Good Job Marines!

So the Marines adopt the M27, AKA the shit-tacular HK416, to replace supplement the M249.

A light machine gun that probably should have been a FA heavy barrel M4 instead.... 

A light "machine gun" that takes 30 round magazines.

Those magazines being the H&K "high reliability" version that are $40 each.

The Marines then ban the use of polymer magazines in all weapons because H&K created a mag well that is narrower than the standard M4. Ergo, the polymer mags don't work with 100% reliability.

Never mind the EMAG exists or the new revision PMAG solves this issue.
