- The M27 is an HK416-derived firearm. It has nothing to do with the SCAR. Spartan198 (talk) 14:58, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Merge with HK416
- Better to keep it separate to future proof both articles. Its a US military system and is bound to be tinkered with in future. To try and keep the article updated would make the HK416 a mess (and too US-centric). 22.214.171.124 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 01:13, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Using the Military.com article as the source, I am adding a paragraph to "History" section regarding the adoption of the M27. It may be significant enough to merit its own section, or at least to divide the History section into pre- and post-adoption subsections. I won't do it now, but it's worth thinking about. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IRSpeshul (talk • contribs) 04:58, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Rate of fire?
- Just because another variant fires at 850 RPM doesn't mean this one does. It needs a source for any RPM figure, yours or the other. Herr Gruber (talk) 13:12, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
- Also, why isn't the semi-automatic fire mode mentioned in this article?
- A rate of fire of 580-640 rpm would make zero sense for a squad automatic weapon role. How can it be used in than role if its rate of fire is lower than that of the standard assault rifle? Of course, the idea of a squad automatic weapon that relies on 30-round magazines is also nonsensical, so really the entire procurement is a boondoggle, but that's another topic entirely. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:18, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Most weapons of Russian/Soviet origin have a fire rate of ~600 rpm, including the RPK, which can be classified as a SAW. It is not rate of fire, but whether automatic fire is used. Most assault rifles are kept on semi-automatic for controllability. Grizzly chipmunk (talk) 15:58, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Do M27 use heavy barrel? Its heavier than M4/M16 barrel but according to some sources , it uses standard barrel profile, not heavy barrel and its barrel and the HK416 D16.5RS barrel have the same barrel profile. Is M27 barrel heavier than 16,5" HK416 barrel? - Avatar896 20:06, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
