There is like 3 different rumors going around, but the 'buzz' is an HK416. Doesnt really matter though, a Navy SEAL is what killed him. Those guys are weapons themselves.

The most consistent stories I hear is that the HK556 ( or rather the 516 =p ) did the job

H&K is a manufacturer, that produces fine weapons systems, operators have been using them for decades, they work with annoying German predictability. I put more than 10k rounds through mine and the only failure to fire was a bad primer. The G3/91 variant is one of the most popular free world weapon produced. I was in Mexico a few years back, clearing customs in Ensinada, where after landing I was met by a squad of Mexican marines. They all had G3s and them suckers were spotless, phosphate worn clean off from their nonstop cleaning, well oiled, well used, well taken care of. Pretty squared away troops, chatted with the squad leader while waiting for the customs crew, nice guy.

P.S. I will bet the average SEAL team armory would be a fantasy, for almost any other operator. Any weapon system just projects the will of it's operator. I would not want to be standing between a SEAL and his objective either!

A little off topic, but has anybody else wondered at how it played out. Helicopters land. Gunfire. Apparently he pokes his head out and someone takes a shot. Yet when the SEALs breach his room, he's unarmed, tho there's an AK and a pistol there.

WTF? Did he go full wimp, or maybe he was hoping for a surrender and long showy trial?

This isn't a critique - I'm glad they shot him, just like everyone else. But I don't get what he was doing. Even if the SEAL weapons were silenced, and the helos muffled, there had to have been some noise, plus the shot taken at him. Or maybe the true story is the first he knew the SEALs were there was when he saw a bright flash and then darkness and then a big guy with horns, a pitchfork, and rude intentions.

TM,
Your problem is reading comprehension, seem I was writing about.....HK......Navy Seals...... and the fact that the HK family is a good system. Please elaborate on how "they suck". So what you are saying is that the Navy Seal that capped Osama is a "silly fan boy" because he used a HK. I use the "O" word because it's easier than typing Navy Seal on my iPad with my fat sausage like fingers.

I've fired a 416 in full auto (check the videos on the previous page of this post). It's a slick weapon system. Surprisingly light and VERY easy to control. Check out the plane of the barrel as I fire and see how steady and level the rifle stays. I have no military or LEO experience and don't often get to fire in full auto. For a noob getting to fire the 416 in full auto and to see my groupings at 50 yards with it was a sight to behold. I can't imagine how the 416 would perform in the hands of a trained SEAL.

How do you feel about AK systems? How is your tech support from the Kalishnikov factory? HK sucks how? Because they make a product, tailored to a specific demographic, and then charge what the market will bear, sounds like capitalism to me.

HK is extreamly anti-gun. I know that seems odd, them being an arms manufacturer, but the only reason they sell to the public is because begrudgingly in order to compete with all the other manufacturers out there they have to. Military sales are not constant and by selling to the public it keeps the flow and interest up as well as get their product out there to somebody whom may have influence in arms deals down the road. They only sell what they absolutly have to, to the public, and that is reflected in the prices they charge. I personally do not buy HK products for that reason.

As a system, HK products have an excellent reputation.

I think, as opposed to being anti gun, I would submit that they don't want their guns used by the most unpredictable segment of the population, the masses. When you think of "gangbangers" what is the most popular weapon used, other than the universal junk gun?
Glock, AK? These names are now even part of the gang lexicon. I would submit that since post WWII, some German weapons mfgs, are very perception oriented. In many countries weapon ownership is strictly limited by their governments. With weapon sales to governments, unless you are building a better mousetrap, sales stagnate, since rebuilding and maint. limits new sales. Consumer sales would be a difficult balance between keeping manufacturing lines open, and making profit and allowing R&D to continue. Why else would they offer semi auto versions of their premium products?

This is one of the most intelligent posts I have yet seen on Calguns. kudos
It's that association and image protectionism, if that is what HK's reasoning is, that drives me bonkers.

Gang banger's guns used to be lever actions in the late 1800's, yet today they are classic good 'ol boy rifles without any bad image attached to them by the general populace. That same image and mindset needs to apply to modern rifles as well.

You see, the anti's argument is that modern semi-autos give criminals an unfair advantage. However in 1879 did the lever action give criminals an unfair advantage? No, people simply responded to ever increasing technology. The police and general populace at the time all shared in arming themselves equally with the criminals.

If HK and other manufacturers stopped feeding into this mentality as well as if the general populace of the US started hunting/shooting with modern semi-autos the labeling of modern semi-autos as bad guy guns or killing machines would eventually fade away. AR's and Ak's would share the same spot that the rest of the old military rifles do today, tools for hunting, self protection, and target shooting. This does seem to be happening, but there is still a long way to go.

HK's policy may be seen as self preserving (by itself or others), but in actuallity it is against the right of an individual to protect himself and pro tyranny.

Ryan,

Have you even owned an H&K gun? If so, have you experienced bad customer service yourself?

I can tell you from experience that, as a civilian, I have been treated kindly by H&K. I had a question, called and left a message and they called me back the same day. Talked to me about their guns and all was good.

