Maybe not 100% cqbr related, but do Colt waffles have certain marks or distinguishing features to know they are Colt? I have one that came on a Colt but I'm not sure its an actual Colt waffle.

My 6920 from 2012 has a waffle with a 4U486 cage code only.

Edit - on second thought I think I got that stock secondhand after it came w/ that Rogers stock thing.

My waffle has no numbers that I can see and doesn't even have the rectangular boxes where they should be. It also doesnt have the circle imprint on that side. Shape and thickness look the same though. Not a colt?

I haven't weight it, but it is heavy for such a shirt rifle.  That being said, I have been told to grow stronger, lol!

Okay gentlemen, this is my first “post” post so go easy. I’ve drawn upon the magnificent examples of the type seen here and after two months of scouring the EE, reading every page of this thread, and trying to balance my investment with the other responsibilities we all have in life, I’ve reached a point where I’m pretty happy with my first clone build. I know there’s things to change like the trigger guard lower receiver, and pistol brace, but here’s where I’m at.

I started with an Aero pistol lower I bought before such things became verboten in California. It was already fully built so 80% of that build got sold off to help fund this. I purchased a RIS II FSB cutout rail and took it to a local machine shop to get chopped. The ano is a really dark chocolate brown and it was touched up with BW Casey aluminum black. Cost me all of $20 and I’m very happy with the quality.




I procured as many pieces as I could and started to paint. Taped off lenses and such, then sprayed away.



I used the four colors pictured below, starting with the tan over the whole piece, then using an issued mesh laundry bag to spray the Aervoe Field Drab (best color ever) and the flat brown. I then striped it with the olive drab color. I wanted pretty green dominant as I’m in rural Northern California and its hard to justify the Syria-flauge I see a lot of.





Huge shout out to MILSPEC556, who graciously volunteered to help me out, couldn’t have assembled so quick and correctly without ya, bud.




It’s been a hugely satisfying process hunting all these parts down, and my next plans are for a standard power PEQ to sit on top. I welcome any feedback you guys may have.

With a Colt N1, RC, M300 and loaded mag =  9lbs 9 1/4oz
With a SOPMOD, RC, M300 and loaded mag =  10lbs
With a Colt N1, RC, M600 and loaded mag = 9lbs 13 3/8oz

Just add 7.5oz to those numbers for an approximate weight with a PEQ15.

No can do buckeroo. Had to break out a coyote one for the 25, but I did add a black back into the collection. I need to source out some more.

Talking about sopmods, I have begun replacing all of the b5 contract stocks i bought with legit lmt gen 1 black or coyote stocks. coyote obviously costs a lot more, black costs $30 more than the b5 from brownells when hunting for deals in the EE. just scored another nice tan gen juan in the EE yesterday.

i've noticed on the LMT's that the finish is slightly slicker on the outside and the lock up on the buffer tube is better (tighter) than the b5 stocks are. i prefer the no wobble.

For whatever reason I think 1-2 is enough for me. But when it comes to collecting Surefires- you and I are one the same page.

I need way more of those. To start- 1 more pistol light, a couple hand helds and 1-2 rifle lights

I need to get back into buying SF lights again. Want something for the 25, but it's kinda pointless on a rifle that heavy that only gets shot on a bipod and won't be used for HD.

That's what I'm gong to do, too. I just can't bring myself to pay 2-4X for a silencer that's heavier, longer and louder than modern solutions. That's just silly. And this is coming from someone whose putting my clone upper on a full auto lower that's over an order of magnitude more expensive than the NT4/RC... but maybe I'm just screwed up in the head though.

I'm probably going to use an adapter so I can use another mount rather than YHM mount. I'm pretty sure I can fabricate a Turbo-K Surefire adapter so that I can use surefire mounts.
