defense industry fag with a M16 lower here, what the fuck is wrong with HK? all I want is their 416 14.5" upper but they don't sell it to regular niggers. all they sell is the MR556A1 upper which has a fuckheavy 16.5" barrel blank for a barrel plus a supergay semi-only BCG.
investment grade firearms (IGF) will fix all the above problems with the MR556A1 for $720 (including nitriding) plus shipping but that's after paying $2k already for just the upper. meanwhile, patriot ordinance factory (POF) does a 14.5" upper for $1500 that has nothing that needs fixing.
what do /k/? pic related is what i'll be doing when the pmag d60 gets released.
But the 416 sucks.
>gassy and heavy recoil
Why the fuck do you want a piston AR to being with? Just get a DI.
Judging by the fact that you're asking about a full retard capable M416 clone upper.
You either have a Class III FFL, or have the appropriate documents for NFA/DD stuff.
My knowledge on the matter, however limited, extends a fair distance.
There is a manufacturer that puts out a Burst/Semi/Full Retard SBR clone of the 416.
It was featured in that new movie John Wick from tail end of last year.
I cannot for the life of me remember the manufacturer's label,
but some other anon, I'm sure, will provide this information as it was discussed.
You did specify that you wanted the carbine length,
and not 10" SBR barrel, and that is where I cannot help.
A little googling provides the following info.
Coharie Arms 415.
M416 clone w/ 14.5" M4 profile (203 cut) barrel.
Don't know if you can get their upper though.
doesn't take away from any of their legitimate points.
>shorter gas tube means higher gas port pressure to make up for lack of dwell time
>higher port pressure means more FTE and increased bolt velocity
keep in mind this upper will be used on a M16 lower so gas pressure and cyclic rate actually matter.
not the level of quality i'm looking for. the involvement of some shady brands (Hesse aka Vulcan) with those uppers confirms they are good just for looks.
Are you more pensive over the quality of BCG / other QC?
Can always get the thing for the rail only, and then throw an A3 style Ni-Bor BCG in it.
(Do they do Ni-Bor BCG's for Piston?)
However, I don't know if that will cooperate with your third pin lower and function properly...
Wish I could offer you more help, but Piston Op outside slavshit is just not my forte.
here's an example of what can expect from Vulcan:
I've no idea what that gentleman meant then.
Get a PWS 14.5in upper that doesn't suck like the POF and comes with a FA bolt carrier, and isn't made out of forged unobtainium that's quenched in unicorn semen like the HK 416 stuff.
PWS is the shit. have the MK107 7.62x39 upper, works great no problems whatsoever. looking at POF for variety. they test with Wolf steel case ammo which is affordable so they aren't that clueless. also looking at their 10.5" upper.
Vulcan QC is obviously sub-par.
So, I suppose you're not just BS'n in that regard.
That's some fucked up shit in that liveleaks vid.
Interesting. If POF offers the upper you want with the F/A BCG, then by all means.
Not gonna try and tell you how you should spend your money.
