people shop at Walmart. If I did it interviewing people in the Walmart parking lot while they’re walking out of the store what do you think my results will be? That’s called selective surveying. Or in other words (statistics). When you trim data that you don’t like to give you the end result you want.

The Marine's are replacing beat up service M4's with carbine gas systems & M16's IIRC for new HK's for reasons unknown. The Marine's have a reputation for being under funded. Perhaps the current administration is allowing them more funding than their used to and they're intent on using it while can they who knows. I'm sure there is more to the story than we are going to be told. None the less it's not a fair comparison to compare a civilian AR in good condition to a beat up military rifle if that's the correlation being implied.
