Why do you debate selling it?

Nothing to do with the barrel itself. I’m optic poor at the moment because I sold one Razor to jump on a KAC CQB upper and my other Razor for a KAC QDC can so this 12.5 that is my mini-recce doesn’t have any glass. Plus as much as I like the FCD handguard, I do have a slight preference for 7 sided MLOK rails so if you put those two things together, I’ve debated listing the whole upper. But it handles really well...

Yes. It would not lock back on anything with an A5H2 other than 193 suppressed.  A5H1 it works with al of the above suppressed and unsuppressed..


Maybe I’m wrong and it isn’t the suppressor optimizes barrel? I bought it new unopened and I thought the guy linked to  the specs but I just went and found the post.  He just copied and pasted them  He claimed it to be a .063 gas port and the pasted specs he provided said “optimised for suppressor use” or something like that. So it’s possible he was wrong and I have the .068 gas port. Still love it.

I wish the URX2 were available in a ~9.5" length. That or one that I could have chopped to that length and modified like the first URX 3s were on a mill.

Thanks, loving everything about it.  It's a 14.5 so I barely fall into this category.  Just put a 12.5 together, it's got a T2 in Unity mount on it now.  3X-C in the Unity flip to center mount is all in the mail.  But I'm tempted to move all stuff over from the 14.5 to the 12.5.  Should've tried that before getting the zero on the optic and DBAL perfect.  OOF.

I saw out of stock. I know the wilsons are good but I'm not sure i want a stainless barrel for this build. They do seem to come back in frequently though. I thought about trying a barrel designed for suppressor use. May just end up picking up a cheap 16"er or something and turning it down to 11.3 myself.

Just add the armor tuff option when ordering from Wilson combat.  It’s fantastic.  And the color options are sweet

Only $40

I have a 16” PRI SPR profile barrel that’s marked “PRI 1/8 1/17” under the handguard near the chamber, and “1/8D” near the muzzle. Does that mean it’s a Douglass blank?

How many of you use MOA and how many use MIL? I'm going to join the NX8 gang and I'm trying to decide. I'm used to MOA but mil seems worth learning.

Mil is way easier but they are both just numbers. Good chance most other people are using mil as well and it helps to be on the same page.

I prefer mils and I find the moa reticle too busy given the choice.

3.44 MOA per MIL... .1 mill = about 1/3 MOA... it’s all mental math man...  at the end of the day pick what’s easiest for you to calculate on the fly or is easier for you to understand.  Dope cards are a thing for a reason...  MOA is a tad more precise on the surface but neither are bad

I order my NX8s directly through Nightforce for the military discount. I prefer MOA, but there is always a lead time for each. Last time, MOA was shorter lead time, so that is what I got. Across the board, I am an MOA guy

OOOOOOOO.  That looks like it fixes the only downside I have with the ATACR.

EDIT:  On the other hand it also looks like it pushes the thick stadia lines out further from the center (kinda like the razor 1-10x)....

On my ATACR the horizontal lines only go to 5 before it hits the thick stadia.  On that new reticle it looks like it goes to 10.

About twice as wide of a thin center reticle.
