Also any one ever heard of Lasar Bullets?

"Laser Bullets" are a special bullet, specially designed for sniper rifles. If you need a dead-on shot, buy these bullets. They consist of a standard bullet, with a minute laser and power supply embedded within it. There is a shatter-resistant dome shaped piece of glass over the tip of the round. The laser is turned on when it is chambered. It has an approximate power duration of 3 minutes. The laser's effecitve visible range is just over 800 meters, but it can be seen up to 3,000 meters with at least a 12x scope. Comes in a box of 20.

Thats not actually a bullet. Its a laser module in the shape of a bullet. You put it in the chamber to zero in the sights, or practice your point-and-shoot targetting.

Great weapon, but here is just something to note:

In the video, when he is firing the weapon on full auto, there is the sound of a continuous burst. However when you look closely, you see that the weapon is being fired in short bursts. Just a little bit of phoney sound.

wait..its an impressive gun and all..but did they say GAS powered? Um...what if you run out of gas...get a leak...or your tank gets shot and blows up..or am i just a newb being stupid?

Not a newb,just another opportunity to learn something new. Gas operated,is where the gas created from firing a bullet is used to push back the action to allow another round to enter the chamber.

Better yet,an actual explanation here

There is a big difference in laying a weapon down and burying it and dragging it thought the sand. OR operating it in a sand storm.

Big diff. between the H2O test and a sea assault.

This weapon is impressive, but like any other weapon, it needs to be fielded in battle to see its true potential.

Shattered OUT...

exactly, thats the problem... the military is being too cheap to put it to use. they should have soldiers volunteer to use it and report back, that thing is just awesome. its like the person in charge of arms has a fetish for the way the m16 looks or something, ordering a bunch of m4s and whatnot that are apparently way less reliable?

Hey, thanks a lot. I was picturing an air soft tank or paint ball co2 tank and thinking "well that doesn't make much sense" lol. But yeah, thats for the clarification.

I don't know if this has been linked here on ATS before. A bit of history info about the 416.


Better than M4, but you can’t have one
www.armytimes.com...

Delta Force worked with a gun maker to come up with a better weapon. The 416 is now considered in many circles to be the best carbine in the world, but the regular Army is sticking with the M4 and M16.

...

Replacing the M16 family right now would cost too much money, Benning officials say.

“The truth is, to change out a fleet takes a tremendous amount of money,” Radcliffe said, referring to the task of outfitting a million soldiers with new weapons.

The HK416 is the new standardrifle for the army in my home nation Norway, it replaces the Ag3 and they are going to buy 8200 of these to begin with.

Would you risk doing any of that with an M16 or M4?

Where did you find an HK416 for $975???? I'll buy it for that price...... well since I have all this money burning a hole in my pocket


Awesome looking gun though and if Delta helped with the creation I am sure it is a pretty useful gun.
