Just picked up a .40 barreled upper from a fellow member here for a song. It could be better but it isn't horrible. I believe it has a real HK cocking tube support and handle which is a bonus. Welds could be better and they welded the shell deflector instead of riveting it. Overall I'm pleased for what I paid for it and if I can get it to run right with RCM stuff, I'll be in it for around $1000. Anyway, I'm stripping off all the old paint now. It was painted a fde color which is actually closer to just plain tan. I'll be posting pictures shortly following the stripping and subsequent refinishing that is occurring now.

sweeeeeeet.....just the fix i needed, i'll be back when she's done...:300000000:
by the way, how long is this build going to take you?
Considering I still have to finish the UMP and I have a S&W VTAC on layaway, meh, maybe in September. I just need a .40 recoil rod, bcg, and ejector. Oh and a magazine. I can use a trigger pack from one of my 9mm guns and I have a buttcap sitting around.

Thanks for letting me know Sean. Wouldn't that mean a real HK cocking tube as well? Without it, it won't work right?

Correct. The F spec support won't work in a standard tube. I believe its how the arm catches the hold in the tube. I haven't looked inside my .40 but thats my understanding

Copy that. That's comforting. A little.

Not that you would need one but RCM is almost finished with some .40 trunions. Just like factory.
