    They probably won’t get any more ,wonder how much they made per kit if it was worth for them if they made money they can do second run but doubt it.

    I bet they are no longer getting any more. If you want parts now you will need to find them individually. HK416 parts are getting harder and harder to come by.

    I can help with finding real ones should anyone have that itch;-)

    If I recall correctly, Brownells got something like 2200 forgings. It seems a bit excessive to believe they sold all of them. It is possible they didn’t machine them all. Based on the prices I saw, they paid in and around $60 per forging (probably got a bulk discount to some degree considering all the other parts they bought). Machining them was probably $20-$50 a pop. There would have been shipping, paperwork man hours, overhead, etc. But, that should give a reasonable picture of what their margins were.

    There is unlikely to be more as they were the squared magwell design and HK has since moved on to the A5 profile which has an angled magwell.
