   With recent Chinese new rifle and now this we are reaching an HK singularity event when all guns will look like 416s, kek.


It looks more like a Masada/ACR than a 416 tbh.




Ak 4D aka the Spuhr'ed up DMR variant of the Ak 4(G3) that the Swedes have started using as a stop gap solution. Note that this one doesn't have the old Hensoldt Fero Z24 4×24 telescopic sight that these rifles are normally issued with.

   PKP disassembly. Also shows barrel swap between PKP and PKM. Around 13:00 shows 4 holes in frontal part of the barrel, including 4 holes in muzzle brake/flashhider that work as part of cooling system. Flashhider/muzzle device in attached to barrel/barrel shroud. Any addon to muzzle device (suppressor for example) will decrease cooling of the barrel and increase groups size.

      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?
