    So as most of you are aware, I'm building demo rifles that showcase the range of products you can buy in my webstore. I'm just about done with the first one...the upper is with Sardie being photographed but the parts list includes:

    14.5" ATAC GPU built on a VLTOR MUR
    Noveske N4 lower
    Armalite LPK
    Geissele SSA
    Black MIAD
    Black ACS
    Enhanced trigger guard
    Armalite buffer tube
    LMT spring and heavy buffer
    Troy folding HK front sight and folding rear battle sight

    For the second build, I was going to do another black rifle but with a 16" ATAC GPU on a standard receiver and UBR. I'm starting to reconsider and going the FDE route. I might also go with a 6.5 Grendel instead of 5.56 however from what I'm told, 6.8SPC outsells 6.5G five to one even though 6.5G is the superior caliber.

    So what would you do??

  2. IMHO FDE is played out. Every operator on barfcom who watched the magpul videos has a FDE rifle. And yeah, 6.5 kicks 6.8's little bullet ass. Unfortunately the people who are most bent on buying stuff are the barfcom operators who want FDE 6.8 rifles. I suppose if you're looking to drum up sales it would make sense to build what they want to see. :hs:

    That's sort of what I'm thinking. These rifles will never be shot either unless I one day have a range where people can rent guns.

    Personally I'm not a huge FDE fan and like MG says everybody and their dog has one. If I had to go with a color other than black I'd go with OD or Foliage Green :dunno:

    For every ten pieces of black I sell, I sell six pieces of FDE, four pieces of OD, and between one to to two pieces of foliage. Fuck, this shouldn't be so damn hard...damn Magpul and their colors...

    It's "Evil Black Rifle", not "Evil Flat Dark Earth Rifle".


    That just sounds gay.

    Go FDE. Bottom line, if it means a couple more sales, it'll be worth it. The people who want black, OD, or foliage will just buy in that color anyway. The barfoperators want to see FDE!! :rofl:

    Hey man, if it enables the fantasy of being an elite tactical operator in the "sandbox" then as a pusher you gotta give the users what they want.

    FDE doesn't go well with my zombie apocalypse in Seattle/Portland fantasy at all though.
