  1. Hmm, I don't know dude. As the goal is to achieve centurion I don't think something like that would/should pass. Its a clear error that makes it screen inaccurate. I see this as being no different than had the manufacturer put on a singlepoint scope instead of a M38/32/19 scope, an omitted "D" ring or wrong screws being used on the TD. For basic it be ok, for expert maybe, although like you it would still bug me. But for centurion status I'd say a definitive no. Again this is purely my opinion so a *very* big YMMV on this. Hopefully a DO within the program will provide some guidance.
  2. a couple of things that jump out at me are the t-tracks seem short and the rail to which the scope is mounted is short as well. The front should extend passed the mag well into the first vent hole. If memory serves the rear of the rail mount should either be attached directly to the rear sight or if bent downwards as it seems to appear in your pics should be about 1cm or so away from the rear sight and not flushed against it. The scope is way too far back. I don't think the charging handle should be silver. I'm curious as to how the face of the counter looks like.
  3. Don't think it was an issue with the mic as I had the setup work with both of my iphones. It was only when I replaced the iPhone with the iPod that I had issues when using the KV splitter. My StarTech setup does not need an adapter as I believe my mics are mono.
  4. Ok, so I had mixed results. With the KV splitter it worked flawless with my iPhone 6 and SE both wired and wireless. However the cable did not work my with iPod Touch 6 gen. I bought the StarTech sugested above - https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-headsets-separate-headphone-microphone/dp/B004SP0WAQ/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&keywords=startech.com%20headset%20adapter&qid=1494889503&ref_=mp_s_a_1_1&sr=8-1 and it worked without issue with my iPod with a wired mic. I didn't test with the wireless setup. When I have a chance I'll test with my iPhones even though its already been reported as working.
  5. Thanks Mike. I suspected as much but figured Id err on the side of caution and ask. Will likely go with the recommended as it would allow me to go wired or wireless.
  6. Apologies if this has been asked before. the recommended KV splitter is this one.. http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-2trs-ecm.htm But the web site suggest this other cable for mics with batteries.. http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-2trs.htm Would I use the second one if I were to pair it up with this wireless mic? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M7RNBLK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Based on the site descriptions that seems to be a correct assumption but wanted to see if anyone here has a similar setup and if so verify which cable they used. For those running this/similar wireless setup - have there been any latency (or other) issues?

    Take a look here. Oddly enough there isn't one on BSN, (at least I couldn't find one) http://forum.501stspecopsdet.net/index.php?/topic/4295-shoretrooper-vendors-armor-and-weapons/

    I honestly think you made out better by getting OD straps versus the BDU camo pictured.

    I picked up some similar ones in OD - for what it's worth a I believe you got the correct ones. http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-GI-LC-2-Field-Alice-Back-Pack-Frame-Shoulder-Straps-Rucksack-Quick-Release-OD-/191970258197?hash=item2cb251ad15:g:l~YAAOSwZVlXpNCn Finally made your way to Nakano?

    Have you checked out the shops in Nakano (Broadway)? There's 2 or 3 stores on the 2nd or 3rd floor. You wont find the frame but you may find the canvas pack.

    Knowing how shipping can add up I'd go with getting everything from one source - remember to contact them to ensure they include the insert. At this point the guy has received enough orders that if you tell him you're doing a SW backpack he'll know what you mean. Yep, back in the states for now - we left Japan about 3 months ago. Glad to be back but we do miss it.
