    Default 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.

    The only issue is Brownells cannot tell me if it is compatible, and I do now know if the HK417 upper is mil spec, as the K1MOD0DEVIC is for Mil Spec uppers.

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I bought a Geissele ar10 reaction rod for a 417 barrel. It didn't fit in the chamber, so you can count that one out.

    What’s the deal with the parts kit, Any advantages or disadvantages?

    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.

    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....

    Some guys brought the need for a 417 rod up to Marvin Pitts of Nefarious Arms. You might hit him up to see if it ever got legs.

    I don’t mean to get off topic, the only thing missing from this kit is, lower, bolt, and barrel. So would those 3 I could assemble a 417?

    Yeah, though the missing parts are rather significant.
