    I do however, firmly believe that rate-of-fire is no substitute for marksmanship.

    Having military experience but no combat experience I will defer to those that do.
    Remember--Assault rifle implies full auto. Semi auto is not assault rifle. The USMC always promoted marksmanship over volume of fire. That was the concept with the M1 Garand and the M14---you had the power and range of 30-06 and 308 so it was easy to reach out to 800 yrds. In Vietnam era because of Guerrilla war tactics and jungle they promoted Zones of fire where heavy volume was just sent downrange into a zone ----that is why they switched to the M16 and the smaller 5.56 so you could carry lots of ammo. You can hump 400 rds easy with 5.56. Try humping 400 rds of 30-06 or 308 ?

    BAR came out in 1917 and Thompson 45 came out in 1915. BAR was 20rds 3006 and Thompson 45acp had 30rds with a 50rd and 100rd drum.

    Wow, this threads been going a while. I doubt anyone who has been in a combat/ contact would trade a magazine fed self loader for a lever. Its not even close. Can a lever do some that a semi auto can do? Sure. Can a self loader magazine fed do everything a lever can and more...
