I’m 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’re awesome, that’s why. ;)

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.

I’m not hung up on the brand I just want a rifle that’s going to work in pretty much every environment and situation, even though I hope to God I never need it.

Read the article link I posted above.

Which is why the US MILITARY puts out RFP's asking for firearms manufacturers who are willing to put their firearm up for testing - they ALWAYS have to meet certain specifications. They have to compete against all comers. And even then, some times the best weapon is not chosen.

WHY? PRICE POINT. THAT'S ALL.

So, you have to make the best firearm, you have to go head to head in testing against all the other firearm manufacturers willing to compete for the contract.

And even if you win the quality test and adhere to all the specifications, and are ACTUALLY THE BEST FIREARM PRESENTED TO THE US MILITARY, yet you could still lose contract. Because someone else offers up something 'close' but cheaper.

ME? I always put quality first, price second. But I'm weird like that.

I agree with what you state, but realize the 416 was designed as an upper to Delta specs without bid. It was birthed essentially as an adjunct for a special project.
