Posted on 07/02/2014 4:20:37 AM PDT by servo1969
Mark Owen, the author of the controversial No Easy Day, has released photos of his gun that was used in the mission that took out Bin Laden.
The former DEVGRU (Seal Team Six) operator posted photos of his gun and as easybakegunclub.com asks, What do you need to Pimp My Rifle?
How does $11,700 dollars sound?

"Rumors are flying around the internet that this glorious and holy Heckler & Koch 416 is the carbine that took down the s- stain Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2010 in Pakistan. According to many sources, the weapon used was a sound supressed H&K 416 5.56x45mm assault carbine with all manner of toys-on-rails (FWS covered the gun hunt back in 2010). More evidence was mounted that the 416 was the correct firearm used, by its appearance in the 2012 film Zero Dark Thirty in the hands of ST6 Operators on the faithful mission and the 2012 book No Easy Day by Mark Owen, who also mentions the use of the H&K 416. For those not in the know, the 416 is an improved various of the Colt M4A1 Carbine and was developed by H&K in America with input from former DELTA Operators. This was a military firearm developed for missions just like Operation: NEPTUNE SPEAR. Since 2005, the H&K 416 has found itself in the hands of SWAT Teams, TIER-1 groups, the US Marines, and various European nations as their primary weapon. So, is this really the gun that killed UBL? This specific H&K 416 was outed by none other than former DELTA Operator Larry Vickers, who helped with the 416 development project. To me, and I am a REMF, this assault carbine looks correct for the perimeters of the mission and other pics of TIER-1 used 416s. If this is indeed the gun that took down UBL, than it needs to be an museum." - William http://futurewarstories.blogspot.com/2014/03/fws-news-feed-is-this-gun-that-killed.html
Ohhhhhh, gun porn!!!
is this the one Obama used when he piloted the SR71 then repelled down from the secret helo, wearing a tuxedo, hold a cigar and a martini while directing the other operatives and taking out the guards with precision hip shots and nailing Bin Laden between the eyes before saving the children?
I want one of these for Christmas
Santa are you listening.....????
Nice, but I don’t believe any of the Bin Laden story.
I still remain somewhat skeptical of the OBL raid and his death as presented. Were there any certified photos of the dead OBL? The burial at sea was quite bizarre.
Gun Porn Ping!
“My name is Bama, O-Bama.”
Expensive and hard to get ammo and the H&K price tag. BTW “SEAL Team 6” hasn’t been called DEVGRU for sometime now.
Five years ago I would have told you both how nuts you are. This morning I’m in complete agreement with you. My lifestyle policy is to do and/or believe the exact opposite of what Big Gov says.

you know, I’ve tried to remain as neutral as I could since this bastard got elected, if for no other reason than being able to call myself fair. But the IRS email thing was just so outlandish on a level never before seen, I honestly question every single word that has come from this administration now. I don’t believe a damn word of anything they have said now. It’s become a really bad joke and there isn’t a thing we can do about it. Our employees are robbing us and the cops are laughing about it
That is absolutely, positively, without a doubt...an official, real-life “assault weapon”.
Quick, somebody show it to a liberal...and watch the teeth-gnashing, screaming Mimi, epileptic seizure, crying tears of hate rampage begin...
Neither do I.
Agreed, it’s like we’re in the twilight zone.
It was 2011.
You know yer gonna go blind...;-)
Ahm jus sayin’...
where is that “thingy that flips up?”
I saw this article on the Easy Bake Gun Club site last week.
It kinda inspired me to make the plunge into building my first AR.
Is the H&K piston operated?
That gun is worth a lot more than 11 thou to the new Caliph.
Plenty of “reasonably” priced 5.56 around here.
EoTech would be about 7-800 for the NVG capable one. I cant see DEVGRU using non NVG optics.
I have gone backward on my M4’s. I took off all the ACOG’s and lasers. Makes it easier to quick fire when hunting hogs at night. I would like a suppressor though.
The 416 SSDI is not fond of common 5.56mm.
I showed the picture to Senator DiFi who was chairman of the intel committee when he was taken down and she said it doesn’t have a bayonet lug so it can’t be the real thing.
LOL!!! but it’s still BLACK AND SCARY LOOKING...
PS- it’s not a bayonet lug it’s a fingernail cleaner holder;)
I’ll trade Ya work for dealing with ChampVA/Mediscare/MedsbyMail mess I’m trying to get fixed.
I’m in contact with both House and Senate offices to see if I can speed up this SNAFU Fix for GMa’s meds.
Are there feeding or extraction issues to expect with a pistol with a 10.5" carbine length gas port barrel and a pistol buffer tube? Feeding it with SS109/M855 surplus. Anyone?
The article is about an HK 556a1 which is chambered for 5.56
Do they use different load or powder? They used to load H335 which is what I load.
I was told that that is a rude gesture...Flipping anything up is considered socially unacceptable...
But personally gratifying...;-)
