In another thread, there was a discussion about clamp-on gas blocks. I figured that this was as good an excuse as any to show off my attempt at chopping my SPRs Larue 13.2 handguard to house a clamp-on switchblock - the good folks at Noveske won't deign to sell the pinned version by itself. The actualy cutting of the handguard wont be confused with that of a seasoned professional, but its good enough for my needs. After cutting the handguard, I had planned on touching up the exposed metal with a little black krylon. When it came time to paint, I discovered that I was out and was way too drunk to go get more. The whole rifle got painted OD green instead. My set up, for those interested: A4 upper and Wilson lower Larue 13.2 handguard and Magpul ladders Noveske 18" SPR barrel and switchblock BCM BCG and Gen 2 Mod 4 charging handle Geissele National Match trigger and KNS pins CTR stock and Tango Down large grip Harris HBMLS bipod with KMW pod lock and Larue QD mount Leupold Mk4 MR/T 2.5-8x36 M2 scope on Larue mount Troy HK style front BUIS, Matech rear *I know the flash suppressor is jacked up. It's just on there now as a thread protector until my Surefire brake/suppressor mount shows up.
