Anyone know if it's possible to convert Mk4 3.5-10x40 TMR Illum M1 turrets to M3?  Also curious if anyone knows when Leupold custom shop will be accepting new requests.  I've done a bunch of searching but unable to find anything definitive.  Everything I was able to find was regarding conversion of M1 to M5, which I'm hoping to  do M3 if all possible.  

Thanks in advance!

Yes, but it supposedly depends on year. If it's a Mark 4 and not a Vari-X III the year thing becomes a moot point I believe.
Just be careful if you send it in and it has an early illumination housing on it. They like to upgrade it to the current slab side type for free, killing a lot of the clone value.

If anyone has a lead on a TAS-1 with the buttstock adapter please let me know.  Just saw one sell on FB for $163, LOL.  My quest for that buttstock adapter is driving me mad but I'm afraid I won't be satisfied until I have one.

Have x24s been seen/used in theater on the H? Got some swapping around to be done here in the upcoming days, and was planning to use my capped turret x24 on the H

I emailed Leupold about a week ago asking about the custom shop and they had no estimated date as to when they'd be taking orders again. I have a Vari-XIII I wanna send in to switch to a more correct reticle and I'm stuck waiting for them to open back up

No 77gr pills to shoot so shot some "cheap" 55gr yesterday. Actually grouped pretty decent at 100yds. However, once I started shooting >400 you could really see the light projectile loose it’s juice and start knuckle balling all over the place.

Finally got my mod 0 work in progress out to the range today.  Once I got the scope dialed in it was dead on.

A quick question regarding the Arms swan engraving. How does one tell the older stuff from the newer stuff? I believe it has something to do with the wing or lack of wing on the engraving?

That's right. Wingless Swan is older.

ETA - Some additional information on that is required. Wings were phased in at different times. The #22 caps for instance got them well before engravings changed.

It's funny when you read the description of that rail cause it specifically says made for carbine or mid length gas systems with a low profile gas block.  MK12 saw that and said, "Hold my beer.".

I tried searching through this thread and Google but no luck. Does anyone know what the correct serial number ranges are for the Colt and GM lowers? Pics of issued lowers would be great

Is there a picture showing wingless versus winged? I keep reading about that and have zero idea what that means

ARMS products have a small engraved outline of a swan on them.  The later version of the swan has a pronounced wing where as the earlier ones don't have a wing.

I can't find my pic.

Thanks, dudes! I'm sitting here looking for a structural difference, and it's just a logo difference.
Link Posted: 1/20/2021 6:35:56 PM EST
The switch to winged 40s comes with the tethered nut. But yeah, just a logo change for the most part.

A little while back, I think I recall someone looking into/talking about custom cutting his foam on the CRA pages. I have since stopped checking in on there, so idk if it was ever done up.
