>>55297358I dunno man, looks pretty gay to me.
>>55297358Whoops sorry, wrong picture.
>>55297390You will bend over and you will enjoy the butt plug can.
>>55297358>Peak performance reddition.I think the PEQ makes my gun ugly and if there was a viable tiny IR device to stick on the end of it I prolly would.Only have has a single opportunity to night shoot with it over the last year though and that feels bad.
Where the fuck do they get off charging $250 for squiggly front sight...https://www.omahaoutdoors.com/railscales-leaf-peq-15-front-sight/
>>55297430Ill take it off your hands
>>55297430>that front sight placementHoly smokes. Why not place it in front of the peq standing vertical?I could never get behind having the sling so close to my person. Kinda like wearing slim clothing.
>>55297455Midwest literally ripped it off and made it cheaper one of the head guys of Midwest was selling 3 on arfcom around the time they finally released thiers and that's what they were doing.
>>55297456Sorry chairs, I'd do anything for your love but I won't do that. PEQ will make its way onto my M4.
Can you please stop larping as a skeleton? You're really not funny. It's not even october yet.
>>55297499Shut up retard
>>55297499Don't make fun of his skelesona man, he's a boney.
I just got my first ar-15, but I think I have some kind of barrel obstruction? Right about where the gasblock sits, there seems to be a small burr. Boresnake can´t get rid of it. Am I fucked? I would guess if it was a burr the Proofhouse shooting would have smoothed it out? Pic related
>>55297430idk why you thought it looked good before, the peq makes it look infinitely better
>>55297473>>55297490Far more reasonable. Thanks.>>55297476Ergonomics for primary systems > redundant system optimization.Those irons are hardly functional past 100yds as they are now.
>>55297532I might just like the curves of what I started with like, 2 years ago on this gun. It's come a long way.
>>55297530>5 KB, 273x243)yeah
>>55297530Is your boresnake catching on it? Have you sent a cleaning rod through yet?
>>55297499He’s not larping bro
You're in a florida nightclub with your gf(male), when this guy walks up and slaps your ass.WDYD?
>>55297561Not catching, dont have a rod at the moment. Will get one next.
>>55297748Okay, post gas block real fast. A good close up from left right, and front.
When did ARG become one guy begging everyone to post pictures of their guns? It's like reading all the messages from pajeet dudes in your girlfriend's DMs.
>>55297885Sorry didn't read, wasn't accompanied by a photo of an ar-15.
Is it really worth having a 8lb piston ar just so it’s a little cleaner while suppressed?
Morning arg, when submitting my efile sbr paperwork does the picture of the reciever with serial number need to be engraved with trust info or can that be done after the stamp is sent to me?
>>55297885It's always been this way anon>opinion someone doesn't like>oh yeah well you're a noguns / post guns>anon doesn't post it >hahahaha I knew it noguns!>I own guns I'm just not gonna post it>n-no you don't!and so on and so forth. It's the nature of the beast even if it does get stale.
>>55297885I figure it’s either a fed or a commie trying to catalog peoples guns. Same with the people who beg for new pics.
>>55297911Aren't piston guns just better in general for suppressors?
>>55297553What is that light?
T2 is cool but I like CompM5 now. Looks way harder and scarier imo.
>>55297922I don't think so. It's more people wanting to identify posters in these threads by their guns.
>>55297928Inforce WML. The premier poorfag option IMO.
>>55297934>drops it>>55297544Radios dont go on belt!
>>55297922And what good would that do? Especially if there are no serial numbers visible who gives a shit.
>>55297967Because everything you say and post online can be tracked to you.
>>55297960Should I stack a T2 on my 1-4 elcan or should I sell the elcan and buy an electro cog to stack the T2 on?
>>55297960Sage Dynamics dropped his CompM5 on concrete like 20 times and it barely damaged it other than some scratches. The other guys who did the drop test whose first one failed got a second one from Aimpoint and that one held up. Idk. Probably a reason it’s the dot of choice for SMUs we’ve never heard of
>>55297992Its primarily marketed to participation trophy militaries who cant afford to add extra batteries to their logistics chain.>>55297986You should keep elcan, post AR
>>55297358Optic aside, what are the best upgrades for my cheap PSA for a $500 budget? So far all I've done is electrical tape the trigger pins, stock, and wedge it in the receiver to firm it up. Planning on anti-walk pins, ejector spring, a new pistol grip, possibly an adjustable gas block and JP/clone captured spring.
>>55297919>>55297922>>55297945All wrong. It's because no one is interested in feedback from people who just say what's popular in here but have no actual experience with the products, drills, gear, or setups being discussed. It also seperates criticism from know-nothings trying to stir the pot to people who are actually engaging in conversation.Posting gun demonstrates you at least participate in the hobby to the extent you can provide feedback on what you own.
>>55298030>Ejector springDont touch this if you arent having issues>Anti walk pins>Electrical tape on trigger pinsStop this shit. Trigger pins should not be walking>Adjustable gas blockYou dont have a suppressor>JP Captured springNow really we are getting into meme tier.Buy the following items >Weapon light made by surefire>Quality two point sling from blue force gear>Larue MBT2s>Red dot>Tubbs Flatwire springDo not fuck around with anything else until you understand what youre doing.
>>55298030Bro you got to be more obvious if you're trolling. It's getting harder and harder to tell being retarded on purpose vs actual retards.
>>55298016I just think it looks sick really, I already have a T2 on one upper and an ACOG on another so I wanted to switch things up
Looking at buying my first laser, ever. Is a FP peq the minimum standard
No /sqt/ so I'll ask here. I'm nogunz who has been playing too much arma, a lot of scopes like ACOG seem to have ranges for holdover printed directly on the scope, so how does it work? Are the scopes matched to a certain weapon/ammo e.g. M16 shooting whatever the military shoots? Do the companies manufacture a bunch of different scopes for different weapons to have the correct holdover? How does this all work out for an AR enthusiast who might have whatever caliber and barrel length, do you just not use scopes with the holdover ranges etched on the glass itself?
>>55297967Well .gov can get all kinds of info on you and leftys are just retarded.
>>55298062I know you've been asked this question so many times but I must ask again and then I will forever leave you alone.If you have to buy just one rifle as a do all what barrel length, brand (KAC is goat but it's never available so perhaps a RIS 3) and optic would you choose along with any other accessories?
>>55298030You are about to get bombarded with comments like "sell it start over". Don't do this.>barrelAnon what kind of round count are you looking at on an annual basis? What type of shooting do you do?>handguardPSA handguards are not good, but also not safety hazards. 7 sided Mlock in the $200 range or quad rail from larue, centurion, BCM, or daniel defense if you want to drop real cash will last you forever and offer plenty of utility.>triggerLowest priority but do a bit of research to make sure it is nested in your lower properly and everything is in spec.>buffer systemDon't touch this. Inspect for proper assembly. (Pic related PSA lower)>BCG and upper receiver Is probably fine forever. Again, a bit of research to make sure it will mesh well with everything and is in spec. Check feed ramps.>everything you listedScratch all of it. Focus on a milspec workhorse rifle. As your first gun don't get carried away tuning it just make it right and robust.
>>55298117>Are the scopes matched to a certain weapon/ammo e.g. M16 shooting whatever the military shoots?For the most part>How does this all work out for an AR enthusiast who might have whatever caliber and barrel length, do you just not use scopes with the holdover ranges etched on the glass itself?Its all close enough, a hit at 312yd on something set for 300yd is probably just going to drift it by a couple inches at most. These sort of BDCs are for "look! A dude! Shoot em!" not precision rifle engagements. Its why most sniper scopes use a tree in mils or people end up dialing.>>55298103Yes>>55298081I mean your funeral BUDkillt in the streets with that AAA alkaline bullshit
>>55297358>can't even put /arg in the title>no thread themecome on bro
>>55298166Lithium AAA’s exist
>>55298142What the fuck
>>55298081put t2 on elcan
>>55297780I think I'll get a cleaning rod and rub the shit out of it with a brass brush. Hoping that will deburr it. So pissed looking down a new barrel an seeing that...
>>55298159Staking looks fine bro what are you worried about
>>55298142Weird looking gas block but I don't see any grease or sealant or anything on it. Are you sure that there is an obstruction in there and it isn't camera gooffuckery?
>>55298136You have 4 essential food groups>#1: 10.3-11.5" 5.56 DI AR with t2,g33, light, MFAL and can>#2: 14.5-16" 5.56 DI SPR with 2.5-10/3-9/similar optic and a can>#3/4: 16" 308 DMR with 4-16/4-20/5-25/similar optic, bipod and a can>#3/4: 13" 308 SCAR 17 with Elcan 1/4 or Elcan 1.5/6 and canI dont want to hear about 12.3512" micro optimized BRT or BRN180 or SIG Trouser Snake until your 4 essential food groups are covered.>>55298186No, they dont
>>55298199I don’t like Elcan, just doesn’t do it for me.
>>55298211Who made the barrel?
>>55298249then just keep t2
Tfw no mark acog chastity cage mount
>>55298225Alright let's assume the person you're speaking with is a fucking loser who never has more than 5k in the bank. Is it best to buy a 14.5 unsuppressed with like an acog?
>>55298289What is your budget?
>>55298274I’m putting T2 on NGRS mount on my fucked URGI upper, compm5 on unity on my bcm upper
>>55298282Tactical xylophone, for when on overwatch waiting for something to happen (tactical mallets sold separately).
>>55298307>what is your budgetLet's say five grand all in all.
>>55298225>invest so much into 308 if you live east of the Mississippiwhy?
>>55298016>keep elcan, post ARI think I remember you hating me for some reason so you wouldn't help if you saw the gun but thanks I'll just keep the elcan.
>>55298289#1. Not only does it come first in the list and carry the number one, but its also the most broadly applicable.>Dots are easier to shoot than ACOG if you dont train a whole bunch>Rifle is light weight>Rifle works all hours (even if you drop MFAL)>Looks cool>Small so it can be transported around your house/car where you spend most of your time>Still enough punch to be carried most places in the lower 48 and not worry about wildlife>Doesnt have to cost all that muchACOG implies you are shooting things far away which by definition requires a team. Dot ambusher in his house hitting interlopers from the top of his stairwell before kicking a couch down the stairwell doesnt quite need a team to be annoying.>>55298331First off, thank the lord every day im west of the mississipiSecond off, terrain denial and vehicle stops are great usecases for 308If you have the ability to improve your positions to lock down avenues of travel then a 308 is going to give you a lot of flexibility. Now obviously something like a 300wm or 338 will extend that range but my objective here is practical manportable systems.[spoiler]And if you had to hand them out your fireteam wouldnt have one dude with a big ass bolt gun and a prayer inside closer spaces[/spoiler]
>>55298375Alright thanks for the info. I'm gonna grab a 14.5 with a red dot and flash light and call it a day.
>>55298375If I want a surpshit durr rifle what do I want?Is a mosin still worth it? I was looking at a yugo mauser clone but I am retarded and need spoon feeding
>>55298260Its a faxon barrel.The gun was build in hungary by a small german company.
>>55298410If you're going to go under 16'' get an 11.5 ddm4v7s upper, so you can practically use a suppressor on it whenever you decide to. Otherwise get a 16'' if you're actually going to ignore that option.
>>5529841011.5 with a can will be within your budget and serve you better. Do you need to be spoon fed a build list?>>55298428Mausers absolutely shit on mosinsAs long as its not turkish or some similar bullshit country you will be fine. 8mm also is a solid performer with solid availability
>>55298439>Otherwise get a 16A pinned 14.5 is a 16” barrel. Nigger.
>>55298439See anon I would but the $200 tax stamp and waiting a year for a suppressor is a no go
>>55298453>Do you need to be spoon fed a build list?You already know the answer to this.
>>55298375>First off, thank the lord every day im west of the mississipienjoy no rain fall and dying from a lack of ability to farm >Second off, terrain denial and vehicle stops are great usecases for 308m855a1 exists for that purpose, you can get them for around $2/round, seems more effective than to buy a whole new system>If you have the ability to improve your positions to lock down avenues of travel then a 308 is going to give you a lot of flexibility. Now obviously something like a 300wm or 338 will extend that range but my objective here is practical manportable systems.308 is still a pain to carry around, it is hopeless to lug around and will still be largely used for static defense anyways. Most people live in suburbs, they would be fine with a 14-16 inch 556 SPR for that use case.
>>55298453>Do you need to be spoon fed a build list?Sure
>>55298476>being this objectively and provably wrong?
>>55298497Now I'm convinced you're trolling.
>>55298497You're not A2, this is some random shit some random anon put together. Please fuck off spamming this shitty pic.
>>55298435It would be a a big outlier if faxon fucked up so bad they left a big burr like that in your barrel.>>55298453 this man has taken many pictures inside of barrels and might be able to deduce what's going on here if anything. If it was a burr your snake would be getting hung up on it.
>>55298453I can ship that to my house if I get a c&r yeah?
>>55298525Gun has to be 100years old or so if I'm remembering right
>>55298453>constantly shits on Eotechkeeps posting pictures of rifles with eotechhmmmm
>>55298515is the gas port drilled by faxon or by the gunsmith doing the assembly?
>>55298511put your trip back on A2, nobody is that much of a lackey ass kisser
>>55298550You can't afford anything on the picture you keep posting.
>>55298565i have like half of itt. you should guess who I am by now
>>55298476M855a1 is not magic anon, its still a 62 grain projectile bleeding energy and velocity fairly quick.14.5 throwing 855a1 is going to be sub 300ftlbs of energy @ 550yd, at 300yd you are under 600ftlbs of energy.Compare to a random 308 load and you are looking at 300ftlbs >1k yd which is well beyond where it needs to be, especially east coast chud engagement ranges. 300yd its sitting north of 1800ftlbs.>But da energy not determine da lethalityBut da energy do determine the ability to punch through auto glass and deliver lethal wounds at higher angles. da energy do determine the ability to punch through CMU and similar obstacles with fewer rounds.>308 is still a pain to carry aroundIts okay, east coast posters dont have to carry shit very far>Most people would be better off with SPRHence it being #2 and 308 items starting at #3Being able to lay on a 5.56 SPR all day >>> trying to bag up your shorty 11.5 and zip people with a dot at the same distances.>>55298525Depends on THE mauser>>55298539Almost as if opinions on the product are generally derived from experience.Wait that couldnt be!
>>55298549If you bought it from faxon, Faxon. If it's another company buying blanks, I couldn't tell ya.
>>55298591Do you still recommend the Trijicon Sneedo? Would be for a 16" SPR role
>>55298589I don't know so post a gun
>>55298465If you bought one a year ago instead of coping you'd have one by now
>>55298591fair enoughmy dream collections is 11 inch mr556a3 converted CQBR14.5 SR-1516 inch A/ECC SR-2513 inch that new updated scar 17.
>>55298549>gunsmith doing assembly But optimistic there buddy.
>>55297499Skelly is around for more than just this time of year bud
>>55298591i think the real issue is that east of the old miss, you almost never get sightlines over 300m. There are trees everywhere and not a lot of elevation (even in apalachia)
>>55298591Proud of you for calling them opinions buddy.People having to rationalize around why they get asked to post gun can't wrap their head around the idea you can get information from someplace other then mainstream internet.
>>55298673>>55298591What scenarios are you guys imagining that you would need to shoot over 25m without the Fed man cornering you and pushing your shit in?
>>55298591https://www.armsunlimited.com/Heckler-Koch-223-556-Semi-Auto-Pistol-p/mr223a3.htmA2, is this the best way to get a 416?

We can go cheaper naturally by stepping off SR15 mountain, stepping down off cool stock land, going down in optics, etc. All this shit is on a gradient. I mean you can get a DSArms mk18 thing for probably 1k stamped without glass/accessories.>>55298622Chuckfeedo 2-10x36 is pretty solid for a SPR role in terms of weight, size and cost.>>55298639Based and 4 essential food groups pilled>>55298673You need to think critical terrainYeah theres tight bush but if you want to be lord of the skeeters, king of swamp valley you be my guest.By contrast clearings that surround water sources, fields for growing, urban and suburban areas and industrial infrastructure is all fairly open. Yes roadway narrow when crossing, but roadway long when length wise.>>55298692Facts, my bad.>>55298698Do you have short term memory loss?>>55298705Perhaps when instockFor sure if you are allergic to building
>>55298698The one where I'm corning the fedman and pushing his shit in.
>>55298719>Do you have short term memory loss?The civil war was a long time ago, man. Or are you talking about Katrina where people got their shit kicked in by DoD and the Feds?
>>55298731Is you retarded or just dumb? Lurk and figure out how to follow a conversation on this Lithuanian haberdashery enthusiast forum before piping up.
>>55298731There was an event more recent than katrina where people were Burning Looting and Murdering people for days. All the while, various law enforcement agencies were cornered in their hovels/deciding to not enforce laws.>>55298746Quiver makes me think of carrying multiple of these, its more about enabling capabilities. By them being separate platforms not only do you avoid "1-1000m DO ALL CARBINE" syndrome but you also gain the ability to replace arms lost by attrition or arm people who dont have shit. i.e your buddy rolls up with one shoe and tattered clothes and you gotta go get his rare funko collection and small yappy dog from his house.
>>55298724People don't win against the Feds.>>55298756I've been here for years. It's better to plan for what's realistic and plausible. If you live in Ukraine or Mexico, yeah, gear all the fucking way up despite experience level. If you live in BFE Kansas, probably not a huge concern.>>55298763>There was an event more recent than katrina where people were Burning Looting and Murdering people for days.I must be out of the loop on this. >All the while, various law enforcement agencies were cornered in their hovels/deciding to not enforce laws.Selective enforcement of laws has always come down hard on the armed white man.

>>55298901#1 5.56 #2 308/6.5There's literally no point in having a .22 caliber gun for 300m+. This debate has been going on for fucking decades at this point, and the conclusion is always ALWAYS that 5.56 doesn't have the ft/lb to be useful beyond suppression and larpers don't have friends.
>>55298887SlicThingYou should punch out your old swivel though. It's gonna rattle and give your position away
>>55298917For appearance though, make it prettier>>55298925>larpers don't have friendsSome have wives/gfs that will need to carry shit. Long range 556 is a good option for them IMO once you're out of CQB territory

I agree you won't have 5ish dudes with you (who also all lost their funkopop collections) ever so there's not point on stacking guns you'll never shoot>.308Literally a dying round now. If you're falling for the BR meme you should at least wait for .277 Fury.
>>55298990And the boresnake is just slipping right past it no problem? Again I'll direct you to Mr.Grips here, he's got experience looking at all sorts of holes. On AR-15s. ᴬnᵈ ᵒᵗʰᵉʳʷᶦˢᵉ
>>55299021>There's historical documentation from AfghanistanThis is the same place where people were actively complaining the entire campaign that 5.56 at range wasn't enough. There is a fuckload of documentation on this, and it's even the scenario that the SCAR-H was first tested in.You're just wrong. 5.56 doesn't have the mass to be very effective at range.
>>55299008>I'm going to prepare myself and my gf for scenarios You should learn threat matrixes and what should take priority with your limited resources.Hitting shit at 600m isn't high for anyone on that matrix.

>>55299053You're wrong. The SCAR program exists because there was a time in Afghanistan where fobs were only getting a shipping container dropped every few months and it sucked ass keeping 7 different weapons systems up and running. Once big army started being able to supply socom and establish itself in country the SCAR got shit canned. Lethality had fuck all to do with the SCAR it's actually (ironically) the mk12's ammo solicitation contract that was the push for a more lethal 5.56. It succeeded btw.

>>55299351It's bad and your gun can't afford to get any worse
>>55299359Hey any thermal clip ideas to throw in front of an elcan? I think you had a scar setup like that right? For price range, I’d like to get a good value, as far as thermal goes. Something that will last but I don’t need the most premier socom gbrs glowie shit. Ill mostly use it to hunt and larp.
>>55299447Id highly suggest throwing them infront of a traditional TOOB optic if you want to make best use of a clipon thermal. Being able to crisp up the view of the thermal's display and ideally crisp up a reticle will extend the usable range/precision with the setup. ACOG and ELCAN also lack a protruding flat objective bell that seals light light leaks nicely. You will need to carry 100mph tape and a gutted can coozy for such tasks or fall victim to NVG users shooting at the glowing light in the bush.All that aside, thermals depend entirely on budget.Post budget.
>>55299429whats bad about it, the warcompgive me gratuitous detail
>>55299359For pulling water where would be a good place to start?
>>55299490Alright I should probably get nv 1st. Honestly the sky’s the limit budget wise but let’s say 5k
After much frustration with a rounded hex bolt, I have finished my AR rebuild. Probably gonna swap the cheap $40 optic at some point lol.
>>55299544Ok but as far as making it drinkable goes for an extended period of time in a portable or non portable way what are good options? I have always relied on bringing some and only once have I had to boil some spring water that was fresh and that people drink but I don’t trust like that
>>55299127Good thing the AR10 exists.But go ahead and be a moron. It's a free country.>>55299219I mean, you're directly contradicting what SOCOM said and what Phase A of the contracting service was declared, but if you want to live your truth, live in queen.>>55299250>outside of cqb territoryI'm not the stupid one here.
>>55299513Probably a body of water near your house? Look for blue shit on a map? You have a well?You should PACE out your water if you havent already. You can have 5k of gold dots but if you are waiting 3 days for the fight subsisting off dew you probably will be not in a place to fight.>>55299534Absolutely get head mounted NV first5k puts you at some multi function 640 res units like the RH25. But if youre going to do a clipon id highly suggest a 35-50mm objective weapon mounted unit. Objective size has importance on the max engagement envelope for thermals and really cant be understated.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRVG5u_JslY&feature=emb_titleThis video compares a 15mm objective to a 19mm objective and just look at the amount of clarity and pop you get with just 4mm of difference. I really think 25mm in a clipon role is very subpar for longer ranges so id stay clear of multifunction devices.Either way for larger clipons the CH50/Yoter-C serves me well, a voodoo-M would be a step up from that. Avoid REAP-IR.>>55299613>More on trigger than opticWtf based
>>55299619ducktape 2 lifestraws together and go spelunking in the nearest sorority septic tank for survival
>>55299619Determining source will determine what your filtration and purification needs are. Fresh mountain springs you Johnny Applessed your way to? Probably fine with a hollow tube filter (gravity, pump, lifestraw).Muddy puddle outside the local piggly wiggly? You will need a lot of filtration or you will just quickly smoke your sick REI filter.Your secondary consideration should follow up with a person count. Pumping water with a tiny katadyn is totally cool for like the first guy but buy dude #5 your arms will be falling off and you will have spent far too many calories on it. This is where larger gravity filters, sand filters, etc come into play.

Hey fellas, i have about $1,500.00 and i want to purchase my first AR. Any recommendations? I have money for accessories, but I wanted some advice on a solid 16 inch 5.56 rifle within that budget. Perhaps a Ruger? Or a saint edge? Any advice?
>>55299705Sounds like a good use for a hose and pump, or screening material along your route. Are there routes with existing screen materials? Lake nearby means high ground water, how deep is it? Could you handbore/dig a well in your yard? >>55299728Yeah man, im going to carry like 50gal of water and 5k of gold dots.[spoiler]Thinking man is downloading ag well reports off their state well registry and carrying decapping + earthstraw for ONLY 30lbs [/spoiler]>>55299740Dogshit is a strong wordIt just will never be as clear as a toobular optic with parallax.

>>55299694Filters are really really hard because most of them do not filter out viruses but the ones that do are more limited and really can sustain a man for 4 days stretched out to a week or more if rationing and at a lower activity level.

>>55300388My shit posting of my scrambled eggs gear aside... that's the worst thing I've ever seen.
>>55299359I prefer bolt guns to semi even though semi is objectively superior because of cost reasons. Realistically I'm not going to be stockpiling enough match grade rounds to both take advantage of a precision DMR in .308/CM/.277 and to make it worth having the semi auto capability. It's better to just accept that 70cpr tmks will do 70% of what a bigger caliber gun can and have the capacity to run bulk ammo when needed.Essentially I'm getting most of what a dmr can do in an SPR but am gaining more rounds stockpiled for the common cartridge shorty all while having a bolt gun to do stuff at longer ranges/ dick around with. Also easier to justify dedicated thermal on such a setup.
I hate DMT
>>55300263>>55300287>>55300309I just come here to learn about armalite rifles and shitpost sometimes.I'm usually anon when I'm on topic.

>>55300449no just i didnt train enough for it to become natural. i would have to set my housing on top of the acog to get a good sight picture. mostly my own short comings before i decided to go reddot
>>55300482Oh so it was only awkward with NODS usage? I have a T2 on a unity mount that I'm fine with the height but I was also thinking of going to acog with a stacked T2 and wasn't sure if it was awkwardly tall to the point where I can't even get a chin weld.
>>55300511it was a good height, i got a chin weld easily. t2 maybe not a chin weld AT THE MOMENT; since youd need an rmr->pic adapter versus the bosses -> micro adapter coming out soon. the added height from mixing adapters might push u that small amount over the chin. no nods it worked fine for me and wasnt awkward
>>55298225if getting a can for a 14-16" is it even worth it to bother with short cans or is it literally just rc2/saker all the way down?any experience with griffin armament cans?

>>55300561If youre taking a 14.5-16" the length shouldnt be your primary concern. Some people really want you to do a K can on those longer guns but for me the longer guns and cans are fine. At that point ive already committed to carrying a musket, dropping suppression/increasing cans isnt worth imo>GA cansDid you mean KAC bootlegs?>>55300640B&T makes the aimpoint branded one thats a good choiceOtherwise I think spuhr makes a solid one

>>55298030Literally dont do any of that you stupid fuck just. Youre doing stupid useless shit and wasting money which you obviously cant afford to waste. Buy a vltor a5 buffer kit. Captured shit is stupid, youd do better just buying a sprinco buffer spring than that idiot bait jp shit. Buy nicer sights, plastic mbus is shit and upgrading your sighting system is uhhhh a pretty big upgrade. What the fuck do you mean you taped the pos what the fuck anti walk pins lol that is a bandaid for gaped out egged pinholed machine gun lowers which is a problem you are too poor to ever encounter.
>>55301060I'm being honest new fag go check the archives and you can see Emy even proved it.
>>55301187>No, this is a2gripYou son of a bitch
>>55301207Significantly harder, they dont license them nearly as easily. They take into account proximity, growth, hiring space, supply chain timing, etc.T. seen several rejected app packets for them
I'm having a crisis, I realized I have too much redundant shit, I'm basically unfucking everything and playing musical optics/peripherals so I can have a dedicated night shortboi, night capable longboi, general purpose carbine, and everything else a clone/novelty thing. I'm fucked waiting for a few WMLs and mounts to come in though, along with my MARS L lower so I can stop looking at MK18/MARSURX anon's guns and wishing I did something like that.
>>55301008>>55301198Do you happen to be a 12.5" Chad? We narrowed it down over a few threads to be either be barrel/gas wonkyness or a batch issue. I even shot some more with an unlubed chamber and I still got a split case.With these posts I'm more confident it's just Tulammo bad.
>>55301275>12.5"Wouldn't be caught dead with a musket
>>55299415You stupid or something? The barrel extension is what contains all the force from the cartridge firing, as long as the bolt locks in the extension you’re gtg.
>>55297384What lower brand is that?
>>55302945Are you stupid?
>>55300771Do you think it should be lower like a drop leg or directly on the belt? I want to know just how stupid you are.
