    Default Current List of HK416/417 Mil/LE End-Users

    Wikipedia has this on their HK416 page. Does it sound fairly accurate?

    "HK416/417 Users:

    -Indonesia - Indonesian Marine Corps Counter Terrorist Unit, Detasemen Jala Mengkara (Denjaka).

    -Netherlands - The Netherlands Army special forces unit Korps Commandotroepen selected the HK416 over other tested assault rifles to replace their Diemaco C8 assault rifles. The weapon is shown on several photos from the unit's recruitment day. The HK416 is currently (2008) the standard assault rifle of the unit.

    -Norway - On April 11, 2007, the Norwegian Ministry of Defence signed a contract for an initial shipment of 8,200 rifles to serve as its new standard assault rifle, replacing the AG-3 that has been in use since 1967. It is slightly modified, with a different stock and pistol grip. The deal also included the purchase of 6500 HK MP7. Delivery is expected in the first half of 2008.

    -Turkey - Turkish Army has tested 9,000 units of the HK416 manufactured domestically as the Mehmetçik 1 by MKE, and decided to adopt it as a replacement for the currently issued G3 rifle. The Mehmetçik-1 will differ from the original HK416 in some details, like the use of a different metal alloy in its construction. This will probably to allow MKE to manufacture the rifle by the cheaper and simpler procedure of Metal Injection Molding rather than forging.

    -United Kingdom - The HK416 is used by the British Special Air Service

    -United States - It is used by the U.S. Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, various other Special Operations Command units including DEVGRU, US Capitol Police SWAT, and the US Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group. "


    I've also heard that FBI HRT also has them in service.

    And I keep thinking the SCAR is the evolution of the AR rifle not the H&K 416/417.

    I wonder if it will eventually be more accepted one day?

    I would think cost would be a big factor.

    NASA's SWAT team at the Kennedy Space Center has had 416's in service for some time now. There are photos of US Marshals using the 416 as well, I'll see if I can dig them up again.

    I know for a fact the Delaware State Police SORT Team was looking at the 416. Whether they adopted it or not, I don't know.

    Fairfax County SWAT has been using the 416.

    Trussville PD has been using 416's for patrol rifles.

    I believe some type of SF unit from Malaysia has been using both the 416 and MP7 as of recently.

    Edit to add:

    Here's the Malaysian unit, VAT69.

    It's easier to aim with sights deployed :D

    BTW Polish army elite special forces unit "GROM" (Operation and Manuevre Responce Group - acronym translates to "Thunder") for some 80% of probability will adopt 416 to replace KAC and Bushmaster. Naval special forces unit "Formoza" adopted G36 just before 416 was made avaiable so they will probably stick with that. Bouth units have long story of operating under US SCOCOM command since first day of Iraq and A-stan operations.

    Wikipedia now states the GSG9 and KSK have both adopted the HK416. There was no source listed and I don't know how credible this information is. Can anyone confirm?

    Looks like we can add Poland's GROM to the list.

    These are from an open house or demonstration they did recently.
