    Default 2, 416 14.5” uppers for sale - scam???

    I can’t tell what these are. The barrels just don’t look right, maybe Brownells or chopped and reprofiled 556?

    And his claim to Feb 2017 manufacture date sure doesn’t add up for me on AG uppers and metal dust covers.

    Am I missing something, wouldn’t be the first time?

    What say the HK 416 Rabble???

    Well...those aren't 416 barrels. Those are 16" and not 14.5".

    I'm 99% certain that HK has never made a 16" 416 variant with the M203/M4 profile step cut...at least not outside the early prototype (certainly not during production least of all 2017). And given that that's an extended 11" rail, the profiled portion in front of the step cut but behind the muzzle is far too long for a factory 14.5"

    A factory 14.5 416 barrel:



    Brownells 16" Isotoner BS:

    And I'm pretty sure that if they were 2017 mfg, they would have polymer ejection port covers and not metal/milspec. Though you can see the "AG" date code on one. Maybe he doesn't understand date codes.

    Whole lotta BS

    Funny how ones has sold. I’m pretty sure they are AG date code uppers from HB with Brownells barrels. I have an AG upper from HB. He has AF and AG for sale. How much someone wanna bet the seller bought it?

    The rifle on top shows what the 14.5" barrel looks like with the 11" extended quad rail.

    These are clearly Brownells barrels.

    I just emailed the scammer and let him know the real date of manufacture on the upper receivers as AG does not equal 2017.

    Maybe he will correct that as well. I feel sorry for the poor bastard who purchased the first one if it wasn’t a straw purchaser.

    "Selling a pair of HK416 uppers. Uppers have never been fired. Manufactured FEB 2017 at the Heckler & Koch factory in Oberndorf, Germany. These are not HK MR556’s. Offering both uppers for $10,800 or will sell individually for $5,500 each. Great opportunity to own a pair of highly prized 5.56mm uppers." From your original GB ad, are we missing something ?
