Just give the troops a couple of million Ruger SR-556 rifles. That’s the ticket!

Round counter?

Let me guess: It's rail-mounted and takes CR123 3v batteries.

"• Adding a heavier barrel for better performance during high rates of fire. • Replacing the direct-impingement gas system with a piston gas system." Bout time.

Bushmaster already has an interchangeable patented AK-47 type gas piston system.

Think the replacement system runs about $300 without looking it up.

• Adding a heavier barrel for better performance during high rates of fire. - {Depends on weapon role/application}

• Replacing the direct-impingement gas system with a piston gas system. - {Yes, us redneck gunsmiths have been advocating this for decades. Put a knob on the bolt carrier while we’re at it }

• Improving the trigger pull. {If there is ONE rifle in the cabinet I can’t hit squat with for the first few rounds, it’s the AR. - Need a couple of squeezes to get reacquainted with the trigger }

• Adding an improved rail system for increased strength. {Is this a problem?}

• Adding ambidextrous controls. {Possible}

• Adding a round counter to track the total number of bullets fired over the weapon’s lifetime. - {May God save us from the gadget geeks}

Why does congress have to be involved in this? Do they get a cut from the contractors? Let the men on the ground and their leaders make the decision.
