Yes I know there are many piston systems for the black rifle about but it finaly looks like colt have woken up an realised that DI=malfunctions=lives!
Have just seen the Colt M5 in military photos it might not be new news but I am glad to see the colt name using this system.Now US non special forces troops may get a reliable assault rifle now that Colt who have the political swing to convince its only their products which can be used are prducing it.
Any photos/blow out blueprints/you tube clips will be greatly appreciated.

Colt has had a piston rifle in the works for a while.... a long while. This thing goes back to the 1980s. As for Contracts. Colt out of the game. FN is more then likely going to win the M4 Contract.... since that was the last thin g Colt lost.

So the M5 will be used by civilians and LE?

Eventually..... Colt has really gotten on hard times. They're changing their tune and becoming civvi friendly again. For a while they were jerks and tried to simply do government sells. As they lost contract after contract, they realized that to stay afloat it not government contracts, its the civilian market place.

The entire arms industry in the USA is private businesses. With the small arms market, the civilian market is the money maker.
