No time soon, unfortunately. I spoke with the military program managers from both NightForce and Barrett. Both had the same story, there are no current plans to make the SOCOM version (tan) of the NightForce ATACR 7-35x56 available to the public - they are focused on meeting their military contracts. So, I ordered the black version of the scope from NightForce and asked them to anodize or Cerakote the scope to the SOCOM color - no joy. Swatdude1, above, had his Cerakoted - looks great.
The Eurooptic deployment package at the price they were offering it for should have come with that scope in my opinion.

    Yeah I second this. I asked too and was told exact same thing when I ordered the T3 7-35 ATACR. Also, I was surprised to get mine so much quicker and much cheaper than I anticipated. Would be nice to get that Tan/bronze anodize they have which goes really nice with that MK22 color. Wait a couple of years perhaps we’ll see this as a display sale from Euro Optics.

    Does the SP-4002 provide enough clearance with the ATACR 7x35-56 T3? that is what I am looking to get.
    Yes, here is the NF ATACR 7x35-56 with Spuhr SP-4002 on my MRAD MK22. Plenty of room even for the scope cap.

    We’re cutting barrels for these on our CNC for $550. That includes all machining labor on your customer supplied parts. All of the threading and chamber work at each end of the barrel plus flat spots on the extension and lock ring for a 1-3/8” wrench. Pictured is the first one I did on my manual lathe but now we have it in our CNC so the finishes are cleaner. From what I’ve seen the extensions are extremely consistent so I can cut a barrel blank as a prefit for you and ship directly without having your other parts here.

    You got a reamer list? With those flats is that how you’re torquing it to 140ft lbs?? I think that’s the spec off the top of my head.

    I have over 200 reamers right now and I don't have a listing of them. If you need it I probably have it. If not I'll order one and if it's a very unusual cartridge that I'll likely never use again I'll charge a 50% tooling fee. Can't remember the last time I actually had to do that though. Most of those guys supply their own reamers and I have a separate drawer of customer supplied reamers that are only used on their guns. Yes on the torque.

    Also my turn around time is two weeks max right now.

    New MRAD at the 200 yard range today... I need a @pfl338 bag rider for it... without one it's awkward as shit shooting off a rear rest. This one is 6.5 Creed and with M-LOK rail.
    I noticed Barrett is showing a bag rider on their website for the MRAD. I am going to call them on Monday to check them out.

    Yeah, if taking MRAD afield then Barrett's will be lower profile and more compact.

    Looks pretty nice, but for field use, I think I will try the Barrett one. Lower profile and less snaggy. Thanks.

    Hey guys, my MRAD is in the mail, and I wanna get an ARCA Rail for it from Area 419. Mine is the newer one with the MLOK slots on it. But I can't find any good pics to be able to count how many slots are on the bottom rail. Does anyone know off hand how many are there, to make sure I order the right one? Thanks!

    Awesome thanks guys, I didn't want to assume there was 7. So thanks for the confirmation, ordered my rail should be here the day after the rifle shows up.

    Does anyone know if there is a way, or a service to replace the barrel on the SMR version. Asking before I buy as if you can't get another barrel once it's worn.....kinda worthless.

    Thanks

    where is the best place to buy the barrel kits?
    And dose it seem like the carbon barrels are worth the extra money?
