The M416, or HK416 is a German assault rifle designed by Heckler and Koch. It is chambered in the 5.56 by 45mm cartridge. The rifle is heavily inspired by the AR-15 design. It started production and service in 2004. Its compact size and high modifiability gave it a good reputation, and soon it became the main service rifle of France and Norway.
The M416 is the second best assault rifle and proceeds to take the crown of the lowest recoil of an AR when it is stocked.
Bullet Drop, and bullet speed are the best in any rifle, making a good range choice.
"German do things properly."
