I going to build a couple versions of the Hera CQR

  • A clone of the Mark III SBR used in Tomorrow War
  • A 308 SBR version of the Grey Ghost versionfeatured in Warface
  • Possibly and original Hera CQR

This is the basic rifle that was used in the movie

The overall look of the rifle is correct but I’m not sure about specific parts used such as the Front Hand Guard / Quad Rail, etc



While looking for info on this rifle I discovered this version which I like a lot and may eventually go with


HERA CQR 001.jpg


I doubt it is acurate but I love it

One of 2 versions used in Tomorrow War



However, if you have info about the version used in the movie please post below

Before I made a major investment in this project I decided to buy the basic parts so I could mount them on one of my spare receiver sets to get a feel for the economics of this rifle

I like it for the most part but like others have said access to the safety in hindered by the angle of the grip so you have to work it more like an AK rather then and AR

Here is my test build, now that I know I like it, I'll start to order the parts for my 308 and Mark III versions

Hmm, lots of views but no comments or posts of addition info

I guess I'm the only one that wants to build one of these

I'm following, just don't have anything to add that I didn't say in the gun thread! I want to find a rifle with those grips to see if I like it. It looks cool though. Is this going to be a firing rifle? It looks like the barrel shroud is too short without it being a SBR.

Yes, I'm going to build this one as a tax stamped SBR

The 3D rendered gun is based on a Grey Ghost Precision 556 Receiver set


The test gun I built has a Davidson Defense Side Charger Upper and an Anderson Lower, but it was just what I had laying around

When I build my 308, I will use a combination of a Juggernaut Tactical Lower and Grey Ghost Precision Upper

I will use all the correct parts for the Tomorrow War version

I could not locate a Gen 2 Hera 7” IRS Quad Rail which IMO really add to the look of this rifle

Here is a comparison of the Gen 2 and 3

Even though I could not find a Gen 2 AR-15 rail I did find a 12” 308 Rail so I did some table saw surgery

Here is the Gen 3 rail body with the Gen 2 side rail temporarily attached with double face tape

Once I have the Grey Ghost Upper, I will be able to mod the back end of the rails to match the upper details and then I will permanently attach them with JB weld and 2 blind rivets

I had to do some work on the milling machine to get the Strike Industries Enhanced parts to fit and work in the JT Lower

Don't know if you have instagram Boba, but Xtreme Props, who did the guns for the film posted some pics.

Hope this helps. I enjoyed the film quite a bit. I'm planning an airsoft build, but I have lots of freelance stuff to do first.

ASG makes an airsoft model, it might be easier to start with that one

Plus if you don't use the IRS hand gaurd that comes on it I would pay you handsomly for it :)

Minor setback today

I received the Grey Ghost 556 and 308 upper

I mated the 556 GG upper with the Juggernaut Tactical lower and none of the machined details lined up at all

HERA CQR 011.jpg




However, the GG upper does line up good with a regular Anderson Lower

HERA CQR 010.jpg




So I have decided that I'll build a Tomorrow War Mark IV 300 Blackout using the BCM Parts with the Hera Furniture

And a Grey Ghost SBR in 308 using a modified JT lower

I’ll probably use the 556 JT lower for a 300 Blackout pistol

I’m doing a gun show next week so I should be able to unload some of the extra parts I accumulated for this project
