With the multitude of companies making lowers these days, I just wanted some input from the members as to what choice of lower would be a good one for the 416. Steel or aluminum? other choices? I also assume that you guys are using the standard m16/m4 trigger parts for use with your RDIAS - if so please let me know that as well and how it works with your 416.

thoughts, comments and pics would all be helpful.

I do not own a HK 416 upper but do own a RDIAS. I use a billet POF 416 lower wich has full auto markings and has a low shelf wich makes it RDIAS ready. I can not see any other lower that would be closer to a real HK 416 lower.

I use a Bushmaster M16 control parts and they work fine.

Yeah for $500.00 dollars per lower receiver... Screw that.
Anybody buying an HK416 Upper should not even blink at the price of a Magpul Lower after what they paid for the upper. Anyways, Magpul said it'd be lower than $500, maybe a high $200.

Thats a beautiful lower :O

I would second the 416 price would justify that lower. Plus you would have the flared magazine well... looks like Magpul knew what to do, to make an irrisistable 416 lower ;)

there were a couple of people who posted pic's of lowers that looked to be close copies/clones of the 416 lowers. I can't recall who posted the pic's, but I recall they had them made....

good luck.

i bought 2 socom manufacturing lowers. they were consecutive #ed. they dont have the pic/gram but have the flared and most importantly for me they have a horizontal magwell. painted them up as close to an HK as i could. they are great lowers and are getting harder to find. my 2 cent!

DPMS seems to have excellent quality control. I have not had any problems with either the aluminum or (preferred) stainless lower ... very tight tolerances on mine!

Just "build" your own and engrave it as you wish. :D






For reasons I won't go into, this lower ended up being FUBAR because of engraving flaws on the pictos and HK logo. I won't make the same mistake again though.
