Without question the HK416 is the gas piston M4 variant that all others are measured against - it is the most successful and the most proven. It's use by SOF units around the globe speaks for itself. It wasn't the first of its type, but it is clearly the best. In this segment from Season 2 of TAC-TV, Robbie Reidsma, from HK USA, and I compare the HK 416 with its civilian counterpart the MR 556.

  • I heard the MR556 is garbage. There's a forum of dudes who regularly torture test ar-15's and push them to their limits. One guy bought an MR556 that started key holing at 10,000 rounds.

  • The length of its barrel makes the bullet faster not more accurate

  • The USMC seems hell bent on back door adopting the 416. Its neat, and I can see benefits to the 416 in sustained automatic fire and using barrels 12 inches in length or less. Unfortunately both those mean nothing to JQ Civilian due to current law. For the money Hk wants on the MR556 a quality ar15, magazines, ammo, and training can be purchased. And that is a much better value. Until we have phase plasma rifles, but Ill bet they'll be banned as distructive devices. By the by, what is it about the m4 and m4a1 that the marines hate so much? They held on to the m16a4 to avoid going to it, and as stated, are back dooring the m27 (416) to get away from it asap.

  • It really doesn't seem fair to every other gun manufacturers in the world, once you've owned an hk there just simply isn't anything else that gives you that feeling that no matter how much shit hits the fan, your hk is always ready to go..

  • Can you buy a new 416 and throw the upper on to a old full auto registered lower by Colt or whoever? Basically, is it mil spec m16 compatible. Never mind they just answered my question at the end.

  • Why not use a bullpup. That seems perfect for CQB

    Reply
  • Apart from the lack of the chrome lining, it actually sounds like the MR556 has some advantages over the 416. Also couldn't HK of just pinned and welded the flash hider to a 14.5in barrel to make it "16in"?

  • French Army has this rifle as service rifle since 2017. They researched hard for a better gun than the FAMAS, and went with this one.

  • So can you extend the barrel of the HK416?

    Reply
  • Forgive my ignorance, I'm a total newb building my FIRST STANDARD AR. Does the piston style system create more velocity upon the projectile, being all the Gas goes out the barrel rather then a large percentage being used to push the BCG back to chamber a new round?

  • why not just adopt a bullpup style rifle for cqb? better balance and compact. not to mention it is able to use a full length barrel.

  • Honestly, I like HK416 better than the M4. German quality and weaponry always awesome; hardly any issues that the M4 usually suffers. Although I feel there's only one flaw of the HK416: the cartridge. No offense, but don't you guys think the 5.56 is weak? I feel it's better off with something like the 6.8 SPC or the 6.8 UCC by Kramer Defense?.

  • IMO best of its kind/ purpose in the world. But still not worth the money, you could get a SCAR 16/17 for thousands cheaper, and the SCAR is not as good but still world class.

  • is this the Jäger weapon from Rainbow Six Siege?

    Reply
  • the only difference is one has a shorter barrel and an auto sear the other 16" and no auto sear. Piston uppers have lost all their "hype" they once had, but they are nice. Remember a few years back when they were all the rage and then they quietly went to the back burner? HK and PWS I thick have the best piston design

  • Chrome lining ensures the barrel will last with full auto fire. Look at battlefield las vegas, their mr556 rifles had shot out barrels after 10000 rounds of full auto! Make mine chrome!

  • All of you that complain about the MR556 not having a chrome-lined barrel, you gotta remember HK didn't just manufactured a barrel and that's it. It isn't a CHF barrel, because HK put their own proprietary finish, which replaces the CHF. But I still got complains about the rifles. The MR556 being an excellent rifle performance-wise, HK fucked up with the design. 1. Why did they remove the Delta ring system for handguard attachment? It would've been much better to have a D-ring on the rifle like any other standard AR to attach all of the commercially available handguards. 2. Why did they changed the BCG and upper receiver dimensions between the military and civilian versions? 3. Proprietary barrel can be great for performance shooting, but in a SHTF situation, I want to have the possibility of changing my AR barrel for another one. With HK's proprietary barrel profile and chamber, I can't. But the MR556's barrel is extremely durable, so I guess it isn't much of a problem.

  • Does anyone make short barrels for mr556? Can you get a 12 or 14 without buying a 416 upper?

  • Too much disrespect here for Larry Vickers. Do some homework on the man. To me he is an American hero and patriot. Finest firearm I ever owned was the Vickers 1911 from Nighthawk. He had a lot of input on that gun and it was a true gem.
