I built an upper with 20" barrel, KAC FF RAS, KAC low profile gas block and rail mounted front sight, it was gonna be my second SPR clone (the first one has a PRI tube and front sight, and a USO SN3). When it was all done, I think the barrel sticks out so much it looks strange to me, especially when mated to a collapsable stock, I really should have opted for an 18" barrel.
I'm not really into precision shooting with an AR anyway, after seeing how it looked I decided to go to a 14.5" barrel with a Vortex instead. I already have an ML2, TA11, TA31 and TA01NSN, which optic would you recommend? I didn't care for the SN4 that much (traded it for the SN3).

So are you asking for something with a different flavor for the 14.5 upper? Which optic to put on it out of those you listed? What are you really asking?

Yes, I think... [;)]

hehe, I wanna get another optic for this new upper, all of these optics I listed already have homes to call their own [:)]

hmm...Is the 14.5 w/Vortex a 1/9 twist? Is it already laid out for a flat-top? The way you mention optics sounds like it is. But if it was just a 1/9 twist 14.5 w/Vortex barrel, then I would put it with a C7 upper, you know the ones with brass deflector and forward assist, but A1 sights. Then I would put a TA47R-2 on top, M4 handguards, mate to a lower with a M4 stock on it. No reason to weigh that combo down with anything. Of course, that is just if you asked for [b][i]my opinion[/i][/b] on it. [;)]

Now, did you put the rifle length FF Ras on the 14.5? That would make an interesting rifle... How about an Eotech? Seems well suited to the 14.5" barrel.

bsbg I think it'll look like one of Wes' KAC mid-length FF RAS rifles, but with a shorter barrel. I think highly of the EOTech but don't care for its bulk, and I like some magnification, at least 3.5x, maybe I'll just get another TA31...

How about a Tri-Power.......nah, didn't think so.

Hi Duffy, I just finished two new carbine projects, both with optics you DON'T have. What's your schedule like for this week?

Kisara, I think I'm going to sight in the SN3 and TA31 Saturday at Angeles, wanna join us? [:)] Let me guess, I believe you have an EOTech and a compact ACOG?

No I just hang out here too much [:)]

Shounds like the "new" rifle needs to have either the TA31 or TA11 donut off one of the other rifles and then pick up a Chevron for one of the longer rifles.

The moment my deposit is returned to me from escrow I'm buying one [:d] I went astray and bought an SN4, just because I wanted something different. I should have remembered that experience....another TA31 it is!
