A new rifle developed by Heckler and Koch, a German arms manufacturer. The concept was updating the M16/M6 series by incorporating a new gas piston system instead of the typical M16/M4 mechanisim. The new weapon is ultra reliable and is already in use by the US Special Operations community including Delta Force as well as the Norweigan Armed Forces. It fires the NATO standard 5.56x45mm round and has a standard magazine capacity of 30 rounds. It is available with barrel lengths of 10.5in,14.5in,16in,and 20in. It is also available in a variation called the HK417 which is basically a scaled up HK416 chambered for the heavier 7.62x51mm round.

The German company Heckler & Koch is now producing a morphed version of the G36 & M4 which is a 5.56x45 Nato rifle round. A revolutionary new gas and bolt assembly now makes this wepon even more reliable. Most notably, it stays clean longer. It requires less servicing than past rifles and you can pull the bolt out right after firing half a dozen clips to find it cool to the touch. While nothing highly technical like the OICW it is viewed to be a step up from the M16 and G36 variants. It is possibly that the U.S. military might adopt this new weapon in the next 5 years to replace our aging arsonal of M16A2's.
Damn that HK416 really can lay down the fire. I want one...
