    Again, they're NOT nitrided. You should do your part in stopping this rumor based on nothing more than deductive reasoning and/or wishful thinking.

    Is it safe to assume you did not read the following from the link you provided?

    What if HK had orders for the existing rifle? Should they throw those orders away or build them first?

    No matter what they do some folks will think they should do something else.

    If you read page 3 post #21 he says he's mistaken as mr223 barrels are NOT nitride. He retracts his statement. The barrels aren't nitride coated.

    @tlrgsxr what 100% proof do you have directly from HK that permits you to assume it isn't nitrided?

    I don't comment by the way of deductive reasoning, I do however understand that HK makes the blanks in Germany from the same ol' steel they make all their barrels from. That said, logic would suggest they would nitride the barrel blanks before shipping. All things considered I haven't seen ANYONE quote an actual HK technician with the yes/no on the nitride question, probably because it's done in Oberndorf and they don't say anything one way or the other. While not a rifle, all current pistol barrels (except the Mark 23) are nitrided without chrome lining.
    @Stevie808 what proof do you have that the barrel is NOT nitrided? Also, nitriding is not a coating, it's a treatment. As for the comments from @Montrala it seems he was unsure, he didn't say the barrels were not nitrided.

    Listen gents, if someone from HK can 100% confirm that a nitriding treatment was/wasn't done to the bore I think we can put the topic to rest but there are plenty of folks using logic, suspicion, and lack of details from HK to imply truth one way or the other. IF someone with actual details from HK
    can clarify this, that will be best for this debate. Again, what matters is the question of nitride treatment to the bore.

    I think people who constantly wish for additional features, because another manufacturer provides it, should go with the other manufacturer's products and be done with it. In the meantime, my "regular, old" MR556A1 leaves nothing to be desired for me. Other than providing an Trijicon TA31 BAC ACOG, and OEM HK flip-up metal sights, I worry not about a lack of chrome lining or having an adjustable gas block, just because they can be had. I can clean and lube my rifle just fine, my piston works flawlessly, and I don't bury it in wet mud for the sake of youtube. These are years old discussions, meanwhile I can take out a gnat's eye at 100 yards- to the point that it gets boring. On NRA 100 yard targets, I don't shoot the target, I shoot the SKU at the bottom right of the paper, which at that point the ammunition becomes a variable in consistency more so than the rifle. If you want a perfectly dressed rifle for pinpoint accuracy, and demand every possible trinket for that purpose, get an Anschutz- you can buy stuff for it and the strange clothing and shoes that go with it all day long. If you really want a 416, earn it by joining the military.

    I agree with you that the MR556 is a great rifle and that's why I have two of them. I have many other ARs from other manufacturers as well, but that doesn't stop me from wanting an updated MR556. HK has given the Europeans most of the updated features so I want them too.

    Mine are overgassed when suppressed so an adjustable gas block would be a welcome improvement.

    You'll never have a fully-updated anything.
