I looked into IUR just now and realized it's too much of an investment now if I replace the totally new an unused RIS+ upper for a IUR, which is another additional $100-200 investment.
Cool... make sure you post some pics when you're done or even along the way!

C8 CBQ Image Reference Gallery

So I decided to add gallery posts as a dumping ground for any and all reference pics of the different C8 / C7 / L119 variants. Today I'm going to start with the C8 CQB version seen in various CANSOFCOM images. Enjoy!

And now the IUR Reference Gallery!

I've added both CQB and longer 16.7" versions because it's really about the rail!

Since this is a C8 & C7 thread Can anyone shed light on a good C79 Elcan replica that is usable on the field? I have A CAM145 (the US version of the elcan) but am looking for a usable C79 that is found on the C7

Thanks ShadowTwoSix!

After combining some studies from ShadowTwoSix and other references from other threads in this forum, this is what my current C8A3 looks like.
My current C8 impression:










Originally I opted for a more conventional C8 look by spraying the CADPAT light green with the original carbine stock and butt pad, but once I upgraded my Multicam kit to CSOR impression, I also upgraded the rest of my gun to more "customized SOF" style. With this I added the 2" barrel extension (haven't made the custom barrel extension yet), Vortex flash hider, used VLTOR stock, and changed the RIS and removed the delta ring. For accessories I used the EOTECH 552 and the PEQ-15. I also wasn't able to get the proper engravings for the fire selector unfortunately, so I think I will redo the CNC someday to get it right. I also not sure how factually accurate it will be to remove the delta ring and use a RIS directly instead.





Feel free to comment and judge and tell me what you think in terms of appearance, accuracy, etc. Looking to hear them!

I don't know if its just the lighting in your pictures, but the green on your C8 looks REALLY bright, I'd try and dull it out a bit more. It's bordering on being neon hahahahaha

^THIS. That's some kind of "Zombie Killer" bullshit colouring you have goin on there..... it's a dull Olive Drab green. I'll see if I have any pictures of my service rifle as reference when I get home....

For a "from factory" C8A3 ditch the rail for proper OD hanguards, while I've seen railed C8, I've never seen issued rail covers on them, and when I have seen rail covers, they've never been green like the standard furnature, particularily NOT THAT green. Ditch the CQBR length, the C8A3 replaced the FTHB, it retained the SFW Profile barrel (Think L119A1). Put on a DIEMACO Triad, DIEMACO BUIS and an ELCAN C79A2 optic. Ditch that lower reciever and get a black one, have the fire marker as S/R/AUTO, have the C*A# marked so that the A3 looks like it was done later (A little out of line) as most seem to have been upgrades and build using existing recievers.

You also best start hunting for Ambi firecontrols of the right type, the correct Ambi Charging handle latch (Can be found, I've had 3 of em over the years, only 1 these days) and the correct Ambi mag release.

Trust me on this, I'm one of the main C7/C8 SME around here. Sadly, I have no pictures, but I had a prett good pre C8A3 "parts repaired" rifle.

Anyone know where I could get the sling mount, or at least one similar?

Thanks.

You looking for the one in this image?



As per the C8 Patrol Carbine Exploded View, it's part#: 09957C-1 PLATE ASSEMBLY W/DOUBLE SLING LOOP
http://www.coltcanada.com/assets/94202c-1ev.pdf

If this is the one you're looking for, it looks like a proprietary Colt Canada sling plate that doesn't show up on it's own in any google searches. Looks like it comes included with the civilian sales SA15.7 & SA20 models as well. So if you know anyone who's picked one up, maybe find out if they're still using that plate. If so, this is the closest thing I have come up with (and they're not that close):

AEG: http://www.evike.com/products/28762/
GBBR: http://www.airsoftcenter.eu/gun-acce...pe-sling-mount

...And the real steel version:
