Getting in early on this one. iPhone pics.
# 381 on the GB list.

Closer than I thought. :-)

I chose a local dealer back when the preorder first kicked off.

Having extensive experience with planning for Disaster Recovery (DR) scenarios, I can tell ya what you expect not to fail will be the first part to fail in most incidences.  :-/
So let's see, I should figure out which parts are the least likely to fail, and stock those instead? Is that what you are saying?  Grin

Yes, exactly, that is what most people do.   Grin

I'm just saying planning a DR/SHTF scenario on buying key parts is not recommended if it depends on a common part, especially something as unique as an MDR.  AR, it'd be easy to find or trade for part such as a lower or upper, at lease a better option than and MDR.

I still recommend that more than one rifle is key to SHTF. It may not be a carry both scenario but having another rifle in your supplies is recommended.

Your option of everyone in a squad (group) using the same rifle is a better option, but unless it's an AR platform that is generally not an option (in a prepping scenario) and even then having a spare rifle is recommended.  "Hey Billy-Bob, my rifle broke can I use yours?  Yes, when I'm dead you can have mine"  LOL.

They should downsize the platform like the AR-10 to M-16.
Getting to old to lug heavy rifles around.

Given the MDR's design, I think that weight savings would probably be less than expected.  You might save a couple ounces by shortening the stock by about a centimeter, but that's about it.  You could narrow the mag well, but I'm not sure how much weight you'll save there.

The primary idea is that each person on my "team" preferably use the same equipment. Theoretically this would make training easier, and yes, if they need to be able to use someone else's rifle because their's is broken/etc., then they know how to use it. And yes, preferably parts would interchange.

That said, I've seen preppers suggest that people buy automobile X and buy another one just like it so they have a spare. Seems wholly inefficient to me and rather costly.


Ideally, the best way to return something that's broken to use is to replace it with a duplicate, so I can see their logic.  However logical, it is not practical to invest $30k+ in another vehicle kitted out like your primary.  Heck, I'd have a pair of Outbacks and a pair of Lotus Esprits in that case!  ;-)

When it comes to weapons, I believe in both breadth and depth.  I prefer limiting calibers for what I would consider "key" firearms, but that wouldn't limit me from picking up the odd duck here or there.  I can more easily justify multiple examples of a given firearm, though it may not have the same glass or other extras as my primary simply due to cost.

Those Dracos barrels look fantastic if they measure up in the real world. It would be very nice to be able to grab one for the SRS and the MDR both. The only problem is when you go and buy a PROOF barrel, they advertise ~$800, but the actual price for one (for the SRS) is like $1,800 because they are only made for one company who then does the chambering and barrel extension installation, etc. Hopefully Falkor has a better way of keeping costs manageable.

What really caught my eye about the Dracos barrel is that they sent a test sample to HP White and had them perform the military temperature test on it.  The test is, IIRC, 390 rounds in less than 3 minutes.  The standard metric is that the chamber and muzzle need to be less than ~1500F.  The Dracos was ~200F.

Couple that with their lifetime warranty on the barrel and I'm very seriously interested.  I'm currently spec'ing out a Falkor Petra in .300WM (with a later purchase of a .300NM upper) and the thermal properties coupled with the lifetime warranty (even if it is "shot out"), to me at least, justifies the premium price.

I'm aware about swapping out the integrated optic for the rail. I don't make a habit of swapping optics, and a replacement scope will be well into the future.

I'll be using the AUG mags, I have no investment in AR pattern mags so it boils down to what I'd prefer to use.

I do understand in regards to the optic, but at this point in time, I'm not worried about it. I'm sure I'll wind up replacing it in the long run, but I would like to have one of the integrated optics for now.

Outstanding choice on the AUG mags.  IMO, they are hands down far superior to anything the AR platform offers.

The integrated optic on the AUG is something that, IIRC, bolts directly to the receiver, it isn't like an AR with a 1913 rail that it attaches to, so there is that additional cost/hassle to consider.
