….Military (That Never Went to War).

"The history of the U.S. military's small arms adoption process is filled with "what ifs." Plenty of great firearms have been turned down, from the FN FAL to the Savage Model 1


Here are some of the best rifles that were trialed by the U.S. military but never adopted…."

Somewhat amused by the comment in the first review that –

Semi-automatic rifles in full power cartridges like .30-06, 8mm Mauser and 7.62x54R fell out of favor soon after WWII in favor of those favored in smaller cartridges.

Assault rifles – i.e. rifles with full or at least partially full automatic capability – are designed around lower power cartridges, but semi-automatic DMRs and sniper rifles ;are fielded by numerous militaries around the world.

Somewhat damages the author's credibility.

It's not entirely wrong, though.

Semi-auto rifles in full-power cartridges are basically only issued at the one-per-squad or one-per-platoon level.
