Is my Warcomp 3p acceptable or should I just get the normal 3p until funds allow for the 4 prong?

So who is rocking a fully painted CQBR but has the rail still FDE? I think I’m going to turn my 300BLK into a CQBR.

Also anyone know what color cerakote is used on the RC?

The 3 prong is pretty acceptable as a substitute for the 4 prong. So Id say switch if you weren't planning on the 4 prong, but since you are saving, put that money towards getting the 4 prong quicker. Of course unless it will drive you crazy, which those things sometimes do for me.

Thanks for the reply guys. I will just return/exchange it for the 3p

I need to find a weekend to drink a few and spray my lower. I just know it would never come out as nice as some on here.
Is step one always to get enough liquid courage?

Less is more. Just spray lightly and let it wear.

That’s the plan. I just can’t decide if I want to do the lower and stock(Black sopmod) or upper and lower along with the stock. Definitely know that I do not want to do the fde rail.

The only ones that do that are mostly the ones that are afraid to paint, and secondary, the ones that simply replaced a receiver since the paint job.

Problem with a half paint is you do it, then realise you hate it cause its only half painted, then you finally paint the upper and they don't match right.

I say just get it over with, spray the whole thing. Maybe take off the optic if you want to but that's about it

again, this.

looks crazy to me when an upper or lower is painted and the other half isnt, or if the two are completely mismatched paint jobs lol.

either paint it all or dont.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with not doing your rail (if it’s FDE).

Paint everything but the rail. The exposed DD FDE always looks better on a painted rig.

What I was saying on the less is more is that you don’t want to cake it on there. Just slightly dust it until you get what you want.

The attached photo is the CQBRs normal lower. The painted lower has a binary in it and I put it on there to have some fun. To each their own though.

my thoughts exactly. thought of CD when I found it. usually see old school m4's set up like that. not too often do you come across a cqbr set up like that.

The baffle wear is uneven with a 3p. Back in the day when we couldn't get 4 prongs we had an SF armorer post pics of their baffle wear and members (I think AR-Ryan may have been one of them) posted the same pics used with a SF3P. Obviously the exhaust ports don't match up on the 3P and it showed in the pics

This is pretty much current - darkening up pretty quickly.

Yeah, with the 3P two ports mostly line up and the third lands in the middle between the ports.



That's one of the reasons I wanted a 4P besides just correctness - it's really what the RC was designed for. No idea if there is any difference in wear or performance 3P vs. 4P, but I figured if I wasn't going to run a muzzle brake, I should at least have the right flash hider that aligns with the ports. Well, that and... cause 4 prong :D.

Best paint jobs come from not giving a fuck and over thinking it. Get a little "fuck it" in your system and lay down some light passes until what you like appears.

I like my mis-matched, nothing is painted the same, setup.

The lower is actually for my M4 clone and it didn't have paint. I was just to cheap and lazy to build and SBR 2 lowers.

@Combat_Diver

Somewhat related question, might have asked you before but I can't remember.

Do you have any idea what the service life on a suppressed 10.3 barrel is? Was there any round interval they got rebarreled or just when they wouldn't group anymore? Thanks for any info.

Lots of variables involved, don't know of anyone that keeps their suppressor on all the time. Generally they call me if the gun won't group anymore or I stop by and gauge all their guns like I'm doing now on the road (ie barrel erosion gauge). I do try and put on new bolts at 6,000 rds. Barrels can last longer up to 3x the amount.

I do remember those pics. I know the ports don't line up with the mouse holes on a 3p, but I thought mouse holes were more of a way to relieve back pressure as the bullet exits. If that is the case, then I wouldn't think it would be too much different. I'll have to look back to see if there are any pics of dissected rc's. I would almost venture to say the mouse holes/ ports would be less eroded with a 3p as the gasses aren't directed at the holes. Unless they are, just in an off way, then I could see more erosion. Other than the blast baffle not looking symmetrical with a 4p, I'd be curious to see how the rest of the baffles look in comparison.

eta-obviously a brake is best for erosion. I would almost venture to believe the military went with the 4p over the 3p for its flash hiding benefits. I could be wrong. Just tryin to think about it from other angles. I remember the ports in the blast baffle/ first few are intended to help decrease back pressure. So With that line of thought, the holes matching up with a 4p would just be a nice feature and not neccassarily more beneficial. I really don't know though. What say the baffle scholars?

eta- I just visualized how ports work to decrease back pressure, and now I can understand how the 4p would actually be an aid with the 4 ports matching. I was visualizing it all wrong when I first started this line of thought.
