Trawling through  a few RS pics, I was amazed at just how many there are of the HK416 SMR out there in the wild.

It’s been speculated that the SMR was designed for CAG; but that hasn’t stopped it spreading to the LE sector as more recent pics show.

Here’s one in the posession of the LAPD:

I was really chuffed to get my HK416 SMR, way back in the summer of 2014. They were like hen’s teeth at the time.

Ironically though, I’ve not yet used the rail in anger. I was recovering from an injury when I bought mine and soon after that I lost my airsoft mojo. Having said that, I’d been using the MK2 M4 version for some time and absolutely loved it.
