    Default MR556A1 barrel has no markings?

    I had HK Columbus replace my MR556A1 barrel about a year ago due to an issue I was having. I happened to remove my handguards and noticed the new barrel has zero markings on it. Has anybody else ever checked for markings on the barrels of recent MR556's ? My old barrel did have some HK markings on it, so I was wondering if HK made some changes in the last year or so.

    I wouldn't be surprised since another thread reported that many of the markings on a MR556 upper also disappeared. Do you at least have a date code on the upper or barrel?

    My upper has a date code, as it is the my original upper. HK only replaced the barrel.

    I just purchased an MR762 barrel from HK's online store and too had no markings.

    I wish they would mark their barrels so you can be sure it is a legit HK part. In my case I know its legit as it was sent directly to HK for replacement

    MR556 barrels (and I assume MR762 as well) are sent into the US unfinished, and finished here by a 3rd party. (Daniel's Defense, I believe)

    The BI upper that I purchased from HK's web shop is marked. It's possible replacement parts are not marked.
