Just watch the video and comment on it,I don't need the legal status of the company.

I guess I have to expand on my comment on the video. This machine gun will likely not be the successor of the MG3 as the company has to deal with (1) significant 'technical issues' with the G36 battle rifle (requiring complete replacement of ~170,000 rifles currently in use in the Bundeswehr), (2) a political scandal for involving the German Military Counterintelligence Service (MAD) to prevent critical reporting about the G36 being a lemon, and (3) a separate legal scandal for sending G36s to Mexico's drug gangs (violating Germany's war weapons control laws). H&K has also been in financial trouble for some time, flirting with bankruptcy two years ago and fearing an imminent take-over by another manufacturer. Promotional videos are just that, promotional. They don't tell you anything about the actual quality of the product or the reputation of the manufacturer.
