    First of all, thanks to WMD for helping me out, especially dpixel8 for guiding me, I still wouldnt have a rifle if he didnt tell me how easy all of this was. This is my first firearm BTW.

    Before you all say I should go out and shoot it, I will ASAP. I didnt plan on buying anything for it right away, but the grip is painful. As is the stock. So instead of buying the spikes 22 kit, I have to buy some magpul shit first to make this thing more comfortable.

    I'm thinking CTR stock, MOE handguard with a sling adapter mounted. I dont know which grip to go with, MOE, MIAD basic, etc. I'm going to hold out for the magpul sling to come out just because I like the fact that it goes from single to double point since I havent tried either.

    The only problem is that nobody has everything that I need in one place, especially black grips and stocks, everybody has FDE which I'm trying to avoid on this build.

    what do you mean it's painful? It hurts to hold the rifle? LOL
    Stop being a pussy. Those parts work just fine.

    If your fingers are bruised, it's not from the hand guards. It's from your improper shooting technique.

    I havent even shot it yet...its just the part that sticks out below your middle finger digs into my finger. perhaps it is due to improper technique.

    he doesn't like the bit that sticks out below the trigger

    just replace the grip - it's the cheapest part

    :rofl: you're still on OT brah, and when you're dealing with weapons, you're most likely going to be dealing with manly men, not sissy girls.
    Shit, even the girls that post in here on occasion don't complain about that shit. MAN UP.

    When you're standing around with a bunch of dudes, do you just happen to "mention" your dick gets chaffed when you have sex?
