The non-ballistic helmet and UCP camo suggest it being state-side training maybe. But usually they wear Multi-cam. UCP has been canceled and Multi-Cam has replaced it. Do you know if this was some training thing or airsoft?

Good eye sir. I got a little quick on the trigger I suppose. They just look damn cool
according to this page of the MK12 thread a few guys wanted a more RECCE version of the MK12

A few folks specifically wanted 16" variants. Nothing about it was a mistake on PRIs part, or anyone elses for that matter. My purpose in posting about it is only to document a lesser know faction of the Mk12 lineage. All the info I have on them is factual; I've handled them in their arms room, have photos of them in use down range, and have the majority of the specs on it. Let me put something together and I'll get it posted.
They should however still be 16" with the OPS inc 12th suppressor covering a few inches of barrel.

Craig "Sawman" Sawyer with a similar setup.



I would have to assume those are training photos since they are out on the net and such.

Ah, that's right the OPS Inc. does have a sleeve. They look interesting as long as you have a supressor for it.

Another CA build.

I thought it wasn't recommended to mount the MBUS on a gas block? I'm guess it's a temp solution since you can't fold down the front anyway.

yeah, eats up about 3" of barrel.


Can you imagine taking a $4000 rifle and pulling out the Krylon rattle can? Looks badass, and effective, but damn man

Looks more like molybdenum to me. Rattle cans won't layer like that.

I've thought about doing it. I had a little over $3000 in mine. (some of those SPR parts are $$$.) Krylon comes off a lot easier then Duracoat or other coating. I think the reason they use it is because it's cheap and it doesn't have to be even. It wears off and adds to the camo.

I know. Seeing all the Krylon camo jobs has me kinda wanting to do it to my carbine. It's all tacticool'd out and shit. Might as well.


Oh, and Fuck Stickman



I've really gotta finish this thread. Been chipping away at it for over a week. Page 155/156.

Yeah, his pics are cool. They got me to buy the DD Omega 7.0 when it first came out. Also the XTM's when they first came out as well. I did the "mix-n'- match" right after I saw Stickman's review of them. Then everyone wanted to do it. Problem was no one could get them panels. Magpul was backordered for a long time on Forest and OD. I finished my build back in 2008. Been thinking about changing my upper. I'd like to have a 300BK and maybe a dedicated precision 22LR.

I wish Nightforce still sold those scopes. That's the 2.5x-10x in the 1x-4x body which was a special order for the SEALs.

absolutely. Guns are tools.

I understand that some people collect tools and like to keep them pretty and all - I'd love to be able to afford it myself. While I wouldn't modify or paint up something really old, unique, and valuable, plenty of people did which is why they are so unique and valuable today.

Interestingly enough, some painted up guns and magazines, like Rhodesian FALs, are highly desirable because of the paint and provenance.

Reminds me of the "Tactical" double barrels I once saw in my local shop.
