The Lewis machine and tool LM308MWSE 7.62mm rifle/carbine operates via direct gas impingement (DGI) a.k.a. direct impingement gas (DI gas) and has been adopted by the British Army, reportedly beating out the HK417 gas piston/op-rod AR rifle/carbine for the contract. The Brits ordered 440 units, designated the weapon the LM7, and then reportedly redesignated it the L129A1.
The purpose of the Lewis machine and tool L129A1 is to provide British military forces with a 7.62mm semi-auto sharpshooter weapon enabling designated marksmen to accurately and reliably engage targets out to 800mm. Magazine capacity is 20 rounds, which allows for a lot of fast follow-up shots against fast-moving enemy targets, including vehicles. The Lewis machine and tool MRP freefloats the barrel in order to maximize accuracy.p>
Defense Review was informed (at SHOT Show 2010) that the British Army found the Lewis machine and tool .308 MWS MRP (LM308MWSE)/LM7/L129A1 to be both more accurate AND more reliable under military combat test conditions than the HK 417. This is interesting, since the Lewis machine and tool .308 is a direct-gas-impingement (DGI) AR rifle/carbine, and the HK417 is a gas piston/op-rod AR. Hm. It would seem that piston-driven ARs arenât always superior to direct gas ARs.(article by Defense Review)
