A 4.1 pound weight reduction was achieved by using a new lightweight barrel (available in standard and fluted) and removing the carrying handle, magazine well and vehicle mounting lugs (for vehicle applications). Unique to the MK46 MOD0 is Picatinny Rails that accommodate scopes, laser designators and flashlights. It also has a forward pistol grip and a detachable bipod. This weapon has been adopted by the US Navy". TECHNICAL DATA Caliber: 5'56x45mm-NATO Weight Empty: 12,6 lbs. Barrel Weight: 2 lbs Overall Length: 35,75 inches Barrel Length: 16 inches
