    I'm with you on this . I've got 2 " other " .308/762 Piston rifles. I'm not humping this thing through hedge rows . I'd much rather have my 10,000# Grady White as opposed to some 4,000# Bayliner. These HK MR's are right in line weight wise with any other AR pattern rifle that is worth a damn . These things flat shoot right out of the box .

    Default MR762A1 Buyer's Remorse, Regret, Disappointment

    I purchased my MR762LRP as a birthday present to myself . Was it expensive ? Yes. Was it overpriced? Some would say yes. I love it though . It has much greater accuracy potential then I am capable of. It is heavy especially in this configuration and I doubt I would ever run it with 20 round mags . It puts a smile on my face every time I shoot it . To me it is a very soft shooting .308 .

    This is the rifle that made me catch the long distance shooting bug. This rifle is happiest at distances over 200 yards. The only thing on my wish list for it would be a Geissele hand guard to match the one one my MR556. I am not one to hang a bunch of tacticool stuff on my rifle so picatinny rails just add unneeded weight and bulk.

    If weight is a concern, then the 416 Geiselle rail weighs as much as the factory quad rail and the CSASS handguard is no different.

    To be honest I never weighed the OEM handguard on my MR556 to compare it to the Geissele. I really love the slimmer profile which makes it fit my hand better which it turns make it feel better balanced . I guess it’s just perception,but I would still swap out the hand guard immediately if they were ever available.

    Makes sense, just thought I should point it out. A lot of guys see no rails and thing "lighter" but that's not the case at all with the Geiselle and Rem handguards.

    Interesting, but good to know.

    I guess perceptions matter.

    I have the euro variety, a 20" MR308A3, and I love it.
    But god it's heavy. Loaded and with iron sights it's noticeably heavier than my dad's AG3 service rifle (Norwegian version of the G3). Add a scope and a bipod, you'd best start thinking about working out too.

    It's definitely not made for running around with, but it's smooth, reliable, shoots like a laser beam, really easy to maintain and it gives me a silly grin every time I fire it.

    Mission accomplished.

    Do wish HK would get their delivery situation sorted though, so I'd get my slim rail soon.
