Good shooting Fargo!
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."
@baljar That's really interesting, I've never heard about actual interest from Rheinmetall or Honosthor in HK. Is that a rumour you've heard or just speculation? It would solve all problems for HK in an instant. However, I would expect both companies to not focus on civvies too much, if at all.
Rheinmetall just partnered up with Steyr for the Bundeswehr tender (the RS556, an AR15-turned AUG) and definitely would have bigger troubles exporting. So Netherlands-based Honosthor would be the more likely candidate.
(sorry for the OT)
Standing by for news from SHOT...
What is/was MSRP on the MR556 when they were readily available in the past? I'm having a hard time gauging based on GB sell prices.
HK-91, HK-93, USC/UMP Conversion, SL8, G36C, HK45, HK45C, VP9, P30L, USPC 9mm, DJ Getz 94, Omega MP5SD, Vector 53, Vector 51, Cetme Sporter, C93, C93 Pistol, TD-415 (416 Clone), GSG9 416C clone.
Buds had one for 2757.00 back when supply started to get low then after I seen them for 3K or more.
Over at the M4 Carbine forum they are doing a number on the MR556 barrels. Leading the charge is some guy named "Grant." They seem to dislike the MR556.
