All center of mass shots:

5.56 ($10,000) and 7.62 ($16,000) versions.  LOL @ three center of mass 752 yard shots in a row… incredible.  As it says at the end of the video, the odds of an actual sniper doing that according to the Army’s own data is 1 in 37,037.

As usual there are a few comments which are mind-bogglingly stupid.  Here’s my favorite:

Orlando, FL – Waterbridge Elementary school was less than 100 yards away from the strangely-placed toy. The scene took on an almost comical tone as a real bomb robot faced off against what turned out to be a Hasbro toy robot called Butterscotch that sells for about $350.

The detonation of the pony is at 56 seconds! ( It felt wrong to type that LOL )

  • The upper receiver is a modified AR-15 upper that will feed with standard SAW M249 links
  • The lower and bolt carrier are stock with only a clearance cut added
  • Every other aspect of the gun is standard AR-15

I have no idea if they are for sale.  My guess is that if the price was right (under $300), they would fly off the shelves.  I even think people with regular semi auto AR-15s would buy them for kicks.

Pretty huge news… I’m not sure I really grasp the reason for the changeover though.  There is definitely a huge savings in weight… but that is definitely at the expense of magazine capacity.  I wonder how soldiers will feel about this?  I understand that not ALL of the SAWs are being replaced, but for the ones that are, it seems like 30 rounds in a mag would not go over well for a SAW gunner used to having a 200 round drum.

A lot more info on the specifics of the IAR and the other rifles it was up against over at MarineCorpsTimes – HERE
