Every-man Carbine Project and Setup (Part 1, the parts)

I thought this a good idea for a host of reasons. Not everyone can spend $2000 total on a carbine. Not everyone can have a long rail or the latest optic because of various reasons, so I'm going to setup the most affordable fighting rifle I believe in and would take to a fight and show how I do it.





I'm using a lower that I had, but a good quality lower can be found for $350 or so.

Total- $1390 ready-to-shoot. Stayed tuned for more......

Daniel Defense M4 XV EZI

I picked up this upper for a new project that I'll be profiling here in a few days. Affordable, lightweight, dependable and meets the requirements/restrictions of some agencies and units. If I had to stick with a 7" railed carbine this would be it. The top of the rail is aligned with the rail section on the receiver which aids in mounting anything from optics to lasers, but the rail still maintains the conventional delta ring in the rear and the metal cups in the front by the A post. DD's bomber rear iron, a traditional M4 front sight post, and A2 bird cage comes stock.

Arc'teryx LEAF and Defoor Proformance

Beginning March 2012,  Arc'teryx LEAF division will be providing gear prizes to the top performers in my open enrollemnt classses. This kit will be won, not given, to the students who pass my shooting tests, sometimes cold, and the students who consistently perform well under pressure from the timer and the scoring rings.

I'm humbled that the Dead Bird asked me first to come on board for this idea. Combining the best outdoor gear on the planet with my training is a no brainer. I hope that this will up the ante even more in performance at my classes, and from it we'll get to see and learn alot from each other.
