Sweet and simple, Stag Mod. 2 and PSA LW Mid. Will eventually add an optic to at least one of them.

These are from a few years back. It was one of a T&E sample run. The polymer of the "smoke" and "clear" PMags wasn't up to Magpul standards and they never made production.

They are cool, but yeah translucent isnt as strong, I use to work at a company that did injection molding.

Dedicated CMMG .22 LR upper build. Runs like a top, and too much fun to shoot. With current ammo prices and availability a setup like this is a must if you like to shoot a lot.

That looks like a PWS upper. Their gas blocks bolt straight to the railed handguard, so I'm not sure how much heat transfer there is between the two. It might get hot enough to damage the MBUS.

It is a PWS ar first I thought it was a Larue 11.0 the MBUS should be ok as long as its not directly over the gas block, if it was a piston ar then it would get much hotter.

Not a railed GB
Also,....several have used a MBUS on a railed block without it
melting. I prefer to use Troy flips or DD fixed sights. The the MBUS is solid.

It is a PWS MK116, those are the sights that came with it. There are other sights that I would like to get for it along with a Vortex HD 1-4x optic but I am currently trying to afford my first suppressor so it will have to wait.

That all depends on how much you shoot. I run MBUS sights on most of my guns on floated rails. I have seen an MBUS melt on a gasblock in a class with a high volume of fire. Granted, it took a while, but they can/will melt.

I can see it happening in a carbine class, however,
99% here will never attend a class.

Updated pic of my Noveske with it's new stock, I can't remember ever posting one after I got it installed. Still not sure of the XTM panels on this one, I may just get some FDE ladders and call it good.

Thanks wrench, I've been very fortunate over the last year or so with my additions but yours leave me envious.

Also I hope you are mistaken on that percentage. For those people that haven't taken any classes sell a gun or two and take one! I have had the opportunity to take a great number of classes thru the years and actually try to plan my vacation time around them. Some people go to "game" and some people go to see what works and doesn't work. It's a great opportunity to test your gear in lieu of running around your living room saying to yourself how good this gun or gear feels. It's a whole lot different when running, shooting in the dark, or if you're lucky enough in a 360deg environment. I often come back from a class after trying a few things out whether it be guns, holsters or optics and put them in the "sell" pile and try and improve (or streamline) my kit.
