M4 Magazine Tube Titanium option

Recommended Posts

I have been lurking and learned a lot since purchasing my M4 a few months ago. Today I installed one of SOCOMguy’s (of this forum) 7 round mag tube today. When I first got a hold of him he had several black ready to roll out the door. I wanted to match my Titanium Cerakote, so he had a custom coating done and the color match is PERFECT. I just wanted to post a few pics so anyone looking at their options can see what it looks like installed.

The install went smooth, thanks to being prepped with information found here. I also added the FFT forends and follower for 922R compliance. I think it took longer to get the FFT forends on than to change the magazine tube (about 20 min.). Then thanks to the instructions on FFT's site, I put the forward ends of the forends in first and installation then went smooth. I think they should put the install tip in the bag with the parts !

Looks good! Joe is a great guy. I ordered a tube from him and it is really nice. I ordered a heat gun to assist with the removal of factory tube, but read somewhere a blow dryer did the same thing so I gave it a shot and 15 min later it was off and new one was on. Needless to say in my case, didn't need the specialty heat gun.

So glad I saw this post. I got mine about a week ago and WOOOOOW. The match is incredible and it is just great quality. I can t imagine find a better tube than this one. It has to be very hard to get a perfect match on these tubes but I can t imagine the H20 ones getting much better. I am thoroughly impressed with the H20 one I got.

Definitely one of my tubes.  I have a small shop operation, limited quantity, high quality. Helping a few guys on this forum with reasonable price tube is good .... enriching a shady third party, not good!

Joe

Another ? for Joe (SOCOMguy). I bought one his 7rd tubes and it matched the black perfectly. 
 

And his communication and customer service are second to none. He was even willing to fix a mistake I made when installing the tube. Let’s just say I shouldn’t ate that popcorn! Luckily he walked me through the steps to correct and I couldn’t be happier!
 

Great price, great product! 2504DBDE-6D6E-49D4-BCB1-59AACE436AA0.thumb.jpeg.2843ddcece3ced197e7b4f1cce499477.jpeg

How much are they(H2O)?  I sent an email and waiting on reply.

Are you using oriiginal spring with his tube?

Thanks,

Russ

Joe actually recommends using the existing 5rd spring, which I did. I ran about 100 rds so far with the 5rd spring in the 7rd tube, and no failures. 
 

Thanks, Garza
