Using the Heckler & Koch’ MR556A1 rifle, chambered in the popular 223/5.56, as the platform to build a competitive rifle, and with input from many competitive shooters, the Heckler & Koch Competition Model was developed for both casual shooters and the most demanding competitor. Ideal for 3 gun matches, the Competition Model adds the most critical fundamental enhancements to the standard MR rifle. Foremost among these additions are the new 14-inch Modular Rail System (MRS). Lightweight and easy to customize, the MRS allows sections of accessory rails to be added by the shooter where desired, but keeping weight down and presenting a more ergonomic and comfortable handguard surface when compared to rectangular full rail systems.
The Heckler & Koch MR762-A1, chambered in the popular 308 Win, is a semi-automatic rifle originally developed from the fully automatic HK417, the MR762A1 LRP employs the same HK proprietary gas piston operating system found on current HK rifles and carbines, using a “pusher” rod in place of the gas tube normally found in AR15/M16/M4-style firearms. Taking an essentially standard MR762A1 (caliber 7.62 x 51 mm NATO) semi- automatic rifle, Heckler & Koch USA turns it into a more effective precision rifle by an astute addition of the right optics and accessories. A Leupold 3-9VX-R Patrol 3-9 x 40 mm scope and mount, HK G28 adjustable cheekpiece buttstock, and LaRue Tactical BRM-S bipod are the primary add-ons that make the MR762A1 Long Rifle Package (LRP) more than a sum of parts.
The Heckler & Koch MR762-A1 308 Win rifle is a direct descendent of the HK416/417 series, only in a semi-automatic rifle configuration developed for civilian users. Using the HK-proprietary operating system, the MR762A1 is gas operated and uses a piston and a solid operating “pusher”rod in place of the common gas tube normally employed in AR15/M16/M4-style weapons. Pioneered by Heckler & Koch in the G36, HK416, and HK417; this method virtually eliminates malfunctions common to direct impingement gas systems since hot carbon fouling and waste gases do not enter the receiver area.
