I disagree with you BMS. The HK G36K is a great weapon. HK put over 25,000 rounds through it in the Yuma, AZ desert without a single hicup and no cleaning.BMS said:I don't blame them, LOL
Well in actuality I would say that both platforms are very solid ones. But, I was not really saying that the G-36 is a bad platform, however, I think the "AR" platform is a bit more universal and far more widely accepted. I agree with your statement that the US mind-set is for AR-type systems, but I think that is changing a little at a time. If I had the option to have either a G-36 or a 416 I would probably go with the G-36 simply because it's something new and different. But who knows, as I cannot have either!!Red Cobra said:I disagree with you BMS. The HK G36K is a great weapon.

Too bad the U.S. LE mind-set is for AR-based weapon design.
