I'm not sure is the second and third ones are old news; I only remember seeing one version of the '16 before. But the SR15 looks HAWT!

Wow...good eye. :blink: When I looked at it, I was pretty excited and didn't pay attention to detail. But that has to be one of the stupidest mistakes VFC has ever made. C'mon VFC. :stupid:

Guys chill out, you can see it's a 15 not a 16 because of the agressive bend at the front of the numeral in question. Or so at least it appears to me in the picture.

 

I think I might actullay get this if I can sell my current home made SR15.

Well considering the price, you'd expect them to get those details right.... But then again, the real SR-15 IWS doesn't have any trades on the upper, so a can of krylon/duracoat/alumahyde/whathave you should fix thet.... Lets hope they didn't crew up the lower's engraving too...... That definitely looks like SR-16.... Either way, having the lettinging engraved into the upper makes it wrong. I am dissapointed VFC :( Well that makes me happy, now my SR-15 is more correct than the rest and is still unique :P

 

ON a side note, pinned mag catch is kewl :)

It's definately a 16, look at the left hand border of the pic second from the bottom of each link. I'm not fussed either way, it looks lovely , nothing Krylon won't fix.

I think its safer to say that until a picture is taken thats not low resolution (thus allowing a good zooming) and not taken at a rediculously tight perspective its all a bit of speculation. Im not going to state its either, but I dont think VFC would overlook that. Supposing it IS a 16, maybe VFC sent a copy to WGC for pictures using the sr16 receiver because they didnt have their 15 receivers done yet. Just a thought.

Look in the description, its says word for word...."SR16 M4 Receiver".

Hadnt noticed that. Interesting. Wonder why they chose to do that. Im not a guru all things m4 variant. uscmcorps, where are you to answer this question?

The SR15 and SR16 are both real guns. 5 denotes semi-automatic, the 6 fully-automatic, so you really only see SR15s in civilian circles. Technically having a full auto lower receiver would make it an "SR-16," the the distinction is moot since KAC stamps the name on the upper, not the lower. If VFC were actually concerned regarding copyright infringement, they would not have a included such authentic replication of the markings, including that huge, fat KAC logo on the receiver.

Maybe a typo? If not, I suggest you goto the KAC website at http://www.knightarmco.com/, mousing over the "Weapon Systems" tab and clicking on "NEW SR-15 E3 IWS."

Whoops... Yeah, typo... I meant SR-16 E3 IWS lol

 

Oh, and if you look at the SR-15 IWS, you'll see that there is nothing engraved on the upper, like there is with the SR-16..... On the ISW, the model is stamped on the right side of the lower(the side without the big KAC logo)
