10.3" Modern Day Mod 0 w/ FSB

The MK18 Mod 0 is an iconic rifle of the early GWOT era. Builds like this that have Front Sight Bases (FSBs) have an old school esthetic that we think is pretty cool. We had a "new in the blue bag" factory Colt 10.3" FSB Barrel and got to thinking, "Can Chop Boss cut our LDR1 to fit a barrel/FSB combo?"...So we hit him and up and he knocked it out of the park. Granted, if we were to manufacture a FSB version of our rail, there are some features that would have to be relocated for a production model. But, never the less, we wanted to see if it would work. The Emissary Handbrake is perfect for this build. It allows a solid hook style placement for your support hand when activating the PEQ-15. With the reduced mounting space along the top of the rail (due to the FSB chop), having the Handbrake aids in maintaining a solid support hand grip, even with the PEQ placed where it is.
