Now Online in The Objective Series: SIG-MMG 338 Program (Part 1)

In 2017, U.S. SOCOM challenged industry to provide potential solutions that could fill the gap between its man-portable, medium machine gun—the 7.62 NATO M240B/L, and its 84-plus-pound sibling—the 50 BMG M2A, a gap that was made all too apparent in the 2009 battle of COP Keating in Afghanistan.

This is the first post in a two-part series that details the journey of SIG SAUER’s machine gun development effort that began with the SIG MMG 338 for U.S. SOCOM’s LMG-M program, transitioned to the U.S. Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapons program, and is now returning to its roots.

    Does it have a quick change barrel? The 277 Fury machine gun entry does not, which is crazy. If not, this thing is trash.

      The XM250? No, it does not. The Army didn’t ask for one. SIG has already engineered it. Regardless, it is a great weapon and not only outclasses the M249, but the M240 as well, in some scenarios.

      The MG338? Yes, it does. It far outclasses the M240 and the M2 as well, in some scenarios.

        Good points though I will mention an old Toyota Landcruiser far outclasses both the Model S Tesla and the Porsche 911 Turbo…..in some scenarios.
