In other words, very well-rounded, but not particularly razor sharp on any given edge.I completely agree to a point, & I feel it's fielding to replace such drastically different weapons systems would have caused any platform to miss expectations. At least IMHO.
When i consider a "Do it All" rifle, I understand that my "It All" will differ drastically from the military's needs. I don't need a weapon primarily focused on combat, as much a weapon that can take large game, possibly through thick brush or at distance & if need be, be pressed into defense.
The average Joe isn't going to be in a gun fight like we tend to imagine though, at least not for too long.
Understand I'm saying "average Joe" on purpose. I understand those with experience having boomsticks pointed at them may have a different approach to violent encounters than your average internet operator, but the main goal should be breaking contact, not elongating one's exposure to airborne hot lead.
