The M-110 is a POS. We are actively trying to get it replaced with a similar, more reliable carbine variant. Talk of heavy cannibalization within units that had them were reported. A good piece of advice? Follow the Brits. They picked up some nice Lewis Machine & Tool equipment. The U.S. civilian sector can attest to how well those DMRs run. It's designation is the L-129A1.

To equip some elite-sniper units with them after Afghanistan. Just like they did with the G82.
The rest of the army will get a shorter HK417 in a few years as a 2nd standard rifle next to the G36 in a few years probably. Just look for G27k. ^^
German army cannot get anything straight and honest seemingly. Just like equipping Tigers with useless/disfunctional rocket launchers on the outer pylons when the defense-minister visits the unit.
Basically everything I've read so far about the G27k is that this is a rifle for specialized units - and certainly not to be used as the standard alternative weapon for regular units. Ironically, a source that's pushing for the G27k to become a second standard rifle is HK itself - for obvious reasons.The rest of the army will get a shorter HK417 in a few years as a 2nd standard rifle next to the G36 in a few years probably.

I can't be the only one who wishes there was at least one other German inventor/developer/producer of firearms to actually compete with H&K for those contracts? It's almost like they aren't even trying anymore nowadays. They've pretty much given up on the G36 platform and now seem focused on promoting & selling what amounts to yet another Stoner-clone.
Bullcrap. Otherwise they wouldn't improve the G36 with the development of the IdZ-ES variant.
soldier with two guns(pistols)??
