I've noted that the #38S-EX is 14" long and would thus extend out to create a sizeable rail; would it be stable enough to at least make a top rail comparable to that on the S.I.R. civilian version?

I am unsure about an M4 or AR15 but I did it on my ZM LR-300. I had to fabricate a brace for the front to prevent it from flexing though. Brace was a modified NC STAR soft aluminum picatinny short rail that broke on me. Modified it using a dremel tool. I hear rumors that the #38 S-EX won't fit over a set of M4 handguards (double heat shield) but will on standard carbine HGs.

Love that stock!!!! I can't see the brace you talked about. Is it on the end of the receiver or is it just not in place for the picture?

Thanks about the stock. I got the idea and help from THEO, he modified an ACE stock for his LR-300 and then told everybody else how to do it! Great guy! hat is what I love about the LR-300, NO BUTTSTOCK SPRING & nice fold away buttstock. The brace on the front of the rail: [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/pd52d828bbb45cf9df173341329914bb1/fbd31dbc.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/p5af895cbd0bae1990257448a639ff18e/fbd31dbe.jpg[/img] Edited to add: There is a small screw hole on the front of the rail to hold a "bush breaker" to keep objects from getting under the rail & handguard. You should be able to modify something to give the rail rigidity. I had to use aluminum, as the brace rides atop a sheetmetal covering for the op-rod spring (in lieu of buttstock spring) and get very hot, so plastic would not be feasible. Maybe on an AR-15, one could use some rigid plastic similar to handguard material to make a brace with...?

The 38 S-EX comes with a metal brace that fits into the hole on the standard AR handguard. At least mine did.

It's actually a brush guard... the little metal thingy that extends down off the front of the #38 super extended.
