    I can relate to the intent, and the emotion that something like that could incite in folks, but it's ghastly. I'm sorry, but that thing is pretty bad.

    There was a thread on arfcom with custom lowers, couple decent looking 9/11 ones, but that one is just horrendous, maybe if it was black but red?

    Mabye it would look better if the engravings were colored in black or something, instead of white.

    I think it would look cool with a set of red furniture.

    Yeah, that's even worse than the first example. What a hideous firearm. Just because it is supposed to commemorate 9-11 it really isn't any better looking than some of those ridiculous DEs that you see "gangsta-ed".

    That red furniture looks :greddy: Reminds me of a little ricer car with all that plastic wire loom that they put on that's the same color as the car. ugh.

    Its a nice thought, but no. The 2nd one would be fine if they didnt add all the red furniture and crap.

    Which is the lower that is on the weapon in the second picture you posted. Like TL1000RSquid said, if it didn't have all that red crap all over it, it's not that bad.

    I only go for that "it's the thought that counts" when someone is going out of their way to get that thought across. When they are making money on it, then it's not just the thought that counts. It's also a piece of merchandise that I have to want. All that red-ricer crap ruined a perfectly good AR.

    If you photochopped that you did an excellent job. That AR looks 1000x better.

    I think the red was put in to pay tribute to firefighters, since their trucks are red. It looks bad.
