    Up for sale is one of my "safe queens"....
    I took it out and fired it once.... I ran 2 mags through it, cleaned it, then back to the safe it went...
    The rifle is amazing to fire, but I'm a SCAR guy, and this rifle just isn't for me....
    I'm asking $3950.00 for it.... I know that sounds high, but check out gunbroker, when they are listed, they sell at auction for $5500-$6800... Before the insanity, I paid $2700 for the rifle, and $100 for the factory mag... I waited 8 months to get it...


    Here is how I dressed it:

    But I'm selling it without the optics, and the foregrip.... Sale is the rifle, 2 factory mags, manual, and HK tool....

    Shoot me a PM if you interested, worst I can say is no thanks....


    Here's the info from the HK website:

    The H&K556A1 A direct descendent of the HK416, the MR556A1 is a semi-automatic rifle developed by Heckler & Koch as a premium level commercial/civilian firearm with match rifle capability. Like the HK416, the MR556A1 is a major product improvement over conventional AR-type carbines and rifles. The MR556A1 uses the HK proprietary gas piston operating system, employing a piston and a solid operating “pusher” rod in place of the gas tube normally found in AR15/M16/M4-style firearms. This method of operation virtually eliminates malfunctions that are common to direct impingement gas systems since hot carbon fouling and waste gases do not enter the receiver area. This is the same key feature critical to the success of the HK416 rifles used by leading military and law enforcement customers. The MR556A1 is produced in the USA using American and German made components. The MR556A1 uses many of the same assemblies and accessories originally developed for the HK416 including the HK free-floating four-quadrant rail system. Info on gun from Heckler & Koch website..... The HK Free Floating Rail System (FFRS) handguard has four MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” rails and allows all current accessories, sights, lights, and aimers used on M4/M16-type arms to be fitted to the MR Series. The HK rail system can be installed and removed with simple tools and returns to zero when reinstalled. The MR556A1 also has a Picantinny rail machined into the top of its upper receiver for mounting optics and mechanical sights. Unlike earlier prototypes, major subassemblies, including the MR556A1 upper receiver/barrel assembly, are fully interchangeable with other high quality AR-style firearms. MR556A1 upper receiver kits can be used to retrofit competing legacy AR systems. Like the famous HK416, the MR556A1 uses a German-made barrel produced by Heckler & Koch’s famous cold hammer forging process. The highest quality steel is used in this unique manufacturing process producing a barrel that provides superior accuracy and long service life. But unlike the HK416, the MR556A1 does not use a chrome-lined barrel. Chrome-lining can sometimes mask bore imperfections and negatively affect accuracy. For the new series of Heckler & Koch semi-automatic MR rifles, HK designers and engineers believe best accuracy comes with an unlined bore. Used with the HK Free Floating Rail System, the barrel does not touch the handguard, ensuring the barrel is truly free-floating for maximum accuracy. The unchromed barrel has an internal profile of 6 lands and grooves with a 1 in 7 inch (178 mm) twist. It is also moderately “swagged” with a slightly smaller internal diameter at the muzzle end than the chamber end. This feature has a positive effect on bullet accuracy and velocity. The thick, heavy contour 16.5-inch MR556A1 barrel also contributes to its excellent accuracy. A precise enhanced two-stage trigger adds significantly to the accuracy of the MR556A1 and an extended latch charging handle makes operating the rifle with a telescopic sight easier. The retractable buttstock can be locked into a solid, non-moving position by tightening an Allen screw in the bottom of the stock. Special target rifle takedown pins ensure the upper and lower receivers are firmly mated for accurate performance. Designed to function with a wide variety of high quality 5.56 x 45 mm ammunition, the MR556A1 uses a C.I.P. dimensioned chamber (a chamber with dimensions specified by the Commission Internationale Permanente).The MR556A1 also functions reliably with most quality Caliber .223 Remington ammunition. The MR556A1 is being produced with the same commitment to quality as German-made HK firearms. By using joint U.S./German manufacturing, Heckler & Koch leverages the relative strengths of two continents to make the preeminent AR-type firearm, combining the designs innovations of the USA and Germany into one new product.

    Just a idea but it probably isn't smart to tell how much you paid for something when you are asking more then twice the price.. We all understand that the demand has caused prices to sky rocket, but basically you are saying I'm gonna rip you off by asking twice the price of what I paid for it.. Not a smart sales tactic!!!!!

    Actually I need to disagree with you.... I have found that full disclosure is the best way to sell a product... I'm not hiding anything, and being honest... If I wanted to double my investment, I'd be charging $5600, not $4700... And as far as "ripping somebody off" goes, I must disagree... Its a rifle that is in high demand, and rare. I'm a full $1000 less than anything on GunBroker..Today's $4700 rifle can be worth $6000+ tomorrow...
    If you are interested in the rifle make and offer, if your not keep your opinions to yourself...

    Please understand the their are folks that don't have a clue about supply and demand and capitalism. They are the people that are jealous of others prosperity and good fortune and will always be in the "unfair, you owe me" line. The rifle is awesome and if I wasn't short of cash right now, we'd be seriously talking.

    That auction ended on 11/3.... Before the madness & proposed gun ban... Back then Pmags were $12.00 each how much are they now?? TRIPLE THAT....
    I also bought a house 8 years ago for $100,000.... SOLD IT RECENTLY FOR ALMOST DOUBLE WHAT I PAID.
    Should I have sold that for the original sales price also??? Because the area around the house changed, it's value went up... This is what happens is a capitalist market... If you want to be in a communist economy please move to N. Korea, China, or Cuba... I promise you that every one will be treated the same there....

    WHY DO I NEED TO BE DEFENSIVE ON MY LISTING ???? IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE GUN OR THE PRICE IGNORE IT !! THE COST IS NOT OUT OF LINE WITH THE CURRENT MARKET.....


    Here is a current auction that has 5 Bids and is currently at $5000....

    Thanks for the interesting trade options... Some have been more "creative" than others.... Only rifle I'm interested in is a Sig716.. Or something similar... I also dropped the price to around what was being offered.... I'm not in a panic to sell it... But I am to lazy to put it on Gun Broker... I cannot figure that out... Do I ship directly to an FFL of the buyer, or do I take it to an FFL on this end, and then it ships to an FFL on the other end? I don't want to be wrong and have the ATF kick in my door... I'm sure I'm already on enough watch lists :)

    I am with you on the scars! They are the greatest of all rifles! HK rifles are very hard to get ( i thought i heard somwhere that they are not currently making civilian rifles). That is a lovely gun for a fair price.

    If you were in my neck of the woods I would be very much interested in a possible SIG 716 trade. Mine is listed on NWFA as well.
