    Default Difference between AR15 receiver and HK416 receiver

    Besides the obvious one is semi and the other is auto what is the real difference between the receivers. If I wanted to make a clone HK416 can I use a AR15 receiver?

    I've notice a HK416 80% receiver was built by CNC gun and I searched through his specs but nothing was stated as being different other then the graphics.

    What do you all think?

    The only thing I think is different, is the magwell in the front is "flat" and cut in a little deeper to expose the bottom "lip" were as a ar15 lower kind of bulges out. And of course the 2 "holes" by where the stock goes in(I have no clue what these are still)

    The upper IMO is the only thing that's visibly different.

    So in other words yes, I think you should be able to easily make on out of a ar15 lower.

    I believe the H&K magwell is longer/straighter across the bottom/less angled. Some of the plastic magazines won't fit it without being modified. P-mags are a no-go, but I think there is a newer version that does fit the H&K lower receiver.

    I quess I'm blind unless I put them side by side. The 416 looks dang near exactly the same as an AR15. I assumed it was just like everyone elses version of the AR. Just enough tiny differences to claim that theirs is better, but milspec everywhere it counted.
