HISTORY



Detailing the development and operational history of the Heckler & Koch HK WSG2000 Anti-Material Rifle (AMR).  Entry last updated on 8/15/2017. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com.
The HK WSG2000 was an abandoned anti-material rifle under development by the German firearms firm of Heckler & Koch GmbH. The design appeared in proposal form as early as 1990 and was intended to fire a 9x90mm MEN cartridge with the purpose of disabling target vehicles and penetrating fortifications. However, the design was never evolved past the mockup phase and consideration for future development was ultimately and completely dropped - thought the mockup is thought to still exist today somewhere in the HK facilities. As such, no functioning prototypes were ever completed and very few images - if any- exist today.

The WSG2000 sported clean futuristic lines for its time. The receiver was smooth and flat and ran forward to make up the forend. The pistol grip was integrated into the design for a sure hold with the trigger unit was set just ahead. The rifle was fed from a 5-round detachable box magazine inserted into the underside of the shoulder stock, just aft of the pistol grip, making the WSG2000 a "bullpup" configured rifle design. The shoulder stock continued rearwards a ways and was designed with an ergonomic curve. Optics would have been fitted to the upper forward portion of the receiver. The barrel protruded a short distance away from the forend casing. The weapon would have featured a length of 47.3 inches with a weight equal to 17.6lbs.
