    If those garands came into the country I would fill a room with them.

    Beautiful Mauser there Os.
    I played a little trick on you with the Desert Eagle,...it's not mine....but the kitchen table beneath it is mine.

    The Desert Eagle is one of the few guns I would never buy, can see no use for it.

    Comparison is really unfair.

    G36 is really "static" compared to the modularity of the SCAR or ACR. Both have the ability to not only change barrels, but calibers on the fly. These rifles are first in the line of rifles that were built modular from ground up. G36 is a traditional rifle in that sense.

    Well, sure. but it's still nothing more than a "pimp-my-gun" kit built around a G36 mechanism

    Isn't G36 a "pimp-my-gun" kit built on an AR-18 mechanism?

    All weapons tend to be evolutions based on existing design, not revolutions.

    By your logic a modern car is nothing more than a "pimp-my-car" kit built around a Model T Ford mechanism.

    The short stroke gas piston system is not proprietary to the G36.

    No, the first real short-stroke gas piston was made by "Carbine" williams and used in the M1 carbine among other guns.

    It's not just how it works, if you look at pics of the G36, the ACR and the SCAR dissassembled, you see a distinct g36-look to the bolt, carrier, recoil spring etc. In and of itself not an issue, but when it gets hyped up like it was the M41A Pulse Rifle, and not just another adaptation of a established design....well, i don't know why it irks me.

    We saw it with the HK 416 as well, it was hyped up as a sales-pitch, and suddenly everyone was on the band-wagon, building piston guns and piston kits. And after all, it's nothing but a piston driven AR, hardly magical or new, as it's been done before HK did it, just not so publicised.

    It is a rifle, it has nothing extraordinary in it, but it has many desirable features built in a single firearm. Get it? That is why people are so interested about it. Nobody is saying it is the final pinnacle of rifle design.

    And as said, G36 is copy itself, have a look:
