HK MP7a1 Sub Machine Gun
The HK MP7a1 is a sub machine gun, manufactured by Heckler & Koch. Chambered in 4.6mm x 30mm with a 20 or 40 round magazine housed in the weapon's pistol grip, the MP7a1 is said to be currently in use with DEVGRU, otherwise known as SEAL Team Six (ST6). It was reportedly carried by many of the SEAL Team 6 operators who took part in the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden in May 2011.
The MP7A1 is a compact gun that is suitable for close quarters combat (CQC) work and hence is ideal for a counter terrorist units such as SEAL Team Six. The weapon features an extendable stock, fold down fore grip and rails for mounting accessories such as scopes, laser pointers and torches. A sound suppressor can also be fitted.
