With a side folding AR stock adapter and slimline A5 stock, it would look worlds better. I think it's cool looking though. I'd buy a SCAR or ACR made by HK any day or the week :)
I honestly wouldn't want this gun if all it had were those short handguards.
Short handguards and a pencilly barrel sticking out over a foot out of them just looks like an SBR to me.
A "Sarah Brady Rifle."
The 416 is much more attractive to me in many ways. Principal among them is that I get to choose what I want up front.
But what I really dislike in this one is the buttstock.
It looks like orthopedic boots. That whole FN SCAR look just looks retarded to me.
Hopefully, the price of the MR762 will drop once this is available.
AND they only would have to extend the upper part of the bolt, so 'basing' on the G36/HK50 bolt isn't that far off.
What I would like to know: especially from the 'gray room' picture (S/N 10), the lower seems to extend quite a bit farther to the front than the mag-well (straight section between magwell and handguard). Is this an indication that the same upper receivers will be used for other calibers with longer cartridges/mag-wells/lower receivers?
Or would that be counter intuitive, since .308/7,62x51 calls for a stronger receiver?!?
The guessing-game continues
The difference is in the fact that the HK MR series sold in Europe is made in Germany. In the US the cost of imported firearms is increased by our import regulations, freight, customs bonded warehouse storage, and excise tax, among others. These add up and mean that the cost of the APC is slightly higher than in Europe.

The new HK Massada.
Too late HK, I already have a scar.
Oh boy another semi auto rifle we will never see. Where is my hk 293?
