Semi-automatic Haenel CR223 in calibre .223 Rem.

Semi-automatic rifle CR223 / CR300 / CR6,5 / CR308

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 calibre .223 Rem. 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).

Individuality is possible

The semi-automatics of the CR class are available in four calibre variants and in different barrel lengths. Due to the compatibility with class standards, it is possible to develop or compile completely individual solutions on the basis of the system platform. Example silencer: The adjustable gas pick-up (all models except CR223) is optimised for use with silencers from B&T (Switzerland), the system partner for suppressors and components.

The CR at the police and authorities

Customers of the police and authorities appreciate the overall package of the sophisticated CR system platform and the customised service. For Haenel, every tender is a development project with the goal of maximum customer satisfaction; for the procurer as well as for the practitioner in the field.

The CR in sport shooting

Quickly, the leading self-loading rifle with its high compatibility to the AR15 class has conquered the hearts of sport shooters. The successful Frankonia Shooting Team also relies on the Haenel self-loader for IPSC shooting. No wonder: Made in Germany, the great adaptability of the rifle and its high precision from the series convince even demanding sportsmen.

The CR on the hunt

Why not? There are those hunters who carry the CR308, CR300 or CR6.5 as a universal, precise and fast hunting weapon. With the universal calibres, almost any game can be hunted and the “Lonesome Hunter” is always perfectly equipped: unconventional, but professional.
