Umarex's GBB HK416 is licensed by the German arms maker, Heckler and Koch and bears real steel markings. These include every little detail of the real deal ones, like the manufacturer, the quality controls and the shooting mode indications.
The HK416 is made by VFC which is one of the most known airsoft manufacturers with attention to detail and high level of craftmanship.
The HK416 represents the full size carbine with the 14.5 inches barrel and the metal 10 inch free float rail system.
This Umarex 416 benefits from a full-metal construction, which makes it super solid. Especially the aluminum outer barrel, which has been CNC-machined to ensure a high quality construction throughout.
The railed handguard follows closely to the real steel equivalent, being embedded into the upper receiver. It also features a one-screw fix/take down.
It's the little details which count, and this Umarex gun has plenty. Such as the authentic looking gas piston system and the cosmetic bolt plate, which is able to lock when pulling the cocking handle and can be returned into position by pressing the bolt release button, making it easy for hop-up adjustment.
The selector lever, mag catch and bolt release are all made of steel.
Both front and rear sights are removable. They follow the main design concept of HK's sight that have been reliably working for 50 years now. The rear is adjustable as well.
The only non-metal parts of the gun are the pistol grip and the stock which are made from reinforced polymer. The pistol grip is designed by HK and made more ergonomically to fit the hand. The stock bears a rubber butt plate to make using it more comfortable.
The user will definetelly be surprised by the realistic way that the model works. Insert a magazine in the magwell and rack the charging handle to load the first BB. With every pull of the trigger, the slide moves back and forth causing a mayhem both from the BBs leaving the barrel and from the heavy recoil it offers.
When empty, the slide locks to the rear. By inserting a fresh magazine, push the bolt release catch and the bolt flies home and the gun is ready to shoot again.
The model is compatible with VFC/SOCOM Gear M4 gas magazines, as it is a VFC construction.
The HK416 is a model built on the design of the M4 carbine, but with major modifications in order to participate on a US Army competition about the M4's replacement. The external look of the 416 is close to the M4 carbine but the internals bear upgrades, most notably a new gas operating system from the Heckler & Koch G36. Customers have the option of purchasing a new upper receiver, buffer and drive spring to refurbish M4s or buying a completely new and complete HK416.
