re: Official AR-15 thread
I did too....but the tracking number said it was delivered 2 Fridays ago. And when I went to pick up something, they said they hadn't received anything.

What did you get, I'm wondering if they are shipping the octanes or shipping the new Omega Ks

I got a omega300 and a octane45 as the free one. The omega ck for the stamp cashed in september. I wonder if the govt shut down is making stamp approval take longer?

At lunch today I stopped by my dealer and they did receive the suppressor. It sounds like they received a few of them. Their comment was that they are still cataloging the suppressors and once that is done they will let me know.

I think you already know the answer.

You should receive approval around Sept to October

Waiting on stamp for first one, haven't heard anything about my spectre2 yet. Email from silencero in Feb said that the dealer would get it by June 29th. Taking that statement from them with a grain of salt though

Coming up on 360 days since the purchase, damn gov shutdown making this stamp take forever

I bought the 45k and the spectre 2 as my free one. My 45k cleared a cpl of weeks ago. I asked SiCo last Friday about The spectre 2...got a tracking number today that shows Thursday delivery. Then I am guessing in about a year i'll get it

PA has a Faxon 10.5" on sale for $125

Is that about the best sale price I'll be able to get?

re: Official AR-15 thread
So what length rail would you use?

Barrel is 18”, rifle gas.

15.5” would put the gas block at the opening of the rail, exposing some of the gold fluted barrel.

17.5” would put the gas block right at the changeover in the design. Design is pretty open anyway so you still see the gold fluted goodness.

re: Official AR-15 thread
That’s a sharp looking hand guard but would it be comfortable shooting?

I’d probably choose the 17.5 of those options.

re: Official AR-15 thread
No idea I have not put hands on one...but it’s looks fit with what I’m after. I’ll likely be shooting this rifle from a bipod or a rest of some sort so it won’t matter too much.

I’m leaning 17.5 but curious to hear what others would do.

I’m assuming this is a 17.5 on a 18” barrel.

re: Official AR-15 thread
Based on that picture the only issue you may see is if you’re planning on using a can.

The threads will be longer than .5” so a can would not fit.
