H&K HK416A5 Photos

The folks at 762PR Defence PR Marketing sent us some photos of the H&K HK416A5. The A5 model was unveiled late last year and incorporates some of the features H&K developed for the H&K G28 DMR (which is itself based on the HK417).

          That woould be a lie

            No, it’s only American customer service that really hates us. The rest of the company simply wants to build and sell cool stuff.

          Which is exactly why they aren’t making all those guns we want in their US plant, import/export laws are stopping them.

          Oh wait…

          • Alex C.

            They can’t make them in the US plant. The German government effectively owns all patents on firearms designed/produced in Germany. Hell, it took 7 years for Germany to get the neutered MR556 here to the USA. Look for my upcoming article on this!

          • floppyscience

            So were the P30 and HK45 not designed in Germany? Both of those are made in the US as well as Germany.

          • Alex C.

            Even the p30 and hk45 took a long time to get approved! However German export laws and US import laws are much more lax on pistols. However, it still hurts; the hk45ct was designed, made, and is built right here in the USA. I think you will enjoy my upcoming article about this stuff, I did a lot of research about this kind of crud!

      is that the new “HK cause’ u suck and we hate you” ?
      Someone explain this sh*t to me? 🙂

  • MNOR

    IMO, the most heart-warming changes they’ve made to the HK416 is:

    – New stock, the old standard HK-stock had a way to wide profiled butstock.
    – They got rid of those God-awful flip ut front-sights that was previously attached to the gasblock, and instead clamped it on the barrel.
    – Gasblock itself changed out; The old one was a bit finnicky.

    I love it when manufacturers actually listens to the end-users!

    The guy in the funky camo has Polish flag on the shoulder O.o

    • Bartek

      It’s ATACS-AU and yes, the flag is Polish.

  • J_Kusanagi

    Back to traditional style AR slanted magwell (shorter in front than back)? Does this mean the HK416A5 can now take standard — erm, I mean original style — PMAGs now?
