I used to be obsessed with this gun, but after some thinking, it was just the pictograms on the lower and the rail system I like. Pictograms I already have an OLL for, but I still can't find the maker of the rail system. My best guess would be VLTOR.
Anyone here know?

It is a proprietary HK rail.

It will not fit on any other upper: the upper for a HK416 is about 1/8th of an inch taller than a standard flat-top to clear the piston. The rail therefore is also an 1/8th of an inch taller.

Piston Uppers:

LWRC (One of the best Piston Uppers that you will get that is very close to the 416)

POF (Next in line, but has a taller top rail due to their piston design)

LMT (Really Cool New Piston Upper)

CMMG (Piston Upper coming soon)

HK416 Upper (there are some guys selling them for around $3k now. These were selling for $4k+ only 3-6 months ago, so expect the prices on the 416 uppers to come down more once HK releases the 416 for civilian sales.)
