    Ok finally decided to build over buying a Colt so wanted to place my order for a BCM 16" Middy and damn.....didn't now they had standard, BFH, and SS410.

    So what are the pros and cons of each? Are most people just going with the standard?

    Ohhh and also came across "Lightweight" now....argh.....so many options :big grin:

    What do you intend on doing with the rifle? Punching paper? Want Mall Ninja Looks? Going to run any classes/training?

    Punching paper along with classes/training. If I come across any competition type shooting I would love to do that. Something to work on my fundamentals as range time at work isn't ever enough IMO.

    For a relatively light shooting tempo, you would really never see the durability difference between standard and the BFH hammer forged, but for the small price difference, I'd go with the BFH.

    I'd go for the lightweight personally.
