After so much emphasis on the 416 in the blog recently, I found George’s pics on IG very refreshing (@burt8393). There are some great action shots on there, which feature George’s awesome Block 1.5 influenced build.
Next to the 416, I have to say the Block 1/1.5 is my favourite form factor. One thing I really like about George’s build is he’s chosen to retain the OEM lower. I can identify with that, because the motor angle and mag seating are absolutely perfect. To get the same perfection in those dimensions, you are in SGT territory.
Looking at the paint job, scrim has been used to get a cool net pattern and the lower is dropped in.
George has this to say about the build:
“I’ve always liked the traditional looking M4a1 AR, so built mine to replicate a photo I liked.
Part choices have been kept simple throughout the whole build, to help maintain its usability and functionality.
A perfect all-round gun for me, and the sites I play at.
KAC RAS & VFG
SF 556-212a flash hider
LMT LE stock & milspec tube
Eotech XPS-2 & G23 magnifier
Really the only thing left to do is to swap the STANAG mags for P-Mags.”
Thanks very much to George for words and pics 🙂
