This weapon is currently
undergoing development and testing by HK and
is not currently in active use. A possible date
for infantry use may be around 2006. The weapon
itself will retail around $15,000.
One of the technical aspects
being looked at by HK is the weight of the weapon,
which currently is thought to be around 20 pounds,
in comparison to an 8 pound M16.
