Yes, and it kicks more (to me) in full-auto than the M-16. I was not impressed (but only shot one mag).

Not really a "reveal"

Basically. The Army, Delta and Seal team 6 were all fielding the hk when politics ended the Army's testing. Seal team 6 (and Delta, I think) used their own "funds" to purchase their own hk's. I remember reading that somewhere some time back.

For some reason some people seem to think a SIG Sauer P226 was used. The HK makes a lot more sense...

It's really not even clear that the Seals are still using 226's..I think some teams are still buying them..but I have heard scuttlebutt that Devgru(ST6) has been using the HK45 as of late over the 226. All of the photos I have seen from Devgru lately that have been published, featured them rocking HK416's, often with AAC cans. So to me, it would make the most sense that that's what they used. It doesn't really matter what they used though..the asshole is dead. Let's go kill the next one.

+1


Saw a documentary segment comparing M4 and HK416 a long time ago. All I remember is the product tester being able to immediately fire the HK416 upon emerging from a ditch filled with mud and then again from water.

I've never fired one but I do know it kicks more because of the mass of the operating rod. On the plus side the chamber stays cleaner and it does not get as hot.

Like ya'll say to everyone, if it don't have the pic's, it didn't happen. With us topping 8K including those general citizens, Firefighters and Police who charged into burning buildings along with the Military we've lost, we deserve that. If they can show dead or wounded American Soldiers, why can't they show his dead A$$?
