    Maybe the military buys some of the new Sigs, but do you really think they are going to outfit the entire military with these new guns? With what money?

  2. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 3:52 am

    Not much different than scar

  3. hawkboy1792 on April 27, 2023 at 3:52 am

    The whole thing is a tremendous waste of money. There is no one size fits all for every battle scenario. Getting rid of what we’ve got and going to something very similar cartridge-wise to what we had before seems like steps backwards

  4. Chris Fekete on April 27, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Clearly 5 grand

  5. Alex Black on April 27, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Any incoming content or opinions on the SLX & SLH suppressors?

  6. Terrance Goldstein on April 27, 2023 at 3:55 am

    Hey who would have thought that such a beautiful and far better rifle than the AR rifle could be made but hear it is the sig : well we Americans have the best battle rifle in the world aren’t you glad I’m glad 😊

  7. Javier Torres on April 27, 2023 at 3:57 am

    That thing is GORGEOUS! Wow, what a rifle!

  8. Bluegrass on April 27, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Recoil doesn’t seem to bad visually speaking coming from a 308.

  9. 6NBERLS on April 27, 2023 at 3:59 am

    The thing that bothers me about the full military version of the 6.8×51 cartridge is the three-piece casing. Was the stainless steel base of this casing really necessary to contain the 80K PSI operating pressure? Could they not have used a cheaper all-steel casing?

  10. OceanGuy 808 on April 27, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Thanks for the insight. Hopefully Sig can figure how to shave a couple of pounds off that rifle. 10 lbs sounds like it could get heavy lugging it around over a long mission. Sounds like the US army received what they wanted. A durable battle rifle with greater punching power.

  11. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 4:03 am

    All my guns are as good as that or better i dont see much for the army for money.

  12. armynurseboy on April 27, 2023 at 4:04 am

    If I were the Army, I would have told Colt to pound sand regarding names of rifles. "M" designations are military nomenclature, not civilian trade names. Colt does not own the name "M4" and was told so in court.

  13. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 4:09 am

    I was just going to say to complicated for most idiot GI s especially since i was one lol

  14. Ah Jus on April 27, 2023 at 4:10 am

    no one asked anyone who has shot a gun about the design before they manufactured it

  16. Brian Leabo on April 27, 2023 at 4:11 am

    More a fan of the 6.5 arc. But love my larg bore

  17. Trevor Gardner on April 27, 2023 at 4:12 am

    This is just a fancy AR-10, nothing more. It’s a pretty dumb concept and not at all appropriate for replacing the M4. Great for replacing the various weapons chambered in 7.62×51, but that’s about it.

  18. GERALD MILLER on April 27, 2023 at 4:13 am

    i am not going to buy a new rifle. if the army wants a larger caliper rifle i will stick with my 5.56 mm for as long as i can. i agree that a larger caliper weapon is needed. i am glad they are going to be using what i call a battle rifle. i have over 2800 rounds of 5.56. so if i want to go to a larger caliber it will be the 6.8 x 51.

  19. Jared White on April 27, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Wtf is the furry cartridge

  20. Greg Heitland on April 27, 2023 at 4:22 am

    Is there any functional use of those perforated/staggered holes on that scope mounted magnifying lever?

  21. flamezealous on April 27, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Show us an average-size female firing it like that! How smooth is it, really? You look like a big guy; that recoil might not affect you that much.

  22. RAY WRIGHT on April 27, 2023 at 4:26 am


  23. Asdf on April 27, 2023 at 4:26 am

    Doesn’t .308 have roughly the same velocity as 7.62×30 out of a short barrel? It’s a slightly heavier bullet, but I feel like you could accomplish most of the same results with 7.62×39 or .300 blackout.

  24. Gavin Edington on April 27, 2023 at 4:30 am

    Not being facetious but am I the only one who’s thinks two charging handles is unnecessary and redundant?

  25. firstamendright on April 27, 2023 at 4:30 am

    Reminds me of the Robinson armament xrc

  26. Christopher Becker on April 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Big mistake, 1/2 the ammo load out, uncontrollable on full auto, volume of fire disaster.

  27. GL Mc on April 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    What Sig 1:6 scope are you using in this video?

  28. Harry Wild on April 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    It only $4K too! Very reasonable! 6.8mm is around $2 a rd @ 1,000 purchase. Everything else is extra!😮 Spear Light 5.56mm is $2.6K!😮

  29. Columbia War Machine on April 27, 2023 at 4:32 am

    Damn this rifle looks pretty sweet, I want one

  30. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 4:33 am

    Point of impact shift after removing surpressor?

  31. Il mio nome è Nessuno on April 27, 2023 at 4:33 am

    The M5 in my opinion is a stupid design. It is undoubtedly an excellent marksman rifle, but as a troop weapon it is too heavy, bulky and overpowered, as well as excessively expensive. I really fear that it will meet the same fate as the M14, it will remain in service for a few years and then it will be immediately withdrawn, to be replaced with another brand new and super-expensive weapon, because the US Army absolutely cannot stoop to using weapons that already exist and are for sale on the market, maybe not very modern but reliable and already tested in the field. And obviously the taxpayers will pay.

