:laughing4 Right back at ya, ya sunovabitch! I did basic maybe six years ago, and the A-2s we had even back then were worn down into genuine pieces of ****. We're talking maybe two mm of play between the two receivers. It made qualifying really interesting. I would have killed someone for a brand new rifle.

It was a brand new, significantly different rifle design being used with a different cartridge than for which is was originally designed in an extreme environment where it was not sufficiently tested. Of course the weapon had problems. Duh!
People also conveniently forget you can carry twice the amount of ammo for a 5.56 than you can for a 7.62 rifle at roughly the same weight.

You should only have noticed any difference if you were cleaning it, and if you were tracking jams. It's a better rifle for sure but the changes aren't obvious from the outside.
You must have done basic at benning, I can't imagine any other IET school in the army having the funds to provide privates with A-4s and ACOGs.

No, I did it at Fort Lost in the Woods. I spent almost all of basic with an A2 from roughly 20000BC, and qualified on it as well. She slept in my hooch with me at all the FTXs, and kept me company at night in the barracks, as well. The A4s were only for Optics, night firing, and some of the ARM we did.
I was only mentioning the way it shot. It is definitely an improved weapon, just not necessarily in terms of accuracy. Which is fine, because the A2s were plenty accurate (against paper terrorists).
