Cool Super awesome L119A1 AND C8FTHB (Chad's G&P woc GBBR build)

Hey all, it's been a long time coming but I am finally nearing the end of my hoarding of parts. Here is a little sneak peek for now, I apologize for the quality of the pics but it's just parts, no need for models.

Feel free to offer any suggestions, comments, complaints..........whatever

Some of the important parts:
Saber L119A1 M4 GBBR body.
Real deal C8 handguards.
L119A1 STEEL outer barrel for WA 16"
G&P AN/PAQ4-C
UTG 5 position foregrip
TRIAD


(internals are G&P WOC full assemble kit and I have a random 3 round burst kit that came with ambi selector. Inner barrel is G&P WOC with chamber and hop up. I have no idea where the triangle sight and gas tube came from but it's nice, I think it's G&P.)


and now for something completely different......so wtf was this artist on? This was at a local Wings-up.

I know you already grabbed the UTG... but Hamilton Tactical has the actual Cadex Grip on sale, if you so desire.

I'm finding oneshot still takes the prize. Glad I found the cadex folding grips though.

Also, if you need the sling plate adapter... I don't know how WAs are for fitting RS, but the RS sling plate adapter can be found at Brownells for about $23.... cheaper elsewhere but I've never been able to figure out how these guys charge me $6 bucks for shipping and have stuff to my door in three days.

Alright, thanks, this is helpful.

Alright, thanks, this is helpful. Does anyone know if a 16" barrel is from end to end, or from receiver to end?

hey Chad, How is the build quality of the metal body and how is it preforming in your gun. I've have poor results with metal bodys that are ACM. Im planning to build a c8a2

Usually for RS mesurment the manufacturer go from one end to the other including the barrel extention but excluding any nuzzle device

Couple of notes...

1. I've learned CADEX grips are cheaper at MD Charlton than they are at Hamilton Tactical. I picked mine up there for about $40.00, plus they also had the CADEX rails for about $33.00.

2. The C8FTHB/C8A3 heavy barrels for some reason are actually 15.8 inches long. I remember someone saying it was so they couldn't be sold easily in the United States (SBR and all) but yeah.

Is this the MD Charlton you refer to? Will they sell things like the CADEX grip and rail to civie types?

Edit: I just noticed they have a retail store in Mississauga so I'm going to guess that's where you purchased the grip?

Thanks and cheers - Dan

Yep, that would be the place I purchased mine. I ended up posting both up in the BST for the price I paid for them... as much as I liked them I like running a barebones setup more.

So I hit a couple snags.....

I have been trying to get a lower that I can strip down aand get engraved but I keep coming up empty handed......
I even bought a pretty much complete WA and when I got it, realized one of the previous owners broke both trigger guard tabs and then superglued them back on.....so I'm pretty well stuck now without the lower to complete this.

So.....anyone knows of somewhere I can get a G&P WOC or WA spec body without deep engravings..let me know!

The forward grip I am going to obtain at last minute, I may go with the stubby one from one shot.
The good news is that I'm going to have enough for two rifles, an SFW and a C7 variant.

Thanks for the confirmation. I would like to pick up a CADEX grip and rail as I intend to put together a C7A2 someday.

Cheers - β
