I thought it'd be good for everybody that can to post up some pics of their baby's.
So here's mine to start it off.....
Don't let me be the only one on here, I know there are some mean looking weapons out there.
So let's see 'em. So everybody can see that you can set them up however you want to.
Is there any body out there with a 24" 'wulf????

Updated pic of mine...

There are about 300 rounds above the 'wulf that I loaded while I was listening to the debate. The rest is empty brass, I have no idea how much, I just dumped out a bucket of cleaned brass. Lets just say that I frequent the range where Alexander Arms sometimes does some test-firing

You lucky dog you.....that's a lot of $ saved on brass man.
Have you ever seen one of the 24"models ?
Does anybody have one of those??

I don't recall ever seeing one, but I asked Bill Alexander about how much velocity difference there was between the 16" and the 24". I can't remember exactly how he put it, but he basically said that in the grand scheme of things, they were both very very slow, so he recommended the 16" barrel unless I had some specific need for a little more velocity.

He also *strongly* recommended the brake, but I ignored his advice on that... shows how smart I am, eh?

I am sure the brake does help some, but it would be so much more efficient if it had an expansion chamber, or even just a plate welded on the end with a hole that was only .020" or so over bullet diameter. I am really surprised at what they charge for that brake. But I do appreciate it.........
Link Posted: 10/4/2004 4:55:02 AM EDT
I've seen a couple other breaks that will work with the 'wulf, but personally there too damn noisy! My shootin' buddy has one on his and I swear it's half again as loud as mine! Since I put in the 5.5 oz buffer and Wolff springs, I don't feel I need the brake, but I admit they look sexy!.

As far as posting a pic of my gun... not a chance! After seeing some of the beauties here, my poor ugly duckling would hide in the safe and cry! All the refinements to it are internal...

Come on man, we want a picture of it any way.
If it still looks stock on the outside it doesn't matter.
That way people can see what a stock one looks like too.
I liked mine the way it was but I usually get the bug to do something different to it.

The only lower rail in the pic is the gray part at the forward end of the bottom of the handguard. The black part is just a molded polymer handguard. It's a lot more comfortable in the hand than it looks.

The handguard has some threaded holes in the bottom(metal inserts) so you can attach an ARMs rail to it if you want to add a vert grip or something.

Think you can see it in this pic:



I prefer it without the forward grip.

Yep, they have for as long as I've know about YHM handguards.
They have a 9.2" version and a 9.675" version.

I'm pretty sure those a FF tubes. I thought you were talking about handguards as in you replace them without tools. I could use a FF tube and can install one. But was looking for something cheaper. So right now I'm using non-tapered Cav Arms C6? handguards which I've installed a Falcon Ind. rail and attached my KAC forward grip. I have two sets of YHM 2pc 4 railed handguards for CAR length barrels and I know they just came out with the rifle length ones not to long ago. I don't think they make them yet in midlength.

I have no idea about the non-FF handguards. The YHM FF 4-rail handguards are under $100, if that's not cheap enough, then I don't see how you can even afford ammo

I like that Ron, The coyote looks good.

How's that cmore holding up to the pounding ?

Thanks for the info on the ARMS VTdefender.

Stingrays got the same alostyr fore arm on his that I do but he has a vertical grip (tango down I think) When I shot his wulf it felt like having two arms into it helped spread out the recoil a little.

I'm trying to get him to put up a pic of his on here too.

I got the whole damn thing at a gun show (buffer and spring). The dude that sold it to me said the spring is 10% stiffer than standard, hence the "+10" . All I know is that it does work (but that buffer sure feels heavy)!

Like I said, the enhancements are internal. The scope is a Smith and Wesson electric dot sight. It has held up well under recoil and has kept the zero, which is more than I can say for the ATN reflex sight that used to grace the upper.

Suppose I could have posted some specs on this here beastie...

The lower is a ArmaLite <not Eagle Arms> lower I had laying around I bought new in '98, the stock is an RRA entry stock with a Bushmaster/Choate buttplate extension and DD Burnsed loop running a Colt tungsten 5.5 oz buffer and Wolff springs, the rail is a RRA scout rail, the rings are Warne, and the scope is a Leupold M8 4x33.... She's running great but I'm still going to experiment with heavier buffers and carriers. CavArms is working on an 8 ounce buffer and there's also the Tubb's CWS system which can add 1.54 to 4.05 ounces to the carrier...

www.zediker.com/tubb/images/speedlock/slscws2.html

I was really disappointed however... I'd hoped the 'Rock River Arms' billboard on the side of the scout rail would have been a bit BIGGER... The next time I'm refinishing with Duracoat I know of a certain scout rail that's going to get refinished...

I use 5.5oz DPMS buffers from Brownells www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=5574&title=CAR-15+COUNTERWEIGHT+BUFFER

Dealer price on these is $25, so if you have a buddy with a C&R, have him get it for you.

My bad. I had telestocks on the brain. Sorry

It might let the gas key strike the buffer tube... which would end up breaking your lower receiver.
