    It is a midlength. Too long to be the carbine.
     
  11. The top and bottom of the handguards should have a series of holes. How many holes are in each handguard? The other way to tell is to measure the length of the gas tube. Off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure my middy handguards have 7 holes on each side.

  15. Odd. Maybe RRA uses different sized holes. It really doesn't look long enough to be a rifle length gas system. Whatever, it really doesn't matter. It's a nice rifle, and you'll have a lot of fun with it. :bigthumb:

    Where did you get her? I paid about a thousand for my Bushmaster three years ago or so.

    Recently. Did you post them somewhere else? The A2 stock, midlength hand guard, and newer Eotech really caught my eyes.

    Duh. :uh: I frequent so many forums that I have a difficult time remembering where I read and see things.
