At C.G.Haenel in Suhl, the first assault rifle in history was once developed and built by company boss Hugo Schmeisser – with the civilian CR223, Haenel is now continuing the long tradition of automatic and semi-automatic weapons from the region.
The Haenel CR223 in .223 Rem. caliber is a rifle in the AR-15 class and is fully compatible with the basics (accessories) of this category of semi-automatics. The indirect gas-operated rifle is a Haenel in-house development. This self-loading rifle convinces with many detail improvements for police and authorities – and also for sport shooting. Training variants are also included in the range (UEB and MANIPULATION).
