I [i] assume[/i] they could be a pistol [b]on a pistol lower with no stock[/b].... And yes they are hot as hell and I want one.... Roughly number 6 on my top ten things to buy...

They were issued to security teams in the Department of Energy, hence DOE upper. The security teams worked at nuclear facilities and traveled with nuclear material shipments, commonly in unmarked vehicles, thus needing a compact weapon that was easily concealable. Fun to shoot and more user friendly (easier and quicker to reload) than the mp5 family and more accurate than the uzis.

I'd hit it.....errr, nevermind.[:D] I especially like the use of the old school M16 upper in the 1st pic. Nice, simple fool proof A1 sights, & no forward assist (does the 9mm bolt even have FA notches?). No SBR in NY? [:(] Or is that just an aversion to the red tape & paperwork hassle?

No FwdAsst. on 9mm's, no locking lugs.

IIRC didn't these uppers have built in suppressors? (that's why they were so fat).

Definately HOT! I'd love to build something like that in .45 ACP. [jump]

[img]http://www.boomspeed.com/kisara/HotRotating.gif[/img] I know Troy will like this pic: [img]http://www.boomspeed.com/kisara/Kisara633.jpg[/img] You never get to see what's behind those handguards, so here's a sneak peek [img]http://www.boomspeed.com/kisara/Kisara633cmpcb.jpg[/img] Barrel is marked: C MP CB Mine came with an Anchor Harvey upper. I see the top pic was from Martin Marrieta. I wanted to buy that one too from EE but was short on cash at the time.

Wave - Like Troy said, the 633 uppers went primarily to the DOE, but I've heard rumours the DEA also bought some. I had one and really liked it, but decided to sell it to help finance one of my 1919's. The handguards (from the M231 port firing weapon) are somewhat brittle and prone to cracking. Unfortunately, they're also pretty hard to find. I liked it much better than the 10.25" 635 upper, but the price tag on the 633's is a bit too much IMHO.

What is the fold down front sight for?

Hey, Wave, as long as you sell any AR lowers you might own, you're good to go! You can just sit and look at the upper all day. [;)]

Ok Troy then I'm thinking of another Upper. Didn't the DOE, or was it the DEA, have an upper with integral sound supressor - the front sight was sticking up from the middle of the handguards? I think that is the one I was thinking of.

Wave, you need to drive up to the Manchester Firing Line in NH. I'm pretty sure it was a DOE 9mm verson of a Colt subgun I played with last year. Very nice shooter, controllable. Many other FA guns as well. WELL worth the trip! Yep, it WAS a DOE subgun...[url]www.gunsnh.com[/url]. Check out the list of MG rentals[:P]

Blikbok, Yes that is the one I was thinking of. Many thanks!
