  1. Weapons Banter Thread

    Thanks guys, for the info and pics! Obviously any co-witness between Optic and BUIS is better than none, and off-set the step after that. My lack of knowledge on the ELCAN itself is now showing. I was under the "ASSumption" it was a really rugged 1x red dot and not a fixed magnified optic. This is why eye-relief never entered into my equation, I became fixated with the older concept of longer sight radius being superior to shorter. The article did mention the BUIS in question was not liked by the troops and therefore rarely seen; I suppose the fact its actually plastic is the real reason why. The lack of elevation adjustment and shotgun style ghost-ring aperture now make a little more sense though. A.B.S.; are your upper receivers as domestically accurate as the lowers? Curious as to what the actual dimensional differences in flat-top rails are. Unfortunately, the article I was reading mentioned very little in the way of C7's, not that I'm not interested.

    I've been doing some reading regarding the Canadian C8 model differences from the U.S. M4, while there are various nuances that separate the two what really caught my attention was that apparently for the rifles carrying the ELCAN optic; what is the thought process of putting the BUIS in front of the Optic, essentially giving one an AK sight picture as opposed to what we see above, the BUIS behind the Optic?

    Really, even when the Galactic Empire has modified MG42's? Belt fed, I mean rechargeable back-pack powered seems to one up disposable batteries, not only in rate of fire but in power capacity as well.

    For what purpose or enemy, in particular, was the VB6 Monster given a third transformation into battroid for? Given the transformation and placement of its weapons afterward I fail to see any advantage or strategic value in it.
  5. Cap's new shield has a concealed/closed option; he is wearing it in the scenes of the armies charging one another. War Machine seems to be fine, as long as Col. Rhodes is in the suit at least. No sign of Hawkeye/Ronin, yet.

    Personally, I always preferred Children's Palace over TRU; though I never made it to NY for FAO Schwarz. The last few times I had to visit a TRU to look for gift ideas for my nephew I was very disappointed even with half the store being stocked for his age group, toddler. Why do I have a sudden urge to re-watch "The Toy" now?
  7. You are correct. However, you could save some money and just buy the super parts kit instead and save a little unless you want two super siegfried's to display.

    Why would you catch grief/flak for keeping the DD upper; the fading paint? Is there significant play between the receivers; if not what does it really matter as long as it works in its intended roll? I could see an issue if it was a billet upper on a forged lower, that would have a tendency to stand out. If this was a "purist" clone, I could see the hang-up. For me, I simply can't justify the cost difference between a Colt lower and an Anderson lower, both are forged lowers, both are "Mil-spec", both have a horse logo, yet one is almost half the cost of the other. I will accept the difference in cost for completely assembled firearms, buying into history, prestige, superior QC and manufacturing but even that becomes a stretch after a time. In this case you're talking DD which in some eyes and minds is superior to Colt anyway. What Giessele trigger are you using in that? My 20" build has an ALG ACT, first aftermarket trigger and was pleasantly surprised with it.

    Old group shot; previously mentioned 20" far left. Second from left is a Stag model 3 that didn't stay factory; Yankee Hill, Magpul. Third is a Diamond Back that I won in a raffle, it either wears the Boyds Superstock or Slide-fire stock. Far Right was my first build, .300 blackout; Spikes Tactical receivers, Y.H.M. handguard, Magpul grips, stock, B.U.I.S., Nikon Glass and mount. The M&P 10 in the back has a new LuthAR Stock and 15" M-lok handguard now, still sporting Nikon glass and off-set B.U.I.S. and Fab Defense grip/bi-pod. http:// The current dilemma I find myself in, choices, choices. http://

    I'll have to work on that. All are photographed for personal C.Y.A. issues but I haven't uploaded them anywhere as of yet. Certainly won't be as nice as your photos; cheap but effective camera.

    About 30 secs in your question is answered unless I'm hearing the FN Rep wrong. "One or the other; both will cause a malfunction." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB_D5RGDfuY

    Awesome clone, given legal issues! I haven't attempted any clone builds, yet; I always get sidetracked with what else I could build for the money. Was planning an A2 clone, that went sideways and turned into an "updated" version of what an A2 might be today: flat-top upper with detachable carry handle, A.R.M.s gas block/front folding sight, Rock River Arms A2 free float tube with Magpul furniture gutted to fit around it. Presently at a cross roads on current build; 10.5" pistol or just get the stamp and go SBR in .300 blackout. Patience has never been a virtue of mine.

    A quick youtube search would have given you your answer. No, the weapon cannot be double loaded; it would create a double feed if the bolt could even move at all. The magazine well inserts at sharper angle to place the rounds at roughly the same place as the belt would. The whole point behind the M249s is that if belt ammo is expended the LMG is not out of the fight.

    Mikumo and therefore Junna is supposed to stand out from others, hence the lead vocalists. As far as her "drowning" out the rest, that is the show and the studio; from what I've seen from concert footage Junna's voice when joined with the others doesn't overpower but instead lends to the overall harmony that makes the groups foundation. As the lead vocalists we are going to be bound to hear her more or seeming to overpower the others as this is the design, rarely are all 5 singing at once. It isn't until we hear the songs that are designed to highlight the others of the group that she tends to melt into the background on CD/show. The only footage I've seen of their DYRL cover, Junna is emotional prior to the song even beginning and when her solo comes she actually falters; didn't detract from the performance in anyway.

    Was curious as to whether anyone here has purchased DX-9's "seekers" sets yet and how they might compare scale wise to HMR or the Toynami line. Always wanted Roy or Max to shut Starscream up as a kid, since Jetfire couldn't get it done in the show, I'll go ahead and add Dirge to the list as well! Pics, links that show comparable scale much appreciated if you have them/know of them.
