    Regarding the Sandman-K, I have one that basically lives on this gun. I think the K is one of the best options for a 12.5-16" barrel. I added the flash hiding endcap because there was significant muzzle flash visible through the optic. The endcap does tame it quite a bit, and was well worth the money.

    I'm glad to see others using a similar set-up, and I'm honestly looking to build a second one as a back-up because I do so much with this one rifle. Best of luck on the stamp wait on the Sandman-K, I'm confident you will really like what it does.
    Awesome! Post a pic here, I'd like to see your rifle. ...And ya, I'm impatiently waiting on that stamp. 6 months in and now the govt is shut down. Im sure im in for another 3 months. #repealthenfa (pipe dream, i know).

    Here are a few pictures before I got the light on it. I let a buddy shoot it and he's in the process of building pretty much the same upper. I just bought him the same BA 13.7 barrel here on the EE, and we'll be putting it together in a couple weeks. He'll be using a pistol lower with the SBA3 brace for now, but plans on the SOLGW NOX for a pin and weld.

    How are the Triarc barrels in that length with G rails? I was very tempted to try one with my MK16 but was worried it'd feel like a tank.

    Why would it feel like a tank? You’d be pairing a Medium contour barrel with a light rail?

    Now when it does feel “tankish” is when you have a razor, peq, and a can on the end. lol.

    I'd heard different things about how heavy the barrels were, and at that time there seemed to be some discrepancies with the site's weight listings. Plus my two primary hand guards before the MK16 were both a few ounces lighter and paired with LW barrels. In the end, I put a BCM ELW on it, but I do want one of their barrels for a pistol/SBR.

    Love it! ...Cant wait to get my Sandman K...Unfortunately im at 6 months, and now the govt is shutdown. I bet I have another 3 months or so to go. Also, the NOX is cool. I ran it for a while before switching back to an ASR mount for my other can. It's a little too aggressive as a comp IMO, as I feel it drives the muzzle down a bit too much, but overall a pretty effective MD.

    Right on! ...I'd love to try out the 12.5 midlength from Triarc. I think that'd be a hell of a smooth shooter.

    That'd be my first choice, I just wish there were more rails for that length. I really want to put BCM's QRF on a shorty upper for some reason.

    Shot you a PM, looking for some input on how your 13.7 is running.

    As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
