    Really nice build! I just finished a Mega build in 7mm-08. How do you like the Mega trigger?

    I have the Gear Sector Mount ordered--putting the Surefire G2 LED on it.

    That looks just like my Alexander Arms Single-Stage Tactical Trigger. I wonder if Mega makes it for them.

    That's an awesome build. I have a Mega upper on a Spikes lower, with a Lothar-Walther barrel.

    I still haven't decided whether to keep the AFG on my carbine.

    Is that to say, you have a rifle length gas system on a 14.5" barrel? Can you describe the "Afghan Barrel" for us that are slow on the up-take?:supergrin:

    No, mid length gas system with a rifle length rail. The rifle length rail covers up the gas block. I think it also gives it the SBR look a little--in NYS, that's the closest I'll get to a SBR look, :rofl:

    Weight has me curious too. Not crazy about the trigger but that's a damn fine looking gun. Get it on a scale and let us know what it weighs.
