Knight’s Armament SR-25 Versus H&K MR308 (HK417 in US)

I had a chance to talk with Brian at the Calgary Shooting Center about his restricted .308 rifles, the MR .308 and the Knight’s SR-25. We only talk about the MR .308, but they are both gorgeous guns to shoot.

These are still very much available in Canada. Keep in mind that we never touch 416 or 417 parts though. Just the MR223 and MR308s. The 416/417 are totally different platforms. (Well subtly different. But different enough that they are incompatible) which is why the MR308 is restricted and not prohibited. FN’s SCAR on the other hand: the civilian version can take military parts, and as a result it was listed as prohibited when the RCMP classified it.
Yes, the MR308 is restricted as an AR-15 variant.

    ” FN’s SCAR on the other hand: the civilian version can take military parts, and as a result it was listed as prohibited when the RCMP classified it.”

    Hey TV-press pass, although this statement is 100% true. It is not really why the prohibited the SCAR. It’s 100% on looks, the FN ps90 can take the parts from the original p90. So that whole argument about “because it could possibly go full auto” is just for the media. They don’t actually have criteria like that at the RCMP firearm classification lab… If they don’t want it coming in… it won’t nuf said. I even remember watching one of Rod’s video’s from Civil advantage and he explained how a friend used the access to information act to find out how they originally created the prohibited list. They literally went through a magazine.. pointing at pictures of guns they didn’t like… Disgusting that our law’s are based on that.

    • Those G28s are pretty stellar looking guns eh?

      Actually I’ve since heard other rumours on the SCAR front. That essentially the initial over-eager importer jumped too early and brought in “movie rifles” with full auto components. Hence the current FRT.
