Dickson was at H&K in Germany. While on tour, he had this photo taken of him wielding an H&K G28.

That was taken at the H&K Germany Showroom as they do not have a “grey room” there. It’s a smaller meeting room consists of mainly their current products.

 

Here is H&K’s blurb on the rifle.

The G28 is a military version of the civilian semi automatic competition rifle MR308. Deployed in the established 7.62 x 51 caliber, the “Designated Marksman Rifle” (DMR) ensures accuracy of 1.5 MOA whilst enabling a full night fighting capability.  Providing a maximum effective range and a high first round hit probability up to 600 meters, the G28 will also allow suppressive fire against man size targets accurately up to 800 meters.

With its green brown tone, the G28 offers a camouflage colour scheme that is being accepted around the world. An additional conversion kit supports user and mission specific requirements where the G28 can be configured to a Patrol version and be used as an Assault rifle.

    One should be issued to every able bodied American when they turn 15.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Have you been to a mall lately?
      Screw that.

      • plumber576

        If they were issuing these to 15 year olds I’d be at the mall trading them fidget spinners for rifles.

        • Ryfyle

          Nah. Kids love guns, there was an article all about New Zealand kids getting a visit from local military.

          • supergun

            In our city, we have 13, 14, 15 year olds trying to break in to steal guns.

      • Ryfyle

        The weak will see themselves out eventually.

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          Or into office.

      • Karl Vanhooten

        Or the riff-raff and gang-bangers now attending local gun shows?

        • throwedoff

          At our local gun shows. Many of the booths are set up by law enforcement personnel for a number of different reasons: retired leo’s selling guns and accessories, charity events, etc. Their is never a want for law enforcement presence at our gun shows. Every time I’m there I also see three or four of my fellow corrections officers as well.

          • Karl Vanhooten

            Yes, I’m in Alabama and you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a LEO working the show’s front door strapping triggers and ejection ports, strolling the floors (including undercover), etc., but there are elements attending shows these days one never saw before. BTW: North Birmingham and certain urban neighborhoods have one of the highest murder rates in the country.

        It’s only old people that walk fast with tennis shoes on at malls now last I heard.

    • Madcap_Magician

      Every able-bodied American when they turn 15? Well, the able-bodied qualifier writes off a third of them right from the get-go.

      • GaryOlson

        One third used to be disqualified due to polio, asthma, scoliosis, partial blindness, and a host of other medical problems which are now prevented. Now we have to work on preventing McDonaldoids, Burger Binge, and Videoscosis.

    • John

      I think the term you were looking for was able BRAINED.

      Not too many of those these day.

      • Ryfyle

        Give it a generation and Natural selection will sort it all out.

        • John

          Yeah but I don’t want to get caught up in the cleansing!

          • Ryfyle

            Well then get fit enough to survive.

          • John

            Does good aim count as fitness?

          • Ryfyle

            Not if you don’t have the Stamina to match.

          • John

            So your tellin’ me, that if I drive a mobile Howitzer that can hit a Gnat’s nuts at 30,000 meters, I STILL have to be able to run a decent 440? I quit.

          • Ryfyle

            Have fun.

        • John

          I hate to tell you but as a country, we are moving a the direction of ignorance and intolerance. That’s been going on for a quite a few years now. I see natural selection alright, but the dumbest humans are being selected so….

          • Ryfyle

            Ah so a Doom-saying fatalist are we?

          • Ryfyle

            let me guess you also hate walls and mid-western Farmers as well.

          • John

            Oh no, not at all, as a matter of fact, if I could get all the mid-western farmers together, I would love to build a wall around them! JK

            But seriously, we need farmers but if our education system in the U.S. wasn’t trash, they would not have voted for garbage. JMHO

          • Serge

            Garbage….only two useless candidates…how about Re-inventing the Democratic process by first eliminating Computer voting and second, find a Fit middle age (under 60 years old) candidate with Credentials, credibility and smarts to offer a right direction for the U.S.

          • Serge

            UNDER a Third New option Party…;-)

          • Serge

            Probably he does not…Watch out for China hidden agenda!

    • FactChecker90803

      Why must every able bodied American be issued a German Made Copy of AN American Rifle.. Why not every Able Bodied American be issued an LWRC Repr with a 6X48 ACOG.

      • John

        Or you could REALLY get your YEE HAW on and give them a POF 416!

    • supergun

      Excellent comment. Although I would start a 15 year out with an AR 16 M4.

  • randomswede

    So the MR308 has the same steel upper receiver as the G28?

    • Jason Culligan

      They’re the same rifle.

  • Jim Slade

    TFB Commenters: “Did anyone from HK customer service swear and attempt to urinate on him?

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      You have to pay extra for that in Germany.

      • John

        Actually, in Germany, that’s the “Basic” package.

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          Destroying Germany and Japan has created the worlds most bizarre porn.
          I hope they get over it.

            No… like bondage and sadomasochism.

            Geez, what the actual cheese grater is wrong with you?

          • Klaus Von Schmitto

            LOL – I like throwing that out there in the hope someone goes “gee, I wonder what that is” and looks it up. I think one person needed counseling afterwards.

          • Mr. C

            God damn it.

          • Klaus Von Schmitto
  • Sean

    Is HK going to be in business long enough to deliver these?

    • BillyOblivion

      The German Govt. will not let them go out of business.

      See Chrysler in the 80s. And 90s. And 2000s.

      • Taylor Hardin

        See the entire economy in 2008.

    • Some Guy

      HK is one the companies that arm the countries the German goverments want to have a stronger bond to or a at least fight their enemies(although this does not happen often after the cold war). There is no way that Germany would let a company that usefull die.

  • Joe

    When did FDE/Coyote become “green-brown”? I thought that color was called Olive Drab.

    • iksnilol

      That color they’ve got for sure ain’t olive drab.

    The next James Bond, everybody!

  • ShootingFromTheHip

    A one million dollar, one million pound rifle? Yup, must be an HK!

  • “If you’ll step this way, Mr. Bond…”

  • John

    I understand the need for suppressing fire but even 30 rounds will last about 2.8 seconds on full auto with most modern rifles. If this can take ammo belt fed or it has a 100 round mag available then I see the point.

    • Dave

      I think you might have missed the article you wanted to post on, because this one is about a semi auto only precision rifle…

  • Gun Fu Guru
    • iksnilol

      It’s somebody shooting with a rifle.

      • some other joe

        With an ACOG co-witnessed with an EOTech, apparently. 8|

        • iksnilol

          See no issue, looks like a QD mount. You probably detach the ACOG to use the EOTech.

      • KestrelBike

        With an eotech placed forward of an elcan?

        • iksnilol

          Yeah, should be problemfree if it’s off, no?

          Or maybe it isn’t an Elcan but an magnifier?

      • Gun Fu Guru

        ACOG and EOTech being on the same plane.

  • iksnilol

    Either that camera has hella good focus and stabilizer… or that guy is like in the top ten strongest guys ever.

  • LazyReader

    Why does that spokesman look like he smoked an entire pound of marijuana

    • jae34

      I suppose you live up to your name, that isn’t the spokesman…

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Have you seen our president?
    A game show host who loved Clinton and voted for her and then all the sudden hated her.
    I miss Bush.

    • iksnilol

      Yeah yeah, Trump is sorta bad… but I’m thinking globally in regards to education and crime rates and stuff like that.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        You’re right but all that progress can be wiped out by a few bad decisions by two powerful people.
        That’s scary.

        • iksnilol

          Indeed, that is scary.

          And to think, a nuclear apocalypse without power armor. *smh*

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I want extra cheese on my nukular apocalypse.

          • iksnilol

            I want no pickles on mine.

        • Serge

          Solution; Invent a NEW third Party option from the ground up, eliminate Computer voting system and get three Candidates to rule ONE PARTY, NO MORE ONE MAN SHOW sort of speak. These Candidate would have to have high standard of Consciousness, excellent Credentials, Credibility, and very smart in order to make the right decision to safeguard Earth strongest Nation. Once in power, to reformed (something Trump is trying to do to a lesser degree…) the U.S. politics and the Electoral selection Candidate process, who really is a Bad joke since the Truman era.

          • John

            Wait…can I walk on water and cure Cancer first, cause those would be a LOT easier to accomplish!

      • John

        Trump is “sorta bad” kind of like the 1918 Spanish flu was also “sorta bad”.

    • Serge

      Bush, Clinton…they are all puppet actors working for and life long members of the Bilderberger Clan…wake up, they control Banks and the world economy, they decide who goes to war and how long…

  • Wetcoaster

    Does that make the G28 the military version of a civilian version (HK MR308) of a military gun (HK 417)?

    • Jason Culligan

      G28 is it’s designation in German service. Kind of like how the AR15 is known as the M16/M4 in American service, C8 in Canadian service etc.

      • Wetcoaster

        I’m more referring to it being considered an MR308 dervivative instead of a 417 derivative.

  • Budi Utomo

    Great guns.

  • Joe Schmoe

    Get a life… There is a major difference between humor and bigotry.

  • Rocky Mountain 9

    Does anyone know why HK left the Picatinny rails on the front third of this handguard unfinished and unusable? This has always confounded me, since everyone typically wants to mount their lights, bipods, etc. as far forward as possible. I could understand doing the opposite — the Picatinny rails at the rear third of a handguard (especially on the sides) are pretty close to useless.

  • NukeItFromOrbit

    Why on earth did the Germans adopt this instead of the bog-standard HK417 which would be slightly lighter?

  • neckbone

    The Moslem invasion hasn’t got to your village over there in Europe I guess.

    • iksnilol

      Again, I don’t really worry about them. Norway is “nationalist” by default so we’re gonna be okay.

  • Lost Won

    I’ll take a Scar 17s as my go to for the 7.62. When HK Imports a civilian MP7 or finds a way to get the sp5k’s in the US with a threaded barrel I’ll give em another go.
