    Default The HK 416 in 6.8 spc?

    Is HK going to make the 416 in the 6.8 spc caliber?

    They did a small trial batch of them. HKPRO.com member G3Kurz may know more about that.

    Considering FN has only built one SCAR in 6.8 and even that rifle was not actually requested by SOCOM I highly doubt HK went through the trouble to make many 6.8 416's.

    I've read that they did indeed have a few test models in 6.8. I doubt if it will actually be mass produced though....

    Imagine the value of one of those uppers if someone got their hands on one legally....

    Wink An HK416 upper in 6.8?? That would be the ultimate!

    An HK416 in 6.8? The HK416 reliability and the better 6.8mm caliber would be the best thing our troops could do!

    They could use both a better general issue rifle and in a more effective general issue caliber.

    Those will be as rare as can be and probably cost three times as much as the current uppers-if they ever had a chance of getting out to anybody that is.

    I wonder what barrel and twist rate they would be using if they did in fact make a few in 6.8 SPC.

    Here are two PDF's that make note of a 6.8mm variation from HK.

    If a solicitation is put out for a 6.8mm weapon system, you can bet HK will in all likelihood submit a 6.8mm HK416. Until then, since there is no need for one, I wouldn't count on seeing one produced.

    Smile That's quite a report!

    That's quite a report and I hope that Congressman from Oklahoma sees it!
    I agree that the 6.8mm is a much better general issue round. Currently we are undergunned with the 5.56mm.
