Will the Madbull Dragonfire Tactical RIS fit on the KM-16?  I am hoping to get the 16.25 inch version and I know I will have to remove the forward sight, but I am wondering if I would have to do anything else.  Could I do it myself?

Please tell me if you know,

Thanks!!!

It should. I believe it connects to the Delta Ring, just like the JG version.

I don't think you will have to do anything else to it. :)

I'm a little bit dubious with MadBull products recently.  We just found out their new batch of Patriot kit and JP Rifle kit have a different threading with the previous version.   So if you get Dragonfire rail it may have the same threading issue.   I suggest you look into JBU kit.  It's looks the same and it does thread into our receiver.

Be careful,my KM4 had problems with barrel wobble after i installed this kit,which is a 12'5.
im not sure what makes the barrel wobble,as i completely torqued the D-ring down,but i think that it has a little bit of space between the little locking collar and the actual outer barrel.

Do you think ASGI would let me return it if it didn't fit?  


I would get a JBU but they dont make them as long as I would like and I have read that thay have problems staying screwed on unless you locktite them in, which isn't something I'm willing to do.



Thanks

maybe,im sure you could as long as there wasnt anything scratched or missing.
but call and check to see if they have installed the kit on the m16,it may help avoid a unneeded expense.

So I emailed MadBull, to see if they have changed their threading, and they claimed to have not.  They said that their threading is the same as real steel, TM, CA, etc.  They also think KWA paint got thicker or something.

If if has TM and CA threading, will it work on KWA???

I just talked to Madbull about this today and no, our gun isn't painted.  So it has nothing to do with paint got thicker.
However, we've found a batch of receiver have a slight different pitch on the thread so that's why it's hard to screw the barrel nut on.  If you run into threading issue use the Madbull re-threading tool. It works really good.
