    Those are both really nice, UW. That B5 stock must be extra crunchy vs the creamy peanut butter of the other stuff. I think this came up before, but I should I presume you are lefty based on the light set-up?

    What's your view on shooting the HK? I've heard less than flattery comments about them from a few sources. Any comparison you can draw against other piston offerings, like LMT? I love HK roller locks, but I just haven't been able to get excited about their ARs at those prices. Not saying I wouldn't love to have one. Maybe I should pick up the Brownells lower before July 1, but I just don't see myself dropping and $3+K on the parts kit etc when I still have a MWS to build.

    The calculus for the Brownell's kit falls apart for me because there's no HK barrel. That really is the heart of the system. I'd really like to shoot a 14.5 or 16" version of a 416, though, just to compare it to the 10.4".

    I have just shy of 1,800 rounds through mine and it's unnecessary for the world I live in. But it's still fun to shoot. A bit more recoil impulse than a 10.3" DI gun, and a little gassier, assuming the DI gun is ported correctly. The HK is exceptionally accurate. I work with a guy who was a Marine infantryman and he eventually carried the M27 with an ACOG on top in AFG. He said he really liked the rifle, it was very accurate, and was a step up from the SAW.

    Correct, I'm a lefty. If I were you and had a remote interest in a future 416, I'd pick up a Brownells Lower, especially with the climate in this state. Plus they're $299 now instead of $399, well worth it IMHO. Try to catch it on a 10% off or $30 off $300 deal and you have a winner.

    gator pretty much nailed it. The math doesn't work out with the Brownells kit, especially without a barrel and the bolt. You're really just left with some lower parts, a crappy quad rail and some other bits. At those prices, you can wait for a PD trade in at Clydes Armory or other places. The PD trade in market is drying up from what I understand as departments didn't adopt 416 in masses, and are moving away from them because of expense.

    The recoil impluse is sharper and noticeably more gas. If you get a newer one with a vented gas block, it may help with those issues. If you want a piston gun, I'd just get a SCAR, which IMHO is the best suppressor host on the market, or a PWS. The 416 however is iconic, and I just had to have one. It's a tack driver and everyone who's shot mine always walks away with a smile. I ended up with 2 only because I got consecutive serial #'s on the uppers, so I figured my 2 year old needed one too.

    I got lucky on this one. Used a pre-existing SBR to put the stock on, then used a 7.5" Ballistic Advantage barrel on the HERA Arms 7" MLOK rail, with the SF can it fit like a glove.

    Looks like a P90 mated with a Tavor and had a baby

    I'm not going to lie Dave... did it for the gram.

    The stock is a tad long for my tastes, but the foregrip is surprisingly comfortable for me. It's definitely "different" looking.
