    Listening to Stoner's interview about these projects it's hilarious to hear how moronic the army was/is.
    Just now again the army decides to reject a new technology that Stoner was a huge developer of, cased telescoped ammo that would have offered 30-50% weight reduction and improved performance, in favor of a rehash of his 60 year old design produced by their golden cow company. Literally the same as with the M14.

      I don't know, man, as cool as it is it's a valid question to ask whether you need one gun with multiple modification kits when you could just buy three or four
      It worked for the SEALs because the numbers involved were so minimal and even they would have probably gotten away with one or two variants

        the idea is to have common production and common maintenance. not to constantly swap out the components. an indiviual Stoner 63 would most likely stay in one configuration throughout its service life.

        Yeah I mean the variant thing was not very useful but despite that the lmg was just a really good gun.

        Also worth noting that in all the pictures you see of SEALs carrying them in Vietnam, it's almost always in the belt fed configuration. I don't see the rifle or automatic rifle configuration as anything other than needless design complexity.

          I have heard it was used by the SEALs on an experimental basis in the carbine configuration too, just for the 30-rounders

          that's because SEALs aren't your common fricking infantry dumbass. When they went innanam they brought guns that offered superior firepower so they could resolve ambushes in seconds and reliably break contact when nessesary.

      CT ammo is basically useless in a shoulder rifle and should be kept to artillery and tanks.
      Your carbine doesn't need all the problems of a revolver. Keeping the chamber and barrel one piece is a good thing.

      That's a box for belt feed actually, and that one is a 63 and not a 63A as are some of the others. The 63A light machine gun was fed from the right hand side. When set up to use the larger drum however it was fed from the left.

    The Rangers are still testing the current LMG version so there is that

      Which is good, but I think nearly taking 50 years and 4 distinct iterations in order to get a single sale after the first could be reasonably called a commercial failure. Idk how it even happened tbh, KAC reps must have had an internal vendetta against it because Socom were happy to throw contracts at the company for decades and yet they apparently bought ultimaxes before they even considered the stoner 86/96. For it to have sold this badly in spite of being on the market this long and being as good as it supposedly is, there has to be some sabotage involved.

      I think this one is actually a drvelopment on the Stoner 96 which itself was a response to the failings of the pos M249 that the army had to push through despite better options being available.

        The stoner 96 is a stoner 86 without the option for top-feeding mags. The stoner 86 is a stoner 63 with all the other configuration bullshit stripped out, leaving just belt feed and top feeding. Compare the bolts between the 63 and the LAMG, its the same gun iterated upon for half a century; the guts has remained largely unchanged.

        The stoner 86 was a direct competitor to the minimi in the SAW program but Stoner saw that the army requirements were stupid and declined to resubmit it for testing. The LAMG and Stoner 96 were always marketed as niche solutions for SF

          You can't just call the SAW program bull because it wasn't like the Army's gun won it.
          The Stoner system probably just couldn't make durability requirements and it'd have been too much work to make them work. The M249's main merit was always its insane durability.

            IIRC Stoners' main gripe was the dual mag feed requirement which they ended up never using anyway and added weight and complexity to a gun meant to be carried along riflemen

    I'd pay good money for a Stoner 63 that is just this but with modern materials and STANAG compatibility and rails.

      Thats what a robarms M96 is. I suspect your idea of "good money" is less than what they go for nowadays.

    obviously the beltfed and the carbine are the practical configs, that automatic rifle looks super fun though
