David Crane Running Colt IAR Infantry Automatic Rifle AR Carbine SBR at NDIA Infantry Small Arms Systems Symposium 2011 Range Day Shoot 10 <!  :en  >DR Action Video! Colt IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle) 5.56mm NATO Mag Fed AR: Light Machine Gun/Squad Automatic Weapon (LMG) Proposed Replacement Fired on Full Auto at the Range!<!  :  >DefenseReview (DR) had a lot of fun shooting the Colt IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle) at the Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center (CAJMTC) firing range at during the 2011 International Infantry & Joint Services Small Arms Systems Symposium, Exhibition & Firing Demonstration Range Day shoot on May 26, 2011. It’s just a fun gun to shoot.

The Colt IAR is essentially a 5.56x45mm NATO (5.56mm NATO)/.223 Rem. select-fire mag-fed AR that’s a proposed light machine gun replacement weapon. It operates via direct gas impingement (DGI) and utilizes a heat sink to reduce barrel heating under extended full-auto fire. Defense Review first covered the Colt IAR in late October 2008.

The Colt IAR has a pretty high cyclic rate of fire (ROF) that would appear to be in the 900-950 rpm range, causing the weapon to give the shooter a constant solid push backward during sustained full-auto fire. You can see this effect in the second Colt IAR video, below. Muzzle rise during full-auto fire is negligible to non-existent, though.

Colt IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle) 5.56mm NATO Mag Fed AR: Light Machine Gun/Squad Automatic Weapon (LMG) Proposed Replacement Fired on Full Auto at the Range!<!  :  >DefenseReview doesn’t know how reliable, accurate, and durable the Colt IAR is under adverse conditions and high round count. DR would be interested in conducting a side-by-side comparitive test between the Colt IAR and FERFRANS HVLAR (High Volume Light Automatic Rifle a.k.a. High Volume Light Assault Rifle), which is gas piston/op-rod-driven and utilizes the patented Ferfrans RRS/DSAS (Rate Reduction System/Delayed Sear Activation System) to lower the cyclic rate of fire (ROF) below 700 rpm for enhanced full-auto controllability and weapon life. Hopefully, we can make the side-by-side comparison test happen, at some point.

The Colt IAR and FERFRANS HVLAR can both utilize the new SureFire MAG5-60 and MAG5-100 HCM (High Capacity Magazine) quad-stack box mags, Armatac SAW-MAG (double-drum) and SAW-Lite (drum) mags, MWG 90-Rounder snail drum mag, and any/all 4179 STANAG 30-round AR (AR-15/M16) magazines.
