I don't know if it's my computer or the website of a combo of both, but I've had a few double taps in the recent past and this is my first triple.

See below.

Why do the rail covers look like their "turned upward" on the ends?

How is it possible to double tap? I have a 30 second counter between posts.

I have no idea. I hit SUBMIT once and it went really slow and three identical posts came up.

Monty,



Thanks for getting up the pics Brother. Your blaster looks awesome, I've been very impressed with the (3) LaRue ACOG mounts that I ordered a few months back and took the plunge and sent one of my uppers off to Grant at www.gandrtactical.com to have the new LaRue 7.0 installed on my new SWAT blaster.


Have you had a chance to take it out and launch some lead through it?



Take care and stay safe Brother

It's funny, when I shoulder it, the tans seem to blend together. Have to ask the next guy I point it at how they look!

The TD is the TD Battlegrip (the pistol grip)


Thanks for all the positive comments guys. I really like this carbine.

No.... TD is the term Grant coined for Tactical Dillo. And yeah I'm sure the guy on the business end of your blaster won't care your tan doesn't all match

Sorry, I'm dumb.

The TD was inside.

Very nice! Is the stock and handguards Coyotee Brown or are they supposed to be tan? (they look very similar to my Coyote Brown furnature).
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 1:50:44 PM EST
The Vltor stock is what they call Flat Dark Earth.

The MagPul XT rail covers are called coyote.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 6:10:41 PM EST
Ahhh, who cares if the colors are an exact match. I sure where you are located Monty, it get's the job done....and in the end, that is all that really matters!!!

I'm still very impressed, simple, very functional, yet very sexy....But how does she perform?



Off the subject: Monty if you talk to Mike E. in the next day or two tell him I sent him out a couple dept patches that he wanted and a couple other related odds and ends.



Take care and stay safe,


Jeff

Jeff,

Work is crazy-go-nuts. Hoping to shoot Thursday. If not it will be Sunday. When I say shoot, I mean really wring this thing out.

I'll relay that info to Mike.

I notice the lens cover fits behind the BUIS in the down position but will it open and close with the BUIS on or does it get in the way when opening/closing?

It catches on my BUIS just a bit. When I flip it open, I just give it a little downward push with my finger and it slides down in front of the BUIS.

It's so quick to do, I don't notice it.

Glad to hear that. I appreciate your reply. BTW, I'll add a +1 to the nice carbine comments.

Hmmm......I mounted the Larue/Aimpoint using the forward end two notches on the Pic rail. The flip up lens covers don't interfere with the Larue BUIS at all, then. They just flip straight down on the rail. At first I had the Aimpoint mounted in the same position as yours, but I disliked the interference between the covers and BUIS. The Larue mount overhangs the front receiver just a tiny bit, when utilizing the front two notches, but there is still so much contact surface, I surely don't see a problem.

US flag patches made in Vietnam.......no thanks.


There is way too many people making them here to buy something from BHI.
Link Posted: 9/1/2004 5:04:46 PM EST
Very Nice!!!

I will soon have an upper exactly like that one based on a LMT upper, and I'm going with all the Larue gear (BUIS, forearm, Aimpoint Mount) and the gas buster (Wes at MSTN is working his magic). This will find a home on my preban PWA Lower which is getting a Sully stock to replace the colapsable (I hate it) and a Chip McCormick Trigger Pack. Should be ready to rock by next week if Francis dosen't wipe Jacksonville off the face of the earth....

We will be awaiting the pics and range reports.

Why do the rail covers look like their "turned upward" on the ends?

I know that question was asked a full 2 weeks ago, but I've not had much time on the PC...

On my Daniel Defense forend with XT panels, I noticed the same thing. The way the XT panels are made, there's a "cross" piece to fit into the slots on each end. Well, there's no slot on the end nearest the receiver, so the piece for the slot was sitting on a flat making it stick up. I just took a sharp knife, used a little patience, and cut that underside piece away. Now my XT panels lay flat.

I really like my XT panels... they're very flat, and they look and feel good, but I'd prefer them to be plastic with a more secure attachment personally.

Monty,


Thanks for the pics and info. I was so impressed with the LaRue 7.0 that I ended up ordering a second LaRue 7.0
