    It almost looks better unsuppressed. The more you post this, the more I like it

    Gracias. I agree, which is why I've started shooting it more that way. It gets a little unwieldy with the bipod and can, but I can pop off the bipod easy enough and it's not bad. Personally I don't see a 14.5 very often anywhere but on "SEAL Team," so it's fun to be able to play with one.

    I'm finding this rifle harder to shoot well when compared to a similar DI gun when shooting for accuracy. Here's a ten round group. The flier at 12 o'clock is all me (trigger press and I watched it happen), the other 2 or 3 seemed to show up when I would lose concentration on form just a little bit.



    Bottom line, at least for me, is it seems like a more technical rifle to shoot. Or maybe I've just lost my touch. Ammo is IMI "MK262" 77gr. I may try some Black hills next month, just to see how it does.

    I also sold the MK6 to pay for the new optic. I'd argue it's an upgrade.

    Still all kill shots Gatordev, maybe just an off day at the range?

    I just don't think the piston makes for a smooth shooter.

    Looking forward to some more follow up posts on accuracy though.

    I should have said that the gun was zeroed with IMI M193, so POIs being left was due to different ammo. But yes, even with the flier, all within 4". This time of year the sun gets to be a pain in the ass (right in the eyes above the objective), but I don't think I can blame that here.

    Agreed.

    Have you heard that they've stopped importing 416's all together? Check on HKPRO and GunBroker, there are hardly any 416 listings. Lots of MR556 stuff, but I'm guessing the 416's have dried up.

    There's one regular on there ("Brad...something") that seems to think the market isn't done yet and there's some people sitting on product. It also sounds like there's one or two individuals that still have access to PD guns that are trickling the uppers out every month or two.

    I noticed the one guy trying to sell his AF upper for $4K finally sold it (I think), but that sat there for a long time. Will be interesting to see what happens to the market once Marvin's barrels make it out into the wild.

    I agree it'll be interesting when Marvin's barrels drop. I've seen more than a few uppers/handguards for sale posts. I know this will drive the HK purists up the wall, but for a lot of people, it'll be like a "clone" and be good enough for their BRN4 lower, and may drive prices down.

    Apparently less than 90 of these actually made it to the states. Not

    Did you end up grabbing one? That thread on HK Pro was one of the threads I was referencing. Not sure I believe everything that guy is putting out. I didn't realize the AU ones were tan...if that's one of them.

    If you have some financial setbacks, you can sell your G-rail for a kajillion dollars and it would be considered a steal.
