SK-19 (Sturmkarabiner-19)

Now the standard service weapon in the German Army, the SK-19 is clearly a progressive development of the Traylor Arms M-2 Assault Rifle. The main improvements over the M-2 consist of the substitution of a reliable binary propellant system for fixed cartridges and the inclusion of an integral 30 mm grenade launcher in the stock below the barrel. The binary propellant system includes a muzzle velocity governor keyed to the fire select switch, patterned after that on the French FAM-90. When on the burst setting, muzzle velocity is considerably reduced giving an extremely controllable autofire weapon. The resulting combination of a high rate of fire, ease of control, the shattering punch of the 9 mm APHE round, and the option of 30 mm grenade fire makes the SK-19 the most devastating close-in assault weapon in service anywhere.
