Here's a Stoner 63 being trialed, I guess trialed, by a unknown unit of the 41st Infantry's separate expermental/test companies under the Army's Combat Development Command at Hunter/Ligget California circa 1968-69, these units were based nearby at Fort Ord. I gather these were the final trials for what would be the Army's designation of the Stoner 63A, the XM207 in 1970.

thats about as close as you can get to owning a XM177E2 in a semi auto version.

 

they experimented with several different variations, like these shown here with the chopped down buttstock and hanguards, and extra short barrels.

 

I prefer to use the 20 rd mags on a carbine, because it makes the rifle a little lighter, compact, easier to use in confined space, being able to shoot easier from the prone or off a table with a shorter mag.
