    Thumbs up What Would Stoner Do?

    I ran across this series of videos on YouTube called "What Would Stoner Do?" where a couple of (IMO) insightful guys with a lot of experience performed a thought experiment, and then brought it all the way to fruition.

    I agree with many of their conclusions. What are your thoughts?

    Personally, I canít stand to watch or listen to them.

    Funny story...I randomly ran across one of the WWSD segments (the one about the Cav Arms / GWACS receiver with Karl & Ian sitting on the couch) a couple of years ago, before I'd "discovered" Forgotten Weapons & InRangeTV. I thought it was cool that a couple of gay dudes were doing weapon reviews. (Don't anyone get all PC on me, I'm not saying gay people can't review weapons. I just thought it was an interesting dynamic between the two of them).

    Now that I'm up to speed & aware of Karl & Ian, I don't get that vibe from them any more. I found the series to be informative, and appreciate that they actually try stuff out IRL, doing honest head-to-head comparisons of different pieces of kit for the rifles. I've had a Cav Arms CAV-15 receiver for about 15 years now, that I originally bought to make into a .45 using an Olympic arms upper & grease gun mags. Still have the Hahn buffer & mag well adaptor but never bought the .45 upper.

    After rewatching the 2017 WWSD, and then seeing the WWSD 2020 promo where they announced the project will be revisited and KE Arms will be making Gen3 receivers, I went ahead & built up my own WWSD rifle to see how it performed. I deviated slightly in that I used a MI free float handguard and an Armaspec captured buffer spring, as well as a Radian Raptor LT charging handle, Radian Talon safety and a LaRue MBT2S trigger, due to cost & having everything on hand already. Minus optics, the complete rifle is only 5 pounds, 2 ounces. Definitely looking forward to seeing what, if any, different conclusions or upgrades they arrive at this time, and also getting one of the updated Gen 3 receivers.
