    Default Update

    Update on the situation with the SWAT Team and their problematic HK416's:

    Posted today on 10-8:
    Well, H&K is taking all 25 rifles back and sending us new ones; they were not able to diagnose the source of the malfunctions here. They understood our confidence issues with the rifles and decided to take all of them back even though most of them functioned perfectly. A new batch will be en-route as soon as the ATF issues are hashed out. It appears that the hiccup in customer service was caused by some personnel changes at H&K that coincided with our malfunction issue. Whatever the case they have pledged to make it right and ensure that we are satisfied with their rifles.

    When the new ones arrive my team members will put them through their paces. It’s going to be a brutal trial for those new rifles to win back my team’s confidence. Hopefully they will survive the scrutiny. When the new ones arrive and get to the range I will post the results.

    It is my understanding that a DI AR requires the user to "crack open" the bolt and let the water drain from the gas tube. Firing it without doing that is a major no-no and leads to catastrophic failure. So, in fact, you can not pull an M4 out of the water and start firing. You have to drain the gas tube. How often does anyone in the land of the civilian ever need to do that? I'd say...um...probably never. How often does the special forces teams equipped with the HK416 need to do this? Probably more often than we will ever know about.

    And if I would have referenced the video and made my comment somebody surely would have popped this thread's link up. :)
