Any further info on this pic? I'm curious because of the .40 Glock (FDE mag extension), the Ranger Green MBAV/MAP, and Mk18.   I was told some Glocks in 9 are being issued in Ranger Regiment, mostly for use with suppressors.

75th Rangers training for some kind of media day event (the original set has several civilian photographers there taking pics of the guys training).







The Glocks you see are definitely in .40







I actually dig Glocks alongside the CQBR Block II - makes for a cool package.

And close ups of the Glocks:

Here are mine. Only non-Colt parts on the two rifles (excepting the obvious) are the Noveske stripped lower and LMT bolt catch on the Mod 0. Hopefully I will get my QDSS NT4 in the next couple of months. I need to hit the Mod 0 Block I CQBR clone with some paint when the weather improves.




ETA: The Mod 0 Block I CQBR(?) has a RAS not the RIS.

You sure about the PEQ-2 though? I thought for sure I've seen quite a few in the wild Mod 0s with PEQ-2s.

The only grip on Mod0's were A1, they were surplus M16A1 lowers and we had no lasers of any kind, the Mod0 was used on onboard ship for VBSS.

Murphy and Axe we not using Mk18's, they used CQBR M4A1's, which of course would have A2 grips and used for laser designators. I know it's splitting hairs but the CBQR and Mod0 were used by entirely different personnel for different missions.

Anyone SBR a 6920 SOCOM for the M4A1 markings? Where did you do your engravings? I'm tearing down my non-spec Block II CQBR and want to try and do a super-spec clone when money frees itself up. Would probably pair it with a proper 14.5 PR upper or B2 upper as well someday.

Thanks for the offer of help and tools William, but it is together (the photo above it is the completed weapon)... and is a nail-driver. With the exception of the non-rotating pins it is built to spec with all Colt parts, H2 buffer, extractor upgrade, etc. made it as close as I could get it. Couldn't bring myself to run the KAC vert grip though so I put on a KAC handstop and use that as a small vert grip.

Hey William, thanks for the info, and good point. Is there any functional difference between the two besides the lowers they were put on? Seems like Mod 0s and CQBR block 1s were almost exactly the same parts?

Nope, and yes. I'm pretty sure Crane built the CQBR as well though Augee would be the go to guy for that info. The Mod0 and Mk12 were born of the same parts hence the A1 lowers that were destined for scrap. I've never seen a CQBR in person but handled many a Mod0 on the Erie, CG-70.

The question pertaining to rhs side of a CQBR would be yes they have SAFE SEMI AUTO on both sides, as all M16A2 through M4A1 have. One thing I have noticed though is that they are mostly low serial range, W3XXXXX-W4XXXXX. Perhaps they (and the Block II) are from the original SOPMOD program?

I know my "clone" isn't perfect, but I always thought it was close enough (being that it has a color filled lower).




Anyway, if it was my fault that things went to hell I am sorry.




 
Just one of those unfortunate series of events. Personally I don't think it was all your fault.

Unfortunately I think this will always be an ongoing problem with these types of clones. I totally agree with Augee that some strict definitions and standards need to be set from the get go and in the OP. Otherwise it'll eventually end up just like the other one.

I believe the Ergo grip was also used on Mk18 mod 0s, but I'm not sure.  It is certainly an acceptable part as it is commonly used and easily changed out by the end user.

I think Block I CQBR's used the RIS instead of the RAS found on Mk18's. At least some of them did.

I'm sure Augee or someone else knows the particulars.

I think they both used the RIS, bound to be a mix of them somewhere though.

I could be wrong, but I think the main difference is that the Mk18 Mod 0 is a complete weapon system - it was designed to be a complete rifle.










Where as the CQBR is more of an upper that is an accessory piece (or replacement upper) in the SOPMOD kit - meaning, you've got a 14.5" upper and a 10.3" upper to use with the same lower.




EDIT: Also, like the Mk12, the Mk18 Mod 0 is built on an M16A1 lower - the CQBRs would be M4A1 lower receivers

  I could be wrong, but I think the main difference is that the Mk18 Mod 0 is a complete weapon system - it was designed to be a complete rifle.

Where as the CQBR is more of an upper that is an accessory piece (or replacement upper) in the SOPMOD kit - meaning, you've got a 14.5" upper and a 10.3" upper to use with the same lower.

EDIT: Also, like the Mk12, the Mk18 Mod 0 is built on an M16A1 lower - the CQBRs would be M4A1 lower receivers
 


Pretty much this ^ The Mod0 is afaik only used by the Navy onboard ship, the CQBR is seen with a host of accessories which we did not have when using the Mod0.
A flashlight (M962) and a sling is all I was ever given.

WTH I go off the grid for a weekend and come back to fine my favorite thread nuked!

So who went full retard?


Now that I vented...
What is the "official" threshold for clone worthyness?

I trashed my Wilcox mount cuz I thought it sucked and swapped for a Larue. I didn't want to spend $300 on a 962 light and use a Streamlight. It's a lot brighter than my buddies 961. Which comes in handy when lighting up a distant tree line looking for coyotes. The problem is i use my Mod 0 clone, it's not a "safe queen" or just a "range toy".

My muzzle device is wrong also. I use a YHM can as I've not felt like spending $1500 vs $500 for a can because it has dimples and is "more" correct. The old thread did not step on me because I had the basics.

Where does the new thread stand? Does it have to be 100%, working towards 100%...?

Check • Barrel: 10.3 Colt Government profile with .70 gas port
   Colt 6921 upper chopped to 10.5"
Check • Rail: Knights Armament M4 RAS  
Nope • Muzzle Device: Knights Armament NT4 Flash Hider
         Why is the A2 not listed? Well I run a YHM...
Check • Front Sight: A2 FSP    
Check • Rear Sight: LMT  
Check • Optic: Aimpoint CompM2
Nope • Optic Mount: Wilcox      
        I thought the Wilcox sucked... Tired of using locktight, switched to Larue
Check • Stock: LMT SOPMOD Gen 1 Black
        Not a B5 knockoff
Nope • Grip: A1
        I have A1 and A2 grips but prefer the MOE
Nope • Light: Surefire M952
       Not spending $300 on a M962 running a Streamlight
Nope • Supressor: Knights Armament NT4
       I saved over $1000 and use a YHM not an small amount to me...

Yeah I run the wrong trigger guard also....

How it sits now...


And this was purely a dress up pic


Dang it had an ASAP on it...
