    I will say the picture isn't much; it's a naked carbine with nothing but a stock. Most everything else is in boxes or in the mail. Bad news today though, the PRO is back ordered.
    Guess you will need to learn how to shoot with iron sights then.

    I got stuck in court all day, and did not have the chance to go to the shop and play with my latest pet project. That just ticks me off.

    It's all hearsay until we see pictures.

    Your credibility is circling the drain.

    You're a moderator and you can't figure out how to upload a pic?

    You're going to have to be careful, you might burn your hand after a few rounds.... ;)
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    Yup, its the new light weight version. It offers better cooling and less drag for tactical situations.


    I left the hand guard off because I still have a piece of rail coming I need to install before I put it on the gun, I should have that in hand in a day or two. I did put that short stubby forward grip on from Magpul, which had been previously against my religion. I was dead set against forward grips on an AR, but I changed my mind after spending a little time with a friends gun.
    SO, all I have to do is wait for the brown truck of glory to show up to the shop and delivery my happiness. (That and to locate a PRO from a distributor that I have an account with)

    I like forward grips on my AR's. Of course, I also had one on my 16 pretty much my whole time in aside from Boot Camp, where we had A2's. For me, they make the weapon more controllable, and where they really start to shine is in CQB IMO.

    Also generally speaking, I think they make properly using a WML easier (sans pressure pad). I just make sure the light is in a spot where it is natural for the thumb to reach for activating the tail cap.

    I have a few spare one lying around if you want to try out some different sized ones.

    The picture is kinda blurry, but is that the uber-tacticool white spider on your BCG? I hear just having that painted on there gives you an extra 30 rounds per minute capability. Kinda like a Edelbrock sticker on an old chevy.

    Forward grips are a huge benefit for me. When running the gun hard I can use it more like a handstop, but when I'm using it indoors or searching, I can wrap my fingers around it, bend my elbow a bit more and use my thumb to activate my light or laser, if so equipped. My hand always goes to the same place, without fail.

    Also, it's great for barricade support. When your running hard and getting into position fast, it's a real benefit, for me at least. I've tried running slick and tried hand stops and AFG's, and after a serious effort I went back to very grips, mainly the Tango Down stubby, non-QD.

    Oh, and Roger, the owner of Battle Arms Development (the Bad-ASS selectors I use) just sent me one of his 45 degree selectors. I like the OEM 45 degree selector on the SCAR since its positioned a bit higher, and this me is nice so far but it'll take some getting used to. I'll start a thread about it this week and update over the month I'm committed to running it before I decide if it's for me or not.

    LOL, yeah that is the dreaded white spider. It acts as the trunk monkey of the AR world. You do not need to take care in lining up your sights, just point in the general direction and the spider takes care of the rest. I think I might have it gold inlayed to match my tooth.

    More, but slow, progress.



    I ended up moving the forward grip a little more forward than what is pictured here, it probably wont stay there either.
