Other than "C AF" and Armalite, have any other forge codes been seen on a late Mod 0?

So, I’m trying to decide here, I have a original deployment case and the Crane sticker is or has seen far better days. I’m wondering should I leave it as is or replace it with the reproduction I have combing?

A few more, I feel like selling it and focusing all my efforts on the reproduction one I’m dining with Ringers foam,, cleaning rod, bore guide and document's. I have another case I stole the info and then at least I could match the serial numbers and I have the pictures of the original to position and mark correctly.

All I’ve seen on late Mod 0s have been C AF and Diemaco splintered A, although an ArmaLite wouldn’t surprise me given their use with the others.

I did a Diemaco keyhole on my late MOD0. I screwed up though as after I redid it with the Diemaco I came across a NOS raised C AF that was grey verse the newer black, it was marked M4 and had feed ramps but I wasn’t going to tear it down again so now it’s on a s Block 2 that I am turning into a early Block 2.

Negative, so far the only sticker I've made is the same SPR case label that SamsonDogg originally did a while back. I have plans to do the later Mod 0 and Mod 1 case labels when I can get around to it, but I've been up to my eyeballs gluing up foam and filling the rest of the orders I've gotten. And then there's the batch of 5 surplus Mk12 cases I've been working on, and the Mk13 kits.

By the way, just shy of 50 cases have been shipped from the pre-order. Dropped off a lot of them today at UPS so check your tracking info in the morning and it should give you an ETA. Just 18 left to assemble and pack and then I'm totally caught up. I'm getting tested in the morning for the big 'rona though so this week may be slow. Either way, should be all caught up within a week or so. There's still about 15-20 cases available if anyone's still on the fence.

That's it thank you!

As for the ballisticards Lou from Ballistcard Systems finally got back to me and offered these, here's his email to me:
Here’s pics of the two models I have. One is in meters and the other in yds.
Price is $23.95 each includes duplicate back-up card plus $2.50 H&S. The $2.50 covers postage for 1 set or multiple sets if you want to order more than 1 model.
I also have some cards for 308/175 and 308/168 for Federal, Black Hills and I also have for the Military 308/175 M-118 LR ammo.
Thanks, Lou Schwiebert / Ballisticards

Generally a thin flimsy design and also vertically split rings can cause problems with optic internals.

I have a actual deployment case I am thinking about throwing on the EE, but I’m not sure of the value of one? Any ideas? I would also give a heads up here first if I decide to sell. I think I’m going to run the new repro I’m working on thanks to Ringer and all his hard work. This way I can serialize to my my MOD0

Does anyone find that the dope on these cards is accurate for their gun?  It's way off for me with an 18" Douglas and IMI 77gr Razorcore, can't imagine BH Mk 262 is significantly slower.

Correct, I was able to find a batch of new/unissued surplus cases made in 2004. I've filled them with a repro 22CF-30 cleaning rod, repro bore guide, NOS TAS-1 sling with the original buttstock adapter, a new (unfortunately couldn't find old style) Uncle Mike's sling swivel, 3x 20rd Surefeed magazines, a surplus/issued Harris BRM-S, surplus/issued KAC grip, a surplus/issued tan Otis cleaning kit (NSN 1005-01-448-8513), mildot master and a hang tag/manual/log book. Only thing missing is the ballistic card (which I haven't been able to source) and of course a rifle.

They're not available yet but will be released next Sunday at 5p CST.

Looks too even and crisp to be roll-marked. Though I suppose it would be a very fresh stamp that's still nice and sharp.

I asked that question in the thread about the Nodak acquisition in the Retro forum and was told that they weren't going to rollmark because it was so expensive, at least at this point.

That was exactly what spurred my question, but wasn't sure if it was just my vision still adjusting to new prescription or what.  I recall a thread where I believe Mike from Nodak (now CEO of H&R I think) said something about how the tooling would be too expensive to justify it, so that combined with what I'm seeing makes me think laser etched.

As long as they aren't charging a premium price like Intl Mill (Russian Paint), who goes to great lengths to ensure every tiny detail is recreated and you're paying a premium for a crazy high-end reproduction, then I'm sure I'll be a customer.  IE., if price for a stripped lower is similar to or in the ballpark price of a Brownells A1 then I'll def be a customer.  

Pretty cool stuff and will be watching to see what all they come out with.  Maybe a H&R single shot . 410?  LOL. Was given one of those for my 12th birthday, still have it.

Been lurking this thread for long enough that I thought I should contribute something. Started this project about a year and a half ago but most of it got done in the last two months. Getting close, just need to swap out the short collar...and start looking for all of the more obscure earlier versions of parts to get it as close as possible.

He's very difficult to get in touch with, I think I'll make sure he knows what we want and then put him in touch with ringer so that he can stock them on his website. So far I got him to respond to one text message where he confirmed he can sell the single column black hills branded ballisticards but when I asked him about also getting the deltamax and appendix d cards he went silent again. I've already got an email drafted to ringer so I'll talk to him in the bg and see what he wants to do.

Looks awesome!! I received my foam today, and I will tell you, I have a original deployment case and Ringers exceptional quality and attention to detail has made my decision to sell it very easy! His foam compared to the original is spot on and is impossible to see the difference, the feel test is your only way. I am beyond impressed and pleased how exceptional these are! The manual, the case sticker and round count booklet look exactly like the originals. I feel like it’s 2004 again. Now for the complaint and it’s not at Ringer, my case is locked in a storage unit here next to my shop and when I went to open it I don’t have the key, now I have to wait until tomorrow to cut the off to gain access. That’s on me though. Did I mention how excellent everything Ringer did? The bore guide, the cleaning rod, the foam, the booklets, the sticker? It’s all amazing and the quality is beyond superb! I am glad I have the original right now so I can duplicate the hand written markings and placement of the case sticker.
Thanks again!

Thanks for the kind words, glad it seems to be working out for everyone! This was a big project, definitely harder to finish than I thought it would've been at first. I'm happy with the end result though, so I'm glad y'all are too.

To anyone else who's pre-ordered a set of foam and hasn't received tracking info... I expect to have the last batch of cases ship out early next week, and then for anyone who's missed the boat so far, there's a dozen or so sets left if you want to get one.

Also, I'll try to post pics/instructions of this soon, but I did some experimenting with the new production Uncle Mike's sling swivels, the MIM ones that are silvery looking, not the darker gray like the earlier ones. If anyone wants to darken the color up any, they seemed to take pretty well to cold bluing so if you have a set and you want to give it the old school look, it might be worth a try.  The results can be a little splotchy and you have to make sure to follow the directions on the birchwood casey bottle to the T, but depending on preference, it's something to consider. I was thinking about doing it to the sling swivels I'm putting in the surplus cases but I figure for that I'd let the end user decide.

... That's one of the co-founders of KRG, definitely not a "larper". His deployment photos have been posted in here plenty of times before.

I have seen hi-speed video of an LT-104 before, and there's a lot of flexing going on in there. But at the time, it was one of the best options available for getting good eye relief on a flat-top AR upper. I haven't noticed some of the issues I've seen claimed in here with the mounts, nor the Recce rail, but everyone's going to do what they are convinced is right based on their own observations. Meanwhile others are still shooting issued glass in beat up old ARMS rings, on the early SPR guns where the whole setup is basically held in place by the SPR sleeve, and haven't experienced these issues out at 800+.

At the end of the day it's supposed to be a clone thread.

My foam gets delivered today, but won't be able to get it till Saturday. The anticipation is getting to me with people starting to post their cases.
