… now with M-lok. They’re
charging a $15 premium.
This morning, while politely waiting for the gf to wake, I got a wild hair. I’m reinventing my Sub again. It sat out of service for most of 2020 'cause I have been unable to get my optic to track with the mcarbo mount combined first with my factory forend and later as modified to try it with the kel tec aluminum forend. My issue is getting the optic mount plane located exactly.
For clarity, I’m not blaming the optic mount. I believe my factory polymer was overtorqued when Kel Tec temp staffed up for the barrel recall. But I mighta been drinking a little the first time I tried and rejected the red lion forend (pre mlok).
Rewind to this morning. I had actually decided to replace my front sight. I currently run without a front sight and figured on ordering a Red Lion Folder. My plan is to run my optic on an offset which calls for restoring iron sighting capability (my goofy logic). Well Red lion has no sights presently available, but I noticed the 5 characters that read m-lok in my periphery.
So, my sub may return to secondary truck duty soon. It will never be as fast as a Sub with the MCARBO Optic Mount, but after watching @Kona demonstrate speed I am willing to step out of my rush rush criterion (some steel traps may recall my ≤10 sec touch to punched hole at 75yards primary build objective) - I’ll be putting it to the clock, but …
At any rate, I think M-lok is a substantial design improvement. When I purchased originally, I thought the slots should/would have been mlok compatible.
