    Just do some flat silver dry brushing on the 240 and it’ll look perfect. Also, we normally paint our tools entirely tan, which obviously wear off into black on the edges. As far as tracks go, we run 80 on one side, 82 on the other. They’re always offset. When they’re brand new it’s 84, but after a little bit of use we “short-track” them and take off a few. Feel free to disregard my input, but it’s rare to see guys build the Brad so I love to throw in insight when I can.

    She’s looking great!! Really capturing the look. One thing (take it for what it’s worth), our 240’s get ABUSED in those turrets, so they’re almost more silver than black. They’re also probably getting close to 30 years old at this point 😂😂

    I was part of some wild names... my personal favorite was Operation Angry Penguin. We thought it was a joke at first... turns out that was the actual name.

    They come to us black. We just paint them so we can identify ours (after someone has stolen it). Yellow is the armor color so they do everything yellow. Us Cavalrymen paint everything red and white.

    In reality the basket tends to get banged up quite a bit, so some warping and stuff isn’t a huge problem

    Your paintwork is amazing!

    I run an eotech on 3 of my ARs (at home) and then depending on the status I either use an eotech or ACOG at work. In Baghdad I used an eotech, up in Mosul and in Afghanistan I used the ACOG, most of our engagements were over 300m. There’s a bill in Congress right now called the Hearing Protections Act that’s trying to remove suppressors from the restricted list, I doubt it’ll pass but until it’s either shut down completely or it passes I’m holding off on doing the paperwork to get one.

    I have the same optic on my AR... the difference was I don’t need a permit. I live in the South of the US and our gun laws are...liberal... to say the least. Hunting here is quite different too, for the most part all you need is a license (get it online, takes 5 minutes) and you’re good to go, there’s literally millions of acres of public land. Some states and species have restricted numbers or tags, but for the most part anyone can hunt any animal anywhere (in season). I do wish our suppressor laws were as relaxed as yours though.

    That’s a good looking AR! Is that a Vortex optic? Also, what kind of hunting is there in the UK? I know it’s completely different than here in the states

    I gotta ask... with your knowledge of realtree, Mossy Oak and kryptek... are you American, and do you hunt?

    If I remember right it’s part of the fire suppression system. I’ll dig out my manual tonight and look. I spend all my time in the turret, so other then the most basic driving functions, the driver’s hole is a mystery to me. I served my time as a driver in a humvee, didn’t move to a Brad until much later in my career.
