So... yeah.  The pistol will be available in striker fired and hammer fired versions, I guess.  I think that's a first.

Could you pretty please do a summary of the AEK-971 video?

1) As i understood user can swap striker to hammer in same pistol. At 4:10 to 4:45 he speaks about trigger (?) modules that user can mount/change in the pistol

 

2) Basic stuff about balanced automatics, recoil and how it works.

It seems the G36 Replacement isnt allowed to have any features/technologies that fall under ITAR Rules.

This could kick out the Sig Sauer offer because the magazine and MLOK are US technologies.

Article.

This could explain why HK stays with HKey and not MLOK or even Keymod.
@Sturgeon worth an Article or do you need more sources?

Belgian Snipers won the Best Sniper Competition in Grafenwöhr.

Pictures.

Army Article.

Czech Third. Sweden Second. Seemed to be Belgian Spec Ops because they mustnt be photographed.

From BREN 805s to G28 to Dragunovs and AWPs. But cant find the Belgian gun. Just in the Background too far to say what kind of rifle.

Also some Polish Bullpup Sniper.

The Belgians in the Background. I would say AWP(?).

Sig won a contract to supply MCX rifles to a State Police force in germany to replace MP5s.

 

Also apparently Sig complains in this Press Release that they didnt get the ammo to test the gun with at the KSK rifle trials(!!!) but the winner did have access to the ammo.

 

So Sig MCX didnt win the KSK contract.

What rifles took part  in the Police trial is not clear as of yet.

The complete Press Release but still only in German

Its official H&K won the KSK contract with the HK416A7 or now G95.

No press release as of yet. Maybe he pressed the button to early.

But he writes for the biggest german monthly defence magazin and wrote books about small arms of the german army.

Also he was featured on TFB.
@Sturgeon

Here is the Press Release from the procurment agency.

Edit: crossed out stuff because its official
