Flip up front sight, M4 configuration, removable handle. Wouldn't mind a free floater, but that is what racks up the price, I think.

Pmags are great. I have 2 deployed right now using Pmags daily. But, there are a lot of good mags out there.

1 in 7 is what the .mil uses. Good up to 62gr, possibly (depending on your barrel) 68gr. All my 5.56 rifles are 1 in 9.
I want to shoot both calibers frequently, looks like getting a dedicated upper is the best solution, would you think?

Would 1 in 9 not be good for lighter loads?
