    I'm a little surprised to hear that given it's a little more interesting (to me, anyway). I will probably still keep an eye out if that kit goes on sale again. Anywho...San Antonio did a nice job.

    They did a good job with your laser engraving. Did you get another one done or just re-do/re-ano the last one?

    I was looking at the Recce setup as the non-vented gas blocks suck suppressed, I'm sure you know this too. Ever since I've been shooting my PMM cut down SCAR16 SBR, shooting anything else in the AR world suppressed generally sucks compared to the SCAR. Shooting 14.5/16's seem fun again. Maybe down the road I'll see if Justin can find me a real 416 one, but for now, I might just squirrel away another Brownells lower to be remarked.

    Wait, you mean buy a new, separate lower? That would be crazy. Who would do that? And then if you had some sort of hypothetical second lower, what would you do with it? Make a whole new rifle out of it? Crazy.

    I know you said he poo-poo'ed it before, but from what I've seen on HKPRO, modifying a non-vented gas block seems to be yielding decent results. I'm not sure what the Brownell's gas port size is, but given it's a 16" barrel, I'd guess it's different than a 10.4" OEM barrel, too. But maybe not. I will say that after finding the right spring/buffer combo, mine has been working nicely suppressed or unsuppressed. And it even passed a recent 100-round range test running weak Silver Bear, which made it almost seem like shooting a regular AR.

    Yup. And then this happened last week. Things escalated quickly.

    It will be a bit, as I'm waiting on the barrel. But SEAL Recce is the direction I'm headed, I think. Optic will no doubt be incorrect, but it will look "close."
