Smile Stainless Ranch Mo-Rod

Is the Stainless Mo-Rod for a 196 Stainless made Of Stainless Steel or Aluminum?

All Mo-Rods, even those with a satin black finish, are stainless steel. As for our custom clamps, we decided to use 6061 aluminum alloy as the material for constructing them. Mo-Rod clamps are CNC-machined, and designed specifically for maximum surface-to-surface contact with the barrel, thus improving the rate of heat dissipation when firing. The design is solid and strong, and also minimizes extra weight. Our figure-eight clamp design is also very aesthetically pleasing.

Thanks for the response. I like your design over the other "rods". How does the finish of the stainless rod and clamps match the 196 series stainless? Can you post a close up pic of the machined end of the rod? What size and type of drill do you use to make the dimples on the gas block?

Like I said, I like your design and price, and have heard nothing but praise about your products and service. I'm not quite sold on the looks of the Mo-Reaper yet but it grows on me with every pic posted with your setup. Ever think of machining the top off of the Reaper?

Ee gad, man?! Decapitate the Mo-Reaper?! LOL

Seriously, the idea in producing the fully cylindrical hood is for function, to provide a shaded front sight picture regardless of shooting conditions. I'll look for some close-up photos for you...

I was thinking more of a 5/8" mill down the center leaving "ears" rather than a full decapitation. More of a hair cut. Actually I think its fine the way it is, just a dumb idea that came to me at the time I was writing that.

...Not a dumb idea at all...We actually kicked it around during the design phase, but we felt the complete hood was a more functional way to go...

I bought the Mo-Rod a while back and it improved my Mini's performance-I like the way it looks too. My Mo-Reaper arrived today and I'll be fiting on tomorrow.
