    Coming soon to the Mega Arms product line is our new monolithic tactical system (MTS-300) mid-length upper.



    We start with billet 7075-T6 aluminum, and machine this true monolithic part; a design which is an extension of our new billet upper. Comes complete with our newly designed barrel nut and wrench. The exciting part about this design is that it is compatible with nearly any stock barrel.



    Look for this design to be on display at the Las Vegas SHOT Show in January booth #2338.



    Also, watch for this new monolithic tactical system to be available in pistol and carbine lengths in the coming months!

    I don't really get it. What is the supposed tangible benefit?

    Pretty hard when you're trying to do it into a solid block of aluminum.

    That's probably because you can't reach the mailbox.

    looks cool. The real benefit is that your scope will line up nicely with standard rings. The best part about the vis is the ability to take your barrel off/on in <1 minute without fucking up your POI.

  17. What's the point of taking your barrel off in 1 minute without loss of POI? I mean, are you going to switch to another caliber barrel? In that case, are you taking your optic off too? If you don't then you'll have to re-zero it anyways. If you are switching optics and barrels to change calibers, then why not just have 2 different ARs? The optic and the barrel setup are the most expensive part anyways.

    How much does this MONOLITHIC upper assembly cost, and how much do the barrels for it cost?

    for badassery
     
  19. I guess if you want the novelty of fitting it into a briefcase. You'd need a pretty short barrel to get it in there anyways.

    The barrel example works for running an 18" spr for bench and then you can pop it off and run an SBR with irons, which makes for a fun day at the range.

    I know you guys just like to hate on anything expensive just for the sake of hating, but it really starts to make sense when you look at the pricing.

    Vis $640

    higher end upper 175-230 (sundevil to vltor) + Decent FF rail 275-350
    Total $450-580

    Now instead of buying a larue SPR for $215 you can buy a ~$100 set of rings which will be more solid anyway.

    So basically your paying the same price for a way better system, that let's you swap barrels, that allows you to mount a scope or red dot anywhere you want. Your buis aren't going to move due to flex in the rail mount.

    No this isn't the same price as a bargin bin rifle, but if you are going to start playing with FF rails and such anyway, the super mega monolithic ecock enhancing parts are actually much better and are not always more expensive.

    Barrels are no different. You can jack around trying to speed up your 3 gun times with everything under the sun. Spending $100 more on a ecock enhancing barrel seems crazy but may save you a few hours of dialing in hand loads.

    So my noveske lasts longer than slightly cheaper barrel. How much does it cost to shoot a more accurate barrel on a per round basis even if the barrel is more expensive? Probably nothing, infact the noveske is probably cheaper.

    18" spr fits diagonally in a standard sized briefcase without a muzzle device.
     
  22. :rofl: at the idea that we hate on things jsut because they're expensive.

    :rofl::rofl: at the idea that this thing is going to give any practical accuracy advantage over another FF setup. The fact is that standard uppers work just fine, are capable of fantastic accuracy, and don't cost anywhere near what this thing costs. Further, they use all standard components, which allows you to use more easily acquired parts.

    For the record, the upper on my new AR build is a standard upper, costing something like $130 and my JP FF handguard was $142 from brownells. That's $272 total, and I'd happily put it up against this $600+ "way better" system. Spend money where it makes sense, and save it where it makes sense.

    Aren't you going to have to re-zero every time you do a barrel swap? Seems to me it would be easier just to have another upper.
     
  24. That was one of my points that fatmoocow ignored. :hs:
