My bad.  It won’t seat all the way.  I tried a 6.8 barrel and had the same issue.

No Sir.  11.5” that I had on a slick side receiver.   The other barrel I tried is new.  6.8 barrel.

I’ve experienced this before and found after I mortar them in and then put rounds through it they loosen up. I’d also lube it up.

For those using barrels converted to MRP.  D. Wilson recommends the SLR low profile gas block, what other low profile blocks are you using?  I'm curious what others will clear such as Geissele, or DD/Badger Mk12.  If the SLR didnt have the three cuts on the side, I'd be happy.

I just picked up an MRP barrel that was converted. The previous owner stated he used both a BCM lo-pro gas block as well an Aero Precision adjustable lo-pro gas block. This was run in an MLR rifle length chassis.

It’s a real tight fit. I’d go with whatever he recommends but also YOLO
Link Posted: 1/15/2021 9:46:22 PM EST
I had the same issue with it being a tight fit. I put a little oil on outside of where the barrel fits the receiver, gave it a little more nudging and it went in. Didn’t damage anything. I’ll definitely take the tightness of it.

I have a 13.9 inch criterion barrel that was converted by D wilson.   Just cross pinned a Griffin block without any issues.  Fits really well underneath the rail. (.625 gas block journal.)

The .750 Griffin block is on the list of want I want to use.  It’s a Mk12 style and  that’s the feedback I was looking for.  I’ve got a SOCOM clone URG-I /Geissele Mk16 rail; same gas block clearance issues; side by side, the MLC and Mk16 are just about identical.  My project barrel should arrive today, then immediately go out to D Wilson

I finally got it all situated. It definitely took some effort.

I called LMT as well just to make sure I was going to F anything up.

The real question there is, are the external dimensions of the .750 gas block the same as the .625?  I'm not sure.

Wife says I got a package from a Mr D. Wilson waiting on me

Poor timing to get into a new caliber these days but Wolf is still making it and eventually the market will chillax.

Or I'm totally fucked on imported cheap 6.5G ammo.



pic thread

As a side note, I sold this rifle a few years ago.... if one of you fine gents happens to own it, I'd be interested in talking to you about it.

Beautiful heavy Recce.

On a side note for ammunition, I’m not horrible as far as stock. But I feel a bit anemic, and the 7.6 to Realm. I’ve never tried any M 80 ball through these rifles. What’s currently a fan of 175 grain and 168 grain In federal gold metal match. Additionally M118 LR..... But holy foook is it scarce and almost $3 a round right now. Crazy. I am usually privileged in the Avenue for sourcing, but the crisis is so bad I’ve temporarily had all doorways, but one, closed. That Avenue is 175 grain and 168 grain Black Hills. Hopefully it is still 1moa or better.

So wish I would have bought more bulk 7.62 at the end of 2019....Soooo many great deals then.

Looks great. How are you liking your RG3? Badger Ordnance is possibly on Deck for my incoming optic. I love my two scalarworks mounts, but the Badger seems to be the new hotness.

I haven’t really used it yet so not much of an opinion on the optic. I’ll let ya know

Awesome builds you guys! Keep it up!

But hey does anyone have any idea what LMT has coming down the pike?

Joe mentions a few things are coming in the future and even hints at a new or maybe updated upper receiver in this recent q&a live stream about 30 mins in.

Looks like a larger diameter MLOK chassis.

Note the bottom of the rail @ 29:57 is about even with the bottom of the lug area where the barrel retention bolts go through.

The current MLOK rail bottom is above the lug area where the barrel retention bolts go through.

I would assume the sides are proportionally larger as well.

@gastonglock21s
@steviej309

Good eye fellas!

I also just noticed the section where the locking screws are located, where the barrel extension sits within, appears to be redesigned as well. The qd socket is slightly relocated which confirms the change.

Thx for sharing that tfb interview @steviej309

So what we know thus far coming to market is the EDF reference rifle with its redesigned trigger group, updated adjustable gb/14.3” barrel, the Estonian piston MWS, that high tech pistol grip and possibly a revamped mlok rail system.

LMT’s on fire🔥

I think I've seen one MWS conversion but I can't remember the details about it.  It might've been a 14.5" sold in the EE?

Hard to pin the details really.

Just shaved down some mlok screws to see if the barrel will pull with accessories attached. It will if it’s the last section on the end. Otherwise, it’s not the screws it’s hanging up on, it’s the little mlok nut. Anyone find a way to make this work? Trying to use railscales and other shit and still swap barrels in the field

I like it so far. Read about the issues some guys had running it on a 10.5 so thats why decided on the 11.5. . I'm gonna run it again offhand later this week to get a better feel for it but overall I like it.

I had the same problem using railscales. Did it work for any of the last mlok sections once you shaved it down? ( I.e.3,6,9 o'clock). I saw some people just bought shorter screws

So after playing with it more, it’s only getting hung up on the mlok nuts at 6 o’clock position. So any hand stop or whatever mounted there won’t allow the barrel to pull even with the screws shaved down all the way. I’ll just run a rubberized panel at 12 and the railscales at 3 and 9, and just pull the rubber panel out to remove the barrel. Way less effort than having to detach everything that’s mounted.
