STONER KAC ASSAULT MACHINE GUN
Since the advent of maneuver warfare, high volume/high density/sustained fire has been the decisive factor in enabling small unit movement during the assault, or denying opposing maneuver during counter-assault or consolidation. Numerous weapon types have been forced into this role, from traditional light machine guns to heavier versions of standard rifles and carbines; all ultimately failing to achieve optimal result due to either excessive individual burden, lack of sustained fire capability, or insufficient platform lifespan. The Assault Machine Gun from Knight’s Armament Company delivers the needed sustained volume of fire to an assault element at a low enough weight to keep pace with an assault. With a low cyclic rate of 575-625 rounds per minute, and constant-recoil/spring run-out operation, it is more controllable than other similar machine guns that weigh nearly twice as much. The optic mounting rail is integral to the receiver, rather than the feed-tray cover, which significantly improves consistency in optic mounting. Classic machine gun features such as a quick-change barrel and compatibility with M27 links and standard drum type clip attachment are standard.
