Nice rifle.

Is your PRS stock the pre-production or the production model?

So what's it called? The munyguru mk13 mod 2 baddass edition?
Very very nice man. Extremely nice in fact. I'd take that over a Mk 12 Mod 1.

Talk about reaching out to 600+ yards

Muny, how do you like the Socom lowers? I really like the looks but they are expensive.

Who is SOCOM Diamond? Are they a manufacturer and do they have a website? Sweet Rifle by the way.

Yes to both of your questions but the site is apparently down right now. Brownells also sells their lowers.

looks sweet but heavy as well. What is the weight ?

Very nice looking rifle. Did you refinish the lower?

Who is SOCOM Diamond? Are they a manufacturer

They are a manufacturer but I think they may be closing. They just did a new run of the lowers out of Fortal aluminum which is about equal to 7075 T6 aluminum in strength. I was told by the owner the new run serial numbers start with 1 thousand. I think they sold the new run to someone already. I bought one of the new ones in the white a few weeks ago and had it hard coated by Techplate in CA. I was really happy with the job Techplate did and they got the lower back to me in about 2 1/2 weeks here at Christmas time.

Got a question for you:

I really like the way the rifle looks CONGRATS! I want to have a similar one built myself using a 20" RRA NM flat top rifle.....

but I can't understand why you have so much clearance between your scope and the BUIS. I have a 2x-7x scope in a Larue SPR base that is mounted on my Colt 6721 carbine flat top, and the low profile #40 ARMS BUIS barely clears the scope eyepiece. It actually rubs against the BUIS.

Is the SOCOM reciever built with a higher plane then my Colt that is giving you more clearance?

Very Sweet Weapon, got to LOVE those Diamond Lowers
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 9:55:17 AM EDT
Holy $@#*!!! That is freaking sweet!

I agree we need more pics. You could always send the rifle to me and I could shoot it take them for you.

Yes, I see that you already have the Larue SPR on your 6.8 SPC. That's the clearance I'm looking at in your photo.

Like I said, my ARMS 40Low profile BUIS rubs against the scope objective with that same set up!

EDIT: I checked the various scope manufacturers specs and found that your scope must be of a 39MM eyepiece or smaller, while mine is a 40mm and will rub and make contact. (1.54" vs 1.58") One is well advised to research the eye piece dimensions before buying an expensive scope, and discovering it will not clear the sights when mounted in a Larue. I will only buy Larue.

Nice rifle! I plan on closely following the example.

Damn you.

<----------- Now calling uber-cool tactical retailer to order the Larue mount pictured.

Well, I am a sucker for something that is unique. These are unique! They are forged out of a 7 pound solid piece of aluminum. They are built like a tank. SOCOM says they will withstand being run over by a truck (hopefully I will never know that to be true or un-true!)

I liked the first one so much that I bought another set and built her a sister in 6.8SPC! I will do a seperate thread on this one later.


The pics here show a little more detail on the upper and lower receivers along with the side charging handle upper receiver. The side charger folds forward flush against the receiver when not in use. These are both made by SOCOM Mfg and the fit is excellent. You can get them anodized in red, blue, black or in bare aluminum. I had the finish done myself.
