My Glock 17 has operated almost perfectly since I initially received it close to two years ago. Out of the box, you can’t beat the performance of a TM Glock. But despite this initial perfection, there’s always that voice in the back of your head telling you it can perform better.
So onto what I’ve done to push performance and durability on my TM Glock 17.
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.
I know you’re all probably tired of the Operation: Iceback stuff we’ve been posting lately, so here’s something I haven’t posted in awhile: my loadout from this past Sunday’s Bellator Entertainment game day.
I wanted to rock a plate carrier as I’ve been rocking a chest rig for the past month or two of games (I love my 1961a), and so I settled on my Flyye AOR1 6094a/k. I eventually ended up with something vaguely resembling a SEAL loadout, with the exception of the 14.5″ RIS II (SEALs are more likely to rock a Mk18 RIS II, amirite?).
Anyway, more pics and a kitlist after the break.
If there’s one thing I learned from running AOR1 this past Sunday at Bellator Entertainment’s game day, it’s that AOR1 is horribly, horribly ineffective right now given how green everything is; I think the above picture illustrates that nicely.
But boy, did I look awesome. Look – even Dirt (in the background) approves.
Kitlist (haven’t done one of those in awhile) and general comments after the break.

Last week was our first time running our AOR2 /AOR1 kit. A little hesitant to call it a full SEALs impression just yet as it’s obviously WIP, but I’d say we’re well on our way. 🙂
Fireteam Bro’s been really into the impression scene lately, and we’ve started slowly branching out into other impressions to add to our MARSOC impression. Being heavily inspired by some of the crazy impressions on gearwhore.org, we decided to field our first draft (I must stress, this is a first run and is obviously a WIP and is far, far from complete) of our Taliban Hunter impression.
For those not in the know, this impression is based on DEVGRU, Delta, and other special operations units’ during their Taliban hunting missions in the mid-late 2000s. The most defining item of the impression is obviously the blanks worn as cloaks. These were meant to assist the units in blending in with the indigenous population, which was necessary considering how deep they were into traditionally Taliban-held territory.
Anyway, more pics after the break.
With thanks to DXN, I’ve recently been able to finish up my SOPMOD M4A1 accessory kit with a M203 grenade launcher.
Currently, my King Arms M4A1 is sporting the following:
- barrel-mounted M203 QD with standard 12″ barrel
- clone ACOG TA31 (I do prefer this QD mounting system over the “correct” thumbscrews that tend to loosen up)
- G&P KAC-style 600m folding BUIS
- 14.5″ barrel, with A2 birdcage flash hider with notch for M4QD suppressor
- Classic Army KAC RAS (differences between KAC RAS and RIS are listed here) from Dizzy’s old CA M4
- PRO&T functional AN/PEQ-15 with flashlight and red laser
- VFC CQD rear sling mount
- King Arms front sling mount (I still don’t know who makes the real one of this)
- Element VLTOR EMOD stock
- Magpul PTS trigger guard
Some basic information about the SOPMOD accessory kit and my take on this build is after the break.