In regard to the USP, have you shot one back-to-back with an XD? I have shot it back-to-back with Glock 19 & 17 and XD and I prefer the feel of the USP. It is indeed personal preference but to me, the felt recoil was less with the USP. I also like the fact that you can carry it with a round in the chamber either condition 2, 1 or 0.

As far as cost, it is made in Germany and labor costs more their. Plus the Euro to USD exchange rate & import fees bumps the price up a bit.

I can tell you from experience that, as a civilian, I have been treated kindly by H&K. I had a question, called and left a message and they called me back the same day. Talked to me about their guns and all was good.

In regard to the USP, have you shot one back-to-back with an XD? I have shot it back-to-back with Glock 19 & 17 and XD and I prefer the feel of the USP. It is indeed personal preference but to me, the felt recoil was less with the USP. I also like the fact that you can carry it with a round in the chamber either condition 2, 1 or 0.

As far as cost, it is made in Germany and labor costs more their. Plus the Euro to USD exchange rate & import fees bumps the price up a bit.

I'm sorry, the correct answer is "because people think they are better".

Yes Ive shot a couple of USPs back to back with a couple other guns including the XD.

High bore axis, flexy trigger, heavier, superfluous safety, bad magazine release, and a $350 premium. I still want one, but there's a lot of guns I want before it.

I wonder how many SEALS actually shot him. I think if I was one of them, and one of my buddies shot him, I'd shoot him a couple more times just to make sure. ;)

I'm getting some good indications that it was an HK MP7 A1 (http://www.heckler-koch.de/HKWebText/detailProd/1926/81/4/20) that fired the Osama kill shots.

Hmm, HK416? Maybe not.

"...That night, he wore a shirt and trousers in Desert Digital Camouflage, and carried a silenced Sig Sauer P226 pistol, along with extra ammunition; a CamelBak, for hydration; and gel shots, for endurance. He held a short-barrel, silenced M4 rifle. (Others SEALs had chosen the Heckler & Koch MP7.) A “blowout kit,” for treating field trauma, was tucked into the small of James’s back. Stuffed into one of his pockets was a laminated gridded map of the compound. In another pocket was a booklet with photographs and physical descriptions of the people suspected of being inside. He wore a noise-cancelling headset, which blocked out nearly everything besides his heartbeat."

By dressing up as Mohammad and telling osama to suicide himself. Since no ones ever seen an image of Mohammad he dressed up like Mickey Mouse, and it worked like a charm. 1980's delta force tactics FTW!

Although it's miraculous that the Mossad said he was dead, the IDF said he was dead the CIA said he was probably dead back in 2001 and all of a sudden ratings dip for the prez and now he's dead.

Bush must have known that's why he didn't show up at ground zero after. Actually has anyone checked under Jr's bed out at his ranch because I'm thinking you might just find Saddam there too.

Good link to the Funny or Die video of the Navy Seal that shot Bid Laden, it's hilarious!

The guy in the video is actually a Marine Corp Reservist Officer

"Riggle is currently a Lieutenant Colonel[4] in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and served in Liberia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. He is currently a public affairs officer with the New York City Public Affairs unit and is a recipient of the Combat Action Ribbon.[5] Riggle joined the Marines in 1990 after getting his pilot's license, intending to become a Naval Aviator, but left flight school in order to pursue his comedy career.[6] He has referred to his military experiences on The Daily Show, often when acting as the show's "Military Analyst", publicly stating he could kill any other member of the show.[7]
In August 2007, Riggle went to Iraq to report for The Daily Show as well as to entertain the troops under the purview of the USO.[8]"

HK416 in a 10.4 inch barrel loaded with a 77gr MK262 Mod 1.

A standard DEVGRU assault kit consists of the HK MP7A1, HK416 w/ AAC can, HK45CT, P226R and P239. My money is on the HK416.

How did they get their damn flippers around the trigger?

says once in the chest and and as he was falling, once in the head.

A second SEAL stepped into the room and trained the infrared laser of his M4 on bin Laden’s chest. ... The first round, a 5.56-mm. bullet, struck bin Laden in the chest. As he fell backward, the SEAL fired a second round into his head, just above his left eye. On his radio, he reported, “For God and country—Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo.” After a pause, he added, “Geronimo E.K.I.A.”—“enemy killed in action.”

Article isn't consistent, though. It says one SEAL had an M4 while the rest had MP7. But later on seems to imply another one had an "M4", unless that was their way of identifying the shooter.

Previously mentioned a member noted that SEAL teams typically carry an assault carbine as well as an MP7. The real question is whether the author simply generalized "M4" as an AR pattern, carbine length rifle, and possibly misidentified the HK416, or if the SEAL was actually using an M4. Could go either way, and frankly, I don't think it really matters to split hairs at that point... fairly similar rifles, forgiving the gas system.

2 words "stealth helicopter"

http://www.devilshopyard.com/images/satellite/government/stealth_black_hawk.gif

Plus the marines don't really have the same level of an elite unit capable of these kinds of stealth mission with this kind of secret tech.

They probably would have sent in the detla force had they not gone on the history channel and convinced people the government stopped us from getting him in 01 when they had him cornered in Pakistan.

It was the 416 but what I'd be interested in is whether it was equipped with a burst mode. On other rifles this allows for a 2 shot burst at 1800 rpm basically putting the first two shots into the same hole to defeat armor ect.
