    This is my second AR, my first is an Olympic HBAR and the new one is another Olympic M4 16". I just added some Magpul furniture.

    It will be getting an ACOG shortly. The other pic is my daily carry, a Springfield XD9.

    My only complaint is it is not a chrome lined barrel but with care it will be fine. Today they are harder and harder to find and the price was right so I got it.

    I've had no other concerns with either of mine. My HBAR is chrome lined.

    chrome lined is not that important. I much rahter have a light weight contor and a wylde chamber but I need a AR to to make sugical hits at speed. Not fight in some jungle or god forsaken place of the earth.

    Barrel Length really doesnt matter for conceal carry unless its just something ridiculous. Its mostly grip thats hard to conceal, people carry full size 1911's pretty easy and I can carry a 5" Springfield

    i understand that, i said fullsize specifically because of the grip length, i have a 4" fullsize XD and didn't think it'd be that good for CCW work, but if it works for him, i may try it

    I don't carry daily with the light, I keep the light on at home and while in my truck. I have an IWB no name leather holster that I carry at 6 oclock and without the light it conceals just fine. I don't wear baggy clothes and I'm average sized, 5'10" 170lbs.

    I like the capacity of the fullsize.

    I don't mind it. I have carried a sub-compact as well and it is just as comfortable.
