View Full Version : HK 416

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.

DAMN! Oh well... know of any lookalikes?
you could build a early 416. it used mostly ar parts. look for the pics on hkpro.. it has a page with the evolution of the 416.
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.)
