Are you still loving your 416?

Recommended Posts

Well I have had mine for about 4 months now and it has become my favorite 22.  Now it isn't a target gun like my Marlin 982sv or even my 39a but it dam well shoots as well as my Winchester 9422.  I wish they made this gun in a 22 mag!  I haven't had any problems with it and I shoot it all the time.  I probably have shot 5,000 rounds through it with just a few jams.  Mostly due to shooting the cheapest amo I can find.

Anybody feel differently after having their 416 for a while?

You're kidding, right? Of COURSE I'm loving my 416. My Smith and Wesson MP 15/22 is crying out of loneliness and from being ignored.  :bang:

500 rounds through it without a single malfunction. And I don't know about anyone else, but it was a breeze to clean. 15 minutes, start to finish. Takedown was a snap, literally, and it cleaned quick and well, using Hoppe's 9, a rag, a bore brush, patches, and of course, Hoppe's Gun Oil.

And the oohs and aahs it gets at the range adds to the joy.

Way to go HK!.

The 416D in .223 was the basis for the new USMC IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle). They smoked the competition and the Corps is happy, happy, happy.  ;D

Well, I have had my 416 since Xmas and I have to admit its still my most favourite toy!! :thumb:

At our monthly Acton shoot one of the lads asked if it was possible to attach anything else.... `like possibly an ironing board`!!! 8)

Jealousy is a terrible thing!!


So many attachments, so few rails.
