Is there a bayonet mount? I'm still trying to figure it out/ look it up. It doesn't look like it...

the G36 has no bajonett mount, so i think the XM8 also has none

Looks like it may be a good weapon. Time will tell...

If the accuracy with this barrel length is as good as it's predecessors, that would be an improvement.
Well, if it's the same ammo as the M16 I don't see how this could be achieved....? That ammo(and really, any ammo) is greatly effected by barrel length. If you shorten the barrel you will loose range and accuracy.
So, unless there is a new type of ammo, or H&K changed the laws of physics.....
