    Default SBR'd Gray USC

    Just finished re-installing the original barrel that was cut down and threaded to ISO specifications by member @NoScoE30 He also had H&M Metal Processing Black Nitride the barrel which now is a deep lush dark black color. Also added an XS Trijicon Big Dot front sight. I like this site because it's easier to sign in quickly on the white dot plus the hood is metal not plastic. I had the SBR engraving put on the gun's spine where the optic rail normally goes.

    This SBR/carbine handles really well (haven't fired it just yet) even with the silly thumbhole stock. Only downside remaining now is the USCs massively over-sized hand-grip circumference. My plan is to leave this as an unconverted USC. I have a Hera 20 round mag but was too lazy to dig it up for the pics.

    Wow, a relatively minor mod makes the entire rifle much more appealing.

    Don't forget to post a picture of how nice the threads look under that thread protector. :-)

    That thread cap made from the barrel is awesome. Especially since it lines up correctly.

    I have a stock USC that I've been thinking of selling, but these threaded SBRs are changing my mind.

    @viriceman - that is stellar looking! Love the black and gray combo and the Zeiss red dot (amber?) looks right at home! And as @DentedBrass said, the thread protector is a perfect accessory! Is the long mag a ProMag? How have you found it?

    Thanks @kbinmt - looking forward to seeing your own UMP build
    @NoScoE30 - I'll add pics of the finished threads when I get the gun out of the safe again. Good idea.

    Thanks @audiction You know Tom Bostic will convert the Thumbhole stock to something like the pics below (one shown on a USC, the other on a UMP conversion). But the thumbhole stock for me is not a problem either functionally or aesthetically. I actually quite like the look of it. What I hate about the USC is the hand grip circumference - way too big. As far as I'm concerned it makes the USC a lemon. I had an extensive email conversation with Mr Bostic, who is a true artist and innovator, about reducing the grip circumference on a black USC lower. Ultimately he concluded that it simply was not workable and the grip could not be remolded into a more user friendly config. We also talked about attaching a UMP lower grip onto the USC lower, but that's just silly since it destroys an expensive UMP lower. I haven't figured out a non-bubba way to do this. I have a spare gray lower I might just take a Dremel to...
