I have never noticed the ringing while shooting. I guess I'm just focusing on other things when I am. Maybe next time I'll keep an ear out for it, hopefully it's not one of those glass shattering events.

-Are government profile barrels still being used with the Non-FSP rails? If so, curious if you’ve seen any barrels supplied by DD with their pinned blocks.

I'm sure that there are some.  Current replacement barrels are FN SOCOM without FSB.  However, most all Blk II have been pulled by USASOC and replaced by the URGI using the DD 14.5" mid length gas barrel.  That is the only DD barrel I've seen.

Finishing up this FSP upper. Needs the correct pressure pad for light and lam. Not sure how I feel about the new SF 600 scout, looks a little too modern IMO but it works great. Went with the TD stubby and used the DD rail covers (made by Ergo) on the bottom, trimmed the extra off. Now to find a EOTech 553/SU-231.

Sorry guys, trying to learn, is this setup consider a M4A1 SOPMOD Block II clone? if not, what would the differences be?

No problem man! Looks good. @pezboytate
Link Posted: 11/3/2020 2:20:01 PM EST


    It looks good so far!

  You’ll need another rail. The DD fde Ris along with a different muzzle device. Either an A2, surefire 3 or 4 prong or a kac for a nt4.

  Also, either a kac rear or matech rear sight. Barrels are usually 14.5 not so much 16inch but you can pin and weld any muzzle device to make it a 16 oaL, as I’m sure you know.

  Lastly, and this is probably going to cause a heated discussion but depending on you, you can either keep your Colt lower or get another Colt with semi correct markings or another clone lower. If you want 100% correct clone markings you can always saltwater etch the markings yourself and have the markings look very close minus the sear pin hole. Either way it’s just an astethics thing. It’s just up to you. Just know that it’ll never be a 100% correct but you can get pretty darn close.

    Either way you have a solid platform to build a clone off of. Good luck!

As others have said, one of the key items in the Block II kit is the Daniel Defense RIS II. They're available from time to time in the EE or from vendors. Keep an eye out for one. Also, check page one for the list of required or optional parts.

I've been trying to find evidence of either black EOTech 553s (SU231) or ECOS ACOGs (SU237) on M4A1 Block IIs, but my Google-fu is weak (or I'm using the wrong keywords). Is there any evidence of either being used on these guns?

What about an Aimpoint CompM2/CompM4? I found one with the former but not the latter (although I've seen some URG-Is with CompM4s).

Seen plenty of compm4s, especially on cqbrs so safe to assume they made there way to the 14.5.


edit: just looked at my pic folders and found plenty. Trex arms insta has some from that one time he trained a team.

Factory colt 14.5 P/W SF MB socom, poverty pony lower with no roll mark, spikes LPK, b5 sopmod, magpul mbus rear. I’ll switch that out as I don’t prefer them. Looking for a T-1/2 micro and a m300/600 scout.

I have a stripped FN F marked upper I want to put on my build which currently has a generic cerro forge upper, but my rifle has a FSP rail and pinned warcomp.

I'm pretty much screwed right? Uppers can't be swapped without removing the FSP and muzzled device?

You should be good. I've never used the FSP version of RIS II but you should be able to maneuver the rail away from the barrel nut far enough that you can unscrew from the receiver. Then pull the barrel out of the old receiver and slip it into the new one and tighten the barrel nut.

You might be able to slide the rail and FSP as far forward as possible and get access to the barrel nut. It would be a PITA but it could work.

I wouldn’t trade my Ecos for an Elcan. Given i don’t have much time behind the Elcan like the Acog but between the weight & reticle I liking the Acog a little better. My opinion might change with more use though.

Colt c “keyhole” marked upper, RIS II(non fsp) with fn cage code socom barrel, would the cqd rail sling mount still be correct?

Also, being that this is a newer block II build, should I be using a cage code upper as opposed to a c “keyhole” upper?

Last question, if using a gen 1 sopmod, what would be the correct qd attachment for the buttstock?

CQD front is issued.

C keyhole is GTG. CAGE haven't been seen in use yet AFAIK.

No QD mount is what is issued. Anything else would be private purchase.

Awesome thank you!

Follow up: I know there is individual preference for sling mounting position, but in an “as issued” condition would the correct position be loop forward(bolt heads on top) or loop rear(bolt heads on bottom)?
