google is your friend...
Just read that Uncle Sam's Misguided Children are going forward with the M27. Good enough for me. I have a NFA M-16 style lower. Would love to put HK on top (God that sounds kinky!). The question is... will the full auto still function?
Thanks in advance for any information you have!

Try to get your hands on the 416A5, they were re-designed to work excellently with 3rd party AR lowers/uppers. Civilian product line models will not work with FA/Burst lowers/uppers.
I was afraid of that. HK being their usual dork selves in that regard. I've seen two 416 uppers for sale so far, one was $4K the other $5K. Practically need to sell the NFA lower to afford the upper.
I put a 416 upper on my m16a1 lower works great.
I poked around with this idea for a while and eventually (upon recommendations here) went with an LWRC 10.5" upper for my M16 rr. Overall, teh cost to take an MR556 upper, mod it to run FA got to be somewhat cost prohibitive.
You know I considered this as well for my Hydromatic M16 RR but then kind of sat back and rethought. I've actually gone the other way the last few years on my uppers - started out with pricey PWS uppers and then realized I was burning up the barrel shooting paper with cheap ammo at 25 yards on a range. Short of a zombie apocalypse, it would be the last weapon I'd grab for serious defense. Like why? Got a screaming deal on a Colt upper <$500 and shoot it until it smokes. I think the HK 416 is just my unhealthy fascination (gun addiction) with high speed gear writ large. At any rate, love to have one but not at these prices. Matt
