HK416 / HK417 Airsoft Replicas
Historical presentation of the HK416 and HK417
The HK416 is a rifle designed and manufactured by the manufacturer Heckler & Koch. Although its design is based on the AR-15 class of firearms, and in particular the US military-designed Colt M4 carbine family, the HK416 uses a patented short-stroke gas piston system derived from the ArmaLite AR-18. This is also the same system found on the G36 rifles. The HK416 is the standard assault rifle of the Norwegian Armed Forces.
The HK417, on the other hand, is the large-caliber version of the HK416. This rifle was designed for use in situations requiring great penetrating power and long range. It has also been adopted by a number of armed forces, special forces and police organizations. The design of the HK417 is identical to that of the HK416. However, the receiver and some internal parts have been enlarged to accommodate larger ammunition.
