Magpul CTR. I'm getting one as the standard collapsible isn't working for me.

I like that one! It's a clean, simple setup. Perfect for a patrol rifle without junk hanging off of it.

My new SBR

Almost done. Had her out to the range twice now - runs like a top. Handier than a two-peckered goat. Also accurate as heck (can't miss the 8" plate at 100 if I tried - OK - could if I tried hard). Love this thing. Shoulda gone SBR years ago.

PS - I have painted the EO and light now, so don't worry. Will have a VFG and front BUIS this week. Looking for a sling I like.

Nice looking shotgun, but shouldn't the CTR with the buttpad be on the shotgun? I like that reflex on the shottie, too

I've got a pad for the shotgun. I recently put the ctr on and hadn't shot it yet. I just wanted to try it without first.

The reflex is a much better alternative to the CMore that I have for the shotgun.

BTW...I only fire a couple of rounds, at the end of the session, with the lights mounted at the range. I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong impression .

MALL NINJA! I usually have mine mounted, just because it keeps me being used to the feel of the weapon (not to mention one is an M900, so i lose my vert grip if i remove it).

Then again, I shoot at private property most of the time, so I can do all the mall ninjaness I want without fear of GT backlash. But I don't. I swear. umm.. er..

Ah, proud new owner of an Olympic Arms. Havn't even cleaned the factory grease off her yet.

Not the finest in town, but it's mine... (Sorry for poor quality, taken with my camera phone)

Thats my reach out and touch someone AR.It's a new build that I finished this week. Hope to use it at 600 yrds. The scope is a Nikio-Stirling 8-32 x 44 with a 1/8th moa target dot. It's not that long if I take off the 3" sun shade.

Where did you purchase the pistol grip to replace the A2 grip
? I am thinking of purchasing one myself. Thank you.

Ooooh she's pretty. Stick, is there much benefit to the VLTOR upper? I mean it looks badass, but as far as operation? I almost ordered one last time Teknic beat up my Visa.

The Vltor billet upper is a heavier duty unit that has reinforcements built through out. It is also cut from a billet as opposed to a forging, so its dimensions should be exact, instead of just really close. There are people who feel that the billet is a superior upper for precision work due to its perfection with the billet. I'm not sure how much realistic gain can be expected in that arena.

For most people, its a matter of having an upper that looks different, or they can say is a billet.

Below is a picture of my Vltor upper on a SunDevil billet lower. POF is also making a billet lower. I've got some pictures of those I should try to post as well.

Stick, really dumb question: what is that style flash arrestor? Brand? Is it designed to send the sound down range? Looks large compared to all other choices, so I ask these dumb questions. Thank you! Windplex

Stick you are correct about asking the question if billet has REAL
WORLD and Practical-use advantages over forged. I can tell you what you likely know: that billet items benefit from consistently dense billets they start with and are stronger provided the design is the same. Of course if design is also bolstered in areas for extra strength then a CNC billet product will be that much stronger. Billet metals are usually stronger than forged and have less imperfections.

The question for us is whether we need the extra robustness or are the forged proudcts perfectly sufficient -- the latter is true for me and your mileage may vary.
