    Domestic cloned HK416 upper?

    So what's the story here? Are they assembling 416 uppers in the USA from HK parts, and adding a domestic SS nitride treated barrel?

    Someone help me out here. I need to understand because this is confusing as hell.

    They are apparently here in UT. I might have to pop into their shop and see what the deal is first hand.

    Here is what my Google told me...

    No HK parts.

    Coharie Arms will be selling a complete rifle, and they will be using the TD uppers. Lewis Aerospace will be making the lowers (a good thing).

    The gas block will be cast.

    More info and pics here...

    Thanks for the link. They claim compatibility with HK416 parts and their uppers will drop onto any lower, which is the lame aspect of the MR556 IMHO

    Seems like the interesting project. If it really can use HK parts, that's a hefty advantage over other piston makers.

    Found these vids on youtube. Looks good

    Todd seems to have it out for RCM and POF. Not sure what kind of person he is, but he likes to mention others in a negative way in just about every post he makes.

    Who is RCM? Doesn't ring a bell

    And I see Baily is part of Special Weapons, Bobcat etc etc. That's a buzzkill...

    I gather no one has seen this thing in the flesh then?

    Edit: Just spoke to them and they seem like a nice group of guys. Really courteous, and willing to answer questions; I kept them on the phone for 25 minutes.

    They invited me to their next testing session so I can see the product first hand.

    They are based in SLC, Utah.

    Before you get all warm and fuzzy with these guys, do a search on Todd Bailey......the most hated and untrustworthy man in the gun industry.
