    Default Can someone explain why the MR556 and MR762 are special?

    Iím a HUGE fan of HK pistols and carry one every day. That being said, what is so special about the MR556 and MR762? All I see are a couple AR clones with piston uppers. What am I missing?

    Because they have HK written on them. That's about it.

    All the other ones don't weigh enough. Really HK fixed everything I don't like about the AR Platform. DI system and upper lower receiver slop. Plus it is very good quality.

    Basically they are both the civilian versions of the HK 416 and HK 417

    From an HK history stand point, I believe that HK came up with the direct pistol design for those two rifles. Then when they made the civilian models, that carried over.

    It's not like you are buying an off the shelf AR Clone. This is a seriously engineered and manufactured rifle. The US military bought a lot of the 416's for our soldiers.
