Just finishing my HK 416 build and Brownells is tempting me with their 417 kit-was holding out for a .308 Bren but that hasn’t happened yet...(I know) and I thought I could do lots worse for my firsts .308 then a 417. Brownells’ has their last kits on sale right now. My questions are 1) are the B clones pretty good accuracy wise with the Brownells’ barrel and 2) now isnt a great time for me to jump into the 417 kit, how likely is it that I will be able to pick up a 417 upper in the future for a reasonable price? The upper parts are on GB for crazy prices. Thank you in advance for you thoughts

Well, Brownells sold out around the time I posted-We’ll see if they come back in...-I was also interested if anyone had experience with putting the kit together with the Brownells barrel. Looked pretty nice.
As for getting them back in, unless they held back inventory, don't count on it. What they got was a one-time deal unless they find another overseas cache.

Please update if you hear a resolution on the barrels. I noticed the GB cut is to far forward. I wish they had barrels without the gas port drilled.
I got my order in under the wire. The kit sold out pretty quickly. I’m surprised they were listed as on sale.
I’d like to build the parts kit as an assaulter upper. I saw another post where the OP did a very sexy job, but no range report as of yet.

Boo, well I should have moved on it sooner. Maybe Ill do a WTB on here at some point, someone might have an extra kit. Thanks on the heads up on the barrels, I was going to buy a lower, bolt and barrel with the hope to score a kit in the future. I guess Ill hold off on the barrel. Any issues with the bolts now?
