AAI Corp. recently showed off the latest version of its Lightweight Small Arms Technology light machine gun at Modern Day Marine 2012. The new version has a shortened barrel and a folding, telescoping stock. LSAT is a U.S. Army program to cut the weight of its light machine guns and ammunition by up to 50 percent. The weapon weighs only nine pounds and fires 5.56mm case-telescoped ammunition.

    Okay, if they can get 7.62 to work with a short barrel and the lightweight polymer cases... I'm ready to go back and hump that baby up the TVD! Sure would beat the M-60 I carred in Ranger School!

    The AAI LSAT barrel change mechanism will not work out; because, the button that has to be pressed to release the barrel will be too hot to tuch even with lether glove on.
