Looks like 416's to me. You can faintly see the white/red pictogram markings on the receivers as well as the factory folding front site. Handguards look like HK type as well.

Nice! That one way back must've been an HK416. Love the look of them.
By the looks of things we do now have positive confirmation ..

Thanks, Chef.

I like the new front page pic:



Just one more for reference sake!

I don't blame them, LOL :)
I disagree with you BMS. The HK G36K is a great weapon. HK put over 25,000 rounds through it in the Yuma, AZ desert without a single hicup and no cleaning.

Too bad the U.S. LE mind-set is for AR-based weapon design.

Well in actuality I would say that both platforms are very solid ones. But, I was not really saying that the G-36 is a bad platform, however, I think the "AR" platform is a bit more universal and far more widely accepted. I agree with your statement that the US mind-set is for AR-type systems, but I think that is changing a little at a time. If I had the option to have either a G-36 or a 416 I would probably go with the G-36 simply because it's something new and different. But who knows, as I cannot have either!! :(

Best,
Brian :)
