Re: Special Run Uppers - Build Thread

Every URX 5.56 gun that Costa owns that I know of has a mid URX. He used to have some carbine length, but to my knowledge, he changed them all to mid. The mid URX's are longer than 9", and long enough for even some pretty long arm shooters to achieve the style hold they teach. Who is this Costa and...

Re: Anyone own a Strayer-Voight Infinity ?

Virgil Tripp (the original "T" in STI) will build you a 1911 however you want it done. I have a couple he has done for me, a Colt Lightweight Commander .38 Super and a Kimber Polymer.

We're on the same wavelength all the way. An SR-47 lower would be awesome.

I still have both of my components, but am holding off building anything, yet. I will continue to buy the special run parts as long as I can float the cost because it is a great opportunity to buy some unique products that wouldn't be available to us without Casey and Trey's interest in our forum co...

No, it really was just like an X200 with pressure pads down each side. It did not have a vertical grip; you actually just gripped the light and squeezed it to activate.

Re: What Model Light Did I Have?

Thanks. It was a really cool setup since it replaced the vertical front grip on the MP5K-PDW and was very easy to use; I would like to get one for a carbine of my own, but am doubting these are available anywhere...even if we can successfully identify it.

What Model Light Did I Have?

While I was deployed in 2007-2008, I used an MP5K-PDW from our armory some. It had a Surefire rail on it and a rail mounted light, similar to an X200, but the pressure pads ran along either side of the light housing and were squeezed to activate. Is this model commercially available? I have never se...

Re: Is there any aluminum in the Omni? (Dip/Finish Question)

The Omni has no aluminum and would not be damged by the dip. Is the dip safe? Well, not if you ask me. Good call. I tried it for 12 hours to test it. Suppressor looks bright and shiny on the inside, but the finish just wiped right off the outside. What finish comes on these? I was not expecting tha...

Is it vinegar/peroxide dip safe? I have the dip ready from cleaning out my Spectre, and would like to know before I dispose of it if it wouldn't hurt to drop the Omni in. What finish is on the Omni?

My preferences are adjustable sights, long triggers (usually solid), and no front serrations. Not all of mine fit that, but it's my preference. I also prefer the Commander size to full-size.
