HK416 - Delta Force - Weapons

It is believed that Delta force has now adopted the HK416 as its primary carbine, favoring it over the Colt M4A1.

The HK 416 is based around the M4 series of carbines and is the product of a colaboration between Delta Force and the German arms manufacturer, Heckler and Koch (HK). The resulting weapon is said to be less prone to malfunction. One of the main changes to the M4 design is the 416's gas system which is based around that found on the G36 (also manufactured by Heckler and Koch).

HK416s are available with 4 different barrel lengths :

  • D10RS (10.4 inches)
  • D145RS (14.5 inches)
  • D165RS (16.5 inches)
  • D20RS (20 inches)

A set of rails allow the fitting of aiming devices, illumination devices and grips as well as a AG416 40mm grenade launcher.

The HK 416 (D10RS) is also believed to be in widespread use within the elite US Navy counter terrorist unit, DEVGRU, otherwise known as 'SEAL Team 6'. DEVGRU commonly use the HK 416 fitted with an AAC ( Advanced Armament Corporation) supressor.
