POTD: Heckler & Koch MR308

    Thanks to Dickson Ly for sending this our way. The MR308 has an interesting handguard. It looks like the MR556 handguard extrusion but just a lot longer. The bare section at the front of the hand guard is an odd choice. I do not understand why a shooter would want the picatinny rail closer to the center of the gun. You can see the top rail goes all the way to the front. But the sides and bottom rails do not. I would think having a bipod out further would be more stable. Also having side rails close to the front would eliminate barrel shadow of flashlights. I suppose this weapon is not used for such activities.
