New review of rail system from M14 SOCOMs.

Free Float RIS for M14 SOCOMS from Evike.
Here's the link:


Ok so let's face it - we all like the M14 EBR - it's just a good looking gun. But there are a few issues. If you want to keep the cost down, you buy the KART version and it works, but it's hard to upgrade and it's just not as nice as some of the others out there. The Classic Army - nice but heavy, and not too cheap. G&G's version - lighter but expensive as well. And then you have some very expensive options out there as well that come in kit forms. So what do we do?

Well, here's one option. Turn your M14 SOCOM into a nice AEG with a SWEET rail system. I got this guy from Evike for review and I've got to say I love it!

What do you get? You get a RIS that has a full rail up top, about a 2/3 rail on the bottom, and 1/2 rails on both sides. The left side rail is at 90 degrees to the top, but the right hand side rail is angled at 45 degrees - unique and great for lasers and flash lights.

Installation is simple - it slides right over the top of your gun, so no need to take off a fore grip or make any major modifications. Simple to add on. It's also light-weight since it's made of aluminum, so that's a bonus too.

Here you can see it with a G&P red dot and a Magpul AFG.

I don't know about you guys, but I love the way this looks. Evike sells a CYMA M14 SOCOM customized with this called the "Devil" - here's the link:

Overall, I'm giving this guy a 9. The ONLY thing I'd change is to make the rails a little longer on the sides, but other than that - major win.

Navy SEALS Museum

Hey CQB Radio fans,

Over the last week I had a chance to visit the Navy SEALS Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida while visiting some family. The link to the museum is below, but check out some pics from the trip.

A bunch of cool pics of real steel as you scroll down -M249s, M4s, and more.
