Heckler and Koch MR556 Competition AR15 Rifle
|A direct descendent of the HK416, the MR556 is a semi-automatic rifle developed by Heckler & Koch as a premium level commercial/civilian firearm with match rifle capability. Like the HK416, the MR556 is a major product improvement over conventional AR-type carbines and rifles. The Heckler & Koch MR556 uses the HK proprietary gas piston operating system, employing a piston and a solid operating pusher rod in place of the gas tube normally found in AR15/M16/M4-style firearms. This method of operation virtually eliminates malfunctions that are common to direct impingement gas systems since hot carbon fouling and waste gases do not enter the receiver area. This is the same key feature critical to the success of the HK416 rifles used by leading military and law enforcement customers. The MR556 Competition model features input from competitive shooters and is designed for enhanced performance in a competitive or duty environment. Features a 14" Modular keymod rail system, lightweight Magpul CTR stock, muzzle brake, oversized, extended magazine release, extended charging handle, two stage trigger, and cold hammer forged 16.5" barrel.
