            Nta but elaborate because even accounting for Afghanistan most firefights happen within 300 or so meters, the firefights like the one you link are arguably aberrations, but if you argue otherwise I'm open to hear it

            Most firefights happen within 300 meters. The long range pot shot battles in Afghanistan are not what we're seeing in Ukraine or what we will see in the South Pacific, it's not what we saw against regular army in Iraq, it's not what we saw in Vietnam, and it's not what we saw in WW2. Additionally, in Afghanistan these longer range firefights were always followed by airstrikes. Again: combined arms.
            Don't forget that one of the reasons we switched from full sized .30 rifles for infantry down to 5.56 is because after WW2& Korea the US military determined that firefights rarely occur beyond 300m, so the extra range of something like 30-06 isn't needed most of the time.
            Combined arms is the name of the game. Pin 'em down with high volume small arms fire, then call in artillery or air support to take 'em out. Artillery has been the primary cause of casualties since the Napoleonic era, and that will remain to be true

            guess thats why Germany and the USA are getting DMRs in .308WM or 6.8Fury because they are so happy with the 556
            Im not a ballistic expert, but everyone who wants to use 556 for 500m+ sounds like a moron to me

    Had a chance to shoot it for the Schützenschnur (German marksmanship badge), it's a nice rifle. The integrated optics were easy to use, I know some people say it's hard to get a sight picture with the magnified optics but I didn't have that problem. Ergonomics are solid as well, would shoot again

    I got to spend a day shooting G36’s with the Germans when I was in the U.S. Army. I really liked it, more than I thought I would. Ergonomics were good, felt very natural to shoot.

    The one I was shooting had the integrated 3x (I think that was the magnification) Hensoldt Wetzler, which was not great. I have one of the old Fero Z24 4x Hensoldts for my HK-91 that was made in the 70’s and it’s like 5x better.

    If there was a reasonably priced G36 option in the U.S. with a flat top, I’d buy it, not to replace my AR but simply because I love guns.

    I agree with the OP it’s peak aesthetics.

      Mexico is starting to produce a semi auto FX05 for limited civil and security sales and Mexico recently changed their laws so they can export weapons again. That'll probably be the closest you can get in the US.

      What's interesting about the SL8 is that the barrel is from the exact same stock as the G36 LMG barrels, left without any special contours. Heavy af but very accurate for what it is.

                Truly a mystery. Have you ever taken these things apart? The HK123 is nothing but an MG36 with an open bolt. Even the lower reciever and gas system are the same

    Looks cool, pretty good (excellent for its time) ergos, actual performance is mid.

    It's not HURRDURR MELTY LEGO FISHGUN levels of shitty and unreliable like it's memed out to be but it's still a little too plasticky and flimsy feeling to inspire confidence and the accuracy is only so-so at best, even for the tuned up civvie SL8s with the fancy BBLs and nicer triggers.

      There are already prototypes built. I think the hold up is that Mexico is waiting to see if 6.8 Fury becomes more wide spread before going all in on launching another standard issue rifle on a full power round. They are still planning a 7.62x51 machine gun in the same family as far as I know. They are still producing new built examples of the G3 alongside the FX05. Their Marines also want to adopt 6.5 Sneedmoor IIRC.
