The MR223A3 11” barrel is full profile similar in silhouette to the original 416 10.4”.
I believe the 416A5 has the same barrel as that on the MR233A3.
And I think that A5 upper shown above is the 16.5” version. Looks too long to me to be 14.5”. The 14.5” lacks the stand alone bayonet lug, which the above has.

"Just because you're paranoid doesn’t mean they're not after you!"
Has HK even imported any A5's? Last I knew they would only offer the vented gas block uppers to PD's.
A reliable source informed me that the A5s do have the 416 barrel profile.
@Montrala @baljar @Andy88 @SwissCollector , can you shed light here? Do you know if the A5 11” barrel has the full profile of the MR223A3 or is it the slim profile?

But as I said in the post you quoted, I was wrong. That post was revised a few times as I rapidly matured on the subject; bad crack will do that to you. ;-)
