That goes back to the purchased uppers though, right? I’m not aware of STS getting handed URGI kits if they have one of their JTACs attached to an ODA.

There are some pics of AFSOC STS guys with 14.5” URGI’s floating around.  

From the pics I’ve seen of the 10.3’s those are the RQS PJ’s and probably unit purchased.  RQS’s don’t fall under AFSOC.

I asked a question about these lowers on the SOPMOD thread, but specific to this thread: did Crane ever use/repurpose ‘M4 Carbine’ marked lowers that originally had the burst fire selection?

I have found info saying they used M16A1 lowers and M4A1 Carbine lowers (both originally with full-auto fire selection), but didn’t find any using the M4 Carbine lowers.

Kind of bummed - I think I wasted the CLW Crane MK18 Mod 0 sticker on the wrong lower…

I realize it won’t be correct, regardless. It’s a PSA lower, not a Colt, and it’s a sticker, not an engraving, but I’d like to get as close as possible. I do have another PSA M4A1 Carbine (Auto-marked) lower I could use, but I’d have to sacrifice that cool Crane sticker

Ended up pulling the riser, just wasn't working out as good as I had liked.  Threw it under my eotech on another rifle though.  Decided to go with a Viper on top of the Elcan, sorry no docter. I'm really liking it so far.

Every Mk18 Mod 0 that I've seen used either a M16A1 (few) or M4A1 (majority) lowers.  SOF primarily didn't use the M4 Carbine (burst) but issued M4A1s (auto).  I do know USJFKSWC used M4s for Robin Sage and few in the Group Support Battalions.  Of those 99% were Colts and 1% FN replacements (fielded under first M4A1 contract).

Yeah, I figured as much. Oh well, the decal was only $12

On a different note, I remembered seeing this regarding CQBR clones (below).

I actually have a couple of PSA M16A2 marked lowers (also w/burst FC). Would one of those work with a CQBR? Or am I misunderstanding the “A2 profile Lower” listed on the Clone Rifles website?

I run a spreadsheet for all my builds. My MK18 is built off a LE6933 and totals 6950. I need to sell off the 11.5 upper since I built the 10.3 from the ground up, so let’s call it $6150.  After glancing at mine looks like I forgot my sling and mounts
