    XM3 DARPA Build

    I wanted to share my build which is heavily inspired by the XM3. I didn’t attempt a full clone because there have since been developmental improvements in calibers, optics, parts, and materials.

    Got tired of shooting F Class in open with my 260 just completed an M40A3 for 600yr FTR
