    ENforce Tac 2017: FN Herstal Minin and Maximi MK3

    Remember all the annoying things about C9/Minimi, like the ammo belt has a tendency to slide off the tray? When the HK MG4 is around the corner, the Minimi ( also the 7.62 big brother Maximi) needs some updates to stay in the game. The MK3 conversion kit was actually announced awhile ago, but here are the real pictures.

    First of all, you can now have a bipod folded to the back and a vertical grip in the right place at the same time. Not the offset to the side weirdo vertical grip/rail on the C9A2.



    The feed tray now comes with two hooks and keep the belt on the tray, making reloading in off hand position possible without having the belt sliding off.



    A lock on the charging handle, so it won't run on its own. Not a big deal, but a nice touch.



    A useable adjustable buttstock with adjustable cheek riser, and hydraulic buffer. How luxurious.



    Apparently there is no difference between the two gas regulator positions - the gas ports are both the size of "adverse" now. The rate of fire is automatically adjusted by the buffer.

    So what you're saying is that the CF will see it in about 30 years?
    I wonder when my post count will exceed my IQ

    Yes, but not after an extensive review, comparison, competition, and procurement process that will tell us that these are in fact.... "improvements"....

    ...something I can tell you right now.

    So.... pretty...

    QD Sling swivels are a nice touch too.

    I've always loved me some C9.

    That feed tray and hand guard/bipod would make me a happy C9 gunner. That and if they'd ditch the mag well.

    But how else would you have a bolt-action machine gun without the magazine well?
    When I die, don't let my girlfriend sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them.

    Easy, by signing up for military duty and working hard to become a C9 gunner, yeah...

    Then you could really have some fun rocking the belt-fed full auto. bursts like these were made for...
