Even if it were to happen (to which there is a greater chance of Hell freezing over) the weapon would be useless without the ammo, and DN won't be making that ammo anytime soon. Heck, HK very rarely even fires one.
Though the G11 is an awesome weapon from the technical standpoint, it also suffers to some limitations, IMHO:
1- From one of the links in this site (G36-site), it has been stated that the empty case from the conventional caliber is instrumental in transporting heat outside the weapon, the caseless cartridge cannot do this.
2- Since there are consideration on coming back to larger diameter rifle cartridges (6.8mmX43, 7mmX46, 6mmX35, and even resurgence of the 7.62mmX51), IMHO, G11 cannot simply adopt to new chamberings as easily as conventional military rifles (I may be wrong in this).
It was a good idea during the 1980's, but it may have doubtful utility now.
The G11 in Demolition Man was made by the movie armorer, Michael Papac, from a real G11. The HK folks scrutinized the plans and manufacture of the prop gun and it was relinquished to them after filming was complete. I don't know what happened to the prop gun.
Anybody have anything showing the breech to ammo interface? For it to be accurate and develop pressure behind the bullet, obviously the barrel has to fit tightly around the bullet. But since the propellant is larger than the bullet, and not all behind it like a conventional round, something has to keep the pressure from just going around the front of the bullet tip and out the muzzle.
And I guess the little cap thingy (I don't think it would be properly called a primer) just follows the bullet out the bore?
I've seen pics of the mechanism, and it looks like a clock mechanism. But I don't remember seeing any of the chamber area besides the cartoony looking ones.
