Some more and higher quality photos of not just the 433, but also of the 416/417, MG4, MG5, SA80 and various HK pistols:

That HK43 is sexy and sure would like to add one in my collection next to the G3/HK 91s. The G95K is nothing but a tribute to how the AR 15/M16/M4 is still a valid design and weapon to carry onto the modern battlefield. With a little machine work and modification to existing aftermarket parts a person could almost clone that puppy from AR parts.

Looks like a neat rifle.

If the gods ever decide to intervene and those became available here, I'd add one to the safe.

If not for the NFA, 922r and Germany's own version of the ITAR treaty, we could get some pretty easily if not for that after HK get some to the German Army should the adopt it. I hope that it gets adopted soon because I'd like to see some videos and reviews of it.

Also, it might be one of the few rifles to sustainably handle the M855A1 ball round, at least the receiver will be, given that it might be designed for .308/7.62mm NATO (M855A1 generates pressure similar to 7.62mm NATO/commercial .308 Win).

I'm also wondering how the whole charging handle/dust cover/bolt carrier interface works.

Some photos here of the bolt locked back during a mag change:
