Shooting from a vehicle is not the only situation where you have operate/use your rifle with folded buttstock.
2)Can you drop your M4 into water and shoot it without completely draining it?you can't.
< How often do you swim with your rifle?? >
Well I had to "swim" my rifle several times(while in combat, rivers and a lakes).And guess what?There was no critical malfunction once I had to use it.Try to do it with a M4 with direct infringement...WITHOUT DRAINING IT
..let's see what happens.
3)can you completely disassembly it in less than 30 sec(let's say that you have to fix a serious malfunction)?you can't.
< It doesn't take more than 30sec to pop two pins and pull out the BCG and CH. >
...am..what are you talking about?Field strip or malfunction fixing?Something else?
4)Can you repair it quickly with tool of fortune?You can't.
< Depends on what needs to be fixed. The AR is easier to completely disassemble than most other rifles. It doesn't require any machinery, just a wrench. > Lol.there are several rifles that are easier to disassembly and to repair than an AR...and just wrench?Are you sure?
5)How often does the M4 jams if compared to the other rifles?A lot of times, army's test clearly shown it.
...and the list goes on. < Indulge us... >(Don't worry...the list is too long)
The AR is a really a great platform, but it needs some radical improvments. I dare anyone to prove that rifles like the G36 and HK 416 perform "just slightly better".
