You're either referring to the Steyr TMP or the Mauser G98.

Steyr TMP? Wheeeeeeeee!

*dives out of the way Neo style* :mrgreen:

Seriosuly, what's wrong with the XM8? It's a very flexible gun. It's can acomodate a wide variety of optics and an actual UNDER BARREL GRENADE LAUNCHER.

Plus, it can take either 30 round or 100 round drum magazines.

It's main selling point was that it would be qualified for a wide cariety of missions.

Man, I can't wait until we se attachments in Alliance. *sigh*

It's looks way different. A G36 doesn't support the same range of attachments and, with the XM8, adding and removing attachments is much easier.

all gun barrels melt if fired long enough and fast enough the only reason you don't tend to see it in alot of guns is they don't hold enough ammo and or don't fire fast enough

The XM8 doesn't melt.

Also :
Quote:
1. It's light. The baseline carbine model currently weighs in at 6.25 pounds (the objective weight is 5.7 pounds), including an integrated sight with infrared laser and illuminator, red dot reflex sight and integrated mount. By comparison, an M4 modular weapon system with rail attachment, backup sights, M68 Close Combat Optic and standard laser/illuminator systems tips the scales at 8.85 pounds.

2. It comes with a cutting-edge sighting system. The XM8's battery-powered sight houses a red dot close-combat optic that incorporates an infrared laser aimer and illuminator. The shooter controls the sight's functions through a wireless switch that can be mounted anywhere on the weapon. The sight combines all the capabilities of the separate close-combat optic, AN/PEQ-2 laser and AN/PAQ-4 designator systems normally mounted on M4s.

3. It's easy to zero. The sight has a backup etched reticle and comes factory zeroed. It retains its zero position through a positive-locking mounting setup.

4. It has no rails. Designers fashioned integral, flush-mounting, metal-lined attachment points on the XM8's handguard and receiver. Standard 1913 adapters can be mounted on the attachment points so operators can continue to use lights, lasers and other items already in the inventory.

5. It needs little maintenance. H&K officials say the XM8 can fire more than 15,000 rounds without need for lubrication or cleaning, even under the most extreme operating conditions.

6. It's easy to clean. Unlike the M16/M4 series, the XM8's gas system doesn't blow gases and their carbon-fouling elements into the receiver during firing. Instead, about 90 percent of the gases created during firing are vented through a gas port under the front of the barrel; the other 10 percent are used to cycle the weapon. This new design reduces average cleaning time to four minutes, compared with the 14-minute average cleaning time for an M4.

7. It's tough. Between shooters, H&K officials alternated sticking the carbine in a drum of water and burying it in sand. Despite that treatment and the thousands of rounds put through the weapons at the range, there wasn't a single misfire or stoppage. The weapon's cold hammer-forged barrel has a service life of 20,000 rounds, and has blow-out vents to direct energy and gases from a catastrophic chamber failure forward and away from the shooter.

8. It's ambidextrous. Lefties will find a southpaw-friendly, centrally located charging handle that doubles as a forward assist slide, an ambidextrous magazine release, bolt catch, safety/selector lever and release lever for the multiposition, collapsible butt stock. All shooters will be able to keep their firing hand on the pistol grip while loading, unloading or charging the weapon.


Fire selectors FTW. Semi auto and full auto.


I hope al it's beenewfits are represented in alliance.

We're not going to argue about the sexuality of the XM8.

naw, that would be if it was going out with another assault rifle, say the IMI Tavor or the Enfield.

Oh god, I can't believe we're talking about this.

I smell boredom! :(

Which Enfield are you referring to?

The SA80, L85A1, L85A2, L1A1 SLR?

I'm still doubting the XM8's sexuality due to its calibre.

I could care less what the XM8 is, all I know is it is one ugly gun regardless of how well it performs. Oh God that sounded weird. Thanks guys, thanks a lot.

One of the reasons the xm8 was never put into full production was because the barrels overheated to fast or some bull like that...because I remeber reading an article about it but I'm to lazy to look it up.

Don't forget it's allergic to dirt, sand, and any other spec of something that gets in it to jam it.
