HK has a new belt fed 7.62 machine gun. Looks like they gave the MG4 the Mk48 treatment (scaled up SAW) - maybe. One of the milphotos poster says no.

I'd still rather have the FN product.

Where the heck are you supposed to put your off hand? That part of the stock looks like a big square.

[HK] STFU! You'll put your support hand on the barrel. You know why? Because you suck and we hate you [/HK]

Looks cool to me.

When can I order one of each, in 5.56 and 7.62?

Go HK!

I was one of the first guys to get an M-240G on Camp Lejeune, it came with no hanguards at all.

Not on top, but it had a lower handguard didn't it?

And yes, from what I hear HK will tell you where to put your hand.

How is the 89 ban HK's fault?

It's not. It is really the ATF's fault for reinterpreting their own enforcement of the 68 GCA.

And I hope HK doesn't hate me

Nothing but the bi-pods. Marine Corps doctrine was that it was to be deployed on the bi-pod, or the tri-pod. No Rambo stuff.

ETA: The Army uses the M-240B(?) and that has handguards.

I was 0341, but in the Pig era on my initial enlistment, so I'm familiar, though not expert, on doctrine. I just thought the initial M240G's had a lower plastic handguard. I remember when the Army started getting SAWs and they objected to it not having a top barrel guard. Same with the M240 - they had to put one on which slows barrel changes. But note the M60E3s we got in the 80s had a forward grip.

We got the G's in the fall of 95', switching from the E3's. Wasn't to excited about the 8(?) extra pounds. I was a 1371, and somehow I ended up going to some armorer's class at Camp Geiger. I was a lance cooly in a room full of staff NCO's, warrant officers, and officers. Not sure how that happened, but 2d CEB I believe was the first to get them on base.

I don't know bro, it must be you, because they like me and I have nice letter from them thanking me for being an HK owner, to prove it, after I sent a frozen rear drum sight up to them to be fixed.

Try harder.

Go look at how the Germans hold/shoot the MG3 and you will figure it out.
