Lambda Defence Premium MK 48 Mod 1 LMG AEG With Surefire Flash Hider (11kg Steel)
- Model: (SK6750) Lambda Defence Premium MK 48 Mod 1 LMG AEG
On 21 March 2001, the USSOCOM approved the MNS/ORD (Mission Need Statement/Operational Requirements Document) for a new 7.62×51mm NATO lightweight machine gun (LWMG) to replace the M60E4/Mk 43 Mod 0 in use by United States Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC) units. The LWMG program was patterned after the Mk 46 Mod 0—a variant of the M249 light machine gun currently in use by the USSOCOM. Fabrique Nationale's division at Columbia, South Carolina (which also produces the M249 and M240 series of weapons for the U.S. military) was charged with production of the Mk 48 Mod 0. The program achieved full-rate production on 21 March 2003. Improved version of the Mod 0 which began as a refurbishment program in 2006 and Mod 1 models replaced the Mod 0 entirely as of 2010.
This incredible Premium Quality highly accurate MK 48 Mod 1 replica from Lambda Defence Taiwan sets a new standard for Production Airsoft LMGs, with majoritly steel construction this LMG weighs in at an incredible and realistic 11kg, this is compared to just over 6kg for an A&K model M249. As a producer of custom replicas let me tell you that where there is weight there is quality, this LMG uses realistic surface finishes to ensure 100% accuracy with the real steel MK 48, namely Nitride Phosphoric Acid treatment for all Steel Parts and Anodising for all Aluminium components. This LMG is a highly accurate MK 48 and is not simply a modified M249, of course with its real steel counterpart being in 7.62mm this LMG will accept 7.62mm inert round belts into its feed tray, 7.62mm goodness...
The outer / inner barrel / hop assembly of this LMG are removable as per the M249 with a spring loaded retention button, this enables quick and easy barrel changes. One of the most notable features of this LMG is of course the stock, designed by the U.S Army to reduce weight and decrease size the Mod 1 stock is a thing of outstanding engineering beauty! This MK 48 also has a re-designed Bi-Pod which when compared to an M249 allows for a far wider leg distance, this makes the Bi-Pod more stable when deployed, of course the leg height is easily adjustable with the legs being machined to a beautifully rounded finish.
One of the features we love most about this MK 48 is the drum magazine, made from a high quality polymer with realistic colour and texture this 5,000, yes that is 5,000 round auto winding drum is attached with a quick release mechanism that feeds directly into the bottom of the LMG! This is a major advantage over existing M249s. Internally this LMG utilises an improved A&K Type M249 gearbox setup with the rotary hop as used in the M249 series.
The outer barrel has an extension beyond the gas tube so they can be made to Para length by changing the inner barrel.
