3: Because you can already buy an M1A1 from SA? Last I heard the Ruger XGI was fatally flawed as the basic design was too weak to handle the round. If it was changed to make it actually work, it would have been bigger than the M14....
4:I'd rather see them make the old .44 carbine with a desert eagle magwell and cheaper mags to fit both.
5: SA Timberwolf? IMI made them.
What I would like to see is a replacement lower for the MKII that has the MKIII mag system without the safety BS. Or pull the safety BS out of the MKIII design!
