Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
That link is not a link at all. Googling for this first led into a vast echo chamber of gun-bloggers quoting each other, but not actually linking the DHS solicitation HSCEMS-12-R-00011.Here is one of the better discussions:http://wramsite.com/forum/topics/department-of-homeland-security-sport-rifle-ar-15-suitable-forAnd here is the specification section of the actual solicitation:https://www.fbo.gov/utils/view?id=09c3d5e933bc24416b752b57294a17b3I don't know how long this will stay up, so you might want to save it. See Section 3.1 for the actual quote: "DHS and its components have a requirement for a 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters".
Thanks for the link to the file markm.
YEah, it's a PDW-as-term-of-art.I recalled looking at the spec in the request, and an M4 won't meet it - too long.A max length of 20", folded/retracted? M4's a lot longer than that.It'll have to be a bullpup or an AK pattern or something, or piston AR with a side-folder.(Normally I think of PDWs as being in a smaller caliber anyway, like the P90.)
