Stephen, if this has already been answered, my apologies for asking again. Why do you mount the light at the 12 o'clock position on the rail?


It is the only postion that is fully ambi in the use of the light. Not necessarily the activation of the light (although with an X300 that is true too), but with getting the light on target. I found that with the light mounted at any other position on the rail I would splash myself with light when shooting around or over barricades. 1 o'clock and 11 o'clock aren't too bad either. I have found 6 o'clock to be about the worst.

Good point about the light splash. I shot a 7.5inch MSTN 5.56, but it didn't have a light mounted. I liked it, but always wondered where to mount the light. This helps. Thanks.
God, i want one... while WA state has lax gun laws for concealed carry, SBR's and SBS's are a no go. Well, good thing I'm stationed in Kansas ;P.

The only thing that has me dancing is wether to go for 5.56 (availability) or 6.8 (better ballistics on a shorter package). Probably rustle with this issue for a while (got nothing but time over here).

Leave I'm taking my 16 inch LWRC M6A2 out for a run, cant freakin wait. Curious to see how it compares to the Colt M4 (and how the piston feels). That an my kimber will get fed as well.

I realized this past range trip that Thor's Hammer hadn't been out in a while and it also had some changes since the last time I posted photos. So, I put a few mags through it and snapped a couple of photos. Note the UBR stock and that I finally succumbed to peer pressure and add a set of BUIS'.

Stephen- A set of BUIS on your PSD and your vfg looks as though it is starting to creep forward.... What gives? Smile

Still an awesome blaster, where and what pressure switch are you running for the scout?

Very nice blaster, Stephen! I'd love to do a similar rifle in 10.5" but I do hear the 6.8 PSD is a little rock and roller.
