The Mk48 is a 7.62x51mm medium machine gun designed and produced by Fabrique Nationale in conjunction with the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Intended to replace the M60 series of machine guns as a bridge between the M249/Mk46 series of 5.56x45mm light machine guns and the M240 series of 7.62x51mm medium machine guns, it successfully entered service with special operations during the early days of Operation Iraqi Freedom and has continued to be used by units such as the US Navy Seals, the 75th Ranger Regiment, and Army Special Forces “Green Berets”.
Lambda Defence Mk48 MOD 1 faithfully copies the real model of the machine gun to an incredible extent, starting with their determination to almost perfectly replicate the weight, size and feel of the weapon. The solid steel construction makes it one of the toughest and strongest airsoft machine guns on the market. Upgrade from your equipment to something that will turn every head in the field!
