    The Soon To Be Great M4 Thread

    Well, I thought PD's idea was a good one, so I figured I'd start it off. I'm no expert on the M4, but I do have the SOPMOD poster pic, so I figured I'd post it and let the experts chime in.

    Oh, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, pukingdog suggested we start an M4 thread so we can have a repository of current info.

    Boz takes up the challenge!

    Good job, this is exactly the kind of stuff!
    Uancanario posted this question on the one-sixth disc page, asking about some M-4 items. rather than turn it into a pissing match over who's the M-4 king, I suggested everyone pony up their M-4 and related knowledge and pics. A bigass M-4 archive, past to future. So jump on, and show some class, or like me, copy and print, this is just the kind of thing that OSW really shines at.

    [edit] - No sooner posted than I see Skyler jumped in with both feet!

    Wow, lots of good stuff on here. That reminds me, I nees to put that equipment request in at work..........

    Seriously there are some very nice weapons systems in this thread. Some I love. Especially the 7.62mm M4 mod (SR-47). Knight's always makes nice stuff. They're nice people too. I've talked to them a couple of times. I've seen people with that Magpul custom stock, but I've never carried one. I never got an opinion on it from them either. It seems like a nice idea as long as it doesn't add too much weight to the weapon. The only problem I could see is all those little crevices filling up with dirt. Looks like it would be a pain to clean. I really like the idea of it storing the power supply for any attachments though.
    I have one of those Surefire front grip assemblies on my rifle right now. It's a nice set up with the ability to be IR or white light. The light can be activated by a grip switch, or an "always on" setting on the power switch. Another neat feature id the navigation lights mounted in the front. Two LED lights can be activated by a thumb switch located on the back of the unit. They will provide you enough light to be able to follow along a wall or something in a dark house. My complaints would be that the switches are temporary. You have to hold the switch to keep the lights on. This is the same for the main light also. I wish they would modify it so it had an on/off on the handle.
    Those other mods are very sharp as well. I have only had the experience of seeing the military version of the SPR (SF version of the M16 modified for sniping). It's a nice weapon and is VERY accurate thanks to a block installed to keep the upper and lower recievers from rocking.
    I think this all goes to show that the M4 is the Boss. It can be modified without a lot of work to any application you can imagine. I guess that's why everyone wants one, huh?

    My rifle as I carried it in Afghanistan. For all of you "The Hunt for Bin Laden" readers, this was taken standing on "the whale" looking down into Sha-e-Kote Valley. Me and the Senior Medic on the team were the first Americans to crest the whale. We found, believe it or not.........dead Al Queda!

    Skyler, is that thing (hk4.jpg) a light, a shotgun, or a flaregun attachment?

    Nick Fury 2002 LSS (lightweight Shotgun System) Supposedly deployed with 10th Mountain now

    - Isn't this the same system that comes with BBI Chopper's M4? I was just wondering if this is meant to replace the Masterkey (pump-action) shotgun system. Other than 10th Mountain, who else uses it?

    Havoc has motivated me to lurk less, post more, so here is a pic of my M4 and I in N. Iraq as a TACP with 10th Special Forces Group.

    Wave, it's a HK grenade launcher, I think it's 40mm or 37mm.

    Hey Havoc what is all that equipment on your M4 in Iraq. I know thats an ACOG and the Surefire light but what else do you have on there? Thanks.

    I think that's a laser rangefinder (forgot the brand), not a surefire light. And a 'holey' supresser...This is the Knights supresser, right, Havoc?

    Except for the ACOG, it's actually similar to the DML M4 I put together for my BBI Owl.

    I'm not a BTDT, but I figured I could contribute.
    I think that this is from militaryphotos.net, not sure though.
