    Okay then the next big choice would be what optic to use.

    Many of the Recces I have seen on this site have 1-4X variables, but in another thread I learned this about the original ones:

    "The original whatever you want to call them- Recces, SPRs, MK 12s (we usually just say "sniper M4") had a 16" barrel, Leupold 2.5-10 and a PRI foregrip. They were first used operationally in '93 in Somalia by our guys that were attached to our Southern brethren."

    Recce users, what say you on this?

    To me a recce and SPR are two very distinct guns.



    A recce is able to be used in CQB in a pinch due to the size, and optic. An SPR is a dedicated light sniper platform that would be be a real hindrance in a CQB environment. Accuracy is similar but the application of that accuracy is very different.


    I am much more confident in my ability to score hits at range with the SPR than a recce.

    I'm going to throw in my vote for a Magpul ACS. I put one on my recce set up and it balances quite nicely. I used the 16" centurion light weight barrel.

    Without an optic (still saving for a TR 24) and unloaded, the balance sits about an inch in front of the trigger guard, right in the magwell.

    I'd say ACS or EMOD with BCM Stickers over the gap. Both have a bit more weight (can be added to with batteries in the storage), which will tame muzzle-heaviness if you want to go that route.

    That said, I'm running a preproduction UBR on my Centurion Mk12

    how is a sopmod different/better than, say, an Emod? I find the cheekweld to be practically identical. is it something else?

    The cheekweld never moves no matter what what position the stock is in for one, two it locks up every bit as tight as a fixed A2 when in a position, thirdly it allows preset positions, fourthly it has a huge, easily assessable storage capacity.

    sopmods fit snug on LMT receiver extensions, but so do most quality stocks. i've had sopmods literally rattle on non-LMT REs- especially the tan ones, for some reason.

    as to the other three points... huh? the cheekweld moves if the stock moves, on either stock. are you thinking of the UBR?

    The max range my Recce would be used at would be 600m. Is the 1-4X enough for that?

    LOL...indeed I am.....gotta run, short bus is honking out front

    reasons why I personally like the sopmod second best would be the actual LMT Rec. Ext, I also like how easily you can pop the actual stock on and off.

    Centurion makes a great barrel. I have their cl barrel so it's a little different than what you want. But, Centurion is on the same level as any top top tier barrel manufacture.
