I am getting ready to buy a new barrel and was debating between a BM 16" M4 Dissy and a 14.5" M4 w vortex. I already have a 20" A3. Does any one on this board own a Dissy and could give me their opinion? Thanks

I used to have one. I liked the way it handled and the fact that your extremities were protected from the hot barrel. I also liked the full length handguards. The only reason I sold it is because I'm fickle like that, but I recently considered cutting a Colt 20" down to 16" or 18".

But...if you are interested in seeing the dissy that Bradd_D used to own, I'm sure I could get its current owner to rustle up some pics

If you want to use irons, go for it. Otherwise there are better things.

Brings a tear to my eye everytime I see you shoot it.

Combat_Jack, I will be using irons to start with, However would eventually get optics probably Eotech. As I said in my post, I already have a Bushy 20" NM. This would be more for defense, tactical matches. If I have to go back to Iraq, Uncle Sam will take care of my needs. So what would you recommend? Thanks

Ghost_Shooter, I would like to see any Pictures you could get. Actually, I would like to get my hands on one and shoulder it to see how it felt before I get one. I chose the M4 Dissy mainly because it makes it lighter. That seemed to be one of the complaints of the original Dissy. Thanks

I don't like the dual gas block of the dissipators. I would prefer a mid length or a rifle w shortened with the gas port opened. Maybe A3 with an LMT BUIS or cut carry handle.
