Yes, you read that title correctly: Brownells is releasing a limited number of genuine HK416 kits onto the open market.

Ever wanted to pretend you shot Bin Laden? These are for you–as well as for anyone else who wants to have the actual stand-out piston driven AR.

There are very few of these (albeit incomplete) kits available in the US.

Here's what Brownells has to say about them:

GRINNELL, Iowa (November 8, 2018) – Starting November 10, Brownells will offer a limited quantity of parts kits for the HK416 – the type of rifle used by U.S. Navy SEALs in the 2011 raid against Osama Bin Laden.

Disassembled from German military machine guns, the parts kits will be available initially only to Brownells EDGE members on Saturday, November 10, and then to all Brownells customers on Sunday, November 11 – Veterans Day.

The HK416 kits, listed as #100-026-983 at, contain all factory original parts except for the lower receiver, bolt assembly and barrel. The kits retail for $3,299.99.

In addition to the authentic military HK416 kits, Brownells will also begin accepting pre-orders for all other parts and the barrel tool required to finish the kits into complete rifles. All NFA rules apply.

Sold separately and expected to ship by the end of Novermber, those other parts include:

•#078-000-487 BRN-4 Stripped Lower, $399.99 retail

•#078-000-488 HK416-style barrel, $399.99 retail

•#078-000-489 HK416 Barrel Install Tool, $79.99

•#078-000-490 HK416-style Complete Bolt Assembly, $199.99

The BRN-4 stripped lower is Brownells’ take on an HK 416 receiver and started as an HK factory forging.

The HK416 parts kits are available exclusively at Brownells and are very limited in quantity.

Brownells brought several of these forgings into the United States, and finished them into stripped lowers with correct selector-switch markings and proper contours for an HK416.
