There aren’t many of these floating about…

“I was thinking about getting an FCC AOR1 HK416 PTW, especially after reading all the DEVGRU books and watching the movies. I searched for some time, until I could get my hands on one of these rare blasters. Apparently there were only 14 pieces made by FCC.”

“Inspired by the No Easy Day 416, I started to add accessories and tried to paint them accordingly, to get closer to the original. This project is still progressing.

I changed the big deans connectors to small deans connectors, to make the lipo fit better in the stock tube. Maybe I will send the lower to Stu / PPTW or SGT for moisture proofing and motor mods.”

“I removed the FCC Tango Down style grip; I like the Magpul MIAD and it fits my hand much better. The TD grip felt so uncomfortable to me, although its paint job is so nice. I decided to use the Elcan Specter DR instead an Eotech XPS.”

“I really like the paint job, and it is very close to the original in my eyes. It is a Duracote paint job with 4 different layers & colours. The AOR1 pixels were made with stencils, sprayed airbrush-fine, with a lot of fine detail. The camo covers everything. The HK markings are all there, right under the paint. They shine slightly through the colour. The colours are a bit different to the RS AOR1 tone; I would say a bit brighter and more “sand “, while some tones in the RS AOR1 looks a bit more “pinky / tan” to me, but it depends on the light. It will definitely get darker during use. Also the pixels are a bit bigger than in RS pics. It isn’t easy to paint accessories for it, because it’s hard to find the exact matching tones that FCC used. I’m still looking for matching colours, although Krylon Sand Dune closely matches the base.”
