Very nice! What barrel do you have on it and what is the twist of it? I've got my rifle set up pretty much the same and I used my Colt preban 1/7 twist chrome lined barrel. I have a Leupold 6.5-20x40mm scope on top of it and it's a tack driver. Also, is your M5 RAS a free floating or standard? I've got a C-More FF tube on mine, but I'm going to get a M5 in the near future. Great rifle! JD

Hey CJan. FreeFalls original picture was a little dark, but you really need to learn how to use Photo Shop a little better to properly enhance an image. I may be a newbie to ARs, but I know a hell of a lot about digital photography. There is only so much you can do with a low res image like this but this gives you a better idea. Oh, BTW, love the rifle FreeFall but I still don't see a POD-LOC on it. [;)] I have a few of those secret baby be quiet devices around the house but mine must have been made by Hesse as they don't work worth a damn half the time.

Dude, I don't know anything about digital photography but I know that Cjan's "enhancement" lightened it up so we could see it and my untrained eyes like his image better than the one you posted. Give the guy a break, he was only doing us a favor.

Wow. Do you feel better now that you've had your daily affirmation? I don't recall saying that I enhanced that pic for a photo composition contest, I enhanced it because I wanted to get a better look at FreeFall's work. Obviously he put a lot of time and love into that rifle and I wanted to get a better look so I could drool and covet one for myself. You're into digital photography? That's excellent. Now I know who to ask when I have questions about the Nikon D100 that my wife and daughter gave me for Father's Day. A photographer I'm not-I'm just a humble commercial mortgage loan officer.

Are you happy with the scope height and eye relief from those rings? Good cheek weld for you? I'm glad you didn't get a brake and collar for a suppressor you'll never own. Next toy...KAC suppressor?
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 3:13:42 PM EDT
Yea the KAC FH seemed a good choice. The only SPR I saw in Afganistan is just like mine, they(navsof nuff said) were using the knight suppressor. so if its good enough for the seals its good enough for me. I dont think I will be getting a suppressor anytime soon, but when I pin on E-7 (hopefully by xmas) I will start the "suppresor fund" FREE
