    Mine came in the mail today and so far it seems to be good kit, but it's going to receive an excellent trial by fire in the AZ desert in a few weeks, and I'll be able to give an opinion based on it's utility there.

    Yes please do, I’m looking to get a bipod for the wife’s AR and possibly replace the one on my PA10 with ones and some first hand feedback would be great.

    Only recommendation for a bipod I can give is Harris folders. Been using them in Govt service since 90' and have one that I switch back in forth off my 20" M16A4 clone and H&R 340 .3o8 (Mauser 98 action).

    Seen here on my Mk13 .300 Win Mag in Iraq 05-06'

    The upper is good but you went a little light on the lower

    It’s just really good camo! The lower will be for a different upper.

    B69915F5-6FBB-495F-A81E-32ABF56F5854.jpeg Just finished my first AR build. Nothing super fancy but I’ll be upgrading it over time. Wanted to try and keep it fairly high speed/low drag for my budget. I’m already plotting my next build. It’s easy to see why this becomes an addiction.

    2018 Colt SOCOM...14.5 pinned and welded birdcage, KAC rail, ambi selector, side mounted sling swivel, etc...note the new CR colt serial number, I had heard they stopped using the LE numbers and that is confirmed...all new Colt lowers start with CR, and contrary to the internet rumors, CR does not stand for Civilian Rifle, it stands for Colt Rifle (I called Colt and asked). Also noticed no more C marks...everything has a cage number now.
    Minus Spot Report...it did not come with the full selection of rail covers that come with the KAC, although they did include the KAC broom handle.

    Not the best photo guy...

    While it’s not a DD rail, you can be the proud owner of a KAC RAS MRE-B

    https://thoroughbredarmco.com/colle...as-mre-model-b-rail-front-filler-tube-21166-2


    Pic thread. Built this last week from an Aero M4E1 builders set with 15” R-One mlok rail (the attachment method is way cool), 16” BA 223 Wylde premium fluted barrel w/ 1:8 twist, CMC 2.5lb flat trigger, Steiner PX4i optic, Radian Raptor CH, Griffin Armament M2 buis, and not pictured but now equipped is an Arisaka mlok finger stop and a Streamlight in one of their offset mounts. @Will yalls shipping is ridiculously fast. I mean Midway’s Nitro express has nothing on yall

    Regular BCM Gunfighter Mod 0

    The SOPMODs have weight reduction cuts under the cheek pads

    It was probably the most difficult stock I’ve ever put on a rifle. It’s solid though

    I actually bought a SOCOM upper with the DD FDE cutout rail off the EE a few weeks ago. Just need to go get my LE6920s to repurpose one of the lowers to the upper then I'll take some pics.

    Finished my 6.5 creedmoor PA-10. Not bad for $600 bones total.

    This one seems a little less precision-y and more sporty than your others.

    Should try some 2 gun or carbine matches with it!

    I would see it on SF rifles with S&B short dots in the early GWOT...that’s where I first became acquainted with them

    My latest: Colt AR15A4, replacing the Colt HBAR I sold 30 years ago and regretted it ever since. Nothing fancy, just a basic issue AR but with the prancing pony on the magazine well.
