Well, finally went down the black rifle road I guess you could say. Bought it recently, and so far, have no rounds through it, but handling it, I don't see any problems I've sometimes read about concerning fit and finish. I've never really seen that problem for myself, but hey, I might just be lucky. Anyway, I left the shop with a Magpul MOE stock put on, and have on order a MIAD grip kit, and MOE forend. I'm going to leave the detachable carrying handle on, and just buy an optic mount to go on top, (snicker all you want, but call me old fashioned, I like the old school carrying handle look.) I have no need for a quad rail either, ( I haven't reached that rank in the Armchair Army), so rails and vertical foregrips and the like serve no purpose to me. It's a range/fun gun, and I'm not trying to fool myself into thinking I'll be clearing a house with this weapon any time soon. Haha. Besides, for a lot of people, not everyone, but most enthusiasts, there is no practical need for a laser, a designator, vertical foregrip, 3 flashlights, a magnifier, 2 optics, and a kitchen sink to be hanging off a gun anyway, regardless of who you are (see: import cars covered bumper to bumper with vinyl stickers). So yeah, keeping it light, simple, and that should do fine. So far all I have on it is the buttstock, but as soon as I get the rest in, as well as pick an optic to throw on it, I'll post some photos. Wish me luck.
