    Hey all, a friend just recently offered to trade his G&P Mk46 for my A&K Mk46. He already has an A&K M249, and I know the A&K has advantages over the G&P, and that the G&P really only has better externals. However, I do care more about externals than internals, dumb as it sounds (being around the real deal will do that to you sadly). I was wondering if this is a good idea. I have two other questions as well:

    1. Can the Ares/STAR Stoner 96 100 round "nutsack" box mags can be used with little or no modification in the G&P?

    2. Can the top rail segment be taken off to have the barrel exposed like in 13 Hours?

    What year is his G&P Mk46?

    And no you can't swap them without tweeks. G&P never collaborated. Ares/A&K did...

    Recent I believe. It has the M4 adaptor (technically makes it a PIP II but w/e)

    If he bought it from Asia in the last 4 years. It is okay.

    If it's older than that...I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole, but w/e...

    Oh so he got it from Evike? Then you "should" be fine.

    I think he might be a second hand owner but it looks new. So I'm going to rule out it being in the pipeline for a while.

    We'll you will know when something hits the charging handle, top cover hinge or stock joint.
