    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.

    14.5” A5 - https://www.heckler-koch.com/en/prod.../overview.html

    16.5” A5 - https://www.heckler-koch.com/en/prod.../overview.html

    I’m pretty sure that only the MR556 and the MR223A3 are the only ones that have the heavy older 10.4” barrel profiles. Read somewhere that they made the civilian rifles that way due to target accuracy or something to that effect.

    Agreed. You're right on the barrel length.

    Has HK even imported any A5's? Last I knew they would only offer the vented gas block uppers to PD's.

    Yes, they have. The Capitol Police have some, and there’s some other agencies that have received orders already.

    A couple pics of the Capitol Police’s setup

    The 11” HK416A5 barrel is supposedly a lighter profile than the 10.4” barrels. Picture from @Marine0303

    I guess it was a bad batch of crack I’ve been smoking, but I be wrong!

    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?

    Isn't your answer in the photo you just commented on? :)

    Not when it comes to HK and the 416 family tree. That pic is from 2014. They’ve switched other things in that period of time, the hand guard for instance.

    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. ;-)

    I’m hoping that the barrel profile is a little thicker than that one. I think more of a SOCOM barrel diameter would be perfect and still lighter than the original.
