Well I got the email today from HKparts.net about the 416 rail covers being back in stock, went online immediately but all but 1 piece were sold out 3 minutes after the email was sent out.
Good point. We're well beyond funny. The HK45c Mag Releases went almost as fast.So what's the deal with a company that cannot keep more than a few units of anything in its dealers hands? Honestly, it speaks poorly of how HK is managed. UMP Mags unavailable for the better part of a year? No wonder many PDs give up and move on. Hard to understand how they fail to get a basic grip on their supply chain.
I think just keeping it HK is the main reason. There are plenty of other decent rail options. Until I got mine, I was just using Magpul ladder rail protectors on my MR556.Nothing at all that I can see either. They say HK on them, so people want them to keep their rifle 100% HK, maybe? Seems like they're just Tangodown rails.
For me, functionality had a bit to do with it. I wanted to protect the rails and lower the chances of snags but wanted full rail coverage. Options for that were difficult due to the bolt that holds in the rail, at first causing me to hack up some TD rails to get coverage.Nothing at all that I can see either. They say HK on them, so people want them to keep their rifle 100% HK, maybe? Seems like they're just Tangodown rails.
