    I do remember when we were on the shooting range with our Ag3F2's and had to share it with a troop of new guard conscripts, when it was our turn to shoot you could see that they were shocked of the difference in sound and/or power
    Some of the older guard have been negative towards it, a lot of our doctrine has been to fight in dense forests so the extra penetration of the 7.62 will be missed.

    Most conscripts are happy with it, though a lot of them are CoD kiddies(Every time I hear someone say it's like an m4 I want to cry).
    I haven't heard any bad things from our professional battallion(tmbn), Seems like every time they're in contact they have DMR's, GMG's and M2's so even more 7,62 might be redundant.
    Our SOF forces have been using C8's and G36k's until now and I believe they're very pleased with the transition.

    Though, The plans to exchange my beloved MG3 into a minimi are horrible!

    Although there's a general discussion topic about this, I though I'd post this great news here as well

    We're buying upgrades and new CV9030's for 10 billion Norwegian Kroner (about 1.7 billion USD).
    Seeing as most of the CV90s are 20 years old, it's about time.

    Right you are sir. They tried out the HK416 for CQB but it lacked the heavy barrel the Diemaco had.
    So they went back to the C8's fast. But on some of the pictures you see what looks like HK417

    What?!

    Don't comment unless you actually know what you are talking about.

    There are specific reasons why Army SOF are not using the HK416 system as of yet. The one you state is not it.

    I just stated something I have read elsewhere, and they are using the C8's still, even though the HK416 was implemented in the Norwegian army as of 2008.

    So that's 4 years of not equipping FSK with the HK416. And whether or not the heavy barrel is the sole reason why they haven't changed I can't say for sure.

    I'm not trying to come across like an expert, because I don't know for sure, you're right about that. But instead of being one of those guys who just poinst out what's wrong. how about you try to inform why?

    Where did you read that the reason was the lack of a heavy barrel? And how does that play a part in CQB?

    The reason Army SOF isn't using the HK416 yet is because they wanted to wait until whatever issues the new system had, were found out and fixed. There haven't been many issues, but the few that there have been are being fixed as we speak. Also, they still have C8's available, and they are using up the remaining stocks before changing.

    Also, they have been equipped with them and they have used them. That is why they said "we'll wait".

    Well, I can't say that the information is credible, but found it on a wikipedia entry.

    The heavy barrel can take a beating, the thicker chromed barrel gives you more accuray as the barrel moves less when fired. And the barrel don't heat up as fast and as much making sustained fire over longer periods easier. And possible deformations due to heat build up is not an issue.

    But again I'm no expert so why that makes it better or not in CQB I'm not sure. So if I'm wrong I stand corrected!

    But why they don't just equip the HK416 10'' versions with a heavier barrel beats me.
