I just got done writing up a brief article for Army Times/ Gear Scout showing the IWC Hand Stop on the BCM Kino. The Kino has been off to the side for a little while as I've been using a 11.5" upper on my duty carbine. While working with the IWC hand stop paired up with the Kino, it reminded me of exactly why this setup is so nice. Light weight, great all around barrel length, and fantastic handling really come together for a slick setup. If it wasn't for me currently using folding sight/ slick top setups right now, I think this would make for a perfect all around duty rig.

Anyway, I know a bunch of guys love the Kino setup, so here is a link, and some pictures. For anyone on the fence, check it out, and go fire one if you can. If you can't do live fire, do some basic dry drills and room clear, and see if you don't have lust for Kino... wait, that just sounds wrong.

linky no worky for me either.

The Kino is cool. I have one in addition to a standard 12.5 and have been meaning to do a write up of them for those not sure what they want.
just becasue you can shoot well does not mean you will fight well when the time comes. Get trained!

I'd love to read this, as I'm trying to decide between the two 12.5" options, myself.

Looks like KAC

The K-Config is certainly a tits setup. Many might not get over the $200 hump just to cut ~2" off their barrel, but the difference is dramatic.

To kind of make a long story short, if you want to run a can especially a relfex type get the standard and if not get the Kino.

I'm taking a break from shooting for a while so I guess now would be a good time to do a write up.

Well, that directly addresses my single largest concern! Sounds like a "regular" 12.5" for me!
