    To reduce clutter, any questions can be directed towards myself in the form of private messages.

    So I realized that while I regularly visit real steel forums like ar15 and m4carbine, not everyone does. And after a looong time of creeping I stumbled across the "M4A1 SOPMOD Block II clone picture thread" on ar15.com. On the front page is a list of what Block II consists of. So for others to easily see this, I decided to bring it over! I will include pictures for those who are confused.

    Barrel:
    14.5" M4 or SOCOM contour barrel
    A rifle with a 14.5" barrel will also have a 12" DD RIS II, while a MK18 will have the 10.5" barrel and 9.5" RIS

    Flash Hider:
    Standard A2 or KAC NT4

    KAC NT4

    Rail System:
    Early Block II M4A1s still used the KAC M4 RAS
    [​IMG]
    DD RIS II in dark earth
    [​IMG]
    9.5" RIS on 10.5" barrel

    Vertical grips
    Tango down battle grip in tan

    ACOG SU-237 (TA01-ECOS)

    Older SOPMOD Block I optics (TA01NSN, ECOS-C, older EOTechs) have also been seen on Block II rifles

    Flashlight:
    Insight M3 (SU-233/PVS)
    [​IMG]
    Older SOPMOD Block VBL's like the Surefire M951 or Surefire Scout have also been seen in use
    [​IMG]

    Buttstock:
    standard M4 (both older CAR style and newer "LE" style)
    LMT SOPMOD
    [​IMG]

    Rear sight:
    KAC 300m
    [​IMG]
    KAC 600m
    [​IMG]
    MaTech
    [​IMG]

    Front sight:
    KAC flip up in tan
    [​IMG]
    standard front sight base (if early Block II with M4 RAS)
    [​IMG]

    That's it I believe. Most of these pictures are of Real Steel parts, with as few airsoft pieces as possible to give a good reference.

    Hope this helps!

    I would add that the DDII rail used with 14.5" barrel is the 12" model. Some units use a 10.5" Block II rifle which utilizes the 9" DDII rail (or the 7" KAC rail, same as the 14.5" AR).

    Other than that, I would just move the front sight and rear sight stuff to the same post, and move the pressure pad into the light/ATPIAL section.

    Quite a well built article... The only thing that I think would improve it would maybe be a picture or 2 of completed rifles, maybe at the end.

    Nice job :)

    Would there be interest in other guns besides the above? Like MP7, MK17 etc?

    Ok I am a total newb, but can anyone explain to me the difference between the M4 version and the Mk18?

    I have a G&P M4 and I'd love to start customizing down this road but just been wondering what the difference is.

    Is it just mostly the size of the gun? Ie the barrel lengths?

    Thanks, was bothering me, haha.

    I am looking into the DD RIS system now, just trying to figure out if it will work with my G&P etc and what length's I want to get. Definitely want the Tango Down VFG so just a matter of getting the rail chosen before I slide down this slippery slope, lol.

    You can find everything you asked on the first page and the post YOU quoted except for the price.

    If I was going to build such a thing, going as cheap as possible it would look like this:
    ICS M4: $140
    DD RIS II 12":$65.54
    PEQ-15(red laser/ battery case):$18.89
    Insight M3x:$38.95
    Double Remote:$9.99
    TD vfg:$8.99
    Elcan w/ Dr:$150(yes you read that right)
    Front sight:$8.50
    600m Rear sight:$10
    LMT Crane stock:$20.19
    Ladder rail covers:$9.99

    Total of: $481.04

    *facepalm* The MK18 you mean? Can you guys not do your own research? It literally takes like 30 minutes and you could find all of this stuff by yourself.

    TL;DR. I am not going to spoonfeed you guys anymore.
