Seller probably measured it himself and it includes the FH or he is stating 16" so he doesn't have to mention SBR. If FH was pinned and welded it would be right around 16". But I'd be weary of a seller who doesn't know to put that in his add or that the Brl length should be given sans FH and that original 416s are 10.4" and 14.5" uppers.16"?! I didn't know they were offered in 16?
That's why a lot of people only buy them from known trusted sellers. With that said I've bought two from unknown sellers and they were good deals and the items were in the condition promised. But always, caveat emptor!That's a lot of loot to drop without seeing it in person and no refunds
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 16"ers would be M27s not 416 (not that there is a huge difference except in availability).It havs also been fired, it is not "BRAND NEW" and not just factory testing either. Hasn't been fired much, but still used. There are a handful of 16" uppers out there, this is NOT one of them.
I did not know about the 16.5" 416 upper. I've only heard and seen adverts and in person (I own them), etc... of the other three. Thanks for that info.HK416s -- prior to the A5 -- came in 10.4, 14.5, 16.5 and 20 inch barrel lengths, so uppers of each size are bouncing around the market. As noted, though, the item pictured on Gunbroker is not a 16.5 inch upper as it has the distinctive 14.5 inch barrel with its unique tapering. Presumably, it has a pinned flash hider to get to 16 inches, but that is not mentioned in the auction description.
