What You Didn't Know About the HK416 & How To Build Your Own
The Heckler & Koch HK416™ is an updated, piston-action derivative of the M4 carbine. It's been issued to U.S. Special Forces troops - and yes, it's the rifle used by the Navy Seals who ended the career of Osama bin Laden. Now, you can assemble your own with an HK416™ parts kit from Brownells. Broken down from complete German rifles that saw little-to-no use, these kits lack only the lower receiver, barrel, and bolt. The good news is Brownells offers those parts separately, so you can get ALL the components you need to build a complete, semi-auto HK416™ rifle. In this video, Paul Levy explains the differences between the HK416™ and the M4, and then he shows you how assemble an HK416™ kit.
WARNING: Never attempt to disassemble or reassemble a firearm unless you are absolutely certain that it is empty and unloaded. Visually inspect the chamber, the magazine and firing mechanism to be absolutely certain that no ammunition remains in the firearm. Disassembly and reassembly should follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
