(Overwhelmingly superior firepower and the willingness to use it is the only proven peace solution.)
Any idea when the RFB is going to be available? Sometime this fall?
The RFB looks a great deal like the Israeli “Tavor” rifle. Bull pup, long barrel, and integral optic. The Tavor is still in 5.56 though. Not a bad round, wouldn’t want to stand in front of one!

ALWAYS had a love affair with Bullpup configurations...
And the FN-FAL has always been one of my favorites too. The “Free World’s Strong Right Arm”...a great nickname. Too bad NATO didn’t adopt the M14, though...
