Pancor JackhammerData provided by Greg Brovane

Pancor Jackhammer: The Jackhammer is a 12-gauge automatic shotgun design that was developed in the 1980s but never actually made it into production.

Pancor entered bankruptcy when they could not obtain U.S. State Department approval for foreign sales. Only a few working prototypes were ever built.

Nevertheless, the fully-automatic capabilities and the futuristic stylings make this an interesting firearm and worth profiling.

The shotgun is almost fully manufactured from plastic and is classed as a blow-forward automatic revolver. The shotgun feeds from a 10-round revolver-style magazine. The gas from each shot pushes the barrel forwards, allowing magazine to rotate the next round into firing position as a return spring pushes the barrel back to mate with the magazine.

The magazine can also be detached and, with a detonator added, used as an antipersonnel mine called the Beartrap with all rounds in the magazine being fired straight upwards into the combatant stepping on it.

Franchi SPAS-15 Data provided by R.J. Andron 

Franchi SPAS 15: This 12-ga. shotgun feeds from a box magazine, and like the more popular SPAS-12, it has a switchable semiautomatic/pump action.

This shotgun is limited to military and police use in most nations and is in service in Italy, Portugal, and Serbia. The shotgun is also available to the civilian market in Italy. However, the shotgun was prohibited for civilian ownership in Canada except for very specific circumstances. Importation of the shotgun into the United States has been banned since 1996, although the weapon may still be privately owned.

M4A1

 
 

M4A1Data provided by R.J. Andron

M4A1: The M4A1 is a common service rifle/carbine in the United States Army and USMC, as well as in other militaries. The highly reconfigurable rifle derives from the classic AR-15 and M-16 designs and the M4 version is planned to replace the M16 rifles in the US military over the coming years. The M4A1 features selective fire with semi-automatic/full automatic fire modes, while the M4 is limited to semi-automatic and three-round burst.

The M4A1 is also the basis for the SOPMOD Block I, II, and III used by USSOCOM and others. SOPMOD adds in a rail interface system with the ability to add in an M203 40mm Grenade Launcher, sound suppressor, and other special attachments.

The weapon system has seen deployment in recent combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as other areas around the world. Current users include Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Belize, Brazil, Canada (as the C8), Czech republic, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Georgia, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mlayasia, Nepal, New Zealand, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Singapore, Thailand, Tonga, Turkey, UAE, United States, and Yemen. Many of the users are special operations or police forces in these nations.

While the M4 has been in service in many nations, there is some controversy over the weapon’s effectiveness at longer ranges–a necessary compromise given the shorter barrel length (at 14.5″) compared to the M16 series of rifles (18″ and up). This has driven the development of alternatives such as the XM8, FN SCAR, HK-416, and Bushmaster ACR, as well as a push for larger calibres, such as the 6.8 SPC or “green” ammunition such as the M855A1. The M855A1 ammunition uses a copper core and faster-burning powder to attain higher muzzle velocities out of the shorter barrel.

Bushmaster ACR: The Bushmaster Adaptive Combat Rifle began as a private development by Magpull Industries and was called the Magpull Masada. The rights to the firearm design were eventually sold to Bushmaster and Remington.

When Bushmaster and Remington started production and marketing of the rifle, the rifle was renamed the Adaptive Combat Rifle or ACR.

The rifle platform allows for significant reconfigurability including different barrel lengths and even different ammunition kits, with 6.8mm Remington and 7.62x39mm calibres being planned. The data shown below is for the 5.56mm NATO version with the 14.5″ barrel.

The rifle has been offered to the U.S. Army as part of its Individual Carbine competition.

H&K G-36C

 
 

HK G-36CData provided by R.J. Andron

H&K G-36C: The G-36C is an assault rifle developed off of the G-36 design. The “C” designates that this is the “Compact” or “Commando” version of the firearm.

The smaller frame, combined with the higher-powered 5.56mm NATO ammunition it fires makes the firearm popular with special operations and counter-terrorism units.

The optical sights of the G36 and G-36K versions have been replaced with iron sights, and the flash hider has been replaced with a four prong design. The front handguard has four Picatinny Rail attachment points for accessories, including optical sights, tactical lights, and handgrips.

The G-36C is in use in Germany, Poland, Malaysia, Indonesia, United States, and the United Kingdom.

H&K G-36

 
 

H&K G-36Data Provided by R.J. Andron

HK G-36: The G-36 was adopted by the German Army following the collapse of the G-11 project. The G-36 was designed as a cost-effective rifle able to fire the 5.56mm NATO ammunition required to conform to NATO standard.

The weapon uses a gas-operated rotating bolt and incorporates an integral 3x optical sight and a red-dot collimating sight.

The export version, the G-36E, is identical, but eliminates the red-dot sight and replaces the optical sight with a 1.5x version.

The G-36 is in service in Brazil, Britain, Chile, Germany, Holland, Indonesia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the United States of America.
