Hindsight is 20/20, back in the shotgun news hayday they had Diemaco LSW (Colt Canada) uppers for a song....memory is fading bit I think they were around $500. Not they are going for $3k...minimum

https://www.coltcanada.com/light-support-weapon.html

Anyway I have been paying with a lower that I stuck an Echo Gen2 trigger in, toying with making something similar to the LSW.

Currently the upper has the following on it;
- Heavy 16" barrel, AAC FH
- PST 1x6
- forearm mounted bi-pod
- IR laser

Thinking of going with a 20" flutted heavy barrel for better cooling and a fixed 3-4 power prismatic scope or maybe an Elcan.

Wish they made something that the barrel could be swapped like the M249 the fightlight seems pretty close.

Trigger seems to keep up with a 200 round belt

Have a couple MP 60 round drums but have not had the pleasure of doing a full drum dump....only a couple mags to test the functionality of the trigger.

I must say, if you have the funds for the FosTech trigger I highly recommend one. Almost as fun as a full giggle switch.

Wish they made one for the semi M249....it would make the $10K price worth it

To me, the main difference is their CHF barrels. Their MRRs and C20s look SWEET! It’s a real pity we can’t get them here.

I love my Diemaco pencil 16" A2 AR upper, made in Canada, forged barrel, scored on accident for like $450.
