My "HD" Gun
Nothing like a little gun porn, right?
This is a Colt 9mm SMG w/ all my tacticool gadgets attached. They are: Trijicon 2.5x "mini" ACOG; Surefire 95 series weapon light w/ flip-up IR filter, Knights Armament vertical foregrip, The Wilderness sling, Eagle Industries mag pouch with neck strap.
Stoked with 124gr Hydra-Shok, with 120 or so rounds on tap, it's good for what ails ya' out to 100m or so. Enjoy.
That is sexy! I'll give ya $500 cash for it right now! :danceban:
Heck, make it 600 and I'll throw in the Sig! :)
Is it the "full auto" or "burst" model?

I have a full auto suppressed MP5 that is the sweetest shooting SMG I've ever fired. Set me back a pretty penny, but woth every bit of it. I see you're in Brazil. How much equivalent USD does the Colt SMG go for there?

No idea. Based on the gun laws here, it would be nearly impossible to buy one legally, for any amount of money.

No worries. I can have a range report in tomorrow if anyone's interested... :)
OPFOR, where's the Cuisinart? :wink:
Seriously, that's a great looking outfit and I'd be interested in reading a range report. :hand10:
OK, another blatant rip off of ccw9mm's range reports:
Colt 9mm Submachine Gun: Range Report #1
This SMG has been around a while, and has who knows how many rounds through it. It is well maintained, however, and I have thoroughly inspected and tested it (and put a few hundred rounds through it myself).
Gun – Colt Model R0635 (full auto version) 9mm SMG with 32rd magazines, 2.5x ACOG, Surefire weapon light, KAC vertical foregrip, and The Wilderness three-point sling.
Purpose – Qualification and “tactical” training with other LEOs responsible for internal defense of our building.
March 23, 2007 – Third time I’ve had this weapon out, first range report.
Rounds – 350 rounds of 124gr NATO mil-spec.
Goal – Perform Agency required qualification, ensure optics are zeroed and appropriate for anticipated engagement distances, ensure function and reliability.
Initial Field Strip and Cleaning – Performed a basic wipe down of major moving parts, light lubrication where necessary. I had detail-cleaned the SMG after the last session, so another full working over was unnecessary.
Problems During Field Strip -- None
Feel – Like an old friend. Anyone familiar with the M16/M4 series will immediately know this weapon as soon as they pick it up. The controls are the same, the grip is the same, the sights (A1 style) are the same. It’s just lighter and more compact, and the mag is a little skinnier…
Grip – It is what it is. If you’re comfortable with the AR series grip (and I am), you’ll be right at home. If you aren’t, then you won’t be swayed by the SMG version…
Magazine Eject Button – Nothing new here, either. The mags drop free easily, though extra care must be taken to ensure that they are fully seated when you first insert them.
Ergonomics – Love them. Of course, I’m biased, but the AR platform is second nature to me. The 10.5” barrel, short OAL, and general ‘workability’ of this weapon suit me to a ‘T’.
Shots – 350rds of 124gr NATO ball.
Aim – POA = POI at 25 meters. Slightly higher closer in, a little low at 50, lower still (but still in the torso if I aim at the sternum) at 100.
Ejection – Strong, consistent, thrown about 10 feet straight out to the right.
Slide Action – Charging handle is easier to operate than on a 5.56 version. Relatively smooth, no hesitation or binding.
Jams/failures – Not a one..
Holstering – Not applicable, but it will just barely fit into my CamelBak BFM. The Eagle “discreet” case is great, though I’m not sure how discreet a black, padded, rectangular nylon bag is…
Cleaning after shooting – Full detailed cleaning, as always. Nothing unusual noted.
Overall Impressions: While I still prefer the M4, this weapon is growing on me. It is reliable, accurate, very controllable in short bursts, has a high mag capacity, fires an inexpensive round, is VERY easy to carry, is extremely quick to maneuver, is compact, relatively quiet, and so on and so on. Performing multiple target drills is a snap, as the muzzle is so easy to move. Transition drills are equally easy, owing to the very short OAL of the weapon, and the fact that it doesn’t get hung up as easily when “shoved off” to the slung position. Double taps and two-to-three round burst COM hits are boringly easy from 25m in, and head shots are a piece of cake at 50 and doable (especially with the ACOG, which is a beautiful piece of kit for a weapon like this). All in all, it’s one of the most “fun” weapons I’ve been around, and it will absolutely get the job done within its intended roles.
