Move over HK-416 & 417 and Behold Heckler & Koch’s New MR762A1 Rifle

🔵 HECKLER & KOCH IS DUE TO BEGIN PRODUCTION ON MR762A1 RIFLES IMMINENTLY AT ITS NEW MANUFACTURING PLANT IN COLUMBUS, GEORGIA.

Heckler & Koch has announced that it intends to manufacture MR762A1 rifles at its new factory in Columbus, Ga.

The company confirmed the news in an Instagram post with a picture of the rifle. The caption reads, “If you didn’t know, we have some MR762a1 rifles queued up for production in Georgia.”

HK opened up its new 50,000 square-foot facility last summer. The move was a multimillion dollar investment and is expected to create 84 new jobs in the Columbus area over the next two years.

Chambered in 7.62x51mm, the MR762A1 features a 16.50-inch cold hammer forged barrel. It tips the scales at 9.84 pounds with an empty 20-round magazine. The overall length with the stock extended is 39.10 inches. With the stock retracted, the length is reduced to 35.94 inches.

The MR762A1 is a direct descendent of the HK416/417. As such, it features an adjustable buttstock; ergonomic pistol grip; mechanical sights; and either the HK modular rail system or the HK free-floating four-quadrant rail system/handguard.

Additionally, the MR762A1 uses a short-stroke gas piston system.

Initially introduced back in January 2012, the MSRP on the MR762A1 is $3,995. Watch the video of the rifle and check its specifications below :
