Heckler & Koch Is (finally) offering a “clone” of the United States Marine Corps M27 IAR. The new MR27 is based on the familiar MR556 but with added features from the USMC version. Let’s take a look.

Heckler & Koch @ TFB:

H&K only plans to produce 1,000 MR27 rifles. Some reports indicate that 500 will be plain rifles and 500 will include the full deployment kit, but that is not confirmed. MSRP for the standard MR27 without the deployment kit is $4,399. The full deployment kit sells for $9,499 and includes a hard case, the correct ACOG with RMR, Harris bipod, and rail covers. The MR27 is hitting shelves now, so keep an eye out for it.

From the manufacturer:

In 2010, the US Marine Corps adopted the HK M27 as its new Infantry Automatic Rifle (IAR). the rifle is names for the 1st Marine Division, 2nd Battalion, 7th Regiment, that tested the rifle and IAR concept for more than a decade. Replacing the M249 for rifle squads, the M27 was once declared, :the most tested weapon in the history of the Marine Corps.”

The M27 has proven itself again and again, from the test ranges at Twentynine Palms to the Global War on Terror – and beyond. With its precision, durability, and reliability, the M27 expanded beyond the initial role of IAR. The M27 is fielded today as an IAR, precision rifle, general infantry rifle, and most recently as a short-barreled upper receiver Reconnaissance Weapons Kit (RWK).

Now civilians can own a piece of Marine Corps history with a limited-run HK MR27, a civilian-legal tribute to the M27. the MR27 uses the same HK DNA and offers the battlefield-proven reliability, durability, and precision of a worth homage to such a proven military rifle.
