    Everything you love about the AR, and more (several pounds more it sounds like)

    I am interested in seeing the .308 model however.

    my SIG550 with ~21inch barrel and empty magazine weights in at about 9lb.. and everybody tells me how heavy that thing is.
    heck, the 551LB with 18.5inch barrel weights less then that thing...

    Tell me again why we'd buy a gas piston AR with a built in $500 plus extra gift to HK?

    Hee hee, I was just 'splainin to someone the other day why the new Henry .30-30 rifle costs $300 more than a Marlin 336 - near as I can tell, it's $100 per pound of extra weight.

    piston driven ar's are always heavier than their DI counterparts.

    Cool to see they're still coming out, but I don't even want to think about the MSRP. For the price it will probably be, you'd be better off just picking up a barrett.

    Is it true that the bolt does not get dirty or hot after firing? that right there is a bonus. plus i heard it is a reliable as an AK with the AR (for lack of a better word) Flavor that we love.

    with 20inch barrel, full size handguard and covered in Rails.. and it is still lighter then a 16.5inch barrel version of the HK416?
    either HK is puting weights in there.. or the website is wrong on that one.

    the first 1000 or so of those rifles will probably go for even more.

    HK, because in a world of compromise, some stingy people think a rifle should cost less than a car.

    To the original poster:

    We are NOT "haters" of HK weapons, we hate HK's corporate attitude towards civillian ownership of "super evil" guns. HK is perfectly willing to make millions off us with their politically SAFE handgun line, but they refuse to sell a semi auto version of the MP5, or any of their "evil" rifles (the sl8 doesn't count because it is totally bastardized to get it into the country).

    We hate this kind of crap from HK:
    Just couldn't make the entire thing in the USA huh. Way to go HK. Way to give the customer what he wants HK. If that upper fit on AR lowers you would sell them by the millions, but you don't want that now do you HK because we're talking about civilians aren't we.

    Way to be ahead of the curve HK. Those guns will arrive just as the manufacturers of ARs/Sig556/etc finally catch up to demand. There will be little market demand, or market money left for your "MR556" (poetic justice).
    Sheesh it's about time HK. Why did it take nearly two decades for you to learn what Sig figured out a long time ago with the Sig 556 rifle: i.e. that building "evil" rifles in the USA, and building them the way the customer wants them (i.e. not sporterized), is how you make gozillions of dollars. Sig beat you to the punch so long ago it's hilarious. HK = VERY late to the party
