Very Impressive and stable platform. It can be fired from virtually any position including standing. Virtually no muzzle rise with a 7.62!

As a former machine gunner, I am in awe of these new German machine guns. Good grief.... Amazing rates of fire. If only they had them on the Eastern Front.... I would damn sure hate to be "down range" facing these weapons.

And they're planning on cutting back our military here, I sure hope they know what they're doing.... I am astounded at the ease in changing the barrels as well as the very low recoil forces it has.

This link is to a video of the new German Army machine gun. Copy the below link and paste in your search engine and watch the machine operate.

HK 121

It seems to have about the same recoil as the 5.56.

Does it weight 40 pounds so that's why the recoil looks like its non-existent?

do you have "small pounds" ? I think the weight is 9,9 kg, so about 20 pounds would be closer?
