and did you seriously remove a $200+ free float rail from one of the industries finest companies and slap on a Delta Ring retained no free float handguard?!

Yep, even with index clips it bugged me. besides its intent was 3 gun, don't need attachment points period.
However the quad rail is being used for my 6.8 upper that is on hold since I picked the wrong time to build it. ( still waiting on my barrel that I ordered pre Newton and a BCG)

If you're going to shoot three gun I'd imagine you want something that free floats... a Troy industries alpha tube? PRI?

I get it now, but still, delta ring retained handguards on a competition/precision build are a bad idea.

and your rear sight is still on backwards.

The MBUS is a simple aperture sight.. The hole doesn't know right to Left, Front to Back


You might view it as sacrilege (the handguard), but it works for me, I'm not shooting hi power.

Indeed, however, in the current configuration you are needlessly reducing your sight radius by about an inch...

do whatever you want, I'm not trying to argue with you... it just bugs me, but I am somewhat OCD about guns...

I would love to post picks of my ARs but sadly they and all my ammo were lost in a tragic boating accident.

Looks like double hearing protection.

I'm envious.

Wasn't too loud, it does get your attention though.

Makes a guy grin...

New tube by the end of the week, and then start saving pennies for a laser.

avs11054, kimberkid is correct. The AR in the pic is a pistol build.

I built it up on a lower that I had purchased as a stripped lower.

Something to be aware of that some folks may not realize, placing a short barreled upper on a rifle lower is a no no in the eyes of the ATF. Felony type no no. Unless the background check, paperwork, tax stamp, engraving, etc are done.

I've noticed quite a few short uppers being sold lately, it would definately be prudent to research the laws concerning AR pistols and short barreled rifles.

So do you need a tax stamp for the shorter barrel for a pistol build?

No. It's a pistol, just like any other. If you put that upper on a rifle lower, then yes, you'd need a SBR stamp. Otherwise, it's just a pistol.
