    Not only have I seen one, I held it and fondled it lovingly at SHOT a couple of years ago.

    HOWEVER -

    The one you want is the HK417 - the .308 bigger brother. Talk about one bad *** piece of kit!

    They are damn pricey though, and that is IF you can get one imported into the US.

    Last I checked, and I haven't done so lately, they are not for sale here...:(

    How can you watch that video and not be sporting wood? My counter S.W.A.T. team will have these when we liberate Fort Knox.

    I only caught about the last 20 mins of it. Wish I wouldve seen the whole thing though. What I saw was pretty interesting.

    H&K MR556 and MR762: Civilian HK416 and HK417

    H&K fans rejoice. The HK416 / HK417 piston driven AR-15 derivatives are finally coming in a semi-automatic form for civilians. The civilian 5.56×45mm HK416 is called the MR556 and the 7.62×51mm HK417 civilian equivalent is the MR762. They are expected to arrive in late 2009.


    From HK:

    A direct descendant of the HK416, the MR556 is a semi-automatic rifle developed by Heckler & Koch as a premium level commercial/civilian firearm. Like the HK416, the MR556 is a major product improvement of conventional AR-type carbines and rifles.

    Using the HK-proprietary gas piston system found on the HK416 and G36, the MR556 does not introduce propellant gases and carbon fouling back into the rifle’s interior, making it the most reliable of any AR-type firearm.

    The MR556 will be produced at Heckler & Koch’s new manufacturing facility at Newington, New Hampshire from American and German made components. To conform to German export regulations, certain design changes made in the MR556 prevents the rifle’s upper receiver from being used on other AR-style firearms.

    So in other words this is not an AR-15 and in theory would not be banned as a named rifle on AWB 2.0.

    Specs for the MR 556 (HK 416)

    Caliber: 5.56 x 45 mm NATO
    Length, maximum (stock extended): 37.68″
    Length, minimum (stock retracted): 33.90″
    Overall width: 3.07″
    Height: 9.45″
    Barrel Length : 16.5″
    weight (without magazine): 8.60 lb
    Trigger pull : 7.64 lb
    Barrel Profile: 6 lands & grooves, right twist, 1 in 7 in
    Sight radius : 14.60″

    Oddly enough both models are being shipping with 10 round magazines, probably AWB 2.0 fears?

    Specs for the MR 762 (HK 417)

    Length, maximum (stock extended) : 39.10″
    Length, minimum (stock retracted) : 35.94″
    Overall width: 3.23″
    Height : 8.36″
    Barrel Length: 16.6″
    Weight (without magazine): 9.60 lb
    Trigger pull: 7.64 lb
    Barrel Profile: 6 lands & grooves, right twist, 1 in 12 in
    Sight radius: 16.14″


    I am impatiently waiting and continue to fill my piggy bank. :D

    Well....JD, I would never be able to pick your *** out of a line-up with them just so average, blase, unimpressive facial features. How do you find a hat for that ahhh.........freakishly large, but barely unnoticeable, but only a mother could love, square head? :confused:
