Photo Of The Day: For those civilians who want a Heckler & Koch rifle in their collection there are a few options. In Germany, the home market for Heckler & Koch, and Europe the options are generally the MR223 or MR308. By some strange logic, the models are called 223 and 308 in Europe, and 556 and 762 in the United States. In Europe, these models have been very hard to come by lately, probably because H&K’s production is quite busy with military orders. I have one of the first MR223s, now with some minor upgrades.
You can find the MR223 in 16.5″ here: https://i-e-a.de/…/999/hk-mr223-a3-slim-line-16-5-sand
The MR308 with 16,5“ in “G28 look” here: https://i-e-a.de/detail/index/sArticle/1093
The price for the MR223 is €2.397,00 and for the MR308 €3.270,00.
If these versions aren’t scarce enough, you can try to source these ones: Civilian versions of the HK416F – MR223 F-S and MR223 F-C destined for France only.
