    It looks like the same "everything but the kitchen sink" approach that the US military adopted with the M110. All that stuff attached to the weapon does improve its capability but makes the weapon hard to use. For a 600m requirement that thing is way, way overkill. They could have saved a little weight on the optic and ditched that stupid T-1 mount altogether. I'm glad I don't have to carry it.

    Direct gas impingement. Take in mind that our point of view was build from "the other side" experience (we got several M16s captured in Vietnam to test and asses) and different approach to employment of small arms (in favour of massive full auto fire from assault rifles of storming troops).

    1.5MOA guarantee is not to match ammunition but to German military DM111A1/AB22 (FMJ) 147gr round. With match ammunition G28(Z) is sub-MOA rifle.

    With all it’s limitations or overbuilt features, I doubt any soldier will bitch when he gets this beast. Yes, too heavy but a sweet rig. I’d like to have one.

    Did you read rest of my post or just stopped there? No direct impingement rifle was going to go trough standard Warsaw Pact rifle trials (for example for shooting with muzzle clogged with sand) and be enough soldier proof for soviet conscripts. That is why it had bad rap in those parts of the world and this is what I was referring to. Yes, it will work just fine in almost any environment when properly used and maintained by well trained, preferably professional, troops. Happy?

    In it's US incarnation as M110A1 CSASS (G28E) it is much, much lighter than German issue G28. Mostly thanks to idea that M110A1 will use actual match grade ammunition to achieve required accuracy.


    BTW I was recently able to shoot G28 in competition (2 albums, please excuse my poor performance, I'm predominantly run'n'gun shooter up to 100m). Rifle I used was HKs demo rifle made in 2012. It seen lots of use. This thing in this configuration weight (w/a magazine) over 15lb! Did I mention it is heavy?
