    Changes from original.....

    - VLTOR stock
    - Magpul MIAD grip
    - Magpul trigger guard
    - VLTOR single point sling adapter
    - removed the two forward sling mounts
    - Magpul Ranger plates on a couple of my mags
    - RRA scope mount

    Original out of the box w/scope mount

    Pretty sure I'm done with it except for just putting thousands of more rounds
    through it :)


    The MIAD grip is pretty cool, fits my hand better now. The stock is more
    secure and has better cheek weld. Otherwise, it's mostly asthetics.

    I'm a little irked by the scuffing the included front sling mount did to the barrel but oh well, it's not a showcar.

    Butters, those are the next two parts I'm buying for my AR build. It'll be a VLTOR clubfoot, though. And you've got the MIAD grip profile that I'd be using, too. Winter trigger guard ftw.

    I'm going with the mid length upper, though.. it looks more balanced to me.

    I meant to order the clubfoot but mistakenly selected the regular modstock.
    It works pretty well and after seeing it up close I opted not to bother sending
    it back.

    And if I had to do it over again, I would have gotten a mid length, but I can't
    really complain. I'll probably build a 2nd AR, but 24", soon to go with it. :hsd:

    did you build that yourself or was it pre-assembled?

    the original rifle was pre-assembled.


    After working with it a bit I wouldn't hesitate to build my own lower, it's not
    that difficult to work with.
