WRSA likes this machine gun (details here). My experience (attempting to exchange email among other things) is that H&K has a rather elitist attitude. Furthermore, like so many firearms manufacturers, they make many of their weapons systems only for military and law enforcement.
Okay, nice machine gun. But here is a fact which bears mentioning. American engineering is second to none. Things like open bolt versus closed bolt, mechanisms to cool the gun, head spacing, spring constants, gas operation design, component materials (among many others) are all variables that can be used by entrepreneurial engineers and gunsmiths to design a better weapon.
Do you want to know why that doesn’t happen in America? There is no incentive. The largest gun market in America is civilian, and as you know the manufacture and sale of newly designed or built fully automatic weapons has been illegal to anyone except LEOs since the abomination called the Hughes Amendment.
William J. Hughes was a democrat from New Jersey in case you were wondering.
