    The TNA Super MLOK is a clone of the JL Billet handguard without the 45 degree front slant and at a much lower price point. I bought a JL Billet AR10 and a AR15 version a few years ago and love them. The company is also veteran owner and operated. Anyway the AR15 version is going on my build today.

    I was going to originally put it on my WK180C but then I bought a receiver set and needed to budget the MS build a bit and since I already have that hand guard it’s going on there, the TNA hand guard feels nice and light the design seems fine for this build and unlike some other hand guards won’t need any machining to make it fit so that makes it even more appealing to me

    I find the AR platform is awkward in engaging the bolt hold open when you want to do it quickly... such as when you get a jam in a rifle match...
    If the right hand is holding the grip and the left hand is pulling the charging handle, you're short of a second left hand for the normal bolt open on the left side...

    Install is real simple. Just continue milling the slot across (you can drill and file...), touch it up with Aluminum Black... and install it like any other hold open lever. I've converted all my ARs to PDQs and have NO regrets !
    Cheers
    Did you look at the Smith Lightning Bolt? I'm going to try it when my receiver arrives.

    That looks like a cool accessory, what’s the price on those?

    Just USD$54 at Brownells. I'll post my results once my MS is put together.

    So there was a large number of people looking into doing a 22lr upper for their sporters.

    We did up a prototype/photo project to explore this using both a JP dedicated 22lr system and a CMMG dedicated system (which we're still waiting to arrive.....).
    The JP system was what we used for a bunch of the photos and it got dressed up pretty well.

    Anyways, we are no longer in need of this show piece. It has been test fired for function and photos, a total of 60 rounds of premium clean 22lr ammo, fortunately for the new buyer we can say the best results are with CCI subsonics. It has a 19" barrel, that is marketed as 18" as one inch sticks back into the receiver so gives the 'look' of a standard 18".

    It has a Midwest Industries G3 Handguard, Cerakote finish on the barrel, and a custom shroud style false suppressor and false gas system. This is built on a slick sided modern sporter upper with the big-bore port. Retail on this is about $1900. In lieu of there being 60 rounds through it, and a bunch of pictures taken, we're taking $100 off, so the price is $1800.00 non-negotiable, shipping, tax, etc is the buyers responsibility.

    Email info@albertatacticalrifle.com or call us at 403-277-7786 if interested.

    I remember reading about the RCMP interpretation that a 22 LR barrel still had to be 18.5" or greater on this reciever set.
    Does this still apply of it is a dedicated barrel?
    Could 22 LR be added to the FRT to allow the use of shorter barrels and remain NR? (of course still cognizant of OAL) I assume it was due to being a center fire reciever set?
    Am I just asking for trouble?

    We have had mixed communications from the RCMP on that (including the information that you stated), but it is a project we are still pursuing. Right time, Right place, Right wording.
