New combat rifle of the royal Norweagin armed forces[edit]

This weapon will replace the aging AG3 as the main combat rifle of the royal Norweagin armed forces. This as part of a larger program of updating their hand held weapons source: [1]&[2]

Removal of "More Accurate"[edit]

I have removed the "More Accurate" section of the barrel description. As someone who has carried an M-16 in combat and experimented with an HK416, there is not a chance in hell it is more accurate. The addition of a piston and more moving parts, means more barrel stress and more moving parts. Adding the piston degrades accuracy, not by much but it does.

First off, you should always sign your comments using ~~~~. I can't find the edit you made, and have no clue when it was made. Secondly, I believe the comparison was made between the HK416 and the M4 it's an upgrade of and not in comparison to the M16. The barrel being free-floating might or might not compensate but regardless there has to be some way to verify your statements through reliable sources, even more so since there is no way to determine if you are an acknowledged weapons expert or a kid who played Call of Duty.

Turkish use[edit]

How come it's back in the users section? IIRC, a few of us talked about removing it since the Turkish military is not looking into the rifle anymore? Ominae (talk) 04:39, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

If the Turks are no longer looking into the rifle, then it should not be in users. Maybe a sentence in history saying that it was considered though. (?)Grizzly chipmunk (talk) 16:08, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

No no the maroon berets use it. But in a small quantitiy of course. Note: see these [3], [4] KazekageTR (talk) 18:07, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

KSK use HK416?[edit]

As far as I konw, KSK do not use HK416, they use G36K, AWP, MP7, P12, G3, but they do not use HK416. I wonder why they refuse have a try. While G28 has been used as the DMrife in Germany Army, KSK still use G3; while HK416 has been used in SEALs, KSK still use G36K. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sunjinmeng (talkcontribs) 12:58, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
