Agreed. Looks great for a point man
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (Feb. 17, 2012) -- It weighs 3.5 pounds, has a barrel length of 7.75 inches, fires 12-gauge shells and can be mounted on the M4 carbine or act as a standalone firearm. The M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System is the latest combat enhancer in Strike's arsenal.
According to my calculations, a 10" steel ball bearing ought to weigh 148.7lbs.If Grunts were issued a 10" 50 Lb. Steel Ball-Bearing...they would destroy it...
been there, done that. 870 lives on back, M4 in front. yay for being non-cumbersome.... GI3Carrying a M4 and a 870 would be a pain in the ass. Having what is essentially an over-under configuration is more practical.
My guess is that they probably want a shotgun more for breaching purposes than anti-personnel capability.I thought an M203 could be mounted underneath the M4? Doesnt the 40mm have a
beehive round,What am I missing other than seeing a duplication of effort/money/less effectiveness,more wieght?M4 was intended as lightwieght, close quarters combat and ease of use in a vehicle or am I wrong.Short barrel semi shotgun under a 14.5in bbl collapsing stock M4.Whats wrong with the picture?The developing agency worryed about thier jobs and felt the need to develop anything!Id just love to hear effectiveness reports from the field.
Most definetly idea borrowed from the resident J. Browning of "Sons of Guns"
OK! I get it!? You guys are tin me!!LOL??
They have an 870 that can be mounted to accessory rails just like this thing. It won't hold as many rounds nor fire semi-auto but it also doesn't weigh as much and is smaller.Carrying a M4 and a 870 would be a pain in the ass. Having what is essentially an over-under configuration is more practical.
