Heckler & Koch has been entrusted by the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency with the supply of HK416 Assault Rifle Sets for their Norwegian Armed Forces.

The supply order will run over 36 months, beginning in 2019 and has an overall value of approximately 22 million Euro. The Norwegian Armed Forces was the first customer to adopt the HK416 in the year 2007.

The HK416 is a modern and highly modular assault rifle platform for law enforcement and military users. Depending on the requirements it can be tailored to the demand of the user concerned without having to make concessions regarding the strict specifications made on accuracy and handling safety.

The most prominent users are Germany (G36), France (HK416AIF), Norway (HK416), Spain (G36), Lithuania (G36), Latvia (G36) and the UK (SA80A2/A3). Added to these is a very large number of military and police commando units having adopted one or several weapon models made by Heckler & Koch.


Heckler & Koch is one of the world's leading manufacturers of small arms with firmly established roots in Germany. For more than 60 years, the company has been a reliable partner to security forces, the police and special forces of NATO and NATO-associated states.
