Got these from "Army Times". They’re video clips of the ATK/HK XM8 Lightweight Modular Carbine System, a.k.a. ATK/HK XM8 Lightweight Assault Carbine, from SHOT Show 2004. Some of the footage is from the outdoor XM8 Carbine weapons demonstration conducted by Jim Schatz, Military Programs Manager at Heckler & Koch (HK). Other footage was shot inside the SHOT Show exhibition hall at the Heckler & Koch (HK) booth.
The video clips are worth watching. To view them, just click on the links below:
