    Congrats on your MR556 btw . I've got the competition version. You don't see a lot of threads on the MR556 . They tend to get trolled a lot for barrel profile ( weight ) , no chrome lined barrel etc. Hopefully with the new plant being built in Ga. HK can get some Army contracts and get the MR into the fold. The MR556 would clean up in NRA High Power ! It's a very accurate rifle.

    Good news: The barrel's going to be chrome lined.
    Considering HK insist their barrels need no chrome lining it almost seems like a concession to internet whining. They really want to get it right this time.

    Got a source saying the barrel will be chrome lined?

    Yes. HK only produces CLB in their civilian and military long guns except those for the US civ market.

    Could it be because of export restrictions from Germany? What if they plan on selling them to civvies in the US and make them in the Georgia factory? Lot of "ifs", especially for HK but maybe, just maybe...

    Certainly possible, and desirable. Why stop at G36 mags, I would offer it for M4 style mags also.

    -HK says it is more reliable than the HK416. (THAT would be something to see).
    -There are options for other controls (flapper mag release) not currently offered with the HK416.
    -Other calibers to include .300BO, 7.62R, maybe an intermediate caliber, and 7.62mm NATO in the HK231.
    -The cocking handle is switchable ambi and doubles as an ambi forward assist.
    -In the end HK states it will be lighter than a comparable 5.56mm M4. We'll see.
    -The selector switch positions travel thru a 90 degree arc from safe - full auto.
    -The bolt does not require a buffer tube thus the ability of a side folder, shorter OAL, and possible modular stocks later
    -Lower cyclic rate of fire (to improve reliability when suppressed)
    -Integral round counter option (to date not yet shown on the HK416)
    -Developed for use with a sound suppressor and AGR (the HK416 was not and sometimes ran too fast).
    -Extruded aluminum receiver (monolithic)

    A partial list, I'm sure I could come up with more.

    The barrel is not "quick change" (changes out like the HK416 with a mandrel and wrench) and an M-LOK hand guard is coming. Undoubtably there will be a 7.62mm lower for various magazines depending on customer demand, SR25/M110 and HK417 likely.

    I predict this will have a US IP design under a different acronym (HK833 maybe (HK416 and HK417 combined - 509Rangers math, not mine) and be made in Georgia when the plant is up and ready (1-2 years).

    Remember when I said good things were coming?
    1. US Plant (US made product, parts not importable from Germany)
    2. HK433 (and variants)
    3.
    4.
    5.
    (don't ask what the others are).
