    Thread: Official Firearm Dope Shiz

    1. 03-18-2012 04:45 AM #1
      So, with every other sub-forum having a dope shiz thread --- why not the OT? Since this thread is about 90% firearms enthusiasts, this'll be a Firearm Dope Shiz thread. Keep privately owned stuff in the official firearms post...and keep this one full of dream guns, prototypes, and one-offs....anything that raises your blood pressure.



      One of the photographers over on LWRC took some nice shots of this custom one-off LWRC rifle. 14.7" barrel, fluted, ambi-lower, custom upper, ODG Cerakote, etc.





      And his custom-coloured M6-IC rifle. I don't own an AR anymore (other than a lower), probably never will, but if I did...LWRC still has the gun porn on lock.





      My own ideal rifle...heaven. AK-105. Proper 12.5" barrel, folding stock --- particularly the massaged model up top. Simply fantastic.



      The things people are doing with combat handguns are simply awesome. I've been following guns like this for a while, and there are a lot of companies making "fighting" handguns.

      PS: If a mod wants to modify the thread title so that it actually says "Firearm" I wouldn't mind Always a bad idea starting threads in the middle of the night...

      Who's doing the work - Mark Housel? I had my PPQ sent off to him, but the work was going to be a lot more than just a Glock worth of work, so I passed for now. I really really wanted it --- but reality set in, when I realized the cost I was putting into something I probably can't make use of just yet...maybe in the future.

      suppressed 9mm AR short barrel... awesome.





      new "strike one" pistol from arsenal arms. intersting design, love the low barrel profile. I like it but I want to hold one and see how close the slide comes to my hand.. hate getting bit.


      MK12 mod 0

      yep, L&M precision, found out he does or did the one source tactical slides...I have a PPQ too i remember asking you on your PPQ thread how to mount an RMR on the tapered PPQ slide, doesn't look like it would work. On the sight issue with the PPQ Im waiting for XS big dots for it, the P99 ones will fit but wont be point of aim. they said they will have a set specific for the PPQ in about 2 months.

      I am torn between the SCAR and the LMT MWS.

      If you ignore the fact that magazines are tough to find for the SCAR-17...from everything I've read, the SCAR is the best 7.62 combat carbine you can buy --- if you're looking for long distance accuracy, perhaps consider the LMT.

      I can't find a decent image of his rifle, but I know the current issue of The Book of the AR15 has a nice article work up. Larue light weight build for fast shooting.



      Don't think I am going to make the line for this rifle. But the regular production version should be ok with me.

      How about the PredatOBR?

      I keep reading good things about all of them, but all online reviews have owner's bias. I wish they would stick to facts and not just pride.

      RE: OBR

      Everything LaRue makes is damn near solid gold...but again, if I was going for a long shooting accurayc based rifle, I'd consider the OBR --- but for a mobile, small carbine (in 7.62x51) I'd still lean SCAR simply based on size/weight etc. I'd prefer the SCAR even more because of its operating system.

      The 14.5 PredatOBR is only 2oz heavier than the SCAR, and the magazines can be interchangeable with other SR-25 platforms. The larue also comes stock with a SS barrel with 1/11.5 twist. They both should handle suppressed the right way as well. With those numbers it probably comes down to personal preference.
      I am holding off for now to see how this product turns out, right now they only have pictures of their lower

      Doug at ATE up in Michigan has been doing some freakin' awesome M&P RMR installs. I don't even want an M&P, but damn these are bad-ass!
