I take it we can't interest them in 100,000 nearly new SA80s then?

It does seem a shame if the US is looking to source new carbines that they don't look into a better round than the 5.56mm, but perhaps they cannot face opening that can of worms. Easier to send the troops out with an inferior bit of kit I suppose.
