HK listened (I guess) and are coming out with a version that will work on MILSPEC lowers, not a proprietary one. They will also be selling uppers as well. The HK IAR won the USMC IAR trials. I'd like this version myself but it probably won't happen. Anyhoo, pics below thanks to SMGLee.

HK MR556A1


HK IAR



HK MR762

Very nice. So the 416 will use standard lowers? good for H&K. The 417 will have a unigue magazine design correct? Thank you sir!

Not quite. The civilian version of the 416 is the MR556. There will be a version of the MR556's upper reciever that accepts normal AR lowers. Someone correct me if im wrong?

They both (416 and MR556) can fit on a standard AR lower

Too bad they don't make the H&K 94 anymore.

I wonder how much the upper will cost? It will probably be around $2000 or even greater. Still might be

an ok deal considering the quality of HK products. They should definitely sell the MR762 uppers and

either make them compatible with SR25 mags or allow some AR manufacturers to make lowers that

will take HK mags.

I have that MR556 on preorder

And if I didn't already am calling dibs on the review and comparison with a regular AR.

I want the HK417  I still wish they would have gone with the old G3 mags, but it looks like a great deer rifle.

416 & MR556A1 will fit standard AR lower. MR556 will not. That is what the sign in the first pic says. Probably will be a non-issue, as we will only see MR556A1 guns in the US.

I'll buy one if it's $2k or less.
