No, I intentionally left it on. It didn't look "right" to me otherwise.

I found a MP53 Upper by Recon414. I used it to make a H&K-51B clone.

"MP53" as in HK53? Or are they two different weapons?

I mean the short carbine version of the HK33. I actually thought about making a HK32 but desided not to.

Another build that, like my G36 from earlier, "speaks" to me.

The 416 just seems too heavy for an AR

It doesn't help that HK made the rail system so freaking heavy, or so I've heard. Hopefully this was addressed in the 416A5 version they submitted to the IC competition.

But, you know, I was just fiddling around, trying to accurately detail up the 416 lower and I kept going. For some reason, the Aimpoint Micro just fits so well on it.

I've held the civilian 416 and damn it is heavy
