HAHAHA. When I had my plastic Gen 1 HK416 and saw the gen 2 metal body ones (which is the one that you see in the pic), I had a huge debate with myself that lasted for several months whether I should try hunting down the HK416 metal body replacement kit from China... and then I went "Aww... shucks, bugger this", bit the bullet, got the new one, and never looked back
. THe internals sure came as a pleasant surprise, as I was expecting only a MOSFET + metal-bushing based on the Gen 1 mechbox.
