I'm interested in the HK416 comment only because Charlie Cutshaw is one of the most prolific gun writers in the country. He testifies in court cases, writes in dozens of gun magazines and is generally pretty knowledgeable about such things.
I know he is not the final word, but he is exceptionally well-informed.
Mr. Cuthaw is a great magazine writer with light years of knowledge,e but as far as his article on the DR.com, I just kind of toss it in the same junk basket as his review of the RROC M4, which was kind of like a prelude to the POF system.
I like the POF piston M4, but it is not a end all and be all solution, out of all the piston M4 I have ever shot, the HK 416 remains to be the top of my piston choice. This piece of engineering marvel is just simply amazing....
and the M16 system has been helping our great country defeat those that stood against us for over 50 years... I think it has done a fairly well job at it.
Agreed, It really does seem like an ad for the POF. The opening is a brief history and them it debunks all the competitors saying that they arn't much more than a step ahead of the M4/M16, after which he stakes his life on the POF AR which is only really a step ahead itself. The most obvious point is where he addresses those persons on a budget to get another brand of AR.
BUY THE POF NOW BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER SEE THE HK 416!!
Sounds like HK's Competition in the AR Market is getting scared!
