    This seem to be a pretty heavy rifle as well.. 8.55lbs WOW... I wonder if this is due to heavy barrel profile.

    Probably not. It's because they put a lot of aluminium around the receiver to mitigate the overheating issue.
    See the patent here. Sorry, it's only available in german at this time.

    ^ I see. I guess this means it is no longer a "polymer rifle". M4A1 with heavy SOCOM barrel + rail weight less than this.

    But WHY, though? They already have the 433, unless the 233 is at the request of the German military to improve the G36 until they can find a new rifle?

    The german military has a call for tenders for a new rifle running. I don't think that the Bundeswehr's G36s will be upgraded. But HK has other existing customers and the german government will very likely give away the Bundeswehr's G36s cheaply.
