The latest salvos in the current 416 war were issued today. Eagle Eye published pics of their upper, mated with an RS 416 RIS and a Geissele 416 SMR.
SGT went with some pics of their receivers in the final stages of the curing process, showing off the upper’s anodizing, along with the array of RS spec accessories they can provide.
Interestingly, SGT has chosen to replicate the newer 416 barrel which HK has been producing since 2007. It’s still steel, but the profile makes it lighter.
Now chaps, somebody needs to do a high quality 416 SMR, because the RS is like hen’s teeth.
