    What is the new Army infantry rifle?

    The last I heard it was going to be the XM8 but then the army decided to get more bids. I saw some new type rifles on stargate Friday are they he same ones the won? Really narrow carry handle and skeleton stock.

    Nope but it looked like an XM8. I didn't know they still had it scraped. Found out what they were carrying was the German HK G36 which is what the HK XM8 was probably based on. BTW stargate has a lot of military following and sometimes gets some valuable input from fans of the show. Not that I believe everything I see on a Scifi show is real lol.

    gotta agree, the SCAR rifle has that nasty looking whale hump back on the stock.
