Introduced in 1982, the Ameli is a blowback-operated light machine-gun based on the roller-locked bolt design of the CETME and HK rifles. It features an integral bipod, an easily-changed barrel, and a rate of fire that can be adjusted between two settings by making a minor internal change. It is compact and easy to strip and assemble. A lightweight version that makes maximum use of alloy components is available. The Ameli is in service with the Spanish and Mexican armies.
