Hi all. I am brand new here to the forums, but definitely not new to HK. I have 6 varieties of USP pistols (2 9mm and 4 .45's) and will be getting my first AR this week with the delivery of my MR556A1.
Just wondering all your thoughts about what's the first thing I should do with it other than drooling over it of course? Met with my local range owner yesterday and he ordered me a modular rail for the boot so I can put a UTC foldable aluminum grip on it.
I also wanted to get an HK polymer magazine (all I saw was the translucent one they make), but the more I look online the more it looks like they are discontinued (via my online search for them). Any reason why? Did HK replace them with a different polymer one I can't find? I would love to know. Thanks in advance!

Thanks! I agree with you on the SBR. I was thinking that before actually pulling the “trigger” and buying it!
Welcome to the site, and congratulations on the upcoming acquisition!!!
Find a great gunsmith to do the work you want done to this rifle. Sometimes that takes some searching.
Consider an HK416A5 style bolt release.
Get a good sling that will work for you and mounted in a way that is comfortable and most useful to you.
HK all steel magazines for this rifle are of outstanding quality and reliability, consider adding a few.
Enjoy the quality of your new rifle.
Just curious...what sling would you recommend? Sorry for stupid questions. Only been a pistol guy up until now!
Pegasus757 point, I'd go steel mags all day long. Personally, I've only used the LEO mags....they hold their value/resale on the mere fact that they,
like the MP5 LEO mags simply say LEO on them. Go figure.... Slings....wide variety out there.....it's heavy so go with comfort if you're lugging it up and
down the mountain.
Nice you wont regret your purchase.
