These are all looking good.

You guys think I should go with the bicycle inner tube trick to hold on my pressure switch or just get a tango down rail cover with a pressure switch?

Also have been looking at the larue index clips because they have the wire routing option also but I gotta get a new pressure switch for that method unlesss I want to hook it up with double sided tape.

The inner tube works great and you can get old tires for free.

+1 for the innertube... I initially tried the sticky back velcro but it didn't stay sticky for long. The innertube is working great for me!

I just hate pressure switches in general.

Me too. I got rid of mine (issued) as soon as I could.

We currently have an approved list. General orders are about to be changed to allow almost any AR to be carried.
Currently this is my patrol carbine

I think that remote pressure switches are overrated. If you have a higher end Surefire product like an M500 or M900/M910, that's a little different, but a lot of the remote switches, ESPECIALLY the aftermarket ones that I have seen leave a lot to be desired.

The surefire one I have is pretty BA, I must say. Aside from the price, I have no complaints

I carried a department issued colt for a while. Nothing but problems. Lost faith in the gun. Bought a 6920. Same thing. Nothing but problems. Sits in a safe now and comes out for plinking. Don't trust my life with it. Finally built this to use. Several thousand rounds later not a single hickup.

Hmmm you must have had the worst luck ever with the pony's.... I have three (LE6520, LE6721 & LE6920) in the safe and used to have a Department Issued one. All have been 100% reliable with the only issues being operator error (gloved paw in front of ejection port) or bad magazines. My brother also runs a Colt LE6920 thats been 100% too although he's not a high round count shooter like I am.

Anyway here's mine. Just finished the upper about 12hrs ago.

Upper: Colt M4 Stamped, Troy TRX Extreme Rail 11", ARMS #40L BUIS (I like the CQB notch on them), Magpul Front BUS, DD 1/7 M4 profile barrel, M3X Weapon Light (Was free or I'd go LED), Magpul AFG (might scrap this for more weight savings). Soon to have EoTech placed on it after my next range trip.

Lower: Colt LE6721, VLTOR Mod Stock, VTAC Sling, MIAD Grip.

Cop Talk

This is the old Upper LE6721 1/9 HBAR DD Omega Rail EoTech and M3X. This pic is a year and a half old before I switched to the Mod Stock. The upper is still in tact and is my range plinker now.

When we first got patrol rifles (many years ago) they were Colt AR-15 A2 Gov't Carbines. Brand New. We took them out to run them through our paces. Every single rifle jammed with almost every round for the first couple of mags. Finally started to loosen up and we would have jams only once or twice per mag. After about 500 rounds per gun they would start to run smoothly. I felt better, then took two of them to a school. Both crapped out in the school. Only rifles that crapped out. There were guys with old M16A1s, bushies, RRA, and even an Oly. All ran fine except for the new Colts. It was pretty embarrassing.

Bought my 6920, had the same problems up until about 500 rounds in. Lost faith in that gun also. Decided to build one and haven't looked back since.

Current Patrol Rifle ... started as an M&P15-A, which as been more or less upgraded/modified to an X model. It has the Troy rails, with Magpul covers. I run an Aimpoint Comp M2, and a Surefire G series light. It's a Vicker's 2 point sling, and lets see ... MIAD grip, and a sweet Young Manufacturing hard chromed M16 bolt and carrier. I have an AFG that's on there now. Oh, and it has the KNS pins and some other odds and ends too.

Cop Talk

And this was the other patrol rifle ... a USGI M14 made by H&R Arms. Had the blonde birch stock, and was bone stock, down to the happy switch when I first got it. When they took it away to give to a guy who didn't have a rifle, it was like a death in the family, followed by the urge to commit workplace violence on a biblical scale. I am over it now ... sort of ...

Cop Talk

And the whole long gun stable ...

Department Issued Bushmaster XM15E2S. I am somewhat limited on what I can I add to or modify so......

I added a Vicker's padded sling & Surefire M500 handguard light. The previous Officer to whom the rifle had been issued to added the CAA cheekrest on the buttstock. I am luke warm on it's practicality, but giving it a fair assessment before I decide whether or not to keep it.
Cop Talk

Since I was recently put in charge of the firearms program, I will make an effort to allow personally owned rifles. If so, I will swithc out to my personal gun...Colt 6933 (11.5" bbl), MagPul rear stock, Knights UVX handguard rail, Vicker's sling, LaRue rear sight, Aimpoint Micro T1 and Surefire Scout light.

How is that aimpoint pro working out for you? I have been seriously considering getting one.
