New versions of the HK433

I've been trying to keep up with developments with this rifle. These are articles and photos of the latest version. Some changes have been made, namely going to a more "normal" FN SCAR or AR-15 pattern pistol grip and the charging handle has been moved to be more inline with that of the SCAR or Bren 2 (moved rearwards compared to earlier versions).

It also seems that HK is rationalizing on barrel lengths. Instead of 11", 12.5", 14.5", 16.5", 18.9" and 20", there's 11", 13.5" and 16.5". I'm not sure of the longer lengths as I haven't found much info on anything beyond the 16.5" variant.

It's too bad that it's probably a few years away at best before a commercial version comes out anywhere, let alone the US.

In German, but with good photos and a PDF document giving dimensions and performance info:

I've actually been looking for info on where to find high res photos from this shoot from various sites, but so far I haven't heard back from anyone.
