    I added the quad rail handguard and forward vertical grip a few weeks ago, and yesterday I put on the rail mount sling swivel and light mount with cheapo LED flashlight. For a $10 flashlight, it works really well.

    Not sure if I like the front sling mount or not, its more comfortable, but it kinda looks funny. What do yall think?

    Do you like it?
    Does it serve the purpose you want it to serve?
    That's all that matters, bro. I personally think it looks pretty good, but there's something strange about that flashlight, I just can't put my finger on it.

    There's nowhere near enough crap bolted to that rifle for a mall ninja. Please try again. It will also need to be coyote brown or if you think you're cool enough dark earth.

    Because if you wrap your hand around that vertical fore-grip, a left-handed person's thumb is in the ideal place to press the end-cap to actuate the light while keeping his thumb wrapped around the fore-grip for a more secure hold.

    The way you have it, you can certainly do it as a right-handed person - you'll just have a much less secure grasp on that fore-grip.

    The US Marines and other "organizations", teach "forward thumb up". This way you aren't twisting your wrist, it's proven that if both hands are in line, motor response is more precise and natural.

    I shoot "thumbs forward" with a vertical grip similar to a pistol. If I wrap my thumb around the vertical grip I tend to dump shots to the weakside when I get in a hurry. Doesn't happen if I keep my thumb on the retaining nut of the grip.

    I guess that makes sense. However, I put the light on the left side so that when it shines, the beam is centered to my line of sight, rather than offset. Whether or not it makes a difference, I dont know, but it seemed logical at the time. :D
