    Albanian B.O.S. - HK416 and HK417


    your right about them but also RENEA The Reparti i Neutralizimit te Elementit te Armatosur ("Unit for the Neutralisation of Armed Elements"), uses them

    and also the Shqiponjat (English: "The Eagles") is a quick intervention group of the Albanian state police

    Forzat e Nderhyrjes se Shpejte (FNSH) There are 12 FNSH groups throughout Albania ( not all of them use the hk416/17 some of them do for special operations

    and last

    Naval Commandos also uses the hk417 (small commando unit)

    Uh?? NASA has a SWAT team.... I assume this is because Osama is now rumored to be hiding in the rugged mountains of Neptune... Seriously though, it is a surprise to hear. I thought they just had typical base security and used local law enforcement for crowd control at launches, didn't realize even they had specialized units. Either way good to hear they are fielding the 416!

    if you think about it, NASA has a need for a SRT team. A large portion of what goes on there is probably on a secret or clasafied levle. With so much of our country's intel coming from spy satalites in space, defence of what goes on behind their fences is a good idea. Not to mention that a shuttle launch would be a good terorist threat
    If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns

    It makes perfect sense, it just surprised me. I'm sure they are a well trained and professional unit but for some reason I keep picturing a bunch guys in puffy white space suits carrying 416s. I forgot about how involved NASA is with missile tech and spy stuff.

    I thought the same thing. But just came back from Cali and sat next to a guy at a resturuant there that was wearing a black T-shirt that said "NASA Swat" on the front of it and a cool pic on the back, it looked legit (not mall ninja stufff). Edit....A quick Google search confirms they have a SWAT Team....

    FWIW: Frank James's MP5 book has a chapter on a NASA SWAT MP5 that went 571,600rds during its lifetime.

    Default DEVGRU definitely uses the HK416 …

    In regards to the FBI HRT, when I asked an Ashburn rep about that a few months back, he said they have a "few". I don't know if they've officially adopted it yet or not.

    Is there any solid info out there confirming DEVGRU's use of the 416? I'd be interested to see.

    My son-in-law is a DEVGRU (Naval Special Warfare Development Group) operator and they do use the HK416. They get to choose pretty much what they want to use, period.

    BTW, he *loves* his 416.
