Heckler & Koch USA have been teasing the start of MR762A1 production at their Columbus, Georgia plant.
Heckler & Koch USA opened their new 50,000 square foot factory early last year with the company investing nearly $30 million into a plan to expand within the US market. When the new plant was announced HK USA said they aimed to create as many as 84 new jobs over the next couple of years. With both German and American engineers and technicians working in Columbus. Previously key MR762A1 parts were imported from Germany, it may now be that these are being manufactured in Columbus.
On 24th February, HK USA posted an update on twitter announcing “If you didn’t know, we have some MR762a1 rifles queued up for production in Georgia”, the post, however, featured a photo taken by Down Range Photograph. Interestingly, the photo actually appears to be of an MR556 rather than an MR762A1.This post was originally published on this site
