M*CARBO Brotherhood

My New M-Series Is Here

Ok, so it’s not REALLY an M series. But it has all the Mcarbo parts now so I’ll call it just that. Took about 2 hours, only because I was really taking my time. The trigger pulls nice, it cycles and feeds the plastic glock practice rounds fine, ejection no issue with those. I’ll make sure to give a range report when I get there. Here’s to hoping she doesn’t explode on me because I screwed something up. Lol just kidding. Everything seems fine. @ChrisNelson, your videos are great. So easy to follow even someone like me who has never gone further than field stripping a weapon can get it done. Thanx.

Chris does put out some good videos as well as parts. Welcome to the dark side. Soon you’ll be looking for ways to improve all your firearms.

@Jperr,
If you’ve already done the trigger kit in the S2K, the Glock will be easy. I just did a Glock 22 and a G27 within the last week. With the Mcarbo springs, the trigger pull weight decreased to below 4lbs. Once again, I followed the video Chris made and polished all the parts. Now, I have springs on order for my Ruger 10/22’s and my SKS.

@Jperr Joseph you little numbskull you absolutely sucked me in with the title of your post! Dag nabit man!

LOL - you got me. :grin::+1:

That said I enjoyed seeing your pics, smithing S2Ks is kinda addictive…maybe because their so cheap folks are more willing to be daring?

@Jperr, Ditto, me too. But I’m telling my wife this one is for her.
Wish someone could say for sure if they planned on an M series in .40 cal.
I have a fully mcarborized 9mm glock s2k to go with my 9mm glock pistols, sure would like a .40 M series to go with my .40 glock pistols.

@Texprep, I wonder the difference of size consideration vs cost of build on a manufacturer’s view point @ChrisNelson. There are many considerations when designing a product. I am sure that Chris is having those concerns when keeping the M*CARBO Brotherhood in mind? Definitely a lot of concern on one’s shoulders? That is why it is so imporant for the brotherhood to stick close together and communicate in the best manner! I know that I am a ‘culprit’ at times when I am forgetful and get caught in some of those political ‘jargon’ moments… :thinking::+1:

Been waiting for this…How do i preorder?

@Success just call MCARBO customer service and they will be happy to take your $$ :grin::+1:

Sorry I left everyone hanging, as I was literally heading out the door for my shoot, but Mike got the same info I did from Jacqueline.

I have to admit I am a bit bummed the badge got left off. Also wish had a bit more ability to customize parts I want. (Why pay for items I will be pulling off?) And $695 is okay it is not a great price.

…I am thinking. :hushed:

I sent you a PM with their phone number.

What parts would you pull off this gun? And what do you think would be a good price?

5 Likes

@Success well I don’t want any sights at all so that would go. Also I don’t want the tube cover.

So if I was piecing this together I would pay for the pro trigger job bundle, muzzle brake,trigger bar , and 2FCH for the wife equals $264.80 + $340. Thats only $604.80 If I was to do it from scratch (also sight blocks and thread protectors and brass counterweight.)

:confused:

I was hoping for more mix and match options other than trigger and CH. For some reason I envisioned this as a semi-custom performance center type build. I am going to also go on a limb and ask the question: will KT polish the feed ramp and engagement surfaces on the sear?

Okay…I am going to come out and ask the question (already read the excuses) lol.

Is this the weapon and the price we were waiting and hoping for?

@Johnksg, You wouldn’t add the feed ramp and polishing kit to your build? I would think the way your classes will be running and gunning with these that replacing that plastic feed ramp would be a must. As far as price, it’s about what I expected if they are polishing the internals like most of us have done to ours. Labor isn’t free. I too am a little disappointed that they didn’t add a special logo of some sort designating it as an M series and/or a tribute to veterans or LE/first responders. Guess time will tell how many persons will want a turnkey fully loaded S2K and how many will keep doing as most here have done and customize them with what we want. I will still buy one, but I’m gonna wait a bit and see if they will make some in .40.
