The Sig Sauer MCX Spear NGSW Rifle #GunFest2021

The Sig Sauer MCX Spear NGSW Rifle #GunFest2021

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves meets with Jason St. John of the Sig Defense Strategies group to talk about Sig’s entry for the NGSW (“Next Generation Squad Weapon”) service rifle, the SIG MCX Spear in 6.8x51mm. In this video, we look at (and of course, shoot) the MCX Spear and talk about the development of the 6.8x51mm “hybrid case” ammunition Sig has developed to work with this platform, and we talk about the potential for this gun to hit the civilian market.

A press quote from Sig on the MCX Spear and NGSW program follows:

““The SIG SAUER Next Generation Squad Weapons system is the only submission entirely designed, engineered and manufactured by a single American company,” said Ron Cohen, SIG Sauer’s President & CEO, “we are proud to deliver this comprehensive solution to the U.S. Army, with new capabilities to enhance mission effectiveness for our soldiers on the battlefield.” He continued: “our ammunition, machine gun, rifle, and suppressors far surpass the performance of the legacy weapons system in range and lethality, offer exponentially better maneuverability, and are significantly lighter in weight.””

    With that mustache you need to cary a weapon.



  2. NCR Veteran Ranger on November 7, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    I hope even if Sig doesn’t win the NGSW project they still release the gun to the commercial market.



  3. Ashesh INFINITE on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I was trying my best NOT to say this but I’ll say it anyway………TACTICAL MOUSTACHE 😁👌



  4. Bryce Felperin on November 7, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Why keep the bolt assist?



  5. Tyler Grey on November 7, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    That guy has a great mustache



  6. Bryson W on November 7, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Looks like a 4,000$ gun



  7. Stinkfish on November 7, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    tbh it looks bulky as fuck and idk about it



  8. Chad Leasure on November 7, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Is it just me, or does the magazine look… backwards when inserted?



  9. dontshoot100 on November 7, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    You should ask the guy with the mustache to help you review other guns – he should totally be a regular on your channel. I love this guy – it would be great if you could give him a villain persona.



  10. Elías Benjamín Uribe Parra on November 7, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    You know the gun is going to be good when the one presenting it has a mustache



  11. Mc leean on November 7, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    0:30…….immediately go to comments



  12. Bu Abood al hajeri on November 7, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    God.. I tried so hard to concentrate, but I failed😂😂



  13. Dead kid no Gong on November 7, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Battlefield 6 | M5A3



  14. Forsaken Ace on November 7, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    I doubt it’ll replace the M2. Maybe just limit the M2 to vehicle mounted systems, but not fully replace. Dude is bold



  15. FanaticalDrummer on November 7, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    He went to his barber and asked for the “Lord Baelish”…



  16. wafflemag on November 7, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Us army should just adopt the Daewoo K2. 👌



  17. Luis H on November 7, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Call him "Handles"



  18. Poya Hashimi on November 7, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Mustache 🤣🤣🤣.



  19. Daniel Delsent on November 7, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    🇧🇷i love you SigSauer



  20. Mark Lemist on November 7, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    When you grow a mustache to detract from your baldness.



  21. TheCoolCarhd on November 7, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    nice mustache



  22. Dhani The Great on November 7, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    This gun is featured in Battlefield 2042 as the M5A3, but the strangest thing is that its standard ammo is 5.56×45 (essentially turning it into MCX Virtus), while the high power ammo correctly depicted the weapon with the 6.8×51 SIG, not to mention you can fire pistol rounds too (turning it into a makeshift MPX) with its close combat rounds.



  23. Rikio Rikio on November 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Sorry but I just can’t take that moustache seriously



  24. Ian Quyck on November 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    I’m in the Army and I would love it if this rifle was our next standard-issue weapon. Even if I won’t see it for a few years



  25. Ho Li Fuk on November 7, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Good good next generations useing Ottoman cool mustache 😉



  26. Eldar Hadziomerovic on November 7, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Man, that’s an ugly ass rifle.



  27. Eric B. on November 7, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Projected number of rounds for barrel life? 3,000?, 4,000?



  28. Captain Rob on November 7, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    What’s wrong with that dudes beard? That beard is weird!



  29. FanaticalDrummer on November 7, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    He doesn’t grab his bikes handle bars..

    He grabs his mustache…



  30. Rattler33 on November 7, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    at 4:21 in the video someones phone went off lol



  31. kevin fisher on November 7, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    I freaking LOVE the side charging option! I was super dissapointed when the virtus didn’t go side charging



  32. Jake Pschirrer on November 7, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    So awesome. Great video.



  33. Christopher Hendren on November 7, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    That moustache is rough.



  34. LJJ on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    That’s a 2 stamp mustache, illegal in California



  35. Fresh Baklava on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Feels like his mustache should be on the front of an old-school Cadillac.

    Beautiful weapon system!
    Thx for sharing



  36. Mason on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Don’t be fooled by the new “tech” and all that shit, it all depends on the caliber and person behind the rifle.



  37. Jason J on November 7, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Downvoted the vid because his wife let him leave the house with that mustache.



  38. Vik on November 7, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    BF2042 brought me to this video



  39. TheWilliam1122 on November 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Lol 😂 James trying to stay serious looking at this guy in the face with that mustache!!



  40. DB1871 on November 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    too heavy



  41. KuFe1992 on November 7, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    This is M5A3 in Battlefield 2042



  42. The Last Signature on November 7, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Need this in my life already



  43. Absolute Resolution on November 7, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    It’s beautiful!! I want one as soon as and if they are ever available for us lowly civilians. It’s almost perfection if that’s possible I f that 6.8mm is what they say it is. I don’t know what else you would want in a battle rifle. I’m sure the government will say we can’t have 6.8mm but Sig should still release it in 6.5/308.



  44. M S on November 7, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Porthos, Athos, Aramis, D’Artagnan & the long lost MCX-ateer, Balderstache



  45. Bruce in Oz on November 7, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    6.8 x 51?

    That seems rather reminiscent of the 7mm "second optimum British cartridge from the early 1950s. It went on in a limited way as the7mm Liviano, as adopted by Venzuela in their initial FAL purchases..

    A .277" ballet vs a .284" diameter?



  46. LUIS MANZANOS on November 7, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    This is not serious.
    I wasn’t able to listen to any explanation due to my lack of concentration thinking about that ridiculous moustache.
    Don’t you have a wife, girlfriend or whatever who could slap your face and tell you: dude, your moustache is a freaking joke.
    Get outa here!



  47. Fuze Airsoft on November 7, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Yeah but are they going to make an airsoft Version



  48. Goru Minosyan on November 7, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    AK47 and a person who has nothing to lose… that is the winning formula! The rest is nothing more than a money making scheme!



  49. theultimatemadman on November 7, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    What if we all collectively set our Calendars to May 10th, 1986 and register these guns under that date??🤔🤔



  50. Chad Reno II on November 7, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    So let me get this straight-
    It’s designed to defeat "armor" but not even level IV armor when almost every other industrialized nation’s military uses it, and yet they already have AP ammo that can penetrate military level IV armor.

    Which begs the question which armor are they trying to penetrate because no military uses level III armor.
