I've posted two topics before about this marker, and you can sort of see the evolution. It began as a run of the mill BT-4 Assault, before being modified the following ways to meet the direction the Canadian Forces was taking their main rifle and carbine:

- 16 inch J&J Ceramic Barrel replacing the stock 14 inch barrel offered by BT
- Green Furniture on the Stock, Grip, Forward Grip, and Handguards
- MIL-STD-1913 rail placed on the bottom of the Handguards
- Elcan Sight (4X)
- Triad Rail System allowing for rails under the gas block (I had to improvise as Triads outside of the CF or Police are rare.)
- Magazine and Magazine Well

The Triad I had to use two short MIL-STD-1913 rails attached to the bayonet lug to imitate, and I chose the Elcan Spectre DR over the C79 because the Spectre has better eye relief, better ironsights on top, and the C79 hasn't exactly enamored itself to me. I did have an EoTech 553, but between the ARMS system and my friends messing around with it, it ended up on my backup, a friend's BT Omega which replicates the original C8/M4.

Future plans are to just scoot the magazine back far enough using a dremel so that it and the magazine frame are basically touching. Let the gas line go through the magazine. Also, I want to do the receiver markings in silver marker.

Poor Attempt at Reciever Markings (Note ironic "Made in Israel" marking):

Very nice work. It's milsim without looking too cluttered or heavy.

I'm a big fan of the C7-C8 series. Particularly the C7A2. A full-length barrel and gas system with a carbine stock is my ideal AR configuration.
