Noted on AR15

This is from November in reply to a post that the XM8 program was “as good as dead”:

Yep we received a brief today at building 4 (US Army Infantry Hall) at FT Benning, and they said it looks like the M-8 will not happen.

The brief was given by the US Army Infantry school ANCOC 1SG.

A little stale, of course. Not sure what, if anything, it means.

Anyone out there have more?


  1. Since the project was canceled back in 1994, I doubt FMC (or whoever owns the plant now) could easily gear back up to produce them anyway. I’d call it OBE.
