    The M4 is back, and this time it works :)

    :cool:

    [​IMG]

    Bushy lower
    LMT 14.5" M4 upper with Vortex G6 flash supressor
    all Colt internals
    Vltor stock and buffer tube
    H2 buffer
    Troy BUIS
    Larue Tactical 7.0 rail system
    Eotech 552 with larue tactical mount
    Tango down battle grip, vertical grip and rail covers
    CQB solutions (now called specter gear) HST single point sling
    Magpul trigger guard (which looks pink in the photo for some reason)
    and a little extra evil ;)

    now all I need is to cut a TD rail cover for the bottom.... and to go zero the sights and the Eotech.

    ......and then a surefire flashlight sooner or later

    when I sent the old upper back to teh guy I bought it from to test it out, I sent the aimpoint as well. Somehow it got lost.

    I decided I wanted to try out an Eotech instead of having him replace it wi6h anotehr aimpoint.

    no reason really, just to try something different.

    The EOTech is better than the Aimpoint IMO. :noes:


    Anyways, is the problem fixed with the new upper JD?

    havent shot it yet but grant did and he said he didnt notice a problem.

    its a totally different upper so I very much doubt it would have the same problem (which no one has heard of before or since).

    hopefully it will be problem free :x:

    one thing I noticed is the finish is much better on this one. No blemishes on the reciever.

    I dont know if you remember.

    Bolt not locking back. Misfeeds. Sent it back. Was told my lower was probably the cause of the problem. They replaced my bolt catch. Was told, this fixed the problem. Only doesnt lock back 10% of the time. :coolugh:

    I get it back. Fired 15 rounds and the fuckin bolt catch breaks on me. :eek3:

    I replaced it myself.

    Now, the bolt locks back every time. I was able to shoot 3 magazines perfectly :eek4:. But then, shit hit the fan. FTL round after round. I might get a few shots off, then it locks up. :noes:

    It was cleaned before I took it back out. My Bushy was running perfectly as always.

    I'm going to try it again. Maybe it's still "breaking in".... :x: I think i'm only at about 3 or 400 rounds with the LMT :hsd:

    my old LMT upper had no reliability problems whatsoever :dunno: hopefully this one will be the same.

    all fire control parts including the bolt and carrier are Colt in this carbine so i think it should be good :cool:

    first range report:

    got it zeroed today, both the BUIS and the EOtech. 50 yds, using Black Hills red box 75gr ammo.

    good groups (could have been better but I'm not the best benchrest shooter especially with irons and unmagnifed optics) best was about 1" or so.

    about 100 rds fired, one failure to feed towards the end.. I'm 90% sure it was mag related tho. The mag started loading the rounds funny (the follower tilted a few times) after a while and i forgot to tap it. Maybe I will try those new magpul followers that cant tilt.

    everything seems to be working properly...

    also, I LOVE the EOtech. easier to shoot accurately at distance than the aimpoint and quicker up close. The big 65 MOA circle is 6.5" at 10 yds. at close distance you dont even have to use the little dot, just put the big circle COM and you will get hits.

    best group of the day (eotech)

    [​IMG]

    actually 3 separate groups of three. teh three to the top/right are one group and then I adjusted windage to the left and shot the otehr two groups (one flyer). then I went down two clicks and shot another target, dead center.

    when you look thru the BUIS with the small aperature, the eotech's center dot sits top dead center on the front sight post :)
