    DOD small arms procurement was much simpler when the Marines were a cash strapped branch and had to take the hand me downs from the Army. Now flush with GWOT cash, they are muddying the waters with platforms and equipment just to be "different".

    300 blackout would be the most economical way to upgrade if you ask me. Just install the new barrels and crank out mass produced 7.62x35mm ammo. I'm ordering a turn key Rock River 300Blk rifle today at my favorite LGS.
