    My weapon in Iraq had a Surefire front grip, an ACOG or a Holosight depending on where I was, a Redi-mag that holds an extra mag on the weapon right next to th primary and is released with the same button, and an IZLID 424P IR Pointer. I also maintained the bracket on the top of the barrel for my PVS-14 to mount. The 424P is used to point at targets so tac aircraft flying with NVGs can see where I'm looking. It's also boresighted to the weapon to act as an aiming device at night under NVGs.
    My weapon in Afghanistan did have the KNight's suppressor, ACOG, and PEQ-2 with the front grip assembly.

    So Havoc, could you "paint" a target for airstrikes with the IZLID 424P? or is that not yet possible in such a small size?

    No, the 424 is just an IR pointer, visible with night vision. The laser target designators are MUCH too big to be weapons mounted. I'll be glad when they do get that small though! It'll take a lot of load off me!

    My M-4 along with Saddam's P.O.S.

    This pic is courtesy of the Iraqi Government....Downtown Baghdad April 2003. My M-4.....ACOG Reflex site with amber triangle, ganster grip on rail interface, AN-PEQ, and standard surefire light source...nothing fancy but it works... Notice the rubber bands on ganster grip....great for gripping when you are sweaty....We use standard "Skateboard" tape on buttstock and along pistol grip for better control. Moving with a weapon is not easy....Skateboard tape prevents sliding on vest...works GREAT.. Notice 100 Mile an hour tape holding PEQ on rail....it is Ghetto but it works.....I love me little M-4.......

    Gold plated P.O.S. taken from main palace basement.....nuff said.

    Serpent,

    Stay safe Bud!

    Mutt, yes it is an Orlite, and yes it is a homemade magpull. One thing I did not mention was on my weapon, visible just forward of the stock are two lithium batteries secured with 100MPH tape (quick-release) They are for my light source...the light is bright but when the batteries go they go fast..nice to have spares ready to go....Take Care....More pics every so often.

    OUT

    Not exactly a M4 but what the hell I run this place



    It's bushmaster AR15 with a 16inch upper, A.R.M.S. SIR, and nifty foregrip/bi-pod combo.

    Small question,
    where did/do batteries for the elcetronics go on the rifle before they were built into the newer style stocks?

    The batteries actually go in the electronics. The stocks hold spare batteries. Before this feature was built into stocks, I would assume that the operators kept them wherever they could find a handy spot for them. Like in the Serpent63's pic where he has them taped to the side of the stock.

    Sorry about that, I just took a new picture with my M4gery and added my Glock 19 and 26 with the EVIL 31rd. magazine.

    Pardon my ignorance but can anybody tell me why they put tapes on the bottom of the magazine? Is it for easy grip?

    thanks

    Tape is placed at the bottom of a magazine to make a "handle" for quick removal from a pouch or what have you. It would also help you remove the mag if it happens to stick in the weapon.

    Is that an HSGI chest rig you got there?

    You like it?
    Great pic!

    This is my M4. I just got it put together yesterday. (That's where all the money went from my 1:6 sales.)

    MVSpartan, You are correct, that's a HSGI Denali. I really dug it over there because it has a couple of big map pockets behind the mag pouches that let me carry all my close air support type items. And there was plenty of room left over in the rest of the rig. The only trouble I had with the chest harness was trying to go over the top of some walls... I'd end up looking like the fat kid in gym class until I learned to lift up on it with one hand as I went up and over.

    I also noticed this absent from the post. This is the laser Bruce Willis had on his weapon in tears of the sun.
