    @bystok , can we please get a pic of each one of you guys and gals next to each different HK firearm being produced in that plant? I think that will surely keep this thread focused. Thanks in advance!

    No, I was in a remote location in AZ where my limited internet access prevented me from accessing this forum. Time between replies can be due to many variables so one shouldn't assume things.

    As to the rest of your post...it appears you are confused, as my use of the word "clone" was in relation to HK's copying the Stoner designed AR and offering it in their product line and has nothing to do with the roller-locked clones from PTR, Zenith, etc..

    No , I'm not confused . I get what you were trying to infer . My point was that since you don't own any HK products , the only value you might possibly bring to this discussion about HK's new plant in Columbus, GA. is absolutely Nothing ......... Zilch ! You're the go to clone BOY on this forum .

    I am well aware that I am hardly Rambo and have met many who would qualify.

    I only threw out my experience and pointed out his total lack there of in response to his claims that having a daddy who was a Marine somehow gave him special knowledge. Otherwise I rarely mention my service (on this or other forums) beyond the Semper Fi under my name.


    Do some research on the HK416 (search YouTube) as Larry Vickers has a video that will provide you with the details you lack. Here's a clue - the AR-18 wasn't what SpecOps was looking for.
    Those details you assume I don't know and want me to look up only prove what I have been saying. The HK416 is simply a clone of the AR weapons series, albeit one made to tighter tolerances with a few minor tweaks. None of what HK did with the 416 was groundbreaking nor is it the only AR style rifle that produces sub-MOA accuracy or military grade reliability. HK states the 416's piston design was based on the one from their G36 BUT go back further and the G36 piston was derived from the one in the AR18's 1963 design. Dress it up all you want but underneath the lineage is pure AR.

    My point wasn't that the HK ARs are bad weapons, hell I'm glad the Corps is buying more (hence the big reason for that new factory) I was simply making the factual observation that HK 's current rifles are indeed simply just another AR variant. And I have zero interest in owning an AR style rifle, no matter whose name is stamped on it.

    I might not own any BUT I did indeed use them during my time in the Marines (for more then just a few range trips with a safe queen) so I am hardly unfamiliar with HK's products. Plus my lack of ownership in no way negates the simple fact that HK's current rifle offerings are just another take on the AR and their newest pistols are not any different then the myriad of other poly guns on the market.

    As to the plant, like I pointed out WAY back in this thread, the increased fielding of the IAR by the Marines and now Army requires a US based manufacturing capacity that the Georgia plant will meet.

    Hey, Yoga can be a lot more dangerous than it seems. In all fairness to Stevie, I did poke at the caliber of his service. You see, if he had the character to man-up and admit that he misinterpreted what I said, rather than insult me as a means to diflect the issue, all would have been good. My whole point about him was his lack of integrity and how disappointing that is of someone who apparently has served in the USMC. And yes, my daddy the three war veteran (WWII, Korea, VN) did teach me integrity, taking responsibility, and admitting when you made a mistake. These are things Stevie didn't learn in the Marines, but I don't blame the Corps, it was obviously too big a hurdle for his parents.

    I'm sure that bullet passing by his head was a terrifying experience for him. My looking down the nose of the jet coming straight at me, it's wing impaling itself in the railing I was leaning against, was child's play. I never missed the holidays sleeping in some hell of a location half way around the world. Yes, I worked behind a desk to support the fleet with missiles and carrier based aircraft, but that's no comparison to the men and women who are put in situations where they don't know if they are going home standing up or in a box.

    .

    So if you don't own any HK products. You think HK products are no different than any other products on the market. Why are you even on this forum. No disrespect but if I'm into American muscle cars I'm definitely not going to be spending my time on a Porsche forum.

    I think we all know the answer to that question.

    Let’s see a photo of the first US produced HK293 receiver! I have a G36C kit patiently waiting.
