Dickson from North Sylva Co., a Canadian gun importer, sent us photos of their new HK243 S TAR in .223 Rem … which I guess means our lucky cousins to the North are now able to buy the HK243! (UPDATE: The HK243 is yet to be available for sale to civilians as it has yet to be classified by the Canadian government, this was a dealer sample).
The HK243 is a modern sporting version of the H&K G36. The main differences between the HK243 and the G36 is that these consumer rifles are, obviously, semi-automatic but have nicer furniture than the older dated military variants. The S TAR version (pictured here) has a folding/adjustable stock and a nice looking quad rail while the cheaper S SAR has a polymer forend without rails and a folding, but not adjustable, stock.
