HK417 assault rifle was recently developed by famous German arms-making company Heckler und Koch, as a "big brother" to the 5.56mm HK416 assault rifle. Information on this weapon first surfaced in 2005, on the wave of new interest for the 7.62mm NATO caliber military rifles. This interest came in from experience of international forces gained in Afghanistan and Iraq, where increased range and penetration of the 7.62mm NATO bullets was (and still is) quite useful. Several companies developed new or updated versions of 7.62mm weapons, with intent to sell to military, law enforcement and in certain cases - to civilian shooters as well. The HK417 is one of such weapons. It is primarily oriented toward US market, as it mimics the popular 5.56mm AR-15 / M16 rifles in external appearance, controls, and many design features.However, there are more than few new and original features in HK417,including Heckler-Koch's patented piston-operated gas system,user-changeable barrels etc. Like most other competitors, HK417 rifles are available in several barrel lengths, suitable for full scale of military operations, from close combat in urban or forest areas and upto long-range accurate shooting.
HK417 rifle is a gas operated,selective fired weapon of modular design. It uses short-stroke gas piston located above the barrel, that operates the 7-lug rotating bolt. Barrels are cold hammer forged, and could be replaced by end user in several minutes using simple tools. There are four basic patterns of barrels available for HK417 as of now (2008):305mm / 12" and 406 mm / 16" standard barrels and 406 mm / 16" and 508 mm/ 20" accurized barrels. Accurized barrels provide 1 MOA accuracy (with proper ammunition). Receiver is made from high grade aluminum alloy and consists of two parts (upper and lower), connected by two cross-pins a-la AR-15 / M16 rifles. Combination-type safety / fire selector allows for single shots and full automatic mode. HK417 retains all M16-style controls, including last round bolt hold-open device, bolt closure device, rear-based charging handle and magazine release button on the right side of the magazine well. HK417 is fitted with four Picatinny rails on free-float handguard as standard, and will accept any type of sighting devices on STANAG-1913 compliant mounts. It also can accept modified HK AG36/AG-C 40mm grenade launcher, which is clamped directly to bottom rail. Buttstock is of modified M4 design, multi-position telescoped. Production HK417 rifles use proprietary 10- or 20-round box magazines, made of translucent polymer(early prototypes used HK G3 magazines).
Umarex's Full Metal HK 417 is the first of airsoft AEG of it's kind to hit the market. It is very similar to the HK 416 except that it's real steel counterpart uses 7.62 caliber rounds so the magazine and lower receiver is larger than the HK 416.
It is of a full metal construction and has been engraved with HK Trademarks as it is licensed by H&K. The ergonomic pistol grip is made out of nylon fiber and is very comfortable to grasp. The 6 position adjustable crane stock is also made of nylon fiber and has very authentic H&K markings as it should. The butt pad itself is made of rubber which is very comfortable when applied against the shoulder.
The HK 417 features a solid, CNC Aluminium, free float rail system and sling attachment points are mounted at the back. The internals are of exceptional quality as from VFC with self shimming gears which makes for a very smooth operating system.
Another new feature of the HK 417 is that that the version 2 gearbox has now been upgraded to a V2.2 gearbox. The new features consists of the motor being at a steeper angle which allows the use of traditional pistol grips and anything that will come out in the future. The top part of the gearbox is a little thinner as well so the receiver of the HK 417 can be thinner in comparison to what you're used to seeing on a traditional M4/SR25 AEG.
It shoots at a very consistent 365 fps and consistency is what you look for. It's great for most CQB areas but if it's still too high or too low for you, we can change that!
In the movie '13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi' by Michael Bay , the HK417 was used by GRS team members 'Oz' and 'Boon' for long range support which had a 16 inch extended barrel with a 9 inch rail system.

The Redline SR-E Lightning is a Patent Pending HPA drop in cylinder replacement. The Lightning is not just another cylinder replacement engine. It uses only a single solenoid, has a forward biased nozzle and fires from a true closed bolt.
Due to its true closed bolt design the Lightning is much more consistent in seating the BB in the bucking from shot to shot when compared to a typical open bolt HPA engine. The result is more consistent shot to shot velocity, tighter groupings and greater accuracy at range when compared to open bolt HPA engines.
A unique feature of the Lightning is that it uses a mechanically sealed, dump chamber. Rather than relying on solenoid dwell to control the volume of air used to propel the BB, the Lightning fills an internal air chamber at the pressure set by the users external supply regulator.
When fired, this air chamber is mechanically sealed off from the supply and the chambers contents is released down the barrel to propel the BB. This feature contributes to the Lightnings excellent shot to shot consistency, with no air wasted do to improper dwell settings.
The Lightning is also super simple to set up. Since there is no poppet dwell to tune you just set your supply regulators output pressure to match the Joules required and you are good to go. The proper amount of air needed for each shot regardless of BB weight, barrel length or any other factor is all that is released.
The FCU is programmable for:
1 : Nozzle Dwell.
2: Semi Auto Max Rate of Fire
3: Full Auto / Burst Mode
4: Full Auto Rate of Fire
5: Anti Stiction Pulse
6: Selector position
You can also convert the Lightning from electro-pneumatic to a mechanical-pneumatic operation with an optional conversion kit.
