MCX-Spear – Now available!
Bought your new assault rifle yet? If not, you’re in luck!
You know how the cops are wearing that pesky body armor which makes it more difficult after you write your manifesto and go on your mass shooting spree and its difficult for your AR-15 style weapon to penetrate that body armor?
Not to worry! There’s a new weapon available!
A gun company is marketing a powerful new rifle to civilians.
SIG Sauer’s MCX-Spear is the civilian version of the US Army’s NGSW-R (Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle), The Daily Beast reported.
The company said that the gun was “the most innovative and advanced AR platform in the world,” which is a “near match” to its NGSW-R submission, which won the contract for the US Army program this year.
“The MCX-Spear was developed with direct input from US warfighters to provide more power, distance, and accuracy to replace the current M4 rifle platform,” the company’s website says.
In a press release, Ron Cohen, president & CEO of SIG Sauer, Inc, said that the MCX-Spear going on sale was “a rare opportunity for passionate consumers to own a piece of history.”
“The revolutionary FURY ammunition is the most technically advanced leap in smalls arms ammunition in over 150 years, this turns your intermediate rifle platform into magnum performance without the added weight or length while still using 20-round magazines,” Cohen said.
The gun can tear through body armor at extended ranges, according to The Daily Beast.
Yes! This is just what we need to bring to the capital next time!
“It’ll shoot through almost all of the bulletproof vests worn by law enforcement in the county right now,” Ryan Busse, a former firearms company executive and senior policy analyst with the Giffords Law Center, told the outlet.
“This is a weapon that could defeat any body armor, any planned body armor that we know of in the future,” then-Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told the Army Times in 2019, per The Daily Beast. “This is a weapon that can go out at ranges that are unknown today.”
“While AR-15s are lighter and more maneuverable than MCX-Spears, which might make them favorable to mass shooters in enclosed locations such as classrooms, bullets from the latter can hit much harder over greater distances. the gun could help mass shooters become “a long-range sniper with an AR-15-style gun.”
Nice! I want one!
SIG Sauer also makes the semiautomatic AR-15-style rifle used in the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016 that left 49 people dead.
Busse told the Daily Beast that it was unsurprising to see the gunmaker marketing a civilian version of the weapon, as this would massively increase its profit margins with much lower effort. It is often a “pain” for gun manufacturers to meet military requirements what with deadlines and on-time delivery requirements.
Linking the firearm to the military is a large part of the advertising.
“It’s like, ‘Buy the gun that all the military special operators use…forget basic training, just become a military badass.”
One of the dealers said that the arms manufacturer sent out 2,500 and 5,000 of the weapons, and they sold out quickly, despite the hefty manufacturer’s suggested price tag of $7,999.
A customer service representative for SIG Sauer told the outlet that more weapons would soon be shipped to gun stores at a lower price than the “first editions” models.
“I know it’s coming,” the representative told the outlet. “We’re trying to get these things out as fast as we can. Get as many guns as we can out the door.”
The perfect Christmas gift to find under the tree after the family comes home from worshipping Jesus.