  32. Christopher Allmand on April 27, 2023 at 4:33 am

    It just seems like an unnecessarily heavy AR10 that takes some moderately juiced high pressure rounds.

    Direct impingement done right seems to be more reliable than both short stroke and long stroke gas operation.

    Direct impingement is also lighter weight with more accuracy potential.

    The whole expensive boondoggle seems like a step backwards.

    The velocities achieved will not defeat new body armor without using tungsten or depleted uranium bullets, and in that case… what’s the point?

    Sure, this could replace all DMR’s. But a new short frame 7 pound direct impingement AR10 could also chamber this round.

    This gun is too big and too heavy and so is the ammo. It’s not going to replace the M4.

    The M4 could benefit from the higher pressure operation of the new case, and could benefit from a slightly longer heavier bullet no greater than 5.75mm and 80 grains.

  33. M. S. L. on April 27, 2023 at 4:34 am

    How long is the barrel, including the suppressor?

  34. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 4:34 am

    Love my 260 remington ar

  35. DemocratsAreTheRealFascist on April 27, 2023 at 4:35 am

    Defund and Disband the alphabet agencies

  36. Fabio_I Escobar on April 27, 2023 at 4:35 am

    WOW that thing looks like a musket! HTH are you supposed to do urban/CQB/dismount with that thing? Its a nice and accurate rifle for operators, but PVT. Ricky is not fighting WW2 anymore, taking 800yrd shots. Did the Army really make all that noise, spent time and money for a super kitted out AR?

  37. Joe Brown on April 27, 2023 at 4:38 am

    "The weapon is designed and aimed at close combat forces. That includes infantrymen but also cavalry scouts, combat engineers, forward observers and combat medics, said Brig. Gen. Larry Q. Burris, Jr. director of the Cross-Functional Team-Soldier Lethality and Infantry School Commandant
    There are no current plans to issue the NGSW to non-close combat soldiers. Soldiers in fields other than those listed or not assigned to a direct combat unit will continue to use the M4 options and the M249 SAW, Burris said.

  38. White Rock on April 27, 2023 at 4:39 am

    Price will be INSANE in the MEMBRANE!

  39. William Winn on April 27, 2023 at 4:40 am

    When are we gonna get a comparison between this and the Scar?

  40. A G on April 27, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Such a sexy rifle, have fun with it in Dayz as the SIG SPEAR MCX .277 fury, wish it had a bigger magazine. Love the bronze finish.

  41. c wolf88 on April 27, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Guns are designed to meet performance specs and fit in the using environment. It’s the Vortex scope (son of Tracking Point) that is the game changer. As the USMC tests showed, suppressors significantly improve Command & Control (and can’t ignore hearing damage). Soldiers are constantly moving in & out of APCs, helicopters, buildings, woods, etc. so a long barrel can be a handicap. Hopefully, the Army will also copy the USMC high fidelity ranges (training is the real force multiplier)..

  42. Morgan Hoard on April 27, 2023 at 4:42 am

    No eye safety, "No care". Later

  43. Rebecca Blankenship on April 27, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Great video

  44. svtkilr on April 27, 2023 at 4:43 am

    Probably 4K when available

  45. RightToArms on April 27, 2023 at 4:48 am

    So, did Aero get the pass on the M5?

  46. Rumple Stilskin on April 27, 2023 at 4:48 am

    I sent sig the steel bullet idea. They never acknowledged me or paid me. Nobody believes me. Steel primer piece, internal circular cantilever joint to brass. sigh. ask them about it. Ask them why they never said a man in Virginia sent them the idea… the reason i told them to use the supressor was, at 80k psi ( I calculated 84) you want a more gradual drop in pressure on bullet exit to reduce wear. sometimes rate of pressure change could cause more wear on the coating. and it increases accuracy reduces harmonic influence. I know, it’s painful. a liberal invented the new bullet, and I’m disabled, never took a dime, and I worked hard. Doesn’t fit your narratives, does it? They made fun of me for ‘thumbs forward’ for years. Called me names. Still do.

  47. Alex Christensen on April 27, 2023 at 4:48 am

    We should give these to Ukraine. Would be great PR. Before Regular Army implementation even. Help us test it out? Pregozhin may have body armor and who knows…. Ukraine does have a massive tank killer sniper riffle they make. But it could be a more practical sniper type rifle… Ironic they likely have AK47 in mass. A heavier round when smaller round was more usefull. Now Russia is transitioning to a lighter round when body armor is being compensated for… was it 1947 made? .. finding a come back? too bad they gave them all to the Taliban.

  48. Scott Crawford on April 27, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Thing of beauty

  49. koch on April 27, 2023 at 4:48 am

    call it what you want… call it too heavy for carry ect… but I must say… It is a BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED GUN.,.,.. I want one. for the way it is built

  50. Tom A Hawk on April 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    Evil FDE Rifle, just doesn’t sing like Evil Black Rifle.
