AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread


Recommended Posts

Hello Folks.
I know it's not the tech forum, but I need AR related help and considering this thread popularity it would be possibly the fastest way.
So here's the thing. I got HAO's 9,3 inch Mk16 some time ago, but it appeared that its barrel nut has too shallow threading, comparing to CC Tac, and after the rail instalation there's a gap between the rail and th receiver.

HAO's RS spec nut is 13,33 mm deep, meanwhile:

What I need to know is what HAO's AEG barrel nut threading depth.
I asked at source but surprisingly they were not that willing to help.
Is any one here able to?

I think what you want is some outer barrel shims/washers.

EDIT: Or maybe not, eyh? You have the opposite problem? Isn't the barrel nut double ended with different spacing on each end for alignment purposes? Or was that the C&C nut... 😐

I used a combination of these to install and align my HAO MK16 rails on my WE build.

Finished my new CQB/R upper.

Based on a GHK V2.

It is using the Airsoft Artisan 3G rail, whch for those who aren't familiar, is a copy of the GG&G 1201 Free Float rail.

Parts list:

  • G&P B5 Flashider (BE249 copy) with custom engraving
  • FMA LA5
  • Element KAC style broom handle
  • Surefire M600B and FM53 FIlter
  • Eotech 552 (Old Gen)
  • ARMS #40L rear BUIS
  • Garmin 101 in LBT pouch
  • H&K 1.25" Sling

This CQB\R rail was mostly used by DEVGRU, and has been spotted between 2005 and 2007ish.

Since Ivan has noted the "old gun" trend going strong.. Does anyone have a source for slim M4/xm177 style handguards in Europe? I'm not really bothered if they are original or replica since its getting fielded. I have checked all of my usual stores and no luck.

Not Europe, but...

Brownells has them for $20, seems like you can buy from Brownells Italia and they ship to Slovenia.

I happen to need two sets so I will probably give both of your suggestions a go - aliexpress option and Brownells, cheers to both.
 

Also be wary of sixmm, from past experience they are not very reliable (inaccurate stock notifications, shipping wrong items, unresponsive, etc.)

I see the carry handle gang is strong in here lately... here's my contribution. Base is an EMG XM177. All that's left is paint (and probably a light on the barrel). I will probably spray her in a similar paint scheme as my old WE Gordy's build. Also, ignore the white ziptie...it will be replaced. I had to cut the black one off to swap the pad onto a better fitting stock and didn't realize I didn't have any more black ties long enough to fit.

Molded a carry handle onto an ICS split upper and picked up an element m500 handguard for a quasi old school SWAT style build. The upper is still in semi-rough form (as you can see towards the rear of the upper receiver). She still needs more smoothing out and finishing, I just ran out of free time and coarse grit sandpaper lol.

VT-based Colt 727 with a bunch of real parts and a hybrid modern/retro light setup.

Very nice.  What light body is that?
