    H&K Wins CSASS competition for the M110E1

    HK has won the competition for the U.S. Army's Compact M110 system, the Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) program.

    The OSS Suppressor and HK's reverse keymod are interesting choices. Is this the first "official" adoption of Keymod by the U.S. Military ?

    I'm not a suppressor expert but I've shot an OSS on a select fire Tavor as was impressed.

    Does anyone know if this rifle will use HK's proprietary 417 mags or will it use the existing M110 (KAC/PMAG) pattern mags ?

    Supposedly, Sphur makes a HK lower that accepts KAC mags?

    Will this rifle be made in Germany? Could this help push HK towards production in the U.S.?

    I'm guessing they just fucked up on the reverse Keymod thing (the picture shown).

    Every pic I've seen of the HK rifle w the OSS can the last couple years has their proprietary, backwards, oversize KM ripoff. Hopefully there is a plan to standardize on something (my vote would be for M-lok but they don't care what I like). Did the RFP have any guidance about attaching accessories? Has anyone even seen the RFP?

    So apparently the HK CSASS uses the 417 mag.

    So now the US military going to have four different 7.62x51mm pattern magazines in the system? (M14, SR-25, SCAR 17, HK417.)

    Maybe it's a Freudian thing; they like their dicks incoming and slightly larger than normal.

    Anyone pick up on this feature? I'm wondering how they did so and if there is a performance or reliability cost. The link is to the HK G28 and their CSASS submission was the G28E1.

    I think that is a spring on the firing pin, not for certain.

    A tiny German leprechaun in the receiver has an accelerometer. When he detects a fall he screams "NOT TODAY LADDIE!" and grabs on to the firing pin for dear life. Over-engineered, heavy, expensive, but effective.






    It's a slow day at work.

    Part of the maintenance routine for the rifle will be injecting 10cc of a good beer into a port on the side of the upper receiver so the tiny German leprechaun will stay alive and motivated.

    Please feel free to start arguing about the best brand of beer to inject in your rifle now. We've done the lube thing to death.
