The Last Wooden H&K MP7 Replica Is Now Available For Sale

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Late last week, we featured an article on a highly-detailed MP7 wooden replica created by UK-based artist Jenni Edwards. Ms. Edwards contacted us to let us know that it, and a G36 replica, had both sold. However she managed to find one last MP7 replica that she is currently selling on her Etsy page. She has stated that this is the last MP7 replica she will ever make and sell, so if you’re in the market for one, here’s your final opportunity. The original article follows:

Jenni Edwards, a UK-based artist, creates highly detailed laser cut and laminated scale models of modern firearms. Her works include 2 models of the SCAR which are currently in the FNH Belgian HQ, as well as MP7 models which were produced for the UK’s Royal Armouries. The latter model is what’s currently available for sale via Edwards’ Etsy shop, ‘Splintersell’. The model is made of maple and birch, and features fully moving parts, including:

  • Removable magazine
  • Retractable buttstock
  • Retractable charging handle
  • Trigger which releases the hammer

    The model also features a functioning green dot sight, a removable suppressor, and weapon accurate markings.

  • SOFIC – Handl Defense Introduces SR25 Magazine Magwell Adapter For HK417

    Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

    Handl Defense has been making accessories for the FN SCAR for years and thought they’d try their hand at Heckler & Koch weapons. A common complaint of the HK417 is that it requires proprietary magazines. Not anymore.

    Thanks to Handl’s new 417-M110 magwell adapter, the weapon will now accept SR25 pattern magazines like this one from Magpul. The HK417’s magwell is already oversized to accommodate the thick walled H&K magazine, so there’s plenty of room for the patented insert. It also uses a new magazine release.

    IWA – H&K Solicits IWA Attendee Feedback for Next Commercial Rifle Project

    Friday, March 3rd, 2017

    H&K has employed pollsters to query IWA attendees in their booth on which rifle project they should undertake next.

    Attendees are shown prospective rifles in wood or gray composite stocks and asked to questions about which they would prefer H&K to introduce in the future. Additional options include Carbon Fiber furniture as well as wuations about Picatinny rails and sight systems.  The weapons are all semi-auto and are based on previous designs such as the MR308 and G3. No word on when, or if, the decision will be made to offer one or more of these prospective designs.

    Enforce Tac – H&K Unveils New .300 Rifles – HK237 and HK337

    Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

    At Enforce Tac, H&K has introduced two new weapons. The HK237 is a .300 Blk/Whisper variant of the G36 and the HK337 is a .300 Blk/Whisper version of the HK416. Unfortunately, both are currently only intended for military and police markets and offered as full auto weapons, but the .300 cartridge is picking up steam here in Europe. Perhaps we’ll see civilian versions yet.

    Below is a photo of the HK237 which is kept under glass with bright lights shining on it to deter photography. You’ll note the folding stock which features a cutout to allow firing while wearing a ballistic visor. Both rifles incorporate 9″ barrels.

    When I asked about a .300 version of the recently introduced H433, I was told it was in the works.

    BREAKING: USMC Begins Process To Issue M27 IAR to Every Rifleman; Issues RFI To Industry

    Friday, February 10th, 2017

    Earlier today MARCORSYSCOM issued “Request for Information (RFI) M67854-17-I-1218 For Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM), Quantico, VA Infantry Automatic Rifle (IAR)”. They are very clear at this point that is solely an initiation of market research under Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 10 and is NOT a Request for Proposal (RFP). To be clear, issuing an RFI is a natural step in the acquisition process.

    This action comes after a short duration experiment last Fall during which, an entire Marine Infantry Battalion was equipped with the IAR instead of their issue M4s. The experiment was obviously a success.  At the time there was still no requirement but apparently, they’ve worked that out and lined up funding to make this happen.

    As the RFI only calls for the production of an additional 11,000 rifles, this means that only additional select Infantrymen will be issued the M27. Conversely, the Marines purchased over 45,000 M4 carbines. When the M27 IAR was initially selected, the Marines had undertaken a study to determine what it would cost and how quickly the manufacturer H&K, could build the rifles in order to pure fleet the service. At the time, H&K did not have the production capacity to meet the Marine Corps’ fielding timeline so the plan was scrapped. This new move may very well be incremental in nature, with further fielding taking a longer timeline and encompassing a larger portion of the Marines.

    The 5.56mm M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle is manufactured by Heckler & Koch. It is based on their HK416 carbine and was fielded to the Marines to supplant beltfed the M249 SAW in the Rifle Squad. This RFI will assuredly be used by SYSCOM to create a a sole-source “Justification and Approval” in order to purchase the rifles directly from manufacturer H&K without going for an open solicitation. While the RFI describes the M27’s salient characteristics to a “T”, what may throw a monkey wrench in this plan is if another manufacturer or two claim they can build the weapons as well with a model based on a 416 clone.

    We will watch this procurement closely and keep you updated on its progress. Offerers have until March 17th at 3:00 PM to respond.
