That paint looks GREAT Jon!
This is a discussion on *Official DC AR15 picture thread* within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; That paint looks GREAT Jon!...
Just jumped off my Truck Gun thread......and NOW I'm more convinced I need a nice basic AR(want a Colt)that I can add stuff to over time. The wife's onboard presently..have to keep that vibe going. That WalMart Colt,the LE6920(in the other thread) is a good base rifle to begin with!

The new Zombie Hunter. Just put a cheap Tasco on it to make it useable for prairie doggin'. Gotta save up for that Vortex Viper that I really want.
I wanted a stubby VFG without spending $3034873524. I hate to say it, Tapco's offering seems to be pretty decent. Yeah, it's not a name brand popular with the elite group of operators But the thing works. I have the Magpul RFG, but I just didn't like it, or the way it looked. I tried to cut the RFG down to a handstop, but screwed up REAL bad, haha. But the Tapco stubby VFG is good to go in my book :)
RKM, what flashlight is that?
I am considering putting one on mine down the road.
RKM, here is my attempt at chopping down my Magpul RVG.

I've been going back and forth, back and forth between a stubby VFG and a Magpul AFG. Ran an KAC handstop for about 10 seconds. The mount screw is very uncomfortable. I like the shape and size of the KAC, but if it just mounted differently, it would be great. Handstops are just so incredibly expensive for what they are.
I tried cutting down an AFG. It worked great but I didn't like how the back was then hollow from being cut. So I cut it down further so it was just the front 1/4 part, where your pointer finger would rest against. I turned it back wards and then locked it onto the rail with ladder guards on each side. It resembles the Gear Sector handstop. But... back to VFG's I am. I like the way rifles look with handstops, or nothing at all. Very minimalistic. But I just keep coming back to VFG's.
