Here's my Jack clone finally done with everything I want on the rifle. The reason I went with a clone instead of buying the real thing is, well...because its been pretty much impossible to come by until recently unless you were willing to throw down 3k+ on GB...No thank you! I also preferred a clone because I would have changed out the 10 inch handguard anyway and wanted a hammer forged barrel along with some other minor preferences. Living in the desert I wanted a different cerakote than the nice disruptive grey it comes with to better match my surroundings. I got it cerakoted in dark bronze by Joint Force Enterprises who are the same people who do the cerakote work on the Jacks. They do excellent work and am very pleased with how it turned out. I tried to stay as close to the Jack as possible but had a few different preferences of my own. I actually purchased a Jack Carbine just yesterday from Rainier Arms but that will be going to my wife as it will suit her a little better I think. This clone is the kind of Jack I would have bought for myself. Comments or criticisms welcome

and before you ask "what the hell is that mounted on the rail?"....Its a rail mounted Battle Blade. I just threw it on there because I haven't decided on an optic yet. Thinking about a Vortex Razor HD 1-6x gen 2 but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Sorry about the pics too I'm not a camera guy at all really.

Just a carbine built by BCM with insight from Travis Haley

unprotected sights just don't make sense on a fighting rifle.
