Brazilian Federal Police Special Forces (C.O.T) Adopt H&K416

A reader from Brazil sent us these photos of the 10.5″ barreled H&K416 used by the Brazilian Federal Police Special Forces (C.O.T). It looks like they are using EO Tech holographic sights and a laser/light designator (which I can’t identify).



Thanks for Eduardo for the photos.

    Like many SWAT and Spec Ops may not be a adopt or more of adding them to there arsenal.

  • Montrala

    Looks A5’ish (w/o ambi lower) to me. There is A5 trigger guard and I think I see gas block adjustment knob in front of handguard. If it is A5, the barrel is 11.5″.

    I’m brazilian and the news on 8th this month had shown an operation to arrest a group of hired killers. It caught my atention when I saw their rifles, “Is that a HK 416?” I wondered.

    Now I kmow 🙂

    By the way, have a look at how our Federal Police deals with single-engine airplanes full of drugs (the hardcore way):
