Does anybody have any good photos of the Diemaco C8FTHB or "Special Forces Weapon" carbine? I'm hoping Kevin_B or somebody else can help me out. Also, what is the difference between the two carbines? Is it just the modular hand guards (that I assume are Knights RAS) on the "Special Forces Weapon"? I really don't see any differences, other than that.

This is off Diemaco's website:[url]http://www.diemaco.com/smallarmslocker.htm[/url] Special Forces Weapon [img]http://www.diemaco.com/images/sal-sfw.gif[/img] Special Forces Support Weapon [img]http://www.diemaco.com/images/sal-sfsw.gif[/img] KevinB Does probably have better pictures available. LS

The C8FTHB still retains the 14.5" bbl but is thick and has a incredibly stupid weight on it to mount the M203A1 - since Diemaco did not suscribe to the M4 bbl profile The SFW has a 16" bbl for the MV issues etc with the 14.5 - More and more users were requesting this configuration [img]http://photos.ar15.com/WS_Content/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=10925[/img] [img]http://photos.ar15.com/WS_Content/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=10927[/img]

Kevin, thanks for the photos. How does the HK AG36 compare with the M203? It certianly looks lighter.

It looks like the one the lads from Hereford got.

Ariel - correct... Troy - the Diemaco M203 mount is the worse possible design I have 0 experience firing the AG36 It seems from handling to be a better platform - but in truth the KAC AGL I found much better to handle.
