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.
