SIG MG-338, New Toy

The Norma 338 seems like a good choice.
Much better ballistics than the M240/7.62x51
Much lighter package than the M2/50cal,, @20lbs
AND it comes Suppressed?

But,, will the recoiling barrel be a maintenance issue?

Quote:
The SIG SAUER MG 338 machine gun is a belt-fed, lightweight medium machine gun weighing under 20lbs., chambered in 338 Norma Mag. The MG 338 features a short-stroke gas piston system and a proprietary recoil mitigation system, with a free-floating, quick-change barrel, ambidextrous controls, switchable feed tray, charging handle that can be alternated to either side depending on operator preference, and as a modern, multi-caliber, modular system the new SIG MG 338 is easily convertible to 7.62x51cal.

Time will tell. What destroys guns is heat and pressure. Too light and the gun will beat itself to death. M60s were heavier and destroyed themselves overtime. Mk48s destroy themselves also. Rates of fire will also determine how long the gun will last.
