    The m4 will have to be replaced at some point and looking at these pictures:
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/ground/oicw-mwsf.htm,
    And reading several reviews, I think It is a worthy replacement.

    Pff the famas is the best ct rifle.

    they should replace the m4 with the xm8, and then the xm8 with the FN Scar.

    so in conclusion wolfenstein 3d sucks.

    The M4A1 is one of the main weapons for the NAVY S.E.A.L. . It wouldn't be counter strike source with out the m4. If you want the x8 i'm sure that theres a model of one on a website.

    :D

    In 2010 They will be using a Fully devoloped F2000 Assault Rifle. With a scope that can calculate distance windspeed.....etc It has a grenade launcher built in that shoots a smart grenade, and normal grenades projectiles. The battery life in the gun is like 2 years or more. If you wish to know more about the rifle watch the history channel. :)

    WTF is the poing in having 3 identical (accuracy and dmg wise) rifles in a goddamn game? GET SKINS FFS!

    if they were actually different then fair enought but having three identical rifles that look different is retarded.

    What i say is just upgrade the m4......like the m16....m16a2 a4.... it may be light weight b ut is ugly if i had to choose i would never choose that gun over the m4......ugly future gun shouldnt repalce the m4a1 when they can make a m4a2 with specs of the xm8 but same orginal model.... like the ak's series....keep the old powerful popular gun alive and living

    Just get a skin man. No need to have two very similar guns in the game.

    If you ask me, they need another Machine Gun, besides the M249. But I'll leave that for another topic...

    Do any of you realize that The XM8 project has been suspended indefinately?And more then likely it is dead? The reason you ask? Because the U.S Military finds it useless to pay millions of dollars on a Rifle that fires the same caliber bullet as the M4. Plus The default magazine holds the same # of bullets as the m4. The only difference between Xm8 and The m4? The fact that it is easily modified. It can be turned into a Light MG (100 rnd drum mag and bipod) or A sniper variant (with a bipod and 10 rnd mag plus an extended barrel. Also with a 10x scope "I think it is. not sure bout the scope tho") or a grenade launcher attachment (a m320 grenade launcher that is side loaded). Of course there are things that make the XM8 better then the m4. But they are not good enough to make it The Us militaries SI rifle. So it makes sense for valve to leave the m4 as the ct's main weapon. Plus it wouldnt make sense to go to the buy menu and see "XM8" as a choice to buy. Because The "X" means experimental. So you may as well replace the m4 with a RailGun.

    Actually were prbly gonna wait for the new "land warrior" system to come out for our armed forces. And the XM-29 is almost done with testing which may or may not replace the xm-29

    Kuribo Shoe

    Heres some info on the gun:

    XM-29 Info

    so i thin k that will eventually replace all weapons in the army (m-4, m-16, m-8)
