New Colt Battle Rifle in 7.62 NATO?

21 Sep

Soldier Systems and Defense Review are both reporting on a Colt battle rifle in 7.62 NATO designated the CM901. It will be a modular rifle/carbine/SBR (short barreled rifle) design and will be backwards compatible with existing 5.56 AR uppers.

To quote David Crane of Defense Review:  “If the CM901 was able to excite a Tier 1 operator, we thought it must be pretty cool. And, as it turns out, it is. It’s very cool. The CM901 is pretty badass, actually.”

Stay tuned for updates and photo’s on the CM901 as they become available…..
