    Which block do you want to build? Mod 0 or 1? Most likely mod 1 since you said Daniel defense, right?

    Base gun would likely be a G&P MK18 or a similar equivalent (dunno which) by JG or G&G's Combat Machines :eek: if you're on a budget. That would cover the whole base gun. Accesories (to match that exact picture) would be an EOTech 553, PEQ 15, Tango Down vertical grip and M3X laser attached to a dual switch controller (This covers everything!). If you want the can on top, it's a KAC NT4 QDSS.

    You see, I happen to be building a MK18 Mod 0.5 ;)

    Hope this isn't derailing from the conversation, but I guess OP can learn from this ;)

    I'm using a CA M15A4 Sportline base and buying a 10.5 outer barrel for it. I'll be using the KAC can I linked to hide the 363mm inner barrel. For the vert grip, probably a TD shorty. Irons however are undecided. I have both a front triangle sight (from the base gun) and a KAC-esque front iron sight. Rear sights, I have an ACM MBUS Gen 1 and a LMT cutoff. I guess I will most likely be going for a Mod 0 irons and optics with the Mod 1 accessories.

    I am running into problems with my outer barrel though; see my thread for help eh heh. Sorry for kinda-jacking OP.

    The barrel can be any 10.3 or 10.5 length barrel, but the RIS has to be a DD rail. As for how it attaches, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoW-62i6jl4 :cool:

    Yes, it needs a 10.3" (10.5" is close enough).
