    Holy shit dude! You've got some imagination. :)

    I like the glossy white & black scheme. It's just a matter of which parts to make which color. When it's time to do the LH side-charger then I might get that creative.

    Yeah lol was just trying to think of things I've never seen. Your list sounded good for the black/white.


    How about a bloody spinal column pmag? Like this but add blood, slightly more realistic spine.

    I think I'll do the sliding part of the stock in white and the release lever in black. I'm also thinking that anything black needs cerakoted for uniformity except for the BCG, Barrel, grip. Not sure if it makes any sense to do the ACOG. Either way, I'm feeling pretty satisfied with this plan now.

    Thinking I need to match the belt-fed upper with a different lower. The pins are just too damn tight. I don't mind it taking a little bit of effort, but not so much that I need to pound them out with something.

    Instead of the BFSIII trigger I'm thinking of using the Echo with it instead. This is because the Echo design eliminates the possibility of hammer follow and they've (Fostech) redesigned the piece that required a modified bolt carrier. Now all you need is a full-auto carrier (which I'm pretty sure the upper has because other dudes have matched them with an Echo).

    I messed around with changing out the pins to see if that would make a difference. It didn't. The rear pin needs hammered in/out. It's not so easy to just slap it on lowers to check fit because it hits on the bolt catch. With the Ares upper it needs a special catch. All things considered, I might just deal with the pin. Fuck it. Don't know yet then what to do with the Echo trigger. Might still swap it out with the BFSIII.

    I did decide to pull the rear iron sight. With the eye relief I felt the Elcan was sitting a little too far forward. Conveniently enough, the scope has a tunnel running beneath the lenses that lines up with the front sight so there's really not much need for the rear. I like it better now.

    Also added the extended bolt catch. I prefer to release the bolt that way rather than with the charging handle.

    Leaning towards swapping out the standard birdcage with a Lantac Dragon.

    Sand the pin down a bit, if you fuck it up standard ones are like $5.

    Or maybe this might work

    If you want max recoil reduction

    Thanks. I'll do some sanding on the pin and see where that gets me. Just as soon as I get motivated. Not only is it a turn off the way that Battle Arms pin sticks out, it's so tight I'd probably still need to pound on it.

    Funny you posted this chart because after looking around at the cost of the Lantacs it occurred to me that I had one of the Precision Armament M4-72's in the parts box. Hopefully it's as good with muzzle rise as the Dragon. Definitely gonna be a big step up over the birdcage either way.

    Finished my 14.5 midlength build (first build)

    14.5 inch faxon Gunner barrel
    Strike industries J comp
    SLR 13.7 helix handguard
    DS arms upper
    2a aranment titanium gas block
    Fail zero NIB bolt carrier group
    Aero gen 2 lower
    POF 3.5 lb flat blade trigger
    Daniel defense pistol grip
    Jp buffer spring
    Carbine buffer
    Kns anti rotation pins
    Strike industries enhanced lower parts kit
    Magpul bad lever
    Fortis hammer charging handle

    Pretty happy with it. I got it to shoot sub moa the other day with IMI 69 grain razor core. Started building a pistol build with some spares and birthday gifts. All it needs is a barrel, gas block, muzzle device and handguard now.

    Where do you get those parts separate? Radian doesn't seem to offer them separately on the website.

    I've always liked that handguard and wanted one.

    Also nice screen name, I'm a big inflames fan.

    They are working on releasing a stripped upper/handguard

    @modena1983

    I'll elaborate more on how.

    Before switching to radian, axts had some extra lowers they needed to unload before the switch. They didn't sell the lowers separately at the time but this was an exception. They sold 10 lowers to blown deadline. I purchased from them.

    I talked to the owner of radian and was able to get the stripped upper handguard as a special purchase because I got one of those lowers. However they wouldn't give me their proprietary barrel nut & wrench. I had to send all the upper parts to them to get installed.

    I like those hand guards and have been looking at various ones for my pistol.

    So far looking at geissele mk8 and KRG Mrex. Leaning toward the 11 inch mrex since I will be running a 10.3 inch ballistic advantage ba hanson barrel.

    What muzzle device you plan on using?

    I'm a fan of the MK8.

    SLR has a lot of cool options imo.

    Knights Armament urx 4 mlok looks somewhat similar as well.
