Got a new .070 gas port DD bbl installed under warranty due to feedramp issues on the old .083 one.
Put 210 through it today.
Runs like a sewing machine now and more pleasant to shoot.

DD has switched to a .070 gas port on commercial bbls within the last few months.

You need to use the link to the actual .jpg file. Slap it between the img code tags and there you go!

Alright sorry for the OT post, but some others may benefit from this since PB disabled 3rd party hosting by default, and I've noticed a lot of people struggling with Imgur.

First open your app and select the camera icon at bottom center:



Once you select your photos on the next screen (I didn't snap a screenshot of this), select "Next at the top right.

Set your audience to from "Public to "Only Me", and select "Upload".



Then select "View " at the top right.



Long-press on the photo and a menu will appear with three options. Select "Share Direct Link " followed by "Copy to clipboard " I wasn't able to capture this menu in a screenshot, but you can see the "Copied to clipboard" notell below. (Note: This I how it appears for Android users, iPhone may differ slightly. The important thing is that you copy the direct link, ending with .png, .jpg, .gif, etc)



Then open the photo dialog box here and paste the link in. It should look like this:



Preview to make sure you're GTG and you're done.

Like the other poster pointed out, Lanco Tactical is the original manufacturer. The B5 versions should be easy to find.

In stock at OP.

Thank you!

I knew that Lanco was the original manufacturer, but also new I wouldn't find the original sold anymore.

I put up a WTB for either, also...maybe I'll get lucky.

Reminds me of my daughter shooting!

So, something that's been bugging me for a while is the last decent photo I took of my Mk18 Mod 0 build. I installed the KAC handguard incorrectly, with the front tab sticking out of the handguard cap. Someone kindly pointed this out and though I corrected it, I never bothered to update the thread with any pics (proof that I understand instruction and I'm not completely devoid of intelligence, lol!).



Anyway, it was a sunny day and I figured I'd snap a few photos of the rifle.



Apparently the Vero Beach marked covers are collectable?



Markings on the RIS are in odd numbers, one of the indicators that it's a RIS, not the newer RAS?





Until I receive my SR-15 stripped lower from One Shot Tactical, my Mk12 and Mk18 are sharing lowers.



I'm going to have to do something about the buttpad on the LMT SOPMOD. They list for about $15 from B5 Systems, but God knows how much these will cost in Canada, if I can get them all all. Then I have to figure out how to get the buttpad off, lol!





With my fake can because Canada.











That's it for now.

I have however been entertaining the idea of doing up a Block II build for a while now. It's just such a costly build that I've never seriously looked into it. I think if I do go that route, I may have to compromise a lot more than with my Mk12 build, for instance, the PEQ15.

For my personal requirements, it has no use whatsoever because first, I don't have NVGs, and second, even if I did, there's no place around here for me to run them (local ranges don't have night shoots, and as far as I know, there aren't any matches held at night). Though it does look cool having all that stuff bolted onto the front end of a very short rifle, I may look into getting an Airsoft clone just for pics (lol, like my fake suppresors).

Anyway, I may or may not have taken the first step down a very dark path and I pray my wife never finds out, or that I come to my senses and start doing the math on how much this could possibly cost me (even without a real PEQ 15).

Interesting build. I actually went back to a normal KAC rail on my MK18 and moved my FF KAC RAS to a 14.5 inch build with the same PRI front sight. I feel like the FSB makes the MK18, but dig the PRI.

Yeah my plan is to switch the PRI FSGB for a KAC FSGB down the road when I can track one down or trade for one that's not marked up 100%.

Being lazy, unless I was shooting at night I moved it back to keep the lens cleaner, that way if I spent a lot of time at the range and it got dark I could just move it up.

That said, when I use a pushbutton tailcap I like it pretty close to that spot.
