I wonder why they looked to bulk up the M1 to full auto instead of the seemingly obvious alternative. They already had a rifle capable of full auto fire from a BAR magazine.....the BAR. Seems like it would make more sense to slim down the BAR to be more of a standard infantry rifle capable of full auto when needed, than scale up the M1.
