Well you can slap on your "franken" label to anyone who puts this non-HK adjustable gas block on their MR308/762 rifle than because it's not a German HK part!
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."
Because the MR556 and MR762 are not mil spec, therefore are "frankenrifles".
Exactly why I have not bought any of the newer HK rifles, since they are "civilian grade". Worse the barrels aren't even chrome lined. Hopefully with the new domestic plant opening- we can get more mil spec rifles for civilian use.

Any firearm built of after market parts. Usually used to refer to AR-15's or 1911's/clones. Common practice for shooters who like to "roll their own" so to speak.
a: Dude sweet AR, what kind is it?
b: Its a Bushmaster lower, Olympic upper and a DPMS barrel.
a: So its a franken-gun?
Urban Dictionary: franken-gun
Here's another example of frankenrifle consisting of generic AR parts from various online retailers that I built. The definitions some of you are using for a MR556 or MR762 as a frankenrifle are so off base I can't comprehend the thinking behind it.
I see! Honestly it's all good. Having an adjustable gas block available to the market is a nice add on in any case.
I guess you can extend this logic to the HK45 as well with the frame made in NH.
