    Im amazed its published in English. HK usually expects their customers to learn German because you suck and…(relax Im kidding) I dont want to start another avalance of comments.

    This looks like they took the lessons learned from the 416/417 family, SCAR, and ACR, and built a rifle from them. I am interested to see where it goes, and it will be eventually available and supported in the U.S.. My only complaint is that they went keymod over M-lok, and the 9 o’clock rail interface may not work well with the charging handle.

    • Default.mp3 says:

      HKey is not compatible with KeyMod. I’ll also note that some of the other documentation that has been floating around says that M-LOK handguards are available upon request. H&K is an M-LOK licencee, by virtue of having of competed in (and winning) the CSASS program; hopefully someone will put in an order for the rifle and request M-LOK, and with some luck, maybe we’ll eventually see it stateside, given the new plant their building won’t be building M27s forever.

      agree, charging handle gives homage to the ole G3/MP5 but really see it in the way of anything on the top rail.

    • Huch says:

      Also looks like HK tried to top the SCAR on its FDE coloring. “People really seem to be responding well to the 3 different colors on the SCAR, so let’s take it to 11 and add a 4th shade of FDE on our cheek rest.”

      There is an M-Lok forend in the works as well. The charging handle is ambi, or can be mounted to either side.

      The support side forward charging handle is not only a return to the roots of the HK roller lock guns, it allows for manipulation while the rifle is shouldered. I bet they researched and demo’d the hell out of this before committing to the forward charging handle..

    The suppressor looks like a SureFire/Gemtech/KAC mashup. Is there any more info about it?

  4. John says:

    The suppressor I believe is a B&T Rotex.

  5. SwissTech says:

    The can is from B&T, no surprise there.

    Awesome info. Thanks SSD for posting this.

    Interesting that they’re advertising an optional round counter. Could be handy, especially if it is secured against someone trying to use it to find them in the field. Perhaps that’s a paranoid worry, but the world is weird.

    • CWG says:

      I read your post like four times and still can’t figure out what you think will happen or why.

      So probably yeah, too paranoid.

      The document states it’s RFID based, which means it has an effective range of a couple of inches, max. RFID is also a passive system, the RFID reader is what transmits the signal.

    • LCSO264 says:

      I believe the round counter feature is a requirement of some EU countries, but I could be mistaken on that.

  8. DangerMouse says:

    I noticed they list “green brown” as an optional color. Isn’t that the standard color the gear used by the tactical police units in Germany?
