Heckler & Koch HK416D SF 5.56mm NATO Semi-Automatic Short Barrel Rifle, FFL Dealer Sample Only


Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for a rarely seen, all-German factory model Heckler & Koch HK416D SF 5.56mm NATO semi-automatic short barrel rifle.  This model has been imported as and is available for transfer only as a Dealer Sample. BATFE has determined in its current configuration, that this rifle has “non-sporting purpose” under U.S. law.  This model is only available to valid Class 3 FFL/SOT holders as a sales sample and may not be transferred to an individual. These weapons are treated the same as Pre-May Dealer machine guns, and no Law Letter is needed for transfer.

This HK416D is AI date coded (translating to production in 2008) and features the 10.5″ HK factory barrel, along with HK’s original 416 pistol grip, collapsible stock design with HK’s Maritime buffer tube, and original style quad rail. The receiver is “SF” marked, indicating it was factory created as a “single-fire” German export version of the HK416D. However, its original, factory installed bolt carrier is a full-auto capable carrier. It will comes, as pictured, with no sights and one 30rd factory H&K magazine. This model was originally imported into the United States and used by a US Law Enforcement agency, and features all HK Germany factory original components, the same as it would have left the facility in Germany.

Mechanically, this SBR is in overall excellent condition. While it has most certainly been used, the internal fire controls and bolt carrier system only show minor wear. The internal upper and lower receiver display some minor polishing of the interior metalwork, but neither the upper or lower display any cracks, dents, dings, malformations, etc.. The chrome-lined bore is still very bright and shiny, with crisp and clean rifling. The chamber and feed ramps are in excellent, like new condition. The upper and lower receiver serial numbers are correctly matched.

Cosmetically, the exterior of the weapon shows handling marks and surface scratches in its factory original finish, however its original anodized finish is almost completely intact. It does appear that this weapon may have been painted over at one point, and then had the paint removed, as there are some duller areas of the anodization on the metalwork. Specifically, this can be seen on the picatinny grooves of the quad rail. The factory painted engraved fire controls and manufacturer’s labeling still show approximately 95% of its original white and red HK painted markings.

Under federal law, this “non-sporting purpose” imported weapon is available for purchase by valid Class 3 FFL/SOT Dealers only and may not be transferred to an individual. This weapon is currently on an e-File capable Form 3.
