Individual Carbine Competition: Your Thoughts?
Gentlemen, the United States Armed Forces wants a new rifle for their troops. Hopefully this project will not be canceled, so everyone keep an open mind. For more information I suggest you start here:

Individual Carbine Competition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Weapons have already been submitted for testing and evaluation. My question for you gentlemen is which rifle will succeed? Here are the contenders:

The XCR: Why choose the XCR?
The M6A4:LWRC International LLC - M6A4
The ACR: Remington Defense
The SR-16: SR-16 Rifle, SR-16 Carbine, SR-16 CQB
The CM901: DR Exclusive First Look!: SCAR Who? Meet the Colt Modular Carbine (CMC) Model CM901 Multi-Caliber 7.62mm NATO Battle Rifle / 5.56mm NATO Assault Rifle for U.S. Military Special Operations Forces (SOF) and General Infantry Forces (GIF). DefenseReview

Your thoughts? You are intelligent guys. I'm curious which one you think will come out on top as the undisputed best assault rifle in history.

The SCAR wins, based solely upon my hundreds of hours of experience playing CoD MW2 :cool:

Really CoD? Get out of this forum. And Henry I'm hoping for the ACR or the CM901. Colt has always been a reliable gun manufacturer and I don't think they will fail to produce a great carbine. ACR looks like a great carbine and I'd really want to try one. The others don't look like much.

In this economy the M4 or a slightly improved M4 will remain the Army's rifle.

Design requirements

The Individual Carbine will provide accurate and reliable firepower. It must be capable of semi-automatic and full-automatic fire. Integrated rails will accept MIL-STD-1913 (colloquially "Picatinny") rail-mounted accessories. It must be fully ambidextrous.[3] While the caliber for any new weapon is open for the competition, any contributions not of 5.5645mm NATO and/or 7.6251mm NATO will have the burden of test ammunition and extra costs placed on the competitor.
doesn't the M4 currently meet these requirements? is the M4 being outperformed on the battlefield? is our enemy being fitted with the latest and greatest in firearms? :confused:

i really can't see any reason why the Army needs a new service rifle other than to spend a crap load of taxpayer money :(

For some reason I thought the HK was still a contender?
