I'm real happy with how this project turned out. Just waiting on the Surefire SCOUT to finish it off.

Looks nice. How do like the LaRue BUIS? Solid mount? Right height for cowitness?

The LaRue BUIS is AWESOME. Co-witnesses perfectly through the bottom 1/3rd of the Aimpoint. Hell for stout too! This sight could take real pounding by the looks of it. The adjustble throw lever insures a perfect fit for any rail.

I may pop for an OD Vltor. Although I prefer the M93 Magpul which I have on one of my other M4 carbines. I just wish the Magpul OD color matched the TangoDown. THAT would be perfect! Richard, are you listening? How about an industry standard Olive Drab?

That CX looks super sweet!

I think I am finally going to have to build that Colt lightweight upper and use one of these on it.

Sexy! The MRF's are really starting to grow on me...
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 4:54:13 AM EDT
Very nice......and the Magpul M93 will look awesome on that gun even if the color match is not exact

Nice sancho! I'm just finishing up my Troy MRF-CX carbine too
Link Posted: 8/23/2004 10:22:25 PM EDT
That is a nice build Sancho! I'm thinking this will take a bite into RAS-MRE sales.

I'll say it again that's one sexy carbine!

BTW, I wonder what it would take to bring the bottom rail section all the way out just like the top portion. I understand it'll make the bayo lug useless but the extra rail space at 6 o'clock would be worth it to me.

I would look like a mini MRE, I know I'd definitely get one!

First you would need to get a hold of an MRF-MX lower rail section. Troy Ind. does not keep a parts supply on hand as all parts have been going to new production. They are in the process of creating a parts inventory to comply with government contract provisions (I didn't ask if they had the contract yet, or if this was part of the CQB kit that MRF is currently submitted for). So this might be a ways off.

Second you would need to cut off the bottom of the handguard cap and shave the bayonet lug. You may also have to shave the sling point if that contacts the lower rail panel, but I believe it should clear.

Once those two things are accomplished, you could easily use the MRF-MX lower rail panel. I agree that it would be a great setup. When Troy Ind. starts to have a parts inventory I'll likely purchase an MRF-MX lower rail and make the modifications to my MRF-CX equiped rifle.

Corey,

Thanks for the info! Yes that would be a kick ass setup. Make sure you post pics when you get one done!
