I'm thinking about buying an Olympic Arms K16 w/ FIRSH handguard on it. I'm going to take the A2 buttstock off and add a 5 position tac. stock. I''ll probably add a red dot scope, and front/rear folding iron sights as backups.

Anyone have a gun like this? Can you post pics?

I'm going with the short bull barrel because it should be realitivly light...and very accurate.

What do you think..good/bad idea?

I've found the K16 for as little as $619 on the net....NEW.

I've got a bull barrel (18") on one of mine. It is mainly for stationary varmint hunting as it is quite heavy with all the stuff on it. I wouldn't want to lug it around the woods much.

not somthing you normally see in the same sentence.


imho the bull barrel would be way to heavy to lug around

Is this close to what you are talking about?

My view on a couple of things. The PCR16/K16 is not meant to be a lightweight weapon. It is a short, but heavy little beast. If you are looking for lighter weight, get the Hbar, or similar SS barreled weapon to give you similar results.

While you might have found a low price tag, you are going to spend a lot more to build it into what you are actually looking for. Why not buy a SS barreled carbine (without a carry handle) to begin with? You will have similar results, but with a lighter and cheaper over all finished product.

+1 Not very 'tactical'

What would you guys suggest for an HBAR barreled carbine w/ flat top upper?

Thanks for all of the advise.

The Colt 6721, and then you will need a stick...to beat back all the chicks that will want you for having such a cool gun.
