Weapons manufacturer Heckler & Koch denied on Monday evening that the G36 rifles it supplied to the Bundeswehr (German army) lose their accuracy when they are too hot.
"Unfortunately we first learned of the Bundeswehr's statements about the G36 rifle through press questions," the company said in a statement. They maintain that the G36 is a "globally recognized, technologically leading assault rifle" and that "the results currently being published contradict totally the comprehensive and laborious testing that Heckler and Koch conducted itself in light of the rumours". "Heckler & Koch does not recognize the negative results supplied by the Bundeswehr on the G36 rifle".
