Mod 2 Availability?

Post by .300WinMag » Sun May 25, 2014 12:46 pm

For those with your ear to the KAC ground, any thoughts on when the 16" Mod2s will come around?


TIA

According to KAC they are on schedule to ship in May. I guess they have a few days left......

I picked mine up today. This is my first SR15 (have a 25 ER). Just looking at it - pretty good. Really nice trigger (far better than my 25). Keymod is a little different. Part of me says sell this ASAP for a few dollars more and find a new Mod1 upper and call it good. I have an LPR upper showing up next week so I guess I can see what I think about Mod 1 v Mod 2 at that time.

I have a URX 4 handguard and a Mod 1 upper (minus barrel)

I like the URX 3.1 a bit better because it's slimmer. However, If I had a Mod 2, I would not trade it for a Mod 1. The new gas system and other enhancements are worth it IMHO. Plus, if you just get a Mod 1 upper, you won't have all the KAC lower stuff (ambi).

A Mod 1 upper just hit M4Carbine.net the other day for $1250 and sold quickly. So, they do show up. I bought my Mod 1 upper (less barrel and bolt) for $400.

Boltcarrier.com has a few 16" mod 1 uppers for sale now (new) for $1425.
