    Default 416 clone build & efile

    I have been working on a HK416 clone using a Brownell's BRN-4 and a 416 upper. I currently have an SB3 brace on the build while I wait for tax stamp approval. In order to keep this HK I have included pics of the build so far. Also as a side note I want to keep those that are interested in the efile times updated. I started filling out forms and getting fingerprints and photos on 4/16/19. I had everything gathered and completely submitted in efile as of 4/17/2019 this included paying the $200 tax online. Once the Form 1 was completed online I received an email to send in with my fingerprint cards. I received this email right after I submitted the Form 1. Notes: Pictures, trust etc for upload cannot be larger than 3mb each. The email you get back once the Form 1 is submitted will have an attachment, you cannot see this attachment on your phone or ipad, you need to open the email on a computer. This attachment is what needs to be printed and sent in with your fingerprint cards. The fingerprint cards must be the blue applicant (FD-258) older versions that have the old ORI number stamped on them are accepted because once they are received by the NFA they put a sticker over the old info with the new info on it. My fingerprint cards were mailed 4/18/19 and delivered 4/19/19. as of this post I am still in the "submitted" phase.

    The 416 is as I stated a Brownell's BRN-4 lower that I bought from them stripped. I had to wait for about 2ish months because I ordered when they were out of stock. I believe this was only due to the receiver still being done at PWSs facility. Once I got it I researched triggers and I decided to go with an ALG trigger. I completed the lower with the ALG and a standard AR15 lower parts kit. The buffer retainer, buffer retainer spring were purchased from one location and the buffer retainer roll pin from another. These three parts seem to be getting harder to find. I then put the SB3 brace on with a larger HK castle nut then the 416 upper I got from another member here. I used a Tango Down BG16 grip because I like the "older" 416 look. Once the build was about 95% done (5% for sights, optics etc) I test fired and was very happy. So happy that I have since acquired another BRN-4 stripped lower and I am working on it now, while I wait for the NFA to do their thing.

    Nice build. I like the old-school Tango Down grip too.

    I have a pair of HK sights on it. Still working out what I want to do for an optic. An Aimpoint on a low mount will probably be what I do, but next time I am out at my LGS, I'm bringing it along to check a few other optics.
    Own: HK91, SR9, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, P8, 2x P8A1, USP9
    Future: Done, until HK comes out with something new & nifty. Might start building an FNH collection.

    Not being a jerk and not trying to be un-helpful but this info is being withheld by me out of respect for the gentleman that did it. He had someone burn him over something stupid. (His story and business so I wont put anymore out there than that). Dont know anyone else. Alot of engraver info, I have learned, is played close to the chest so HK doesnt decide to give them (the engraver) grief over logo use, by unwashed mere mortals such as a stop using our sh!t letter.
