Another rebarreled/rebedded MAS 36 for sale in December 2017 in #Idlib. This one again utilises a 7.62x51 barrel from a MG, unsure which. It came with the optic pictured and is also threaded for a suppressor. Quite a decent paint job! $500.

Tell me please, what is the name of this weapon, ASH-12(АШ-12) or SHAK-12(ШАК-12)?

In different sources, these weapons are named differently. These are two similar models or they have different cartridges.

Thank you)

   According to an interview with company representative during one of recent expos filmed by Lazarev, weapon itself (an actual assault rifle) is called ASh-12, while whole system (rifle + accesories like silencers, optics, etc.) is called ShAK-12 (K stands for Komplex/Complex/System).

Sig Sauer unveiled a new version of its popular MCX series of rifles, which are derived from the AR-15/M16 pattern, at AUSA as an NGSW contender to replace the M4. To help meet the ammunition weight requirements, the Swiss-headquartered gunmaker built ammunition to the Army's specifications using a hybrid case that is only partially brass and has either a steel or aluminum bottom portion. The company also unveiled a belt-fed machine gun in the same caliber as a possible M249 replacement.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
