Believe it or not this promo video was made in the late 50's

Yeah I am sure glad, LAPD wasted tax dollars replacing AR's with the 416. Since they need a rifle that holds up to salt water and sand submersion.

Simple, it was too ahead of its time. The army brass in those days wanted something like a garand so we got the M14 instead of the AR-10.

I think you are missing the point. :sleeping:

See all those 'tests' they do with the HK416 like burying it in and sand and mud, taking it over the beach. They did it all back in the 50's with a regular old DI gun! Now HK comes doing the same thing 50 years later calling it "revolutionary" and "the weapon of the future" :rolleyes:

And I buy every word of it!! ;)

The original post was meant to drip sarcasm. Hard to do on the intranet.

Umm yes that is their new rifle... All hail the 416. Working in the ghetto I have yet to see LAPD fire a rifle ever.

H&K has great salesmen!

I think we should have the Brady bunch outlaw the Future Weapons show. Every time a small arm appears on the show, I want to buy it!
