The IAW/IAR is a heavy barrel M-16 S.A.W. which may or may not be deployed with an HK gas piston upper. Basic bottom line; it takes all the good points of the M-249 and shit cans them in favor of a modern BAR concept. It is the same idea as the failed Vietnam M-16A1 HBAR SAW and the failed 80's era M-16A2 HBAR SAW. This turd floats up about every twenty years as another way for the jackasses in uniform to piss away other peoples money. They change the numbers, name and furniture , but it is still the same useless ass M-16 SAW it was in 1966 when they rolled it out the first time--Everything else is bullshit and propaganda--Ray
I sure hope they come to their senses and leave this weapon at the armory. SAW with a 30 round mag? That is the dumbest idea I have heard of. Hell might as well go back to the BAR, at least it has ammo that can penetrate. The idea that the belt fed MG is inaccurate is funny and hard to believe someone would say such a thing. I guess they have never heard of the role of the MG in combat.... cone of fire, grazing fire, etc. The role of the machine gun is to deliver high volumes of fire to keep the enemies head down while your buddies are maneuvering, and to keep from being overrun in other situations. Constantly reloading is not doing either.
It's not jackasses in uniform that are responsible for this, it's generals listening to the Good Idea Fairy even though they should know better. I'm not a fan of it in the SAW role but it is effective as an interim replacement for the M4 and M16 platforms as it is reportedly more accurate than either of those two weapons.
So what you guys are saying is that a heavy barreled AR15 with a 100 rnd beta c mag and bump fire stock serves no purpose as a civilian SAW as a stop gap measure until battle field pick ups can be aquired?
Its an M16 platform. It runs like an M16 platform. The person that proposed this idea borrowed from some old field manual that showed the automatic rifleman as a M16A1.The 249 sucks in many ways, but this isn't the answer.
