They almost did in the early 90s. After testing several models, they didn't see the performance increase they were looking for and decided that swapping wasn't worth the cost.

The L85 is shit.

The politics behind a military adopting a new weapon for standard US military issue are crap.

The M-16 is better. The M-4 is better. Why would we switch from better to worse, then pay to retrain soldiers?

When an American company makes a fully metal bullpup with only plastic grips where it's non-structural, maybe it'll be something worth considering. Until then, nope.

Bullpups are cool and all, and it's nice to have a large barrel in a small package, but they're not necessary.
>>
>>28540208
A1 yes. Problems sorted out on A2 and they are using A3 now. Most soldiers like it and tge only complaints are that it's heavy and can only be used left handed

Because it's compact and that's where your eye aligns.

There's no such thing as an A3, you div. The new rails and foregrip just replace the plastic handguard, I've done it myself. The actual rifle is exactly the same.

It's back heavy, which is fairly uncomfortable. It's almost an alien thing to hold.

You go from holding nothing, to holding an L85, and you'll immediately think to yourself "I want to get off of this ride."

The United States military is large than the entire EU forces combined. Figure out how much it will cost to re-equip the US military (army, marines, navy, air force, and coast guard to include reserves and national guards for all branches) with a different rifle and ask yourself if the questionable improvement over the M16/M4 is worth that cost.
