H&K Picture Thread

Definitely didn't feel any different than shiny ABS to me. I used to have one of the old GWS xm8 kits from years back and it just reminded me of it, hence why I never took the plunge for the SRC one.

 

Could very well just be how its constructed but it didn't give me the same impression of rigidity that G36's and tavor's did.

 

Not trying to disprove anymore, simply sharing my own experiences. 

 

You probably had a version 1 or 2 xm8. I have V3 and a GWS kit. the difference is immense.

I just bought an Umarex HK417 and now Im looking for a rear sling attachment plate. Since the back of the body is different from that of M4/416/etc. i assume one of those would look funnt. Any suggestions?

 

Also, is there a barrel extension that I can screw on the shorter barrel I have, like many M4s come with now? I want it to llok like this (I think this belongs to a member here), but be able to go back to short without disassembling the whole thing.

Crusader also sell a HK417 Rear sling plate. There is also a barrel extension from Crusader too I think. Though any barrel extension will work. I used a spare length from an FCC PTW multi length barrel on mine!

VFC sell a rear sling plate for the 417 which is wider because of the fatter stock tube. A VFC 416 barrel extension might fit onto the 417 to give the longer look.

Thanks for the info!

 

Isnt a 416 (5.56 mm) thinner, though? Doesnt it look weird?

 

I just found the Crusader barrel extension. According to EHA, it has an outer diameter of 15mm, while my 417 barrel has a diameter of 18mm.

Thats because thats a barrel extension for an M653 not a HK417.. The FCC barrel extension was the same as the little 1inch extension thats on there originally. Which as far as I am aware is the same as the HK416. You'll be fine with any extension to be honest mate. Just take the little extension that it comes with off and then you're good to go right flush to the gas block!

I used to have a Mk23, would have been the best pistol I've ever owned if it weren't for the fact that spare parts are very difficult to come by. I sold it to find a replacement which had all the features such as upgrade ability, picatinny rail, SA & DA and plentiful resources for spares.

 

Here's to making you jealous :-P

Short barrel is too damn short.

 

disagree completely h&k series look gash with longer ones. tbh only "classic"/SOPMOD1/SFW look good with anything over 10.5, just imo

The short barrel is what it came with as standard, I quite like it as is but if they bundled it with a longer barrel like they did with the Scar I'd probably put it on.

 

Aznriptide it looks ok to me =p
