I very much dislike those magazine pouches. I can't think of a way to more effectively expose your rounds to the dust and muck.

Considering its use case, its an intended trade-off for better water drainage. Whether its worth it is up to them to T&E. Many other SOF (eg US navy seals) have been doing the same.

So if these were adopted: Colt Canada MRR: The Modular Railed Rifle



Then I could just use the Troy M-Lok Battle Rail that I posted earlier and I'll be even closer to this look than before!!!

And here it is, my C8A3 after major mods.
I got someone to do my engravings in HK and it came out exactly how I preferred. The fire selectors have accurate markings

Other things include:
  • Simon Sleeve
  • Spectre Dr 1-4x
  • Ergo grip
  • Sling plate
  • Vortex flash hider
  • Vltor IMOD Stock
  • PEQ-15

I originally wanted to put the PEQ to the top, but I after realized how much it was blocking the sight, I took it off.
I will eventually paint it tan someday, but for now I consider the project as finally completed.

Updated my "Gunstruction" C8IUR wannabe to include the 9" Troy Industries M-Lok Battlerail. I definitely think this is the way to go.

Incidentally, this whole IUR thing blew wide open for me when I happened across a post on The Reptile House Blog mentioning the new UKSF L119A2 appearing to have the same or similar IUR as the CANSOFCOM variant! WHOLLY CRAP!

https://thereptilehouseblog.com/2016/05/15/cansof-yhm/

Rich, the author of the blog, also referenced this thread and gave me a shout out! Super guy!

If you haven't visited his blog, please do! It's an amazing collection of articles and images of PTW's, L119's, C8's & HK416's as well as related up-to-date industry info!

Thanks again to Rich from https://thereptilehouseblog.com/
