Yup, gonna have to throw my mreb and colt upper together.  Hopefully before the weekend is over but my schedule is pretty full.  Thanks for the inspiration.  Dont worry I'm going Eotech and NT4 so it won't be exactly the same.....

Anyone know somebody who makes the gangster grip mounts for the surefire 6p flashlights.  I would like to pick one up for a replica of carbine I used.  Can't seem to find my old one.

A former Badger Ord employee had the rings made off an original example, but it's not looking like another run will be happening anytime. Still had to chop a mount and grip for it too. I can ask around and see, I might know a place that would run some more. I don't think I'd mind having mine taken apart to do it if it's helping someone who actually had one back in the day.

There are others making them on facebook groups as well... One person was taking the KAC bipod mount and using that as a base.

I am super happy to have found this thread and I'd like to ask a question(s) about what I was issued my first deployment(s).

It was an A2 stock but with a quad-rail, ACOG and 20" barrel. I believe it had a fixed (A2?) sight up front and some kind of metal flip up (nicely made) in back.

That was Nov of 2001.

Second trip was the top one similar to what @UsubM posted. It started off as another A2 stock but they changed it to a collapsible during my day off one week. This was 2003, and it had a DPMS barrel that I found odd, I wasnt an AR guy then (not much more now obviously) but I vividly recall the EoTech would "blank-out" while firing it. Something about the batteries if I recall correctly.

Anyhoo, I'd kinda like to clone one or both but I dont know the lingo of what I'm trying to describe. I was vehicle maintenance for convoys back then if that helps.

Thanks!

Speaking of TA-31s, how is the ACOG donut reticle for anyone who's used it? Seems like a similar concept to the AUG reticle.

The low power ACOGs don't seem to get as much love either. Is it a cost thing compared to an Aimpoint, or just that it's neither fish nor fowl?

A few more replicas of my service weapons.

This rifle was inspired by the early GWOT SFOD assaulters carbine that used the KAC MRE, this is my take on an old concept.

Colt OEM-1

Barrel cut to 14.5, reprofiled to the proper contour, cerakote Sig Grey to try and match a Park’d finish, Gas Port unchanged.

PRI Reproduction wheeled FSB, crossbolt version.

Surefire Warcomp pinned.

Daniel Defense M4 FSP 12.0, expertly refinished in an older shade of DD FDE by @ankratz, thanks man.

B5 FDE Gripstop.

YHM .5” riser rail.

EOTECH XPS-2 FDE.

KAC 2-600.

Brownells Retro Full Chrome M-16 BCG.

PRI Gas Buster.

Colt Ambi Safety.

ALG ACT Trigger.

LMT SOPMOD, LMT 6 Position Extension.

SpringCo Blue with an H2.

Still need a sling and light but it’s pretty much done.

Definitely hit up ankratz for your FDE cerokote needs, this thing is awesome, pictures don’t always tell the tale.

Dude! Super rad build, very nice!!!

How do you like the Sig Gray? Was it close to what you were looking for?
I just picked up a pint to do some experimenting with mimicking older gray/anodizing looks.

The Sig Grey is pretty nice, it’s matches a very dark parkerized shade of grey.

Supposedly Sig was looking to match that shade of grey when they had this color created, it is very nice and was exactly what I wanted.

Thanks again for your work coating this rail.

Not arguing at all. RO723, RO727s and such were after the m16a2 and we all know we took m16a2s to both Iraq and Afghanistan. Early days of Afghanistan saw some of the carry handle type carbines and my first trip to Iraq in 04 I swear I saw an Acog mounted on top of a A2 carbine at Abu Ghraib.

Navy EOD (who are/were the EOD that supported SOF, regardless of branch) was still using 727s in 2001, when I was deployed to Kosovo... Still saw 723s in the hands of Navy (non SOF) then as well.

ETA- One of those guys in one of the pics is Navy EOD. We were on the same "mission" in Kosovo. He did so bad at the range trying to zero, that the team I worked for ceremoniously issued him the shotgun during our morning meeting the next day.

Commo man in the lower right has an EOTEC on a goose neck carrying handle mount.  May a URC 101 in the ruck. I think they are members of a National Guard SF unit.

I did not think that guy had a gooseneck.  I thought he had a RAS.  The radio was a 117F. I know him.
