Quarter Circle 10 posted this photo of an SBR using their 9mm Colt magazine compatible lowers. The custom wood handguard and wooden accents added to the Magpul UBR stock give it a pseudo retro look to the gun. Even the Aeroknox Orion AR grip has some wood accents to add to the overall look. What do you think?

    The hand guard looks like it’s from a ptr
    It doesn’t look bad but I feel like others have intigrated wood a little better https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ba12ce3791c52a5264ba039188e0aaa36bd355bb3329f271bcd2f9026a029266.jpg

      This rifle is EPIC. I would buy that wood furniture kit in a heartbeat if you could buy it.

      • Twilight sparkle

        I believe battle arms development sold their own version of it awhile back. iirc they had everything about right except the pistol grip

        • valorius

          I’ll have to look into that.

        • valorius

          No longer on their website. Judging by their prices though, i wouldn’t have bought it anyway.

          • jcitizen

            They still got the green upper/lower, but that is it. Still sell the basic hand guard in black, stock is out of stock – no wood anywhere.

          • valorius

            Judging by what they’re charging for basic handguards, that wood set must’ve been huge money.

          • jcitizen

            Fer sure! :O

    • Nicholas C

      I have already posted that one in a POTD post.

    • Paveway

      This rifle build really needs one of those bronze finished lowers to complete the look.

    • jcitizen

      KEWL!

  • SP mclaughlin

    Wood and rails, ugh.
    Make a classic AR-10 style 9mm carbine.

  • Audie Bakerson
    • int19h

      Complete without the charging handle?

      • SP mclaughlin

        I think it’s on the bolt carrier (AKi-sh) in that game.

        • int19h

          It isn’t in New Vegas (which the pic above is from). As you can see on the pic there’s no charging handle on this side of the receiver, and the other side just looks like a basic AR receiver, with no cutout/handle. Curiously, it doesn’t have BHO, either. It’s just something that they forgot about.

          In Fallout 4, it does have a charging handle sticking out of the ejection port. Which, of course, makes the dust cover effectively inoperable, since it can’t be closed, and also makes it impossible for the bolt to cycle properly.

          It’s just those little things that game designers forget when they do guns.

          • Kelly Jackson

            I disagree, it’s really a matter of polygons for things that 99.9% of the players won’t notice.

            In fact when the Service rifle malfunctions in first person view the player uses the forward assist to try and close the bolt.

          • Audie Bakerson

            Really though, if they were really hurting for polygons, they should have scrapped the brass deflector instead. Makes it look older (and avoids the fact that it’s a Canadian invention).

          • Mike Guthrie

            I believe this is actually a qc10 side charging upper. Something that they promoted as coming soon but I’ve never actually seen for sale. When I built my pcc I had this in mind to match the lower but couldn’t find it.

          • int19h

            The pic that I replied to is definitely the Service Rifle render from Fallout, not a real gun.

          • Andrew Duffey

            If you click on the Fallout NV service rifle to enlarge the pic you’ll see the charging handle at the front of the bolt carrier and that the “dust cover” is actually another shell deflector.

          • r h

            its the fact that game devs are usually not “gun” people by nature. id say the ones ive met are much more on the other side of the aisle politically. and since they are ignorant they assume everyone else is regardless of the evidence to the contrary. i mean it would take a 3d model designer what? 30 secs to look up the gun hes copying to find out what the bits and pieces do? and yet they dont bother.. hollywood did and does the same thing with firearms. in the 70s i remember all the westerns had 1894 lever actions and colt peace makers even though some were set during or just after the civil war..

    I can see it popping up in an alternate timeline sci fi movie

    • BattleshipGrey

      Like Star Wars?

      • noob

        I thought that Star Wars **was** our timeline, just a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Otherwise we couldn’t put ourselves down as “Jedi” or “Sith” religion on the census.

        • BattleshipGrey

          I’m not sure. If so, how’d they get the AR furniture onto their guns in The Force Awakens?

          • noob

  • Malthrak

    That is cerainly retro looking, looks cool but I can never get over all the issues PCC AR’s seem to have to make the jump.

    • SGT Fish

      PCC ARs don’t have many issues, less than regular ARs. they are very simple machines being blowback operated and all. Mine works 100% and was thrown together with 10+ different mfgr parts.

      • Malthrak

        This may just be anecdotal experience, but everyone I know that has owned one has eventually had things like hammer pins break (due to the different velocities of the carrier with a blowback) and the like, stuff that doesnt happen in normal AR’s. They appear to have long term durability issues with parts like that.

  • valorius

    I like the stock.

      …that’s just an upside-down AK in bullpup configuration…

      • Palmier

        Just?

        • Anonymoose

          Okay, it may be more than just upside-down. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle made of AK features.

          • noob

            Our new gas tube configuration routes gas from the gas block, over the trigger guard and then directly impinges on the bottom of the bolt carrier just above the bullpup trigger lockwork!

  • Brett baker

    What we should have had instead of the M3. I want 1.

  • jamezb

    Me likey me shoot it long time.

  • Capn Jack

    Wish I had one.

  • AHill

    Looks very MP5/10-like. The only thing I’m not really sold on is the free float tube and the muzzle device, they need something more MP5 style. Also ETS style Colt-pattern 9mm mags when?

    PS On a moderately related note: a 16.1″ Colt AR6951 has recently shot to the top of my “to buy list” just because I love the way it looks. Light barrels are sexy on carbine ARs (need a 6720 upper for my SA15.7 too, just because) and I like the long barrel and skinny straight mag.

  • Looks like one of the finest submachineguns of Alternate WWII.

  • P161911

    For some reason it reminds me of the Volunteer Arms Thompson knockoffs.

  • William Nelson

    Oooo…makin’ me tingly. Love this look.

  • r h

    i miss wood on firearms..
    it just feels better under your hand then any metal or poly thats come along since..
    wood feels like holding hands with a friend. metal and plastic feel like grabbing a hammer out of the tool chest..
