Shoot your rifle with each one, then see what works for you the best.

@Combat_Diver Looking at the background in your pictures, especially the mountains it's actually pretty awesome. If only you were there under better circumstances, I'm sure all you guys think it's a shithole?

Just my 2 cents, but when it's a Tango vertical grip versus an angled one, for me it's always the vertical (Tango, specifically).

It's just an aesthetic thing of mine. Everyone else will be different - but vertical Tango grips are awesome

Would love to ski some of those mountains and there is mountain sheep/goats and snow leopards up there.

I'm going to test fire it tomorrow, so I'll bring both and try.

I have to mess around with my light placement also, my off set mount wasn't working with the front sight. I went back to the regular mount.

I'm used to vertical grips, I never really used the afg. Trying it while dry firing the afg feels weird to me, but it may just be because I've never used one. The tango down just looked a little long with short barrel.

I think you took that the wrong way, I was saying under better circumstances the area has beautiful mountains but regardless I'm sure most guys who served remember it as a shithole. I'm sure if there was a war going on at the Grand Canyon, the people fighting wouldn't give a shit either, I get it.

That's exactly how I took it. Regardless, the entire country (and that part of the world) is a shithole.

Well your comment makes all the sense in the world.

I know now you have the longer Tango - the stubby would've felt (and looked) great (just speaking from a position of... done )

I highly - highly - doubt you won't like it.

Best compromise between the angled stuff and a vertical grip. It just works.

And it looks good on shorter builds.

Anyone who jumped on the Triarc RC cans get the Form 3 transfer part done yet?

Tried calling and emailing with no response.

Only reason Im wondering is they said a couple weeks and the order is over 2 months old now

From what I've seen the DoS MK18s are factory DD MK18 uppers with black ris ii, FN15 full auto lowers, aimpoint Comp M5s, magpul pros, and streamlight protac WMLs. I'll see if I can snag some pics. These are issued to MSGs as well as DoS personnel.

I got them on the phone yesterday, it was not easy. They claimed the ATF is sitting on the paperwork and hasn't approved the transfer from the department they bought them from yet.

So my MK18 is finally coming together but need to decide on an optic.

Those with NV experience chime in, does the Eclan 1-4 without the RDS work well with PVS14? The other idea was a Aimpoint M5 paired with a G33 on Unity Fast mounts, any experience running those with PVS14? Only have an IR light no laser yet.

You're not going to want to use the Elcan for NV. It can work, but it's not great. You would want a RDS on top. If you're going for a clone I'd recommend the EOTech EXPS 3-0 or Aimpoint T2. The M5 is nice, but the T2 looks good on the CQBR.

T2 on Unity mount


T2 on LaRue Mount


EOTech EXPS 3-0

And as long as it didn't smell like a 126 degree porta-shitter 24/7 like J-Bad did in the summer.  Shit river is a real thing.

Any of you guys with Mk 18's get them tuned for suppressor use by Trajectory Arms, or wish you had?
My Mk 18 is in parts, haven't assembled the upper yet. 10.3" Colt barrel.

What's a DEVGRU MK18? I thought the Navy used standard MK18 mod 0/1 and DEVGRU used a 10.4 HK416 for a little while.

Transitional model used by DEVGRU before the 416. Around the 2005ish timeframe. Seems like it's just a standard Navy MK18 with a GG&G 1201 rail and sometimes a BE Meyers 249f flash hider.
