    More Springfield/Croatian Love?

    Springfield might have cancelled their SHOT apeparance, but they seem to be teasing a big release for January. Is it the VHS Rifle?

      (I just read) This thing went to trials for the new French service rifle to replace the FAMAS. The French chose the HK 416.

      IF...IF the French chose this as their service rifle, I'd consider getting one (yes, even though it's made in Croatia).

      Interesting! Seems to have a very high height-over-bore on the sights though. I guess the Croats just can't help themselves.

        So what is the rationale for the negativity regarding Croatian made firearms?

          I'm a Xd fanboy so, you won't see any serious negativity from me.

          Dan 0351 is not a fan of the high bore-height of the Xd line. Either that or he thinks the Serbs should have wiped the Croats off the map in order stop the creation of the best line of striker-fired handguns the world has ever seen! I'm not quite sure.

            This is what it was looking to replace:

            There's just too many good companies out there that make fine firearms, and I'm luckily in a position that buying from Brazil, Venezuela, Croatia, etc. isn't a necessity.

            Here's the HS Produkt assembly line that makes the XD and Hellcat..........LOL!

            Yeah, I forgot about how high the FAMAs handle is. The new one is an improvement!

            Are you impugning the work of those fine craftsman. All the best guns are built on the floor. The dirt helps them break-in. It also prevents them from being primadonnas as they know where they came from!

              The original famas is super cool although practically speaking idk what they were thinking with the height of the carry handle. If I remember right there are like less than 300 in the USA and they are big money if you can find one.

                Maybe they were thinking, "We're tall and have long necks, plus we hate to scrunch down our heads and who needs a cheek-weld with a semi-auto?"

                  I've worked very hard at being unwieldy.

                  I'm a big fan of bullpups and have a bunch - being that this IS used in some militaries/police around the world, it's a hard maybe at $1k. Third World Croation plastic for $2000 is a hard NO.

                Too much Croatia/ Springfield bashing going on around here

                Range Time is it time to start a Springfield/ Croatia thread to showcase some of their awesome stuff and show some love???
