Heckler and Koch HK417 and suppressor
This enhances the protection and lethality of our soldiers. The fitted suppressor affords even greater protection and safety by lowering the visual and audible signature of the weapon when fired.
The day sight fitted to the HK417, an Advanced Combat Optic Gunsight (ACOG) Trijicon 6 x 48 with Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (RMR), is able to magnify 4 times more than most Infantrymen are used to.
