The coolest AR rollmark.

Back in the day when we only had a handful of companies making AR15s, I remember seeing countless discussions on the gun forums over which company had the coolest rollmark.  For example some people loved the Stag logo, other people really hated it.  Some people even claimed to see the image of two touching penises in the Spikes Logo.  (I know a guy who sold all his Spikes Tactical rifles after I told him about that)

Well, I suppose this one is engraved and not a true roll mark but I think this is the coolest rollmark available on the market right now.  You can buy a buy a Colt Rifle that is marked “Property of the U.S. Govt M4A1 Carbine”

Manticore Arms NightShroud MK II Flash Hider

Just picked up a Manticore Arms NightShroud MK II Flash Hider for testing with the DDI AK74S. These are actually very hard to find right now. The Manticore Arms NightBrake is very easy to find, but I wanted a flash hider, as the 5.45×39 round does not have a lot of recoil, so a muzzle brake is not needed. The NightShroud looks pretty damn nice. It has a 24mm (Right Hand Thread) standard for most AK74 rifles. It will work with both 5.45×39 and 7.62×39  rifles with 24mm threads. I really like the multiple detent locking notches around the NightShroud. The detents allow a nice tight fit, eliminating any wobble.  It is also quite a bit shorter than the standard AK74 muzzle brake  Here are a few quick pictures of it mounted right out of the box.
