TFBTV – What is the SIG MCX RSAR? (New SOCOM PDW)

SIG Sauer was recently awarded a 5-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract valued at $5 million to provide the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) with a new Reduced Signature Assault Rifle. The MCX RSAR is essentially the MCX Rattler in .300BLK but with a slightly longer barrel, different gas system, and packaged with a SIG SL-series suppressor, making this, perhaps, the ultimate PDW. The search for a weapon to fit the RSAR requirement has been ongoing since 2017. SOCOM describes the RSAR as a ‘PDW system [which] will allow Operators to have maximum firepower in a concealable weapon.’
(Some copy lifted from Matthew Moss’ article on the RSAR, https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2022/10/18/ussocom-sig-rattler-reduced-signature-assault-rifle/ )

One correction from the video: The MCX series was actually developed out of the LVAW program, not the other way around. In other words, the LVAW actually pre-dates the formal MCX series.
