I’ve heard the Stealth barrels are pretty chubby. What are you using now?
    Yep running 16" chunky stealth barrel with a 11" rail as my primary for a long time and smoking my arms out after a few drills was a thing before I knew better and paid attention to weight and balance. My current primary is a 14.5" Hodge with Triarc's 13" Wedgelock and a T2 + Vortex 6x magnifier which I just got. Going to be playing around with the 6x all summer before I figure out if I want to keep it or not.

    Awesome post man. Good break from politics and current events. Thank you. This is what M4C used to be like all the time.

    Looking nice, especially with a T2 to replace the LPVO. I've got an upper that keeps raising it's hand and saying, "I need to be a 12 inch!".

    Don't currently have a foot-long in the mix but I'm leaning hard towards building another one to serve as my primary "nightlarper". The 10 is just a bit too crowded when loaded down with the necessary accoutrements, and the 14 is just too long when wearing a can. Not to mention the ballistic advantage over the 10.
    Go Ukraine! Piss on the Russian dead.

    I have a build I did a couple years ago with a Hodge 14.5" barrel (which is supposedly gas-ported to be optimal for M855A1), gas block pinned and AAC prong FH perm-attached by John Thomas. Cryptic Coatings Mystic Black BCG, Colt lower, Geissele SD-C trigger, BCM MLOK handguard, Troy BUIS, and a Steiner P4Xi in a Scalarworks mount.

    Damn barrel set me back $450 and this was in 2020. God knows what they are now.

    Looks to be the same. Then again I never paid full price for a Hodge barrel, Ive only paid just bit over what you would pay for a BCM HF barrel.

    Just shopping around or an "inside line"?

    Yeah, it was pricey but it's a damn good barrel from my very limited experience with it and everything I've read. No regrets.

    That sounds like a well balanced setup. Let me know what you think about that 6x.

    Yup. Its Goldilocks for me on a personal gun.


    By the way, the reason I called it “Next Generation” isn’t because I think its some nevah bin dun befo setup or anything. Its because its not quite ready to take over from its predecessor, which is similarly not quite dead yet. As I swap accessories around and get it where I’m happy, it’ll gradually become my primary.

    Ive only used a friends and family code with OPtactical once, the rest of my stuff are from email sales codes from Weapon Outtfitters. Recently they had a 17% off code for armed forces day, picked up 16" Hodge for ~$390

    That’s an awesome build, I still love those Larue quad rails. Crazy question, are you running a Colt carbine or rifle length action spring? The A5 is designed to use a rifle length spring.
