The MG75A1 Light Assault Machine Gun (LAMG) is a compact, lightweight, gas-operated, air-cooled, select fire, light machine gun firing from the open bolt position and chambered in the 6.5×39mm Grendel (6.5/8/800) intermediate combat cartridge. The MG75A1 emulates the top-mounted magazine feed of the famous Czech Bren Gun and American Stoner 63 light machine guns, and is heavily based on the dynamic components of the G500 Modular Weapon System (G500 MWS). The G500 operating system and feed system is inverted and modified for open bolt firing and constant-recoil/spring run-out operation, with the gas piston situated below a 470 mm (18˝ inch) quick-detachable barrel, a rotary bolt locked breach, top cover with magazine feed over the receiver, and an ejection port to the right. The weapon can load any STANAG-compliant 30 round magazine authorised for the G500 MWS, or quad-stack high capacity 60 round 'Casket' magazines. The top-loading magazine allows unrestricted use while prone and has improved reliability thanks to gravity feeding with fewer stoppages and malfunctions. The magazine well is canted to the left to clear the line of sight for use with off-set iron sights, and the ejection port is fitted with a dividing dust cover. The free-floating ventilated hand guard features KeyMod rails and MIL-STD-1913 Pictianny rails are fitted to the reciever and fore-end. The fixed buttstock provides an off-hand hook to stabilise the weapon when mounted on a bipod or tripod mount.
