Ever since that pic went public in December 2013, there’s been discussion over whether the object at the front end of the AAC can is a purpose built glass breaker, or a repurposed scope cover (allegedly used to keep debris out of the can).
The latter seemed a bit prosaic and, after all, Mark Owen had already given his opinion on the depicted DEVGRU HK416 build, which was good enough for many impressionistas:
Now, rumour has it that the RS glass breakers are restricted to the SOF supply chain. In any case, it wasn’t going to be long before an airsoft version emerged – standardised on the PTS AAC M4-2000. However, the airsoft version isn’t an ACM clone. It’s been precisely made in South Korea by an airsofter, for airsofters.
The first batch sold out immediately, but the second batch should be ready in a few weeks time.
It’s composed of 6061 aluminium and looks good to go to me. I noticed Chuck Steyrman bought a few of them from the first batch, and my IG friend ge6toc also obtained one. I think that says it all.
You can soon pick up one of these beauties direct from Kris, the manufacturer: firstname.lastname@example.org
