From the above video. I love how the the SureFire suppressor heats up on night vision! I guess suppressors are not a good choice in night time combat operations.

    Still take a M-21 over that AR-10!

    A DI rifle that's very well built but lacks any innovation other then its monolithic top rail? POF has been offering that for years.

    LT (Mark LaRue) continues to play off his (still) good name in the arms biz because he gives customers little 'presents' when they order mounts/optics/mags from his web-site.

    This particular weapon is a close second to an FNAR...but costs, at least, $1000 more! ???

    Buy the FN and shoot it a lot, you'll need that $1000 for ammo!
