    Awhile back i ran across this article and forgot to post it. HK is trying to get permission from the German government sell a new rifle in Germany and here in the states, It will be a civilian version G36 under the name of HK293 here in the states and HK243 in Germany.

    Here is the article i found that gives detailed info on the weapon.

    After watching the ranting and raving about the Tavor Im sure the fellas at HK saw a major opportunity.

    Wish they'd just import a CRAP TON of HK93 A3 type stocks and mags so the prices would go down!

    It's still just a fast 22 rifle. Why spend a bunch unless it's a 308?

    Different bolt and a .223 barrel? I will pass. I would rather put my money towards a company that has a little more respect for America and makes a better product (FN). Also I highly doubt that this HK will be cheaper than the Scar.
