Anyone know what rail system is on the Marine Corps's new M-16 A4?

I belive its the M5 KAC RAS (standard non-free floating full length) Calvin

Nice Duffy Post some details Bro, I'm getting the parts together to do damn near the exact same thing. :)

Ha, I'm working on the same thing. Looks good Duffy. Does anyone have any good pics of the Marines in Iraq with this setup? Isn't this setup an M16A4 with KAC RAS and ACOG for the Squad Designated Marksman??

Back then TA31s were impossible to find so I got the TA11, but I'm happy enough with it that I'm going to forego the TA31. I thought I'd settled for the TA11 but it's almost everything the TA31 is, and has features I find important to me, such as a much longer eye relief. The difference between 3.5x and 4x is so little, the larger size of the TA11 also comes with a longer fiber optic tube (dunno if that helps gather more ambient light) and slightly larger objective lens. Falcata now that TA31 is more available this shouldn't be hard. I had to wait 3 weeks to get the RAS M5 from Wes at [url]mstn.biz[/url](emailed him every day, lol sorry Wes) because of the war, things have probably calmed down at KAC. Also got the ARMS 19S, sling, and KAC 300M BUIS from him. I don't know if USMC folks use the 300M or 600M BUIS...

Oh yeah, I read that they had to buy their own and wanted to do away with the carry handle. Wish Uncle Sam could use my tax money to buy some for them.

Like this? [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=5891[/img] Actually, it's just a TA31, not an "F"

Nice Rifle bsbg. I'm almost there myself, got my KAC M5 today plus gov profile upper. All I need now is my optics and BUIS. BTW Impact Guns had the M5 RAS fairly cheap and even though back ordered I got mine within a week. Jeff
