Must be new gun time from seeing those that just bought new ones.
Picked this up this morning.
It's in .223 or 5.56 and comes with 2-30 rd mags.
I just put 2 coats of red mahogany stain and it's still drying.
Can't wait to unleash the beast. :D

Mahogany stain is still a bit tacky but here it is without the tape.

Stain job turned out nice 3T...what color was the wood before ?
It was a plain unfinished light brown.

Did a fade on it to give a more natural look.
Still not finished with the forearm yet, just gives me something to work with.

Here's a video Shooter which shows the forearm as it comes out of the box.

Looks like yours has a different magazine well than shown in the video. Does it take standard AR-15 magazines or some exotic magazine?

That's a Tapco and according to the front page of the owners manual it will accept any standard M16 mag.

I probably won't need any more than the 2 supplied.

Check out the video about the 2:10 mark.

Thanks 3T, for the information.

I can't get that video to play. I think my computer has become a codger and it's time for a new one....:mad:

Pretty cool vid...I like the AR Mag adapter and the Krinkov style hinged dust cover. Good features...

Now, I want one !! ;)

Bought a 30 rd P mag at Palmetto Armory today and it fits perfect in the 85, actually locks in and releases better than the 2 Tapco's that came with it.
Gonna get 2 more next visit after saying the originals were enough. :D
