An artical about the new military sniper rifle

Here is a link to an artical about the newly adopted U.S. military sniper rifle. I haven't heard about it yet but maybe it is old news to some of you.

It's interesting reading though.

    The fact that all of the M21s were deployed should have been a clue, but I guess there isn't as much money to be made by just building what you know works. And that is what war is all about, making money.

    This article says there are 116003 M14s left in the USA as opposed to the above article stating 40000 left.

    Nostalgia, aside the M14 series is not a good choice for a SWS anymore. Doubtfull Knight will actually deliver rifles that shoot...

    You are undoubtably right. Hard to fight progress and the improvements it has brought in the last 50 years, except for music. Music has been going downhill since the mid 70's.

    Wonder why they don't look at something like the Tubb 2000. They just have to have a semi? Why the M24 is not sufficent is beyond me
