The Angry Gun Surefire SOCOM Suppressor

After waiting for nearly half a decade someone finally made one, after the release I contacted Angry Gun and grabbed both the 7.62 and 5.56 in FDE.

Since I only just got these suppressors this will only be an overview of them.

While talking to my contact at Angry Gun it turns out that the suppressor straight from angry gun has no markings, while if you order from JKARMY they have markings laser etched on. As of right now only suppressors sold through JKARMY have markings, as they sent theirs out to be processed.

Now onto the suppressor, now the color I can say that it is very close to the WE SCAR H FDE lower. DSC_0473

The latching system has a nice audible click when you turn the ratcheting system, Angry Gun’s system latching system allows for VERY solid QD system.

There is one inaccurate thing I can see with the suppressor is that the prongs on the flash hider are wrong. Thanks to the The_Derpy_Guy on DEVTSIX and some more research, turns out the flash hider is correct for the military 4 prong flash hider.

On the flash hider there is a little notch and one on the inside of the suppressor, you have to align these up to ensure tight fit when you tighten down the ratchet.

Below I have placed the suppressor next to some accessories to assist in comparing the color. Just a small FYI the color of the rail is not FDE but Geissele’s desert dirt color.

All in all the I am VERY happy with this suppressor the only pet peeves I have is that there are no markings and that the prongs on the flash hider is wrong.


M4 Restoration & Conversion

My King Arms Colt M4 has been one of my most trusted AEG primaries over the past three years. Over it’s life I’ve given it different paint jobs with different patterns,  I’ve tossed a variety of internals and external parts on it as needed but sometimes you need to reevaluate an AEGs purpose in your inventory and either refit it or sell it.

It’s all about the little things….

People always tell me they are doing a impression following special operations groups – I am up for that, but at the same time I often see people compromising on gear or accessories, while saying that others won’t see the difference. They shouldn’t compromise, as it is the little things that complete a impression; it is the little things that make it complete.

For example, I bought this sight over 2 years ago, so I could complete my SOPMOD Block 2 load out. People may ask me why I would buy something like this for a toy gun, but at the end of the day I bought it because it was accurate. Because of this my gun looks more accurate compared to the other ones out there. Remember if you are doing an impression, try and stay true to what you see from the photos and not what you think will work. It will make it worth it at the end of the day for you and the “look” will appear so much better.


Geargasm: Vltor CASV-M + Magpul MVG

photo

Here’s a pro tip: a Magpul MVG can mount directly to the Vltor CASV-M using one of the included screws for mounting rail sections, and one of the rail section screw holes. There’s no need for the foregrip retaining plate to the mounted to the inside of the rail unit, either. The result is a slick foregrip mounting solution without the need to mount a rail section first, and then a foregrip on top of that.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the CASV-M is the hipster of rail systems. It was a slick rail system before slick rail systems were cool. Also, it thinks that Keymod is so mainstream, and that real rail systems just screw stuff on…


PTX Keymod Rail: Quick Update

I was out there running my recently reassembled 14.5″ PTW upper today – I’m definitely loving the rail; it’s a keeper!

No issues thus far with the rail system itself, though I will probably have to play around with moving that sling mount around a bit. The Parallax Tactical FFSSR Keymod has got the right profile for the job, and it certainly seems to be a bit of a head-turner.

I was just thinking that one of the next purchases for this upper will be a short BCM Gunfighter Vertical Grip. Then I started thinking about how my experiments thus far with mounting various forward grips to this slim profile rail utilizing a Keymod rail section have usually just been not quite comfortable enough, as there will be a little bit of a ledge between the vertical grip, rail section, and rail itself. This lead to me going online to see if there was a lower profile Keymod rail section out there than the one lonesome Parallax 5-slot I have at the moment… or better yet, see if there was some sort of Keymod-mounted vertical grip out there on the market yet that would feel similar. But upon booting up my computer, I logged onto Facebook to see what was new (hurray for social media habits), and lo and behold! This is what I saw as Larry Vickers’ recent status update: https://www.facebook.com/LarryVickers/posts/10154067361950416

Yes – Vickers just got some pre-production BCM Keymod stubby vertical grips (photo comes from his Facebook post). Perfect timing… now, the wait for these to be released begins!


KWA RM4 ERG + Vltor CASV-M

blast from the past!

blast from the past!

Well, I finally did it – I went and hopped on the KWA ERG bandwagon thanks to a timely trade involving my LCT AK105 (which saw more use as a display piece at home than anything else). The ERG came with some professional internal upgrades pre-installed, but more on that in a separate entry.

I knew even before I got the ERG in my hands that the front end with the MOE handguard would have to go. I love Magpul, but have never been a fan of the look/feel of the MOE handguard. Moreover, I’m seeing more and more ERGs out there and I like my guns to look a little unique.

With the ERG being front-wired and with re-wiring to the rear out of the question due to the recoil mechanism taking up the buffer tube space, I had two options: 1) run a rail system and a lipo in a PEQ, or 2) find a rail system that I could cram a lipo into. Having had a poor experience running PEQ lipos when I owned my TM Recoil Shock, I decided to go with the latter.

Enter: a real steel Vltor CASV-M.

Surefire M961 x Element M951

We were testing compatibility between some of the components of a real Surefire M961 and a Element M951 current-gen (both lights are a simple matter of unscrewing the head and tail cap from the body), out of curiosity. The following are the results:
