Mk 18 / CQBR (Page 1409 of 1421)

Link Posted: 1/15/2021 12:13:59 AM EST
Well boys, I went ahead and did the thing. Painted the MK18 today using Aervoe Earth Yellow (maybe?) and Field Drab. Im a big fan of this color scheme, and like it way more than my old Krylon camo jobs that I used to swear by. Hopefully it wears in fairly quick, as it looks too good right now. I didnt paint the EOTech because Im about to sell it to a buddy (along with the CTR). B5 Coyote SOPMOD on the way, and a new optic is in planning stages. Trying to decide between Aimpoint T2, NF NX8, or an FDE EOTech. Tried to take some pics in varied lighting, but it was getting dark quick. Ill post up better outdoor pics in the future.

Dude, what is that white garment on your couch? Looks like it belongs to a female friend.

Also, the ctr looks good on there.

Looks like a laundry net bag and not the crotchless panties you were hoping for

Would say its a white separate wash bag for female delicates.  Mesh is used during painting of the carbine.

You gave me a mini heart attack thinking I had missed something in the background... but no, it is my flannel shirt and the remainder of the mesh laundry bag that I didnt chop up for painting lol

You can get rods for cheaper. I bought a 5.56, .308 & 6.5 rods. I figured in the long run spending $70 is worth it to save me from destroying a $1000 can.

I love it. The color is a touch more "yellow" in person as the name would suggest, but it definitely has a much richer tone to it than any of the Krylon Ive used in the past. I hadnt planned on doing the whole gun, and was just going to do a light dusting to break up the monotony of the black/FDE, but couldnt contain myself once I saw how it was coming out. Ill post pictures up once I throw my baby poop SOPMOD on.

All done, and now I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with it.  Didn't think that far ahead.

Yeah I've always wanted to use that color but I paint my rifles on a whim so having to order the paint just usually doesn't work for me. However I might be switching my upper receiver out in the near future and if I do it'll be time for a new paint job.

Are Vero Beach marked M4 RAS more sought after than the Titusville ones? What's a fair price for one in 8/10 condition (few nicks on left and right side) Also, what's the going rate for a Colt upper receiver? Still new to the clone life so i'm trying to get a feel for pricing. Thanks in advance.

edited to mention Colt upper receiver is C marked with keyhole forge.

Found one of these surplus larue and aimpoint mag mounts hiding at one of the LGS for a good price. Kinda like it more than the G33. It’s nice being able to pick a mount you like.



Also I put up a extra surplus upper kit minus the BCG and 4 prong in the EE. Gonna use those parts doing a block 1 mk18 build and decided I didn’t need two.

Sweet.
I'm in the same boat with liking Aimpoint magnifiers a tad bit more aswell. There have been a handful of times I'll chuck the G33 in a case or in the back of the truck and the Elevation/Windage knob will be tweaked out of center.
It makes sense now, why you'll sometimes see surplus'ed G33s with missing turrets or Orings stacked on the turrets. I wish Eotech would have kept the slicked down adjustments like their G23 Magnifiers.

What’s the general consensus on mk18’s, eotech or ELCAN w/Docter optic?

Either, both are great optics.  It all depends on what the guns purpose is.

I did swap someone on here my EXPS3-0 in a deal, I believe it had a 2017 date. Can't remember, but it had slight delamination. Nothing major and I'm sure EOTech's customer service would be spot on in taking care of it.

That being said, I have a friend who just ordered an overpriced "amazon special" EXPS3-0 in tan, late 2020 date, and it's fine. Same with my EXPS3-2.

With a relatively recent date you should be fine. 2012 552 I acquired in EE is pretty flawless in terms of the optics. Pretty sure it's either hit or miss with EOTech, but obviously, way more hits than misses; problems are relatively rare and not as common as the internet says they are.

It'll stay mismatched, just a tan/brown camo on the lower will better suit it for cloning purposes.
