What is the "Poll" question here?

Are you asking what small arms would we use if we ran a private para-military orginization?...

If so, there are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many things to consider. However, in terms of a "standard" issued small arm; I'd go with a Magpul Masada and the Sig p250.

Glocks, because I love them. ;)

And I would go with an ACR because they have such an effective anti-recoil system and you can change the calibre from 7.62 to 5.56.

IMHO a rifle devoted to one cartridge is better than one that designed to use everything.

A good alternative should be the KAC SR25K... Again in 7.62mm.
I love 1911's I can't say that are appropriate for an army... I would use the Glock21 if I needed a .45 cal.

They can also be chambered for the 6.8 Winchester SPC.

I'd have to go with an H&K G36, and an M1911.
Let's be honest, as much as I love the .308, and .338, the better choice for assault, and riflemen would be the 5.56. It's very accurate, and an 8-month old can handle that recoil. I chose the G36 because, well... H&K. It's so much more practical than an M4/M16, or other AR variants. The ambidextrous bolt handle, and selector make it very convenient for any one to use.(The M4's design is retarded. you have to take your hand off the trigger to load it.) The G36, is also much more reliable, and has over 1.5x the effective range of an M4. Maybe I'm just a G36 Fanboi. Not that I don't like AR's I love them. but they're not as practical.

Really? If both are chambered in 5.56 NATO (standard for those rifles in their military variants), what magic does the G36 use to achieve 1.5X range using the same cartridge...? I could agree that the piston vs gas tube design is superior, though.

G36

M4

And using the word retarded is, well- retarded. Just an opinion. You're free to say what you wish, but it's a matter of presentation, presentation, presentation... :shrug:
