HK417 Upper Reciever Rod/Fixture for Barrel installation
Hello all, and sorry if this has been asked, and answered, but I am coming up blank going through the threads.
I am looking to install a Brownells Barrel on the HK417 kit I purchased from them late last year. I have been looking at vice blocks, vice rods, and really like the "The Device manufacturing" AR-15 fixture K1MOD0DEVIC they carry - looks to be about the most robust one out there.
regards, I felt this may be a challenge - I have another request into Brownells for a suggestion. I am trying to avoid the picatinny rail style, as it just does not seem to be an ideal method for this.
What’s the deal with the parts kit, Any advantages or disadvantages?
For me, I have been working on putting as close to original HK416 & HK417 together for a bit over a year now, and finding the parts individually at the Brownells price would be a chore to say the least. I still keep an eye out for original barrels, and bolts. But when I run across them, they are spendy, so the search continues for those items. But for now, the Brownells barrels, and when they produce them, lowers, and bolts for the HK417 will do....
