M-14's coming back into service is as implausible as M1911's coming back into service, just not gonna happen.
My bets are on a modified XM8 with the 6.8 or 6.5mm rounds, or a AR-15 like rifle with a gas system ala AK-47 and a receiver and barrel for 6.8/6.5mm
I doubt they are withdrawing their M16A2's, they will probably just change the receiver on them so they can be fitted with some fancy Pintanny rail
And why change to the M4 if they already have a range issue?
