Here is the FULL REVIEW of the HK 416-22 carbine.
Tell you what, I’m pumped about this one already. A week ago I received this slick looking little .22 Replica of the new Hechler & Koch 416 “M4 Carbine” TYPE rifle from Umarex USA in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The rifle itself is actually manufactured by Carl Walther in Germany and imported by Umarex. Typically I haven’t been that impressed with the .22 Long Rifle replica setups (enter the M&P15-22 and the Colt M4 tactical rimfire also from Umarex) for training not because I don’t feel it’s a viable training option, but because it seems that reliability has been somewhat suspect.
Then you have the .22 conversion so you can shoot your rifle and the argument continues to rage. I had outstanding luck with my stainless .22 conversion from CMMG (stands for Central Missouri Machine Gun) but reports differ on reliability from person to person.
Anyway yesterday at the range I brought the HK 416 .22 Long Rifle along to fool around with for the first time after we were done shooting the .338 Lapua Magnum from Desert Tactical. Not only was I impressed, but I couldn’t get enough! I ran over 150 ASSORTED rounds through the rifle even mixing different brands in the magazine and it fed with 100% reliability AND accuracy from the diopter style rear sight and front horn sight. Granted I only fired it at some 6″ steel plates at 20 yards, but in defense of the rifle it had not been zeroed nor fired previous to that.
The only bummer from my first time out with the HK 416 copy? WE RAN OUT OF AMMO! Stay tuned for the full rifle review in the coming weeks. In the meantime, this video teaser will have to do…
