It can't take THAT long to replace a clip. Given all the other benefits, I think it's a good replacement. Still, a much larger clip would undoubtedly be an improvement.

but the purpose of the Automatic Rifleman is to provide constant suppressive fire to cover the movements of the other Marines. The threat of death causes the enemy to stay in position, disengage entirely, and, if nothing else, stop shooting back.

reloading time is actually longer than the time it would take the M27 to empty 30 round clips, even with some serious fast reloading skills. Sure some time is saved if the M27 can fire from the open-bolt but I don't remember seeing that on its wikipedia.

With an XM25, I don't think you'll have to get much closer.

this isn't the Army we're talking about. We're talking about people that actually fight.

Maybe they should LOWER the rate of fire, then...

Perhaps different RoF settings?

Yeah... right. I'd really hate to implement a system like that, because it would (in all likelihood) screw up what makes the weapon so hard to jam. And suppressing fire works best at higher RoFs.
