    Default MR223 F-C (French limited edition)

    Came across this article on TFB (Civilian versions of the HK416F - MR223 F-S and MR223 F-C destined for France only - The Firearm BlogThe Firearm Blog)

    Seems that HK is testing new marketing strategies with *limited* edition versions. It appears a special MR223 will hit the market in 14.5" and 11", with potentially the same furniture as the military 416F.

    The picture showcases some sort of photo-shopped mess, with likely just an amendment in markings:
    - Sear pin is visible as in the normal military F Version
    - Barrel seems not to be MR-BULL-style, rather normal Gov't profile as in previous HK416F renderings
    - Gasblock not clearly A3 spec

    I enquired to local (Swiss) HK dealers to get a sample, immediate feedback was that the gun is indeed a French exclusive. Let's see if we still manage to grab a couple of samples.

    I for once would like to own one in 11" for my SBR collection,. Picture that instagram post with a Famas, 416F-style 11" & a glass of bordeaux !

    Thanks, pretty cool, but too bad it has the "sear pin". Cheers

    As per The Firearm Blog, I could only find one gun shop in France that mentions these and the pre-order is full. So it is only love for a handful of French.
    If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
    "I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

    Has HK done a RAL8000 special edition over seas?
    Here in the USA, that would be a way for them to sell an additional model to many previous owners.

    Why does HK hate us!

    It does use the original Gas Block of the Military French version, but the french army choosed to get a non adjustable gaz block. Delivery are planned for end of November. Something like 30 unit of each size (11" and 14.5") is planned.

    My concern is more about the barrel profile. Will it be a military one (lighter but thinner) or the usual MR one (huge and heavy) ?
