AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Same question as SteevoLS.

 

I had it in my hands in a shop once. Very small, but not too small, not so heavy (even had the feeling t was lighter than a KAC PDW).

These are just my initial impressions, but I hope they prove useful:

  • Overall build quality is excellent. I haven't found any loose fasteners and there is a minimal amount of wobble between the upper and lower receiver assemblies. The receiver pins are both the captive type, so no screws.
  • There is a little play between LMT stock and the stock tube, but that is also to be expected.
  • All three QD points are compatible with Daniel Defense and Midway Industries sling swivels (there's one on either side of the lower receiver and at the front of the hand stop).
  • The battery for the LMT stock has yet to arrive so I can't describe its balance and weight accurately, but using a DD sling swivel mount as a hanging point, the center of gravity is at the T7 position (stock fully retracted).
  • The gun is exceedingly light compared to the rest of the rifles I own at 5lb 3.3oz. I'm 6'2" with a lanky build and I find it to be very pointable, with the stock extended out the its 3rd position.
  • The included high capacity magazine is lighter than both my G&P medium capacity and TM standard magazines. Also, the magwell fit is pretty snug with the VFC and G&P magazine, with neither being able to drop free. The TM magazine dropped free regardless which release was used.
  • All controls (bolt release, selector switch, and magazine release) are ambidextrous and functional. The selector switch locks positively into position, though there is a little play between right and left selectors.
  • My only complaint is the use of a 600m rear sight. KAC's product literature show the SR-635 with a 300m rear sight, which makes sense for the range that the weapon was designed for. I have a spare KAC 300m-type rear sight that I will swap in.

Feel free to ask any more questions if you have them. I plan on subjecting the SR-635 to the "Afghanistan and back" treatment.

Apologies for the crappy pics in advance. Also, here is my Chinese 553 that I painted to look like a real one. I'm quite proud of it:

It was originally almost all "gold". I had to paint the battery hood tan and the "inside" (?) black.

I have a question for all of you m4 modifiers. I cracked the metal body on my classic army CQB R and need to replace it. I was looking at a G&P body because, as I understand it, they are very good. Am I going to have problems getting ther RIS onto the G&P Body?

It depends on what kind of RIS it is. I'm not familiar with your particular model. If it is a one-piece, and especially if it uses a proprietary barrel nut, they you would definitely have problems. But I'm guessing that this is a two-piece, and that it may well use the standard delta-ring-style nut.

 

G&P receiver threads are different, so at the very least you would need a G&P barrel nut--cheap enough.

 

I'm also assuming that the rails fit into a "real-steel"-style delta ring (rather than the different airsoft style used in older TMs and JGs and ICSs, among others).

is the CA cqbr RIS not just a drop in KAC replica? i think all youll need is the G&P delta ring assembly to fit your G&P receiver, although the only problem i can see is the the CA RIS will sit lower or higher than the G&P receiver RIS, as G&P is closer to Real Steel specs than CA.

Bear in mind however, I've purchased a couple of after-market G&P branded delta ring assemblies in the past (i.e. including the barrel nut) and the nuts themselves have always been normal TM spec, so I'm not sure how you'd go about actually getting hold of a nut that'll fit the G&P upper receiver threads.

 

E-mail G&P direcetly perhaps? Not sure how they are for responding directly to consumers.

That's odd. By TM spec you mean the metric thread size, right?, not the older non-real-steel-style delta assembly that TM used to use.

 

I bought a G&P delta ring set (nut, spring, delta) off eHobbyAsia and the nut was definitely imperial.

Yeah I'm not sure how to explain it to be honest. Not to teach any egg sucking, but here's the exact product I've purchased a couple of times before:

I've bought these from WGC and eHobby before, possibly 1-2 other retailers as well. I've used them on multiple TM SOPMOD series EBBs, G&P WOCs, an AGM GBB M4, the 'Action' AK to M4 front adapter kit and my 6 year old Classic Army 'M15'. I've also tested/fitted a few different things on to those guns themselves, including an Element 12" Novekse rail and another King Arms barrel nut.

Because the imperial thread is slightly bigger diameter, I believe it will fit on to quite a number of receiver threads. The real problem is the other way round, when you go to fit a metric barrel nut on to a G&P receiver.

My RIS is the standard CA rail that came with the M15A4 CQB. So it sounds like the worst case scenario is I just need to pick up a delta ring if it's off sized. Not bad. Thanks all for the feedback!
