You might get lucky. One just sold for about that amount, but the auction wasn't even up for 20 hours. You're looking at $4000-$4500 pending condition.....if/when one comes available.That is certainly a lot for the upper.
I was under the impression that they were about $3500.
Of course, this is just my humble opinion, but through a week of shooting, the 416 experienced no issues, where the Colt, SCAR-L and LWRC did. Beyond numerous daily drills, we also chose not to perform any cleaning of the weapons. Obviously, we expected the Colts to develop stoppages, but the LWRCs and SCAR-L did as well. The 416s kept running. Accuracy on all were about equal, but even in the 10.4 inch barrel, and in full auto, the 416 felt like the easiest to shoot.Marine0303 would you please elaborate on why you like the 416 better than an LWRC.
Some were the 14.7 inch barrels and a few were the PSD model with the 8.5 inch barrels. Not trying to take anything away from the LWRC, just explaining what the result was from a week of hard shooting. I doubt you are going to put your gun through that kind of work load and lack of maintenance, so the LWRC should be suitable. You are on an HK forum though, so expect members to be leaning in that direction, if not drunk on the kool aid.Thank you for the explanation, I am assuming that the LWRC was a 10.5 in barrel ?
