    Default New HK416 quick detach handguard

    Looks like HK will supply the Hessen state police with a HK416 variant with what looks like a new lightened quick detach handguard.
    Decent pics on the S&T blog (I am not associated in any way):

    Meh...not necessary. Seems like a good snag hazard for an area that doesn't need much attention anyways and is already easily accessed with repeatable return if required.

    The need to get with the program and ditch the 6 o'clock rail as well; add some length to it. MLok would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Default New HK416 quick detach handguard

    It could be useful if you are changing load outs on the same rifle and want to do that quickly, such as going from a slick daytime setup to a forward mounted night optic or a DMR bipod mounted setup with a longer rail. Maybe even a rail- mounted grenade launcher version.

    I like it and I want it ... except with MLOK, of course.

    When Haenel (ex HKjs factory, now part of Tawazun / Caracal) was making HK416 clone one of small changes was to QD handguard (turn lever 180 degrees and you can slide handguard off). Probably this feature was put in requirements for tender, so HK added it, to steal sales from competitor.

    QD handrail with an optic mount that straddles onto it. Fantastic!

    Question is.. do they sell it ? I would not mind adding one as the current screw method is a bit annoying..

    Assuming you manage to, I'd gladly sign up for one! (for the 11'' MR, blk if possible?) --> let me know by PM

    Looking forward
