I thought I'd start this forum off with a picture thread!

Here was the first build George did for me, a Mk18 style:

Here is the build he did for my recently. It's a BTE free float tube, receiver height railed gas block, tanker charging handle, ejection port cover and soon an adjustable trigger.

I had BTE build me a custom upper. Specs are Noveske 18" SS barrel with Noveske low profile gas block and tube, Smith Enterprises Break, BTE custom smooth free float handguard Cerekoted in flat dark earth, BTE charging handle, BTE upper receiver with BTE laser engraved ejection port cover. This shoots sub 1" groups at 100 yards with 75 gr ammo.

You've got good taste in scopes.

I actually just put that scope on my .260. I just switched it to a Vortex 2.5-10x32 FFP scope to try out the front focal plane theory. I usually shoot at higher magnifications anyway so I like the Vortex so far.

How is the rail? How heavy is it? It looks pretty cool.

The rail is pretty light. Lighter than my lightweight yhm quad rail I think. I like it a lot. More than happy with it. And the coating is really nice.

Very light. George just puts polymer rail sections on where you want/need them. Nicely Cerakoted too.

I think I want to swap my barrel for a 10.5" or 11.5" and his carbine or mid tube and save even more weight.

And another update on my 11.5". This tube is BTE's newest and ultralight!

I've got a new lower coming for a 16" upper George built. But no pics until I get the lower.

More like a Mama Bear and Baby Bear. So what should be a "Papa" Bear? 20"? AR-10?
