Some absolutely great new photos of part of Heckler & Koch’s product range have emerged. Taken by German photographer Oliver Louven, a Bundeswehr veteran, the photos feature a plethora of Heckler & Koch’s current range of small arms.
Louven, an accomplished photographer, has worked for a number of manufacturers inluding H&K, Sauer, Zeiss and Hornady. The following photos come from two sections for product and ‘application’ photography, first up the HK416F-C, the ‘C’ or Court (French for short) model of the French Army’s newly adopted rifle has an 11 inch barrel.
Sadly, Louven has only shared one photo of H&K’s latest, the HK433, the rifle appears to be a 12.5″ barrel variant also mounted with an Aimpoint. Full technical details on the HK433 are available on H&K’s site here.
Next up is the, 7.62x51mm chambered. HK417A2 complete with H&K’s new style fore-end, B&T Rotex-V .308/7.62mm suppressor, optic and bipod for the designated marksman role. The HK417 is currently being examined and adopted by the US army as the M110A1.
The final rifle showcased is a rare treat, as few decent photos of it are widely available. H&K’s revamped G36, the HK233, is shown both in profile and in action. Technical details on the HK233 can be found on H&K’s site here.
Finally, we have some shots of the HK SFP9, marketed in the US as the VP9, which has recently been procured by Berlin’s police force.
