Heckler & Koch HK416 internals video

This video shows the internals of the H&K HK416. One nifty feature is that the handguard screws were designed so that they could be unscrewed using the bolt lugs. The video is well worth watching.

Video was made by GunWebsites.

The civilian HK416 is expected to arrive next year.

[ Many thanks to the reader who emailed me the video. ]

    " The piston rings are about the only thing that need to be lubricated, other than that, the whole system can run dry."

    I think the last time someone said that about a rifle meant to be issued to troops, we ended up trying to find a way to replace that system.
