this new mexican rifle looks awesome. who knows if it's better than the G36, if you read the spin in the wikipedia article for the FX-05 it sounds
like the best gun ever. the 2400 rpm multi-shot capability reminds me of the canceled russian AN-94. i don't know why it wouldn't be built just as
well as a G36, sure some of us americans have an image of mexican workmanship not being as good as say german workmanship, but building small arms
isn't exactly rocket science. not that hard to injection mold, drill a bore straight, use a mandrel, do some investment castings, forge steel, etc,
etc. frankly, i'm surprised this gun isn't getting more attention. this polygonal rifling instead of groove rifling sounds interesting. if
anything, this gun is too advanced and only time will tell how reliable the pulley system and polygonal rifling is.
