What's the model name/number? That fixed rear might work for a Diemaco build.

It works nice for a Diemaco alternative which is why I got it but then I scored an actual Diemaco rear

There's no sig part number, only this item name "REAR-SIGHT-FIXED-AR" $70.

For a Diemaco alternative I've also tried these:

Get a flashlight, don't shoot a family member. The brighter the better, anybody saying there's such a thing as "too bright" and that the reflection will blind you either has walls covered in mirrors or no idea what they're talking about.

Thereís technically a Ďtoo brightí it just doesnít exist in a hand sized light....yet. I could see something like a 3000lumen light being way too bright indoors with white walls if your eyes are dark adjusted/just woke up and the light is setup to go into its brightest mode. But for normal run of the mill lights, no.

Put some ND gel in front of your light. You can always rip it off if you need the extra brightness. Does SF make lens covers maybe you can use that to hold a light blocking filter.

CAV lowers also like one longer hammer pin. Itís the same extended length as the ones that are used in the now fostech magnesium lower. You can get them from fostech and Vseven systems also sells extended hammer pins too. Itís not needed but it looks nicer IMO when the pin head is flush with the receiver.

Dope. I wonder if standard pins just don't sit flush against the outside of the receiver body.

I have spares of the long ones since Iíve been meaning to build up 4 CAVS. I can send you a set to try if a normal pin is shy of the surface.

Why even stay around if KE is doing one? How is KE permitted to even make them? Did they buy the patent? Licensing? Russel being on with KE really makes it seem that they just bought the patent or are licensing from GWACS and GWACS is going to retire.

Don't the pins sit a bit proud? You can usually use the edge of a hard surface like a table top corner or wood post to push the pin out just enough to expose and grab the flanged end.

Oho! Russell Phagan, the man himself!

Congratulations on the official product launch.

I do have a question from Kalifornia, though. Would KE be able to offer service to put a Kydex flapwrap on the grip of the lowers to make buying them less of a pain for those of us in states with bad gun laws?

You should be able to buy a stripped KE-WWSD lower without an upper attached as is just like any other lower from a CA FFL. I would imagine someone would start making kydex wraps for them eventually.

Yeah, but if you receive it into your hands with the wrap already in place, it neatly dodges any questions of.... oh crap. What's the word. I haven't been to calguns in ages..... "constructive possession"? Just because the grip isn't something that you can take off and throw away if you're going featureless.

Haha I guess. I have so much junk I have some manual action uppers so no constructo convitco for me!

So for this size of a job how many mold 'sets' are being made for this first run? Is KE running the injection machines in house or is that being done by a vendor? And what kind of life can you expect out these molds?

My machinist buddy was a mold maker in home country so I like to pick his brain about this stuff.

The CNC trimming sounds good. Would look better than the hand trimming Iíve been doing on MKIIs? I know sinistral has a video on how to hand finish them. Would be cool to see Karl and Ian do a factory tour on some of the processes on the MKIII. I know gun people would eat that up. Just donít let Karl write any jokes his humor is awful.

You can still snag one on the used market if you really wanted one that bad.

I guess towards the end a bunch of WWSD buyers had to contend with the pink and green ones but they might be dumping them in favor of the new MK3

2016 Subaru Legacy.

According to this:

http://www.cars101.com/subaru/legacy/legacy2016.html

your largest dimension horizontal trunk opening is 41.5 inches. Thatís going to be tight for a 42Ē or even longer hard case. You can certainly go in diagonally one end first and it will fit fine but if you keep junk in the trunk like many do it might not be the best choice of case for your vehicle.

Isnít grip angle related to length of pull? They are keeping length of pull the same as MK2. I mean itís probably so subtle and everyone is a little different.

Very curious how magpul would have designed it in the alternate timeline.

16Ē AR is about ~36Ē overall with a not goofy muzzle device. A 18Ē should be just 2Ē more.

If itís pinned and welded then the barrel is probably 14.5 and it 16. Threads are usually 0.5Ē so youíre probably closer to 36Ē overall

I don't think a roller system would reduce recoil tho but the impulse would be different.

Also I think they might need to do a side charge thing anyway since roller locking requires significant effort to unlock manually which might be awkward with a rear charge.

Seems like a lot of extra complexity for a barely marginal benefit. Its not like the PCCs these days are open bolt guns that have first round accuracy issues.

It's not just bragging. In comparing my 9mm CMMG Guard upper with my blowback 9mm upper, the Guard has noticeably less recoil.

The guard has that delayed locking thing right? Is the carrier/buffer also lighter compared to your blowback?
