Non class 3 pkm??????????

Discussion in 'Auto & Semi-Auto Discussion' started by HighPlainsDrifter, Nov 24, 2010.

  1. I was doing some research on the www. about a non class 3 pkm. While doing so i came up empty handed, so i resort like many times in the past to asking you guys. Some how it always works better this way. So, is there such a thing as a non class 3 or semi auto regular joe ownable pkm pattern rifle out there. What sparked all of this was a J&G sales ad for a semi auto mg42. So i thought to my self a pkm like that would be freaking sweet. Any help would rock thanks guys FTF always pulls through.

    Thanks. They do.

    Any idea is USMC is still testing PKM's?
     
  7. I dont know. I know they use them a lot in cross training to familiarize themselves to id and use them if need be.

    They were testing them in 7.62x51, but I don't know what the final decis was (if the final has been made.)
     
  9. Yeah i had not heard that, I cant find any info on the web about it. where they thinking of adopting it into service? I like the the pkm a lot but i dont know if it would be better the the m249. That and if they are wanting to trade up there are many more options out there. I dont know thought what do you think?

    They were testing for use in service. Long process, though, and it was a couple of years ago. Not sure where it stands now.

    I like the PKM a lot. No way to argue with the success, and they are 100% reliable in every environment.
     
  11. This is true.
