Whether in a development stage, or for special operators, or currently in service, what are some notable military NFA weapons you like?

I find the KRISS Vector a very interesting SMG. Looks aside, it's a beautiful machine. Firing .45 with hardly any recoil, and at 1,200 Rounds per minute.

A rifle/carbine I really like is the ACR. Not sure who exactly makes it, but Magpul, Remington, and Bushmaster all have credit to the design. Has features that make it stand out from any AR-based weapon, the charging handle is right up front, which seems more ergonomic that reaching at the back of the receiver. You keep your fore-hand right where it should be. And then the uniquely folding stock, which, when folded, the rifle becomes only 26" long in overall length. A short barrel carbine variant folds to 19.5".

The KRISS conceptually is a really neat firearm. I've had the semi-auto versions come through the shop and they seem really bulky and off balance though, but the weight paired with their recoil reduction probably keeps it right on spot during full auto fire.

I like the H&K MP7 (4.6x30). The combination of the oddball caliber and short stroke gas piston make it stand out from other SMG's to me. It's definitely top of my "I'd love to test it" list. I'm not usually a fan of the "full auto" category but I'd make an exception for that and a couple others.

Well, my personal favorite will always be the good old AK-47. But as for modern weapons, I'm still kind of partial to the FN P90. One of these day I'll get a chance to fire a real one instead of the boring civilian non-SBR/non-FA ones.

I just like big bullets! M-240, or the H&K G36

What about the .458 Socom carbines? What a gnarly round... from 250-600 grains... :eek:
Very popular deer hunting round here in Indiana. Silly lawmakers wrote the law defining cartridge dimensions, expecting that .357 Mag, .44 Mag, and .45 Colt would be main rounds used. They forgot how ingenuitive Americans are. :D

For me it is the HK M320. I actually zeroed mine and I had a couple witnessed, confirmed hits at 200 meters. By hits I mean the round could have failed to explode and my target would still be out of the fight.

Spectacular weapon.

VSS Vintorez is a pretty cool Russian sniper rifle. Has just an 8" barrel, with compensator, and the rest is the integral suppressor. Supposed to be a very effective design for keeping noise to a minimum. As well as the specially designed Subsonic 9x39 round. Wiki says it's effective range is 600 meters. Although I'm not sure how well ballistics go for a 260 grain bullet going 900 fps

In that case how about Mr. Browning`s AWSOME .50 M2. Or the Russian answer, the 12.7mm Dishka ( I know that is the wrong way to spell it ). The 120mm main gun on an Abrams is hard to beat though. I love when things go BOOM!:D

the FN ps90 is pretty cool, 50 rd magazine and very compact, fully ambidextrous, but the ammo is really hard to find here in IL. I like my ak-74, its fairly light, accurate enough for me, the ammo is cheap and available in large quantities,(steel core FTW). i would like to put a slide fire or bumpski stock on it just for kicks. My bullpup ak 47 is nice too, but the magazines are harder to change because of the bull pup stock. drum mag works fine though :)

I bought a 300 BLKout that I like a lot. I don't get to shoot it very often because of ammo availability. If I didn't reload it would probably stay in the safe. I think my next choice would be a AK 47

I would have to say the Barrett 50 BMG, because not only will it kill the threat at a very long distance but it will kill the threats vehicle also. The only thing that would make it better is if it shot exploding rounds.
