    Default HK416C build

    Not sure where to put this.....
    Has anyone attempted a HK416C build?
    I see the collapsible stocks at hkparts.
    If you have done a 'C' build, what did you do for the barrel?
    Did you cut a MR223 barrel all the way down to 'C' length? Who did this for you?
    Would love to hear any info that you have.

    I think the 416C still has a 10.4" barrel. I could be wrong.


    "...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."

    Actually, it is a shorter barrel than 10.4".....

    Anyhow. Good question and a picture to help you day dream while you're at work!

    Bigger problem is getting a C-length piston op rod, plus the correct gas block and knowing what size port hole you need drilled into the barrel.

    Hence the questions to see if anyone has done such a thing with a 'C' length barrel.
    Thanks for the photo

    Hi there. I'm assuming that this is not your gun (but if it is, then congrats!), but I noticed that this one has both the front and rear folding sights. I was wondering if you could tell me which height the front sight is on that so it will work with the folding rear. I'm planning on going this route for the sights on my 416, even though I will regret the lack of diopters.

    Sorry if this is hijack-y.

    That's a 10.4" front sight and it can also be used with the 10.4" Diopter. The barrel length on the 416C's were a little over 9 inches.

    Someone has what would be considered C length bbl on GB but the person has no clue who did the work or ?? Very Sketchy. There is a huge issue you will run into, gas port location, gas block location, op rod length, etc..
    The bbl is key, without that, pffftt

    Marvin Pitts but not sure he would want to play with it to get it to cycle properly.

    So, this is what a complete 416C looks like.

    This is a 416C lower for sale in Europe. How are the ends of the guide rods if you will held in place in the holes in the holes in the receiver?
