Nice, they look a little front heavy though, epic barrel length like that would place them in the DMR category.

The weight of the action balances it out fairly well. Barrel length isn't much longer than the SAR-21, which is hardly a DMR.

Okay, I hate to ask, but what are PCAPS? I've looked it up all over the bloody place but can't find it.

They were a mounting system superior to rails developed for the XM8, offering significant advantages like lighter weight, impossibility to snag on vegetation or clothes, allowing the sights to be removed and attached without having to re-zero the sight every time, etc. When the XM8 died, the PCAPs died with it.

Ouch... Wait, PCAPS were the oval cutouts on the handguard of the XM8, or was that something else?

Then that system makes sense. Why would something like that (it sounds cheaper, even) die out?

There is one very good reason though. The attachment system is owned by H&K, and no other attachments are compatible. All attachments would have to be renewed, or adapters would have to be used.

Aside from that, there rises this one issue that all attachments would have to be bought from H&K this way; relying on one supplier is always likely to attract criticism.

I do not disagree though that in the ideal military where everything is bought from scratch with the latest technologies (AKA the average Nationstates military) it would hold its advantages.

By the way, I believe there are more attempts at revamping such kind of attachment system, but I can't name any from the top of my head. Don't take my word from it.

Because the XM8 died. It was a stupid decision, though.

I know; the XM8 was a promising rifle that should've been continued.

Some of it has to do it with PCAPs being largely unknown to many people (I didn't know much about them until Kanine told me about them a few days ago), and because H&K owns it, so it's resurrection either by them or another company relies on them.

I figured it was patented, otherwise it would've been more popular. Kinda like the ASP Guttersight.

I'm surprised the US didn't try to work with them to bring it back, instead they have been pushing for the impractical and heavy powered rails.

Looks great, but I can't help thinking that this would be a bit to long for a bullpup assault rifle. I feel the length would negate the point of the bullpup design.

M16 length barrel in a weapon shorter than an M4. An assault rifle the size of a carbine. Manuvering in enclosed spaces, less awkward length, and other reasons for the M4's adoption are preserved, but you get the barrel length and thus the power of a proper assault rifle.
