The point is that even though *some* uses of rifles benefit from mass 
production, it is unreasonable to expect *all* rifle components to be 
interchangeable. After all, a Lee Enfield is great as a bush rifle, but I 
wouldn't want to use it if I was a sniper.

Sure, but you also know that even though a lot of good things were done with 
the ESIS, many/most *applications* didn't use it.
