I would love to have one chambered for 6.8mm.
Interesting! I need to look at these. Seems H&K has abandon the roller lock delayed blow back action for a gas operated. The thing looks more like a M-4 than the old H&K 93...
It is actually a gas PISTON operated system, that keeps the gas out of the action.
There are companies that are seeling these types of uppers for AR-15 rifles.
HK has has a fully (messy) gas operated system in its G36 and SL8 for more than a few years.
I just want one that fires a 6.5mm round, then I will be ready - Jihad that! :)
HK still sells lots of roller-locked MP5s, but cops are currently trading them in for M4s, because whatever the military (the real heroes) are using is "cooler" or "badder".
Yes I have read all about the HK-416. Heckler and Koch is not very civilian friendly when it comes to selling semi-automatic firearms to the common citizen.
