LIGHTWEIGHT FLEXIBLE PLATFORM WITH HARD-HITTING PERFORMACE
Chosen by U.S. special operators as the next generation assault rifle platform, the MK 17 provides the range, reliability, accuracy, safety, ergonomics and modularity to meet any operational challenge. A selective-fire, semi- and full-auto 7.62x51mm rifle using a short stroke gas piston, the MK 17 can be quickly configured by the individual operator in just minutes for close quarters combat (CQC), tactical and long-range engagements. Unlike many currently fielded 7.62x51mm rifles, controllability under recoil is a hallmark of the MK 17, allowing the operator to readily engage targets with multiple well-aimed rounds. The MK 17 has been tested and fielded with U.S. Armed Forces. It adds the same innovation, modularity and adaptability as the MK 16, only in a larger caliber.
