    Just thought I'd share. Got all the stuff in last week. Hope to get out this weekend to run some rounds through it.

    BCM 16" mid-length LW BFH upper
    BCM lower
    BCM bolt carrier group
    BCM Gunfighter Mod4 charging handle
    Magpul MOE stock
    Magpul MOE mid-length fore end
    Magpul MOE+ grip
    Magpul MVG
    Magpul PMAGs
    Magpul 5-section rail
    Surefire X300
    Troy BUIS
    ...will be adding a Magpul ASAP and MS3, and finishing it off with an Aimpoint H1 with Larue mount.

    Looks like a damn nice build. The ONLY thing I'd knock you for is the ASAP and MS3. Invest in a quality 2-point sling and mounts instead.

    Thanks. Why the no-go on the MS3?

    Single point slings are not that great. In fact, I think they're crap, and that's after running an ASAP and MS2 for a year. As a single point, it gives you no support or stabilization for offhand shooting, it flops around when it's hanging on the sling (often leading to a whack in the junk), and gets tangled up easily. The MS2 didn't work well as a 2-point, either, and just wasn't comfortable. Plus, the ASAP is noisy as all hell and drove me nuts.

    Look at a Blue Force Gear VCAS sling or a Viking Tactics VTAC sling. I've switched back to the VTAC padded sling I bought 3 or so years ago, and I won't go back to a single point.

    There are several options for adding QD sling sockets to your stock and hardguards, and that will make adding a VCAS or VTAC sling a lot simpler.

    Yeah, I heard the MS2 had some issues. Thanks for the input.

    The MS2 I had was well made, and worked very well as a single-point sling. The problem lies in the concept of a single point sling, though.

    Darn nice carbine, very well thought out! Congrats Hokie'

    Slings are VERY subjective, what works for one may not for another.

    I have a ASAP and MS2 sling. Love them both. It is nice because the MS2 can function as both a single a double point sling. Gives you the choice on the fly. I have shot for many years with the dual point sling and would never knock it. Just my .02
