Question Quick hypothetical question.

Should the U.S. Armed Forces adopt the FN F2000, to say, tomorrow, what would its denomination be? I was thinking something along the lines of Mk-xxx rather than the current M-xxx. What number you think that would be assigned?

#1: The F2000 will not be adopted by the United States Military as a service rifle... Current "mag under the stock" bullpups are not the style of weapons that we use, or will use anytime soon.

#2 As a general rule, M## weapons tend to belong to the army, whereas Mk-### series weapons tend to belong to the Navy, Marine Corps, SOCOM and, sometimes, Air Force... That isn't how the rule works, just the general result of the system in place... Any service rifle will have an M## designation.


A new service rifle would probably be the M17, assuming they stuck with traditional naming rules and that there aren't any black weapons using that designation. A new carbine would probably be the M5.

If it's an untradtitional design, however, odd things can happen... Also, thanks mostly to the Air Force, a lot of traditional naming rules are being ignored... It could be almost anything.

And judgeing from my current service rifle. By the time they get to A - 4 it usually only malfunctions about 5 - 8 times per mag when you need it most.

M17 is the designated codex for the bushmaster bullpup. As a publicly titled patent, it would then be probably relegated to the generation-- so, say, M17A2.

I was thinking more of M-18, since there has been the gap from M-14 to M-16, and M17 is registered. They could use M-17 only if they would REALLY adopt the Bushmaster Bullpup! As for the "Ax" suffix, that stands for the modification/improvement number, so M17-A2 would literally be a military-adopted version of the Bushmaster Bullpup at its second or third generation. No, man.
