    Chris Costa M4

    Alright I am probably beating a dead horse with this question but hey what can I say. Also since this comes from an slightly older DVD makes it more of a dead hit. I am trying to find out what rifle this really is in the picture attached. The only thing I know for a fact is that the flash suppressor is from Knights Armament and the site is Aimpoint but the actually rifle details are unknown. Can anyone help?

    Interestingly, Knight's is actually releasing an SR15 that is extremely similar to that (the 7" URX, TTB, pre-IWS Lower).

    Well I know Chris has a good tie in with Knights so maybe his own line might be coming out. Hmm have any more details? Would be rather nice to get one almost exactly the same and not play lego with AR parts.

    Most likely custom made by KAC

    I highly doubt that.

    Why not find out what works best for you?

    Knights Armament, SR15 SBR, 11.5...



    Has carbine/7" URX rail, gas block flip sight, Triple Tap, E3 bolt....



    KAC is selling those SBR's right now. The more updated version has the URX middy and lo pro gas block. Same barrel and bolt.

    It looks to be an SR16 upper (carbine) on a standard lower (a.k.a. non-ambi). Obviously the barrel is an 11.5" with a triple tap brake. Even the gas block with the flip up sight is a KAC product as well. If you look at his rifle and then you look at the SR16 it is essentially the same only a shorter barrel.

    Ranger,

    The carbine in your picture is a KAC SR-16 E3 upper on a Magpul lower. The rest of the gear is pretty obvious.

    If anyone is interested keep you eye on eBay. I am going to be selling some Chris Costa beard trimmings in the near future along with an official Magpul vinyl sticker.

    That is tempting, but I'm gonna hold off for the LAV and Jerry M Doo Rags....Costa Craze is more barf, I think LAV Lunacy is M4C style.

    Note: The term Unicorn should only apply to horses with a single horn, or a C-Series lower

    Costa's beard trimmings are very hard to come by. Most of them are used to make body armor and the rest are used to make replacement heat ablative tiles for the Space Shuttle. Once they retire the Shuttles they'll be a little easier to acquire, and not quite so expensive.

    If you throw this in, you could probably name your price.

    dear god.

    To the OP, I'm curious to know why you're asking about the rifle? I think you'll find that if you go buy a Colt 6920 or similar and shoot the piss out of it, you'll find very little lacking and will actually be able to identify what you need and what works for you on your rifle.
