my "M4" carbines are almost complete. still deciding on optics. i am thinking about an M2 for the ARMS gun and a ACOG (TA01NSN or TA31) for the Knights gun. i still have not ruled out EOTech - i was looking at that 552E. the fact that i am designating the ARMS gun as my CQB weapon kind of rules out EOTech for it, unless i throw co-witnessing out the window. i guess many are opting for the TA31 since YOU CAN'T GET THEM ANYWHERE!! (thanks to NEW-ARGUY and the FDCC) anyway, a TA01NSN will sort of keep the Knight's gun in the proper "SOPMOD uniform", once i ditch the #38 and pick up a KAC 600M rear sight. Wes, i'll be contacting ya'!! anyway, i rambling now...here they are:


Knight's "M4":
Colt green label lower
Colt "original" 4-pos telestock
Colt M4 marked upper receiver
Colt 14.5" bbl with Phantom permanently attached
ARMS #38 sleeve
KAC FF RAS
KAC forward grip
SPECOPS Mamba Sling

ARMS "M4":
Colt 6551 lower (blue label)
Colt "new" 4-pos telestock
Colt M4 upper receiver
Colt 14.5" bbl with Phantom permanently attached and PRI flip front sight
ARMS #45M
Surefire M900A RD with IR Bezel (like i'll be using that!)
Blackhawk Dieter CQD Sling
KAC telestock sling adapter

that is all

I have a similar setup on my preban Colt Sporter. It also has SIR #45 and SureFire M900A. I also added a VLTOR buttstock and Laser Devices OTAL. I have an EOTech 511 on top of my SIR and yep, it does not co-witness because the EOTech sits up too high. But oh well, with my VLTOR stock, I can carry spare batteries for my EOTech and SureFire.

Very nice, Redwulf!

thanks CnC, i appreciate that. Marine, yeah i'm thinking of replacing the telestock on my Knights gun with a VLTOR stock. i'm thinking i might like the cheekweld on it better than the original TS. i was also thinking of getting one of those LD OTAL's. i liked the rationale behind getting one in a post by Ducati650. using one in conjunction with the TA01NSN sort of rounds out the weapon as patrol and CQC gun - i also think they look cool! kinda PEQ2A-ish!! Frankenstein, you'd better be smiling when you say that! [;D]

NICE! Hey, where do you shoot in VA? PM if you like. Alex

Red- if you were to go w/ the ARMS#50, you'd be able to co witness that EO and keepp the ARMS rail system.

alex, i live in southeastern VA (tidewater area). the only real outdoor range is down in pungo. i shoot at a range in VA Beach. sulaco2, yeah, the bilevel is nice, but i really like the look and finish of the "M" version SIRs. maybe if ARMS comes out with an "M" 50, i'll do the switch. t-fish, nice carbine - looks familiar[:D]! M900A-RD only $475 at [url]mstn.biz[/url]! (maybe wes will cut me a break on some gear for this unsolicited plug[;)]!) and NEW-ARGUY thanks for the frankenstein edit - I CANT STAND THE TERM BLING FRICKIN' BLING!! [beer]

Redwulf, Let me know the next time you head down to Pungo, I'll join you! Marc

Redwulf: Neat guns dude! I have a Colt/Bushmaster M4A2. Thinking of building a second one probably a Bushmaster with the flat-top reciever and some sort of integrated rail system forearm, haven't decided on exactly what yet. I have a couple of questions for you. - Which type of forearm do you perfer the one on the upper gun or the lower one and why? What is the advantage of the forearm on the lower gun vs. the one on the upper gun? - I noticed you have a phantom flash suppressor on there. Is that legal to put on a post-ban M4 with 14.5 inch barrel?

Haha! If it's select-fire then I think it's well past the M4gery and into M4A1 territory! :) Redwulf, when do you guys go to the range? I'd like to meet up with some fellow arfcommers. Alex
