    Good shooting Fargo!

    @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)

    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.

    Two years ago when I bought my first two they were $3100 at Buds. They then started to drop. The lowest I saw them last winter and spring were around $2409-$2600.

    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.

    I'm sorry to say that from the prices I've seen lately for these are priced way out of my reach currently. Sadly, I considered buying one back in 2011 when prices were in the ball park of reasonable…. yet I decided to save a bit of money and get a Ruger SR-556. I know, epic fail… but not being rich sucks… I traded that gun off a year or two later. Here's to hoping HK's 2017 resolution is to keep the cost this side of insanity by either marketing it to sell more units or produce a large part of it stateside… would be nice but I understand supply and demand so I won't be holding my breath.
