    Hmm, those are a bit of a mixed blessing. While aftermarket parts are always nice, I really don't like white trademarks as a rule, especially on firearms that would not normally have painted trades. There's somethieng very non-militarty about bright white writing all over your receiver! Now if these people would get off of their combined arses and make an M16A1 and M16A2 receiver I'd be all over that! Seriously, the Recoil shock platform is the best out there, it sucks that you're stuck with ultra modern M4's!

    Yes, the 14.5" barrel is correct, sorry I was mentioning it in response to the poster above that mentioned 16" barrels. If you look at the pics of the lower receiver on ehobby you can see it is Marked M16A2... and it has an A2 upper. *edit* It also has the later reinforced buttstock, though I'm not sure when that was introduced.

    The problem with the G&P "M653" is that it has an A2 receiver, and a 14.5" barrel, which is technically an M723. Not really a problem, but G&P seem to be a bit confused about Colt's naming conventions. All A2 based weapons have a model 7xx number, much like the A1 based systems have a 6xx number, so the presence of an A2 lower means it definately aint a 653 I still want one though! The image above actually has an A1 style upper, but I have seen 723s with both styles.

    SHWEL, though I don't normally like modern stuff, that is really quite beautiful. Retrained and tasteful, kudos!

    There was a really nice guide posted on here a few weeks ago that covers the technique: http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic/195808-how-to-get-the-afghan-and-back-look/ Yeah, the rifle was definately inspired by black hawk down, though I've wanted an M727 since I saw those Discovery Channel documentries on the Navy SEALS in the late 90's ('The Silent Option', 'Direct Action' and 'In Harms Way'). It's probably not that easy to explain without pictures, I took the normal SOPMOD/SOCOM upper receiver, milled off the rail section and then mounted the carry handle half of an M16A2 upper receiver too it. This was all reinforced with as many steel pins going from one half to the other as I could fit. After plenty of filling and fettling it looks very presentable now. It's a lot of work, and you end up with a carry handle that's about 1mm higher than it should be (well within the range of adjustment for the front sight luckily).

    I spoke about the plans for my SOCOM months ago in this thread and finally got around to taking some pics today. M727 - TM Sopmod with M16A2 carry handle grafted onto the TM upper receiver, CAR-15 grips and M16A2 era sliding stock. She needs a first generation surefire and an Aimpoint 3000 to complete the setup. Best gun I've ever owned, hands down... pretty unique too (for now anyway, while theres little in the way of aftermarket receivers). The markings on the lower should really read either M16A2, but it's as close as I can get without getting into serious custom work.

    Yes, both will be as ridgid as eachother. The ridgidity comes from the barrel, there's no flex with or without the RIS.

    Nothing special, just a bog standard TM M9.

    That's a thing of beauty Drake.

    I think that pretty much comes with the territory. I've got a few completely redundant carbines now that I love too much to get rid of, but never get used due to the Socom being so much better. Hell, I'm even forcing myself to leave it at home next weekend to give my M14 a chance!

    Utterly beautiful Ruger KK. Is that the KJW one or the Maruzen?

    You need √2 x total capacity. Which in your case is √2 (1.414) x 1300mah = 1838mah On a 300mah charger this means your charge should take 6.1 hours for a totally flat battery. (1838 ÷ 300 = 6.1) Hope this helps.

    That's a crazy price! I notice they are now "out of stock". So I guess they were either clearance items or it was a mistake.

    I'm with Chef, I've not got the tool... it's fiddly but do-able. Redwolf have a video showing this method on youtube. I can't say I've ever 'needed' to shower someone with 120 rounds, but until you've done it I don't think you can fully appreciate how amusing it is. It's a daft weapon no doubt, but it's a daft game really!
