Are you saying that because of Sig's track record of abandoning or obsoleting platforms/generations? Because I honestly think they are going to get the contract, even if they have to evolve the Spear later on down the line. 277 Fury seems like an expensive and complicated round, but it seems to be doing well in the trials as far as I can see.M is more relevant in 308 than the SPEAR is going to be for decades, if ever.
I know right? No way I can hide that kind of expense from the missus! I'd rather save for a Barrett M82 or M107 at that rate. I just hope Sig can bring it down to $2K in a couple years or so (probably $3K considering how much the vanilla MCX Virtus is going for these days).
