It has recently passed stringent US Coast Guard tests for an automatic weapon that can be used for anti-materiel purposes. The weapon's upper assembly will fit onto any military specification AR15 or M16 lower receiver assembly with no further modifications. The LW15.499 weighs 2.8kg without magazine, which loaded weighs a further 0.45kg. Three magazines are offered: 10, 12 or 60 rounds.
Recently, the author has learned (from a highly trusted industry source) that Leitner-Wise's failure to deliver a gun to us may be due to some kind of reliability/functioning or durability problems with the Mini-.50 that the company could be experiencing. However, to date, DefRev hasn't received any solid evidence, i.e. proof, of any problems with the Mini-.50. That said, DefRev also hasn't received any proof or confirmation that there are indeed any Mini-.50's currently employed by/deployed with any federal LE agencies or any branch or unit of the U.S. Armed Forces. We had heard reports that the the U.S. Coast Guard was purchasing a large number of Mini-.50's, but we don't know if any purchase contract actually went through, i.e if the U.S. Coast Guard actually has purchased and acquired any Mini-.50's to date.
