NHnewbie Posted January 4, 2014 Share Posted January 4, 2014 Did a trial install of some of the stuff I plan to hang on my M4. Includes SideArmor Entry full length rail (with two removable side rails and 8 round shell carrier), Trijicon RX30-23 reflex sight, X400U with XT07 tail cap/switch. This all seems to play together nicely. The cable on the XT07 is just the right length to route over the top rail (through a slot under the sight) with the switch pad mounted on the RH side rail. Makes a nice tidy installation with a minimum of cable hanging out where it can get snagged on something. So far I don't see any issue with this set up, but I havent shot it yet. Weight may become an issue. With the standard 11707 stock and standard mag tube but no ammo, the gun weighs 10.6 lbs. Will get some improvement going to the CC mag tube. Also intend to put a Benelli c-stock on it, but don't know how this will affect weight. For comparison, I weighed my Tavor SAR rifle which is set up almost identically, and it comes in at 10.0 lbs. without mag. So, would lighter be better? Sure. However I wont be lugging this around in the field (except maybe for occasional training) and wont be using it for competition,, so I am not yet too concerned about weight. In any event, I cant see how to get the weight down a lot. Maybe a lb by replacing the SideArmor with a short rail and the sight with a mini red dot like the Trijicon RMR. Will post some pix once I figure out how to do that here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
