16" ???

SPR is an overloaded term, but in general, one of the more famous one is the Crane's Mark 12 Mod 0/1 SPR. And most of the time "SPR" is used to refer to 18".... not too many people will call a 16" SPR...

Here is the story behind it: http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.htm...f=134&t=141410

Yes that's correct but recently I've met up with more and more LE sharpshooters with a shorter 16" Urban SPR type of set up. Because of that I wanted to leave that option in so we can get an idea what SPR builders are doing these days.

btw, great set up you have there,

Can you point out which departments are using ARs as "sniper" rifles??? That's new! Personally, I would be worry about using an AR in a hostage situation.

16" Urban SPR <- yet another new term.... :rofl:

If you want a 16", "accurized & scoped" ar, most will call that a "RECCE".... or the SEAL Recon Rifle....

I wouldn't personally consider an AR15 as sniper rifle neither and a shorter 16" Urban "SPR type" is not trying to set a new term its just what I've came across in the past couple months. As for what departments are using ARs for "Sniper rifles" I have no clue, but as for LE officers I met training on 16" Scoped ARs as well as 18" SPRs well Maricopa county here in AZ as well as Clark county in NV.

Here's mine:

"Lets see your 5.56/.223 RECCE & SPR"

RECCE - 16"

SPR - 18"

IMO.....

aplinker 06-10-2009 5:14 PM

No, none of those are SPRs.

Nice collection, though.

SPR is a shortened rifle-gassed M16

RECCE is a lengthened carbine.

Both are accurized and scoped.

Sure, you could call almost anything one or the other, but intent has to be there.

yea... good point. i should take those off.

Barney Gumble 06-11-2009 8:49 AM

I think I see what you are trying to do (deploy irons without removing scope), but you're better off with a one-piece mount. With your currrent setup a proper cheek weld will require adjusting your cheekpad when changing from scope to irons. With a QD one-piece mount it's a lot faster to just remove the scope. Also you'll be able to use published bullet drops since your scope will be at the right height.

Anyway, back to pic thread...

keep them coming guys! There are some nice rifles here.

tacticalcity 08-16-2009 12:37 AM

A 16 inch SPR? Sounds like you're really talking about a Seal Recon Rifle. MSTN made a lot of money making civilian versions of the rifle the boys over at CRANE invented. Great rifles. I built one early on when very little information on them was available. Sold it a while back to fund another project, but I plan on building another one someday.

Booshanky 08-16-2009 9:49 AM

So wait, I could just make my rifle an SPR if I added a scope to it?

Am I the only one who thinks these designations are silly?

Here's my rifle,

And here's a friends rifle, which I think meets the so-called "SPR" designation.

It's not just any AR with a scope.

Pac,

You know I hate to throw you under the bus and all.....
Wrong collar. Even if you were going for something OPS other than the 12th (that's correct for that build, 12th.)...you're off. The gap from threads to 20 degree taper, it's too far. You ever make it out this way....I'll let you thread mine on that bad boy.

Your collar is for the 14th, 15th, 16th, and M4-s...

pacrimguru 02-06-2010 10:16 PM

ah, thanks for the info tech. ops inc has been out of stock of the 12th brakes and collars for quite some time and i finally got a hold of these from a seller on arfcom. he said that this was correct for my build. being that i've never seen any other ops items up close, i didn't know the difference - but i did notice it looked a bit long. i'll have to change it out when i can get a hold of one.

technique 02-06-2010 10:28 PM

I'll stay in touch...I'll track one down for you this week. I have been meaning to do so anyway....I bet I can get you one faster than Ron. ;)

I'll see what I can do, I may even be able to dig one out of my box o' parts...

Omega13device 02-06-2010 11:25 PM

Technique...not sure if you know the answer to this but thought I'd try...how many set screws does the OPS INC collar normally have? The reason I ask is, I got a brake and collar on an upper I bought and the collar has three set screws. In all the pictures I've seen, the collars all look like they only have one set screw.
