Need to get @tbostic to modify his G36 300blk to work on a 416/mr556 platform.
I wonder if this shortened gas system might be adapted for a 10.4” .300 BLK...
I know conversions are supposedly coming and Jayson can do longer barrels, but I’d love to have a 300 version of my 10” gun, and I’ve got a Surefire 762-MINI in the pipe already...
A little carbine with the same form factor suppressed as my 10” gun but shooting 300 subs could be fun...

I second that! I pretty much decide a few months ago to move away from the G36 platform and focus on the 416 instead.
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."

Well, I took the plunge since I missed out on the prior wave of 416C goodies getting imported. Even if I had been able eventually to build a legit 416C, it would have suffered from whatever reliability issues caused it to get shelved by HK anyway, to say nothing of the inferior ballistics simply based on such a short barrel length. Nevertheless, the HKParts kit does at least look nice. I was also surprised by how much of a difference 2 or so inches made in terms of mobility for a PDW. It handles much like a pistol, albeit a very large one, much more so than the same set up with a 10.4 inch barrel.
I went with a Maxim PDW stock. I have an HKParts one, and while it functions just fine as a stock, it does not have the same functionality as the original HK stock it terms of deployment, and it is a bit cumbersome to extract and retract. The Maxim is more solid and also deploys much more easily. I might put the HKParts stock on just for the kick of it at some point, but for now here is what the upper kit looks like installed.

That looks awesome! Congrats and thanks for posting the pics and info. Let us now how shooting goes as I hope it’s not a safe queen?

@nsheers any performance related updates on this. I noticed HKParts has the barreled upper kits back in stock. For whatever reason, I am still enamored by the 416C concept.
