    Because barrel extensions can't be run on a $80,000.00 5 axis?

    EOD - I don't think they had the budget. Their entire army is smaller than many police forces here.

    Exactly, the upper/lower fit is of the best feature of the rifles.

    That's why I own 4 of them;-)

    Well for that and because I wanted one of everything length (416 10.4", 416 14.5", MR556 16" and 416 20"). 4 great tastes that taste great together!

    If I could only obtain the M27 16.6" made of unobtainium, or at least at a price I'm willing to pay and without risk of it being a stolen Military barrel/upper. ;-)

    I do like the .5MOA accuracy and the ability to rebarrel it whenever I want, since I go through about 4K a year. The gun has about 30K through it on six barrels, three gas blocks and four gas tubes.

    It's still shooting great, but it's definitely getting tired, the lower is somehow tweaked and is hard to put together or dissassemble so I'm starting to look around.

    I wish HK made an 18" barrel, accuracy focused DMR version of the MR556. I'd love to try that, but for now I have an MR556 upper inbound.

    Nobody with the budget seems to walk past the HK for direct impingement. The gun is on a winning streak.
    The MR556 is already a DMR. What's the sticking point with 18"? You realize you're only losing 100fps tops, right?

    No wait the stock barrel length is 16.5", so we're talking 50-75 fps?

    By that logic, why not a 14.5?

    The guns it's competing against are hitting accuracy nodes typically from 2700-2800fps with heavy bullets.

    My MR556 is throwing Hornady 75's at 2646.

    The course of fire routinely demands shots on head sized targets out to 700Y, and every advantage on beating the wind is welcome. If they offered a 20" I'd take that.

    ETA - If you meant this to be toward actual/field use, I would agree, but I'm speaking strictly competition.

    The gun is definitely a shooter. This was at 200Y. The squares are 1".

    I'm competing with it this Sunday because my regular rifle is down for the count.

    The problem is, if the MR556 came in 14.5, it would need to have a permanently attached muzzle device. to make an OAL of at least 16"

    Of course. I'm speaking more of velocity concerns with that as a hypothetical.

    You can buy the A1. They are starting to import more of those.
