    AR pistols are sort of a odd ball. Not really a pistol and no longer a rifle. They can be used effectively with special training, but that would leave the average soldier out. SBRs are completely different. Any tactical advantage, IMHO, probably would be some special need that would be unique to a specific situation.

    Thanks Minion, I was trying to figure out how it was to be used. I traded my upper off for a 6.8 SPC varminter. Interesting piece but a odd duck for me.

    As a silenced SBR and a drum mag, I think they would be the cats meow for room clearing/urban combat.


    Minion, the M3 as in grease gun? I was T/Oed on that. Would never want to **** it. It was supplied to Ontos crewman.

    Still in the inventory as the Brad still has the Ramp Ports. Imagine it with an Piccatinny upper and a Beta Mag, short rail handguard

    The M231 may be designed from the A1 series, but it is extremely different. It has a very different internal operation. fIt fires from the open bolt, and can manage a crazy 1,225rpm.

    They are still on the books, but are not used anymore. In fact we we sign them over to Rear-detachment before deployments now. Ours haven't been fired since probably 2004-5.
