woops, my bad for the RPM and high should be large. .45 ACP is just a suggestion, it could use those at close range, but be modified to use .30 for missions where longer range is needed. This is mostly why it would be customizable on the go. I know that normally guns aren't customizable on the go, but we're talking about the best gun conceivable. If someone could create such a gin, with simple parts that work well and can be changed whenever you need them to be, wouldn't that be much more ideal than a hunk of metal you can't switch up?
"The Enemy might find a way to do that to the proper users also"
Just thought of something, the RFID could have an option in it that is true or false and is determined somewhere else, in the base of operations. There, they see where the weapons are, and if they switch the option to false, the RFID could explode if the area around it is taken apart. If the option is true, they assume that the weapon is not in the hands of the enemy, and will not explode if the weapon is impacted hard and falls apart for some unknown reason. They could also have another option, where if they think that there is a possibility for the weapon to be used against them, they can just explode it from the base of operations. Do you think that this could work? I know that technology is difficult sometimes, but if it were to work flawlessly it could be very useful.
have you ever seen the kriss vector? it has almost no recoil, and uses .45 ACP bullets. It can also shoot 1500 RPM, if you ask me, it's a lot better. Can you prove me wrong?
The thought on the RFID is that a technically advanced enemy(instead of cave dwellers) migh find a way to blow our weopans while we are using/carrying them. A .45 ACP caliber is still a short range submachine gun. The Russians, fielders of huge numbers of both battle rifles & sub guns in WWII found that the SKS & AK were a big improvement, over all, in firepower. You could make something with a quick change barrell & same cartridge base, like the 9mm & the 7.63 Mauser/7.62 Tokarev, but you don't send troops out with 2 simular but not interchangable rounds. It's inviting disaster. Might do better just upgrading the M16 series to 6.8 Remington or 6mm/223 cartridge.
