US marines armed with German machine guns

American marine with rifle M27


The M27 rifle has successfully passed all tests, and in August last year, the US ILC announced its intention to purchase more than 50 units. The notice of intent indicated that 000 M50 Infantry Automatic Rifles (IAR) produced by the German company Heckler & Koch will be purchased for the Marines. Yesterday it became known that the USMC has officially announced the start of the rearmament process.

M27 IAR - Heckler & Koch 416 rifle in modification for the United States Marine Corps. Thanks to the gas venting system with a short gas piston stroke and a stronger barrel, this model is less maintenance-intensive and is able to withstand high loads (rate of fire, etc.). These qualities made it possible to use the M27 (including in a set with high-capacity magazines) to replace some models of light machine guns. "Warspot".

          Andrei hi This is screaming. Recently, there were documentaries about Sov-Sec and Hunting and Fishing channels about the entire AR-15 family and how mattresses promoted them. lol

          Most likely the Americans have already climbed there and are working under the Germans' roof.

          Screams are not screams!? .. And you would ask for a start, and what x ..... our spetsura (Alpha, Pennant) uses the same M27 ??? ....... By the way, M27 is made on the basis of everything the same M4 !!! PS: And by the way, in America there are firms that produce rifles in terms of quality and reliability no worse than Heckler & Koch ... by the way, POF. Therefore, I think the choice here is trite in price .....

        Yes, and with this torment ... the problem of Western weapons has always been unpretentious. Good and sometimes wonderful weapons, well, categorically did not like dirt, dust, frost and so on ...

          repeat You are not quite right - as long as you fought in Europe, while you drove around in Africa or in South America, everything was "faith buzzing", but as soon as the "rusty Russian tanks" (and Kalashnikov assault rifles) began to loom on the horizon for some reason "suddenly" weapons problems begin laughing .
          This curse is something like that, as long as there are no Russians, everything is wonderful, they win without problems and "the weapon is just wonderful", as soon as we are "nearby" - immediately "the bullets ricocheted from the leaves", "a bad Russian machine gun pierces through a tree and hiding after him an American soldier "and" a wonderful American tank was meanly hit from behind by a rusty Soviet RPG-7 " lol good

    And this after Trump's statements? Americans need less to boast of their "superiority" in everything, and to focus on their automatic small arms, which wish for the best. Heckler & Koch has long established itself in the arms market. In particular, her submachine guns are used in special forces and law enforcement agencies in many countries.

      Gene, hello! hi They love mattresses to loudly and unfoundedly shake the air. And with Heckler und Koch they have a long friendship in terms of shooting.

          And the HK45, HK4 pistols, too, about the MP-7 and HK UMP submachine guns, the sniper PSG-1 should also not be forgotten.

      Rather, the concern really does not belong to the Germans. Well, or not quite Germans.

        The American branch will simply be produced, while here it is - an American resident.

      It seems that these are the same high-powered rifles when you consider how they were pushed and the Germans were sucked in.

    They in Battlefield 3 conducted tests and adopted, because 27 is clearly better lol, because in reality 416 is not particularly better, as is obvious and 27

    well .. all production has long been localized in the pin to the camp
    they have nothing at all can be sold without 30% of the production of parts in the us ..
    those. if you want to sell your weapons - order 30% of the details to the Americans ..
    by the way, before that they had already changed the army pistol of 1911 to take another 1985

      So they, like, changed the Beretta M92F in the troops, I don’t know, really, what. I shot from it ... I didn’t like it. It’s cumbersome, heavy, uncomfortable .. Clumsy, in short. However, it’s a matter of taste .. .

        I shoot from Taurus 92 more precisely. Than from Glock-34 ... paradox Apparently

        a matter of taste.

        And the Beretta was changed mainly because of the caliber and cartridges. The stopping effect is good, but these cartridges are few, individual protection began to appear everywhere, and the weight of the gun to extinguish such a bullet pulse is much higher *. Smith Ibn Wesson couldn’t get her 9mm, so they took Beretta
        ----------------------------------
        ----------
        * Impulse for 45ACP is ~ 4kg * m / s, and for a typical parabellum (9para & on de NATO, etc., I take a classic non-P + cartridge) - from 2,5 to 3,3-3.6 for the heaviest bullets (which are usually apply more in PP)

    paradox apparently

    Well ... why a paradox. Many people pray directly to this Glock. Although, of course, there will be better Berettas. It is both more convenient and easier.

    Chtd. Everything comes to a logical conclusion. Everyone always knew that the best weapons are Russian and German. As a result, we make replicas of the Soviet RPG -7 and AK -47 and arm the marine corps with German rifles.

    Something was sewn on soap. The key benefits are somehow not enough to dilute the hodgepodge with another ingredient. P / S / saw how the U.S. KMP sniper rifle cartridges are purchased individually. I believe that these are very good bullets, but guys, is this too much?

      For snipers as part of a platoon, this is not too much ... Especially if he or you can shoot this cartridge at a distance of 1 km ..... !!!
