The Heckler-Koch MSG90A1 was released in 1987 and is designed after Heckler-Koch’s PSG1 (Präzisionsschützengewehr, German for “precision-shooting rifle”) which was introduced in 1972.

The rifle has a free-floating barrel and comes with a detachable flash suppressor and that allows for a screw-on sound suppressor.
The ejection port is on the right side and has a brass deflector that allows the gun to be fired by a left handed shooter without sending hot brass into their face. The brass shoots forward which helps if you are shooting next to someone because it stops the brass from being shot into their face also. The deflector limits the damage to brass casings making the brass easier to reload.
The MSG90A1 is made for the U.S. Department of Defense and used by some of the Hostage Rescue Teams of the FBI.
We have contacted Colt again to find out about the new release date for the rifle (Yes that’s right they have moved the date again.)
At this point in time all they could say was that they will be hopefully releasing it in the first quarter of 2012.

This rifles design is based on and uses some of the same components as the FN SCAR-H MK-17 to allow the shooter to go from one rifle to the next without being retrained on a new platform and to reduce cost.
The SCAR-H PR (Heavy, Precision Rifle) uses the .308/7.62NATO cartridge which has an effective range out to 800m for long range precision while still letting the shooter use in shorter range combat.

We wrote about the Kel-Tec KSG back in April and our view of the bullpup design still hasn’t changed about enjoying the bullpup design and concept, the idea of having a full length rifle in a small package without the loss of accuracy and range of a short barreled rifle.
The rifle has a different ejection system than any rifle I ever seen and is patented by Kel-tec as a forward ejection system. The spent shells are ejected through a tube over the barrel of the weapon and slowly push each round out using the round after or if the weapons barrel is tilted down they can just fall out. One of the major advantages to this system is when firing next to someone you are not shooting hot brass towards them.
The weapon system is fully ambidextrous.
The barrel is threaded to allow for flash suppressor or sound suppressor.
The weapon and be field stripped much like the AR-15 platform by using a live round to push out the 3 pins that holds this weapon together.
Our friends at The Firearm Blog talked about the H&K MR308.
The .308 AR style rifles are really starting to pick up in sales lately.

One of the requirements from SOCOM for the SCAR-17 was that the rifle had to eject the spent 7.62x51mm brass the same as the M16. This meant FNH had to redesign the magazine.
At this time the DoD and SOCOM are currently purchasing all of the magazines for these rifles from FNH. When asked why, our source from FNH told us that they were not replacing any rifles but just adding to the available weapons they currently use.
At this time the availability of the propriety magazine is not available for civilian purchase due to the demand by the DoD and SOCOM. FNH hopes to have them back on the market within a few months time.
The SCAR-17S comes with only one 10 or 20 round magazine.
Colt is working on releasing this new rifle come December 2011. The release dates for this weapon has been changed a few times (April 2011 and August 2011) so we will see if they have it out by Christmas time so Santa can put it in your stocking if you have been a good little shooter this year.
The .308/ 7.62NATO magazine is a P-Mag (SR-25 style magazines).
