SHOT Show 17 – MKEK MPT-76

MKEK’s MPT-76 or National Infantry Rifle is a modular battle rifle designed to replace the G3 currently in service with the Turkish Armed Forces. Chambered for 7.62x51mm NATO, the MPT features a free-floating, cold hammer forged 16″ barrel with a 1:10 twist rate, and a short-stroke gas piston system. A bit of AR influence can be found in the MPT’s design, in regards to the forward assist, rearward charging handle, and selector switch; these later two components, along with the magazine release are also designed to be ambidextrous. The MPT also features a retractible buttstock; modular quad rail forend; folding front and rear sights; 20-round translucent polymer magazine; and grenade launcher and shotgun interfaces.

    I have been looking forward to this since seeing the video on Military Arms Channel about the rifle. This could be a hot seller if it is below $2000.

    Funny, all the Turks I see out here are carrying the MKEK version of the HK33, not G3s….
