Tried using the Daniel Defense build your rifle thing at midnight. Barely moved along...that's how many people are signing on to try and get an order in.

Anyway, its cool but it sucks. You can't build an NFA weapon...everything is either 14.5 or 16 inch. I wanted to build a modified MK18, but they wouldn't allow me to select the right barrel length.

Website hardly even works for me when I tried it....can't imagine how many people are on it! Was going to build a "filthy 14". Although in practice that should be a BCM.

Anyone know what would be involved to take my DDM4V2 and turn it into the short barrel mk18? Or is that just nonsense idea?

Check local laws to ensure that you can own an SBR.
Create an NFA Trust or Corporation or send out paperwork to CLEO, get fingerprinted, have him sign off on the Form 1.
Send out lower reciever for engraving.
Send out Form 1 to ATF with a check for $200, wait seven months for it to come back approved.
Send out barrel to be cut down.
Purchase a new handguard (I don't recall what length yours is now, I think it's too long for a 10.3" barrel) and gas tube.
Purchase new buffer/spring combination if you don't get a Switchblock or some other adjustable gas block.
Mount upper/lower.
Enjoy SBR.

You can, but people will laugh and question why you are not running back up sights.

They will then specifically ask "what happens when the battery runs out or the red dot breaks".

Then Tailo will post a picture of a dude that has a hole in his Aimpoint with the caption "this is why you learn to use irons first".

That's all just a guess though.

Haha.. gotcha. So iron sights with the red dot in line like was suggested earlier.. The one thing I don't really get though is the advatnage gained by having a red dot in line iwth irons.. at that point, why not just use the irons? I'm sure this is uber noob question

Or, even better... get the troy armories folding sights, use those instead of the fixed sights on my dd, and then run an aimpoint.. total win right?

Chase, your irons are integrated. They're not just simply attached to the rail, or at least the front isn't. Could you remove them? Yes. Is it a pain in the ass? Yes. If you get the correct mount for a red dot, it should line up nicely with the front sight anyway.

Did you pick it up yet?

Nope... I'm waiting for a call from the shop but it should be this week for sure

Just want to make sure I have it all ready to go. Can't wait to head to my buddy's farm and shoot milk jugs, cans, and other stuff

The 10.3" and 10.5" barrel lengths used on the Mk18s are the most problematic and finicky setups of any DI AR configuration. If they're built right, they will run fine. The problem is that the gas port diameter must match the barrel length. The last thing you want to be doing is chopping down a barrel to get a Mk18 setup, because it will cause problems.
Don't chop the barrel down. Instead, pick up a specific Mk18 barrel and Mk18 rail like the 9.5" Mk18 RIS II.

You can, but it's not recommended. If they are bothering you, swap them out with a set of folding sights.
If you are running an EOTech, keep the BUIS on the rifle. EOTechs have poor battery life and I've seen several go down on the range. Running without BUIS on a red dot is not recommended, but with a sight with a longer battery life, like an Aimpoint or a Trijicon SRS, you can get away with it.
If you're just going to the range for a little bit, it doesn't really matter so long as you bring extra batteries. Just bring the sights so that you have something to use if the optic takes a dump.

So guys, you think Delta3 tactical will ever ship out the orders we placed weeks ago? I just got notification that my 5 non-window pmags shipped from Cabelas and am considering putting them up on GB hoping to make 225-300 on the 5 pack of them.

I don't think they actually will,but I hope they might. Haha. JJ said he talked to him and made him feel good but I'm not convinced he even has any to sell or a date he would expect them.

Delta3 isn't a Magpul featured retailer, so they're likely not going to be high up on the list for distribution. Just a thought.
