    Colt Canada C-8A2 with 3 point sling with Surefire Scout light and tape switch. Everything in these photos is issued. Everything I will be adding on shortly I purchased.

    Next week when I have time for a range trip to re-confirm zero I will be mounting a rail to the underside of my handguard with a Magpul railed vertical grip and putting my light on the left side of the tri-ad rail (ditching the tape switch and will use the tailcap button.

    I just bought a Tactical Tailor single point sling as well. I'll post more pix next week.

    I hate 'em because it reminds me I live in CA and our chief won't sign leeterhead because Govenor Moonbeam wrote an opinion on his last day in office as AG saying officers have to turn in their weapons when they retire but never said anything about being compensated.

    Gangrel I didn't realize Surefire had a switch that mounted directly to the rail. The one I have you have to put sticky tape on it to put it where you want. Thanks

    I'm enjoying this thread because I can see what patrol officers carry without having to look at only what my local officers carry. None of our full time officers carry their own rifle on duty. I will carry mine once I figure out what stock and sling I want. I am trying to find a decent low cost carbine class to go to.

    Oh, yeah. Being surefire it costs like 70 bucks, of course... It has a pressure and an on/off switch.

    Isn't that the truth...I can't believe Surefire is still getting away charging $350+ for the shotgun fore end. There are more options now than there was 10 years ago. The price should be in the $120 range.

    Thank you:cool:

    Next re-up of our uniform allowance (can be spent on personally owned rifles) I'm planning on a RRA buttstock, Eotech or Aimpoint holosight, and maybe Robar Roguard or NP3 on the BCG. I've got a quick detach Leaper's 6-8" bipod in the mail now. I've read good things about them.

    You need some rail covers on that thing!

    I actually think I have some you can have.

    How do you like it? I am debating between an Imod or a magpul CTR

    Leaning towards the Imod since it appears to be shorter in overall length

    I like it a lot. My buddy has a CTR on his and it just does not sit all that well for me, who knows:dunno:

    Picture coming soon. Will be putting the "finishing touches" on my rifle sometime this week. Finally ordered a light and some other things. Hope to have everything in by the end of the week.

    Personal rifle, but thought I'd throw it in there. I'll be adding a rail section to the handguards soon and mounting my Surefire M931 on it.
