HK417 did not pass German Army DMR tests.
Old article but I didnt know this had happened. Plus, I kind of like seeing HK fail. #IamAhater
This was good too , A DI gun "out performing piston platforms.
Turns out the Brits chose the LMT MWS over the Scar H or HK417, supposedly it out performed the piston platforms in both accuracy and reliability.
