AUSA 19 – Latest Version of KAC Lightweight Assault Machine Gun

Although it’s a pretty mature design, Knight’s Armament Co continues to refine their Lightweight Assault Machine Gun.

With variants so far in 5.56, 7.62 and 6.5, the weights are 9, 12 and 14 lbs respectively. Everyone who picks one up says, “whoa!”

They’ve made a few improvements to the 5.56 gun which will be reflected in the other variants.

For instance, they’ve updated the feed tray cover to be side folding.

Additionally, by lifting the feed tray, you also depress the barrel release button. Likewise, if the feed tray is down, in firing configuration, the barrel release button can’t be depressed.

They’re also using the Cadex Falcon bipod, due to its pan and tilt capabilities.

If you’re in the market for a badass machine gun, Knight’s has you covered.

    That’s not an LMG. It’s a work of art and at that weight, a thing of beauty.

    9lbs… 9lbs.. no one want a workout with 9lbs not enough won’t even get your heart going, not even a mouse on a wheel. 10lbs is the key number here, think about it. 10 is the number

    Very light. I’m wondering if they advertise means rounds before failure?

  4. Jack says:

    Any idea why 6.5 is heavier than 7.62?

  5. Alpha2 says:

    That is just plain sexy.

  6. Sins of the Father says:

    What’s the difference between this and the Stoner LAMG?

  7. Wolf says:

    Considering how light these things are, for frontline riflemen we could probably just get rid of carbines all together and issue something like this instead.

    It’s stuff like this that makes the IAR concept look questionable.
