Did anyone ever figure out what parts of the German MR556s were US made for 922r? Just curious. I know German barrel blanks were finished by DD in the states.
I believe the uppers and lowers are US made (barrel blanks finished here too). The early 416’s had many US made parts. The lower parts kits were J&T/DoubleStar and they had grips from tango down. I am not sure how 922 might impact the MR series as US made weapons. If you want to get Uber technical, 922 says "identical to" a firearm banned from importation. The fact the barrel doesn’t have chrome would mean they are not identical.

They earned their position in a elite military unit that purchases them the best equipment possible to complete their missions. So yes, they do earn it. I'm not saying that the average joe shouldn't have that same rifle. I'm just saying don't complain about not being able to buy that HK416a5, because you're not hunting terrorist!!
And apparently HK doesn't believe there's a big enough market or they would be selling it already...
