HK416 carbine and upper receivers available to American police

back to newsroom

Columbus, Georgia — The HK416 carbine (5.56 mm) was developed by Heckler & Koch for US special operations forces as a major product improvement of M4/M16-type carbines and rifles and is now available for sale to American law enforcement agencies.

Using the proprietary gas piston system found on the HK G36, the HK416 avoids introducing propellant gases and carbon fouling back into the weapon’s interior, making it the most reliable of any M4/M16 type weapon. The HK416 has been combat-proven in Iraq and Afghanistan and has also gained the attention of military, law enforcement, and security users outside of the US. In April 2007, the HK416 was selected as the new Norwegian Army rifle.

An innovative free-floating 4-quadrant rail system designed by HK allows all current accessories, sights, lights, and aimers used on M4/M16/AR15-type weapons to be fitted to the HK416. The HK rail system and can be installed and removed without tools.

Premium steel is used to manufacture the HK416 barrel and ensures superior performance for greater than 20,000 rounds with minimal degradation of accuracy and muzzle velocity. Factoring in total life cycle costs, agency acquisition of HK416s is more cost-effective that other available systems. HK416 variants are available with 10.4, 14.5, 16.5, and 20 inch barrels.

The HK416 is available as a complete weapon or as a “drop-in” HK416 upper receiver module for use on the lower receivers of existing M4/M16 type weapons. For more information contact HK Law Enforcement Sales at 706-568-1906.
