Am I correct on this?
I have been researching for a little while and I cant find anything definitive. Are or where the 416Cs equipped standard with adjustable gas blocks or standard or vented? Or would they be outfitted based on end users request? I guess I am asking if there is a "standard", thanks for any info or direction on reading material.
Am I correct on this?
A redneck's famous last words...."Hey everybody, watch this!"
ETA: link to video I am referring to.
416C has an adjustable gas block. At least the one in the gray room does. I posted pics in this thread a while back: https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk416-hk...16c-build.html
Your recoil spring might be a bit stiff. It should lock open on the last round.
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."
I am unaware of HK continuing to make the C model past shortly after it’s introduction. That would predate the advent of the factory vented block uppers by a considerable number of years.
ETA - I am unable to reconcile that sample, but there certainly weren’t production units being sold as the model was discontinued.

The 416C’s came from the factory with adjustable gas blocks. They also have a very large 2mm vent on the front of the block because of the increased gas pressure being that the gas port is closer to the chamber. There were a handful of contracts that were filled for the 416C, so yes - production C’s were produced and delivered.
Sure about that? I don’t see an adjustable gas block.
ETA - not sure I was precise enough in what I said. I didn’t say no one bought any. I said it wasn’t an offered model for very long before it was discontinued. I. E. A B date code would be a considerable amount of time after they no longer offered the model.

You guys are getting wrapped up around the gas block. The most unique part of the weapon is the bolt carrier and buffer system, which is completely unique. And you certainly will not find any HK parts or HK parts kits to clone one.
