SHOT Show 2019: HK416 .22 LR

Heckler & Koch, maker of the HK 416 used by U.S. Special Forces, is back in the .22 Long Rifle gun business with the new 416 22. The Oberndorf, Germany, gunmaker has partnered with Umarex, another German company, to offer a semi-automatic firearm that has the lines, look and feel of the center-fire carbine. But instead of making the 416 under license, H&K asked Umarex to upgrade the design with some features that make this Gen2 even better than the first version. The handguard is M-lok, again like the center-fire, and the barrel is threaded to take common suppressors. Unchanged is the excellent magazine made by Umarex, as it is very easy to load and works extremely well. There are both rifle and pistol versions, and you can see them on the range with American Rifleman’s Mark Keefe. For more, visit HK-USA.com.
